I have always felt the default Android Lockscreen looks boring, if only I could change it. And then I came across a few apps which did that, both free and paid, the free ones weren’t nearly as good as the paid alternative, Widgetlocker. However, we are not going to discuss all those apps, let me quicklyÂ introduce you to a wonderful app called MagicLocker.
What makes it special is the fact that it has many beautiful themes, some of which are customizable.The list of themes available include iphone, HTC, Samsung themes, etc.
Here is the default theme: (The right eye moves from side to side, while the left one glows and the unlock button blinks.)
Best of all, MagicLocker is free and doesn’t require root, what are you waiting for?
Download it from appbrain: MagicLocker Main
You can also get the Android Ice Cream Sandwich Ring lock on your phone with Magic locker. Take a look at it, gorgeous isn’t it?
Here is the link for the theme: Android4free-MagicLockerThemeÂ

2. Set it as the default app for your home button, it will work fine and not disable your home launcher. This is required to run the app without problems.
3. Installing a theme, click on the downloaded theme, its actually an apk and will open. Click on the “Install theme” button and follow tip 1 to enable it.
