CyanogenMod 6.1 RC5 Brings Lockscreen Gestures To The Motorola Droid

cm-lockscreen3CyanogenMod is a very popular custom ROM in the Android modding scene. The ROM is based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) and is built completely from sources. The advantage of CyanogenMod (CM) ROM’s are that it removes all the bloat ware from the phone and is generally based on the latest version of Android. Readers who want to know more about CyanogenMod ROMs can read this.

CM ROMs are available for a wide variety of handsets and include a lot of nifty new tricks. Now, the latest version of CM6.1 RC5 for the original Droid has added another new nifty feature lock screen gestures. Lock screen gestures will allow users to directly start their favorite app or service right from the lock screen with the help of a gesture on the screen.

As of now, this new nifty feature is available only on the Motorola Droid. However, I am pretty sure this feature will find its way in many more CM builds for various other handsets.
