I really don't like the new unlock screen because the pattern is too low on the screen and can't be relocated. I could deal with horizontal motion if we had an option to put it at a comfortable position. That's why I prefer the 2.0 unlock screen. And I'm not sure what type of magical fingers others have, but using an arc motion on the horizontal screen does not unlock it.
Someone mentioned an unlock screen with customizable app slots...that sounds pretty cool.
I hope we get better options soon.
