Agile Lock is a Sense-Like Lock-Screen for Any Android Phone


There are lots of things to like about the third iteration of HTC Sense UI. One of my favorite features is the elegant and functional lock-screen that lets you not only unlock your device, but quick-launch an app at the same time.

While the functionality of Agile Lock isn’t exactly the same, the appearance and ability to quick-launch apps from your lock-screen is there. To unlock the phone you drag the “lock circle” upwards. To unlock and launch an app, drag the desired icon into the “lock circle” to unlock your smartphone and launch the app. Pretty slick!

Although there is a “free” version, it seems a little suspicious to me: you have to “earn points” to unlock it. The easiest way to earn points is by downloading other apps.

If you like the app, I’d recommend uninstalling the “free” version and replacing it with the reasonably priced “paid” version.

For those of you with HTC Sense, how do you think this lock-screen compares to yours? For those of you who have a custom lock-screen please let us know about it in the comments!
