I have been using it all day and don't notice any significant battery life drop. Really hoping this .893 update helps battery life too
At present I'm going without and battery life has improved. I'll give it a couple of days and then use Widget Locker again. I hope the isn't a battery problem as I like having a flashlight and camera on the lock screen, plus being able to pull down the notification bar and go to an email.
As much as I loved Widdget locker, had to give it up because of battery drain. TrYing Magiclocker. Battery life is better but now I miss the customization of WL. Ill try it again if you all say battery life is better.

This is fantastic news. I'm going to see if a few others chime in before I re-dl and spend time setting up etc etc. Really hope others report the same...
I don't see any dip w my battery while using widget locker. Have beautiful weather widget, time-date, and audio pro on my lock screen. Great app!

I've known of WidgetLocker for quite some time. Was never interested in "customizing" my lock screen. Seemed pretty silly actually.
But, now that I have WL, and have it set to Sense 3 theme, I realize:
- How many times a day I unlock my phone, and making that task easier really adds up
- How easy it is to swipe-to-open with the Sense 3 theme - when one-handing my phone, there's no more awkward thumb actions (reaching across the screen to grab the unlock widget when holding it righty, or scrunching up my thumb to grab it when holding it lefty)
- How quickly I can get to my camera - just 1 swipe!
- How convenient it is to view Beautiful Widget info without having to unlock the phone
My hats off to the developer of this app!
