Slide2Unlock2, or simply S2U2, received a nice update today that brings several new changes to the popular screen locking application. Version 2.30 gives the user the ability to change the location of the unlock slider to either left or center. Centering it makes it look and act similar to the standard Windows Mobile 6.5 slider where you can slide either left or right to unlock. A slide to dismiss feature has also been added for incoming messages and reminders.
S2U2 has been integrated with WinMo 6.5 as well so when you press the lock soft-key in the Star menu, it will now activate S2U2. Another change users have been waiting for is TouchFLO 3D music player support, which lets you play music when the screen is off/locked. As always, grab S2U2 from A_C’s website. Discussion thread is also available on XDA-developers. Check out the full list of changes and bug fixes below.
