Except for the transparency, that application (which I have installed on Treo 680 and love btw) looks nothing like this new sliding keyguard. This is the true the iPhone rip-off application while the Nexave application is more of an enhanced Treo-style keyguard.

This makes my already cool Centro look even cooler (and by extension, Butler too!). I love the transparency. I'm able to get SMS messages or hit any application button (including the opt+ buttons) and see the screen through the dim keyguard without having to unlock. Very cool!

I get a kick out of having the option of getting a little "iPhone" feel from the phone once in a while. But I always go back to just hitting the center button to unlock. It's just so much easier.

But hey, nothing wrong with copping a feel from the iPhone interface just for kicks! LOL

Great job, Butler people!
