    Thanks, but I can't get that to work. I've got LauncherPRO set as my default home, so tapping home (while unlocked) just brings up the previews menu, and a double tap will bring it up and send it back.

    More importantly, though, while locked (in WidgetLocker), either single or double-tapping home just exits out of WL and takes me to the default lockscreen.

    So, long-press search is the only way (for my setup) to access QD whether unlocked or in WL...

    i think you have something wrong. even with your setup... WHILE LOCKED and on the WL screen.... double tapping home quickly should bring up QD. i tested it with LP as my default home locked with WL two quick taps brought up DQ immediately. try it again :D

    Don't know what else to do. Tapping home quickly or slowly exits out of WL and displays the stock lockscreen. Sucks you can't reproduce the issue, but it is still happening on my device. I appreciate your efforts, however :)

    EDIT: I've even tried increasing/decreasing the double-tap time in QD settings...doesn't matter. Every time I wake my phone up to the WL lockscreen, double-tapping home makes WL close and the default lockscreen appear.

    DOUBLE EDIT: Here's a thought...should it matter that I'm on 2.2? nevermind, I just read that someone is running Froyo BB with nextheme and not experiencing this issue...

    I've found that it's best to add widgets like that by opening up the app directly while the phone is unlocked. Then you can go through the setup and take as long as you need.

    validoption--I don't think it's a 2.2 thing cos I'm on 2.1 unrooted and can't get the double tap QD thing to work either (also using LP). What about putting QD shortcut on WL screen?
    Going to try Widgetlocker based on this thread particularly dev involvement probably tomorrow.

    Okay I just released 1.0.1. That version number is very small but there's a lot of changes!

    Lots of bug fixes, particularly with WidgetLocker not being activated causing the system keyguard to appear at screen on and causing easy wake to not work.
    Also I switched the default behavior (it's now a setting, default off) of requiring an unlock to open an activity via a widget.
    It's also faster to start. The big exception is right after you hit the Home key. There's some security that prevents an activity from starting with ~3 seconds of Home starting. I'm looking into it further.
    I removed landscape mode. Sorry for those of you that liked it. Orientation changes were causing some weird behaviors that I haven't yet been able to work out. I'll add it in the future but make it a setting as I know some people dislike landscape mode.
    I switched the slider icon when you are in setup mode rather than lockscreen mode. This is to make it less confusing.

    A lot more settings, including allowing long-press of search for you QuickDesk users.

    I still have some work to do, but I wanted to get all the bug fixes out there. As always feedback is welcome, both here and on the Market comment system (preferably positive there ;)).

    Kevin,

    Love the update. I actually really like this app, but had to inactivate it last week because it was just eating up too much memory and fighting with launcherpro and I couldn't run it. Kept it because I knew there would be updates that would fix it, and I believe that is the case now. I've been playing around with it trying to overload it into a Force Close, and its not happening, which is great.

    I have noticed one thing. I'm not sure the 'Require System Keyguard' setting is working correctly. I am using Beautiful Weather Home as the only widget in this app, and when I wake the phone, even when I have that setting activated, it still goes into the selected areas when I hit the weather icon, time, or date on BW. Could be that I completely misunderstood what you meant by that description, but I figured I would point that out.

    Other than that, I love it. Enabling any hardware button to wake the phone is nice. Gets me back to the settings I was used to on my old LG phones before I got the Droid.

    Could I make one suggestion. Could you make it an option on whether we can have the swipe icons in either the standard stock location or the bottom like you have it now? As I said, I only use one widget with this, and it just looks unbalanced the way its set up now.

    Ahh I should have made this clear. Easy Wake necessarily bypasses the system keyguard because the keyguard is what normally prevents other buttons from waking the phone. So "Require System Keyguard" doesn't work with Easy Wake.

    I think your reason for wanting it is because you don't want to accidentally launch something? I'm planning a way of disabling widgets until some action is done, all within the lockscreen. It'll also be handy for toggle widgets that you don't want to touch in your pocket, like TeslaLED.

    Makes sense. I have some ideas on how best to do this that I'll see about adding for 1.1.

    Oh thats fine. I mainly just want the lock screen to be like a piece of paper where the only thing I can do is swipe to unlock or mute/unmute. I still want the widgets to run, but I want all interaction with them to be disabled.

    Once again, thanks for the app. Its a great little thing!
