    I have seen tons of shortcut apps for settings etc, but have yet to find one that can throw you to the the lock screen.

    Anyone else?

    thanks

    nope but it might not be possible -yet. Only with GDR3 was a shortcut to battery saver possible but at the same time developers couldn't created a shortcut to
    audio setting -yet, now that would be nice.

    My newest app, toggleboard, includes a lock screen shortcut!
    You can download it at toggleboard | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States).
    Enjoy!

    You mean lockscreen settings?
    Try Insider (Pro is the version I've got and working).

    I think this is to the settings screen. I was looking for the lock screen itself.

    I second what iAdrian23 said above. Insider Pro is a swiss army type app where you have access to all types of things. It really is a multiple apps in one type of thing. You have direct access to several features and you can even pin the shortcut to certain features onto your homescreen. One of the features you can pin is what your're looking for...Lockscreen access.

    As far as I know, you can't lock the screen using a third-party app, per se, but there are a lot of apps out there that allow access to lockscreen settings.

    I second (third?) Insider for this purpose.

    So......you want to waste screen real estate on a tile, that you will have to scroll up and down the screen to get to......instead of just pushing the power button?
