Unlock Screen

Apple’s “Slide to Unlock” was pretty famous and trade mark of apple, and had   even caught eyes of t shirt designers as well. But Apple seems to be impressed with Android and has taken the Android features into its new operating systems iOS 7. Android gives you freedom to unlock in any direction while iOS puts you a restriction on to slide the screen only upwards.
