All Windows Phone 8.1 users can now get their hands on Microsoft’s just released lock screen app called Live Lock Screen. If you want to add a bit of color and animation to your normally boring lock screen, this app’s a pretty good one to switch to (despite the fact that its currently in beta).
The app lets you pick from one of six new lock screen layouts each of which have a unique design. The layouts display the date, time, notifications along with a unique unlock animation. You can also set the lock screen to cycle between multiple background images from your photo collection to keep things fresh every time you access your phone. You also have the option of picking a stunning image from Bing every day, if that’s something you find inspiring.
Thankfully, the Live Lock Screen is available for low end devices too despite Microsoft’s initial surmise that the app would require at least 1 GB RAM or more to run. You can download Live Lock Screen from the Windows Phone Store for the price of free and tell us what you think of it.
