A collection of original and beautiful lock screens

Sparky's is a collection of lock screens for your Android, beautifully designed and easily changeable with a couple of taps. Themes are pretty original, ranging from doughnuts to cinema tickets, and every one has its own way to work. Some are funny, others are elegant instead, but all look clean and neat.

It's also appreciated the chance to test a lock screen before actually setting it up. Likewise, a brief settings menu allows to turn on and off the unlock sound, choose time settings between 12 and 24h modes and hide or unhide the status bar. As you can see, a few yet useful options to customize your unlocker.

Lastly, your new unlock screen will show lost calls and incoming messages and allows one-gesture access to them. Sparky Lock Screen is an example about how to easily customize an Android device in a useful way without flashy or complex "3D retro-futuristic-barroque multi-faceted" apps.

You can check the free version if you wish and test the first two of the available unlock screens.

Sparky Lock Screen - FAQ
----------------------------------

>Why do I experience a delay sometimes before the lock screen appears?
Android OS imposes a 5 second delay to launch a screen from a background service after pressing HOME key.
So if you press HOME and immediately turns off the screen and then turn it on before the 5 seconds expires there will be a delay before launching the lock screen. This is a rare situation and the only scenario where there is a delay.

>I want more themes, is it possible?
Sure, we are working on many new themes and features. Please suggest new themes on contact@sparkymobile.com.

    Themes r limited, & I really hate the fact that without the notification at the top the lock screen won't work.

    Not be able to securely look the handset is the only reason why it isn't a 5 star I love the lockscreens but would love for it to actually be locked!

    Will get better once a myriad of themes become available. The limitation is quite boring. Although, I am really loving the functionality.

    Love it but have changed to a galaxy s4 and it refuses to stick as the lock screen despite being activated. Please fix and then back to 5 stars. In response your question the show notification option was not enabled and enabling this seems to make it work. I'll use for a few days and see if this does resolve it. If it does can this be amended as I would rather not have the notification there all

    Combined with my beautiful HTC one. This lock screen is the best. However they hardly update the themes. It's sad that their is only about a handful to chose from.

    This is working great on my galaxy s4, it's worth paying the 2.99. You get quite a few different lock screens to choose from.
