For everyone that loves the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich lockscreen found on the Galaxy Nexus I have a treat for you today. The popular lockscreen replacement application Widget Locker has just received a huge update that brings many new features, the biggest being a new Ice Cream Sandwich unlock option. It works great on phones and tablets both so check it out.

That isn't all we have either -- this update also brings new Sense 3.0 and Honeycomb unlock options, hardware acceleration and full Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich support. Once devices hit the market if you are one of the few that doesn't like the new lockscreen, simply use Widget Locker to go back to something more original.

If you are unfamiliar with Widget Locker the image above should give you a good idea. You have the standard ICS unlock option, but right on that screen you can slide to unlock and instantly access anything you'd like. Everything is customizable and we can have camera, text, browser, email, market and more all added to your homescreen as sliders. Then instantly head to any application you choose right from the unlock screen. It really is an awesome application and you should check it out if you like customizing your Android or want to make it feel new again. Another nice new feature with the latest update is Unlock-With-WiFi compatibility.

For those wanting to try some Ice Cream Sandwich on your own lockscreen or any of the many awesome features you can get Widget Locker right now in the Android Market for just $2.99
