So, it’s here!! Microsoft has released much-awaited Lock Screen app for Windows Phone 8.1 devices. The app is named “Live Lock Screen” and offers some beautiful animated lock screen themes. My personal favorite is that “Time Dialler” like rotating theme!! It shows live animations on Lock Screen and while unlocking too. Though other themes show animation only when you unlock the phone. Here are your options for customizing your lock screen,
- You can choose themes out of six options provided by Microsoft for now, a number, which we hope will grow with time.
- You can choose images from your collection, accent colors and lock screen images provided and add these to the collection as shown in above screenshots or you can use Bing images.
- You can also chose from five available time-interval options for the background image to refresh automatically from your collection or from Bing images.
What we didn’t like,
Kid’s corner needs to be turned off for using Lock Screen and vice-versa.
You can’t set the image of your liking as Lock Screen and can just add to collection. The app will change them as per the period defined.
There may be minor bugs like occasional slow Lock Screen opening behavior, but this is Beta after all. Good news is its availability for all devices regardless of RAM.
