    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.

    Just completed Day 2 with WidgetLocker. Absolutely no difference in battery drain across the past 2 days. GREAT app!

    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!

    I may actually get this again then. I can not stand things in my notification bar. In my notification bar I want, you know...notifications, not an app icon.

    Yesterday I had the phone on without Widget Locker for 14 hours and ended up at about 30%. With Widget Locker (non updated version) the phone would've been dead 3 hours ago. Again, this is the non updated version. I'll go a couple of days more without the app and then activate it again in order to see what the battery life is like. I hope it works as I really liked the features it had as I liked having the camera and flashlight easy to access as well as able to read an email without having to unlock.

    Any updates on battery usage? I really want to change my lock screen but not if it kills the battery.

    Just a heads up I messaged Amazon asking if they could update the app... surprisingly it is now at its latest version.
    0.0
