    Hey DMG, thanks for letting us test this and give feedback!

    Good:

    The message notifucations finally work for me.

    Though I miss my awesome landscape wallpaper, I do prefer having the app locked in portrait.

    Like the way it works with the lock button now. At first I was upset that there was no lock option in the menu list anymore, but now it makes sense!

    Operation is smooth!


    Not so good:

    It is no longer possible to override the music player "off" option. What I mean is that it used to be possible to set the app to not lock on the media player, but to lock when holstered. That way it wouldn't lock when I was playing music until I holstered it. I could also manually lock it in the media player if I wanted to via the menu list option. I can still lock the phone via the lock button, but it only uses the OEM lock. Anyway, could we get the option to manually override with SS if we want? Does this make sense? LOL!

    That is all I have so far...

    ok so I feel like an *****- how am I not able to get it to work with the lock button- I am running OS 517- is that the issue? I dont see that as an option any longer on the menu- I also dont see the back up restore on the menu. I changed all the permissions to allow and rebooted but still nothing. Some guidance would be very much appreciated

    I found a bug, a minor one. If you are watching a movie, and you hit the lock button, it does not activate SS. When you hit the lock button to wake it up, SS is not on the screen. Not sure if the other media apps affect it or not, but will do some checking.

    And that's cool about the security wipe. I thought it might be possible since SmrtGuard can do it remotely, I though you could somehow incorporate it, but I get what you are saying. Like everyone else, I'm giving you suggestions for MY perfect app. Not everyone has the same idea of a perfect app, though.

    Oh, and plus 1,000 for the thumbnail previews for the wallpaper options!

    ok but maybe I was reading wrong but I thought I read that it was working now with the new version

    "If you use the lock button on top of the phone, the screen is completely unclickable instantly, and it automatically activates SS. So the app is now "unstoppable."

    Am I just confused after a really long week

    Maybe I'm missing something too. I thought that with this version, the native lock button would engage SS, not lock the screen also????? I have to push the lock button twice....... 1st push locks the screen, 2nd push unlocks the screen and brings up the SS screen. Really to me this doesn't make any sense; would it not make more sense to have the native lock button start SS directly?

    I heard of the supposed bug with OS 5 but some how PatternLock made it work the way I believe it should, immeadiatley engage the lock program with out locking the screen 1st.

    Am I out in left field here or just missing an option of some sort?

    I would like to clear some things with the lock button....

    When RIM released 5.0 they made a bunch of changes with the way the device locks. They way it worked before you would lock the app and the developer could catch that action and reverse it and do what they wanted to do. With 5.0 the OS locks instantly before the developer can have any say in the matter. Once the device is locked the apps seem to render useless. So when you press the lock button you will get the default lock on every 3rd party application.

    StormSlider will indeed launch on Lock Button but if you press the lock button you will have to press the lock button again to unlock the phone and then slide to unlock. I know it used to be different but it seems like RIM is trying to increase their security by changing the way they do things.

    Why would you NOT want it to lock the screen? That was ppl's biggest complaint with some of the prior versions.

    thank you for clearing that up- setting it to zero on dim did the trick- I no longer see the back up option- does it just do this automatically? And I am still trying to get owners info on there when locked-

    ok, a mention of the bugs i've come across so far:

    1. the animation exiting out of stormslider isnt the same.... previously the top and bottom parts would slide out of the screen, followed by the wallpaper zooming out.... now its just the entire app zooming out.

    2. the battery charging icon doesnt update properly, even if i exit stormslider and lock again.... took a while before it updated to show the actual charge level.

    3. i don't see any backup/restore options in the menu.... i've tried uninstalling, battery pull, reinstalling, and still no backup/restore...

    4. slide to unlock text disappears the moment u start sliding the button.... again, i dont think this was the way it worked before.

    5. can't disable berryweather integration.... i hate that icon on the top left, just seems out of place.

    6. stormslider doesn't appear until clicking somewhere on screen, when timeout option in enabled.... so if timeout is 1 min, and after 5 min i click on the screen , stormslider will just suddenly appear like it was just activated and not before like it shud have been.

    Tafasa did it with PatternLock. Only implying there are ways to workaround what RIM has changed in their API, not necessarily pointing out that your software is inferior to Tafasa's.
