AAQR: Screenatics Lock Screen Replacement

Screenatics is one of the many lock screen replacements available on the market. This one... Works mostly, but not always.

I test on my Droid with Cyanogen Mod 6.1.2.

Screenatics doesn't always come on, but when it does, it is pretty impressive. Often, the normal lockscreen shows up first, then the screenatics lockscreen displaces it. So this is more of a visual glitch.

The clock and date is on screen, No background, but it's very readable, and it also displays latest text message, latest missed call,  next event in calendar, etc. There are a couple other icons on screen but they don't seem to do anything... Until you do press and hold. In that case, they bring up email, browser, camera, call, or contacts respectively. At the bottom is the slide-to-unlock bar.

The main problem is this doesn't always come on, but then ALL lock screen replacements have this problem: they never seem to work consistently.

The looks is a bit off, and really needs some customization options. The uniform grey background looks horribly boring.

Overall, 7 out of 10 for now.
