    BUMP.

    i was just thinking that this would be a good application in light of the cracked molding!

    i guess it would be good as long as people dont start launching them (like the wii controller)

    I was thinking about how much I hate hitting that power button every time too.
    Shake to wake would prob suck over time though. Would stay awake in your pocket as you walked.
    Without having a better button layout any apps for this would prob keep the phone awake

    "no lock" also allows volume button wake-up ... I think shake-to-wake would need to be supported by the hardware directly, otherwise big battery drain from an app.

    I use No Lock from the App Store. Lets you use the volume key to wake up the phone and bypasses the lock screen. Been using it and doesn't seem to drain the battery at all.

    I've been using Ripple Lock (free) from the app market. It has a "Honeycomb style" unlocker. It also allows you to set the apps you can launch to, (like go directly to the internet, or to the camera, or to text messages, etc).

    It allows you to pull down the notification bar while the phone is still locked, and it allows you to wake the phone up with the volume button.

    It also displays your carrier, the date/time, and your battery level/status. Pretty nice, imo.

    I’ve been using No Lock for a couple months now and thanks to this thread, just learned that the volume buttons will turn my screen back on.
