We Recommend: Get the Jelly Bean Lock-screen on Your Android Device
It’s time to add the latest entry to the list of ported Jelly Bean features. We’ve covered articles about installing Google Now, Google Sond Search or even the Android 4.1 keyboard on your non-Jelly Bean device. Recently we told you about getting the Jelly Bean Status Bar. Let’s complete the list with the Android 4.1 Lock-Screen.
There are plenty of lock-screen replacement apps on the Play Store that can get you the feel of the latest version of Android through themes. Icon packs are also available to emulate the look of Jelly Bean. The team behind Holo Launcher, one of the best custom launchers for ICS and Jelly Bean, offers Holo Locker. Holo Locker is a lock screen replacement app, based on stock Jelly Bean lock screen. It is different from the other lock-screen replacement apps because it is based on the real Android 4.1 launcher and it will give you the same smoothness.
Holo Locker offers some extra useful features you will not find in the standard Jelly Bean lock-screen. The app works in both landscape and portrait modes. In the main screen you can adjust the settings. There is an emergency unlock method using the back+volume down hardware keys in case something goes wrong with the app. Next, you can enable or disable the status bar and vibration feedback. You can also lock the screen orientation to get the same behavior as the standard Google lock-screen.
Holo Locker is offered for Free on the Play Store.
