Ok I think this app sounds kewl but I thought the lock screen was meant 4 just that locking lol o well whatever works right

A very nice app I would use thise wisely and put the weather plus calender on my lock screen. Gimme gimme gimme more !!! I need one please !!!

This Lock app looks cool. Hopefully it works better then the others which are out there. I would love to win it and give it a try.

I'll take a crack at this.thank's for the chance to win this.

Storm 2 9550 and yes i love my blackberry.

OMG!what a cool app..I want this..test it out on my torch..would be super indeed..the ui pics look fantastic..

Since I upgraded to OS6, I miss my old lock screen, which was part of a theme. This is pretty much what I had, and I want itttttt! Please :)

Would be great to have bLOC on my Storm2!
Thanks for the opportunity!

Now this is particularly cool. Wouldn't mind having one. If I don't win (but hoping I do), I'll definitely buy it.

This looks like a great way to keep my Torch from unlocking. The weater widget would come in handy very often for our rainy Seattle weather. Oh and my husband would be so jealous he doesn't have it for his Torch!

I'm not sure what the price point for me on this but three bucks seems about right (free-even better). That said, I tend to often unlock my phone just to look at time and weather data anyways ... Cool feature.
