App: Next Lock Screen

Many smart phone owners user passwords that often require a lock screen. The default lock screens are not bad but with apps available for free on play store one can make their lock screen sparkle. Microsoft’s Garage project lets employees develop Android apps in their spare time, which is very fair­-minded of the company. One of the best­known results of this scheme is Next Lock Screen, and this new version adds fingerprint scanning, provided your phone supports it; Smart Contacts and Smart Lock settings that let you configure how you unlock your device; and even location-­sensitive wallpaper that changes automatically, depending on where you are. Other useful features include detailed notifications that show all your missed calls, text messages and app alerts without you needing to “wake” your phone. Since Next Lock Screen looks different to the standard Android layout, it effectively forces you to relearn your homescreen, which is jarring, but it has already amassed many devotees and recently won a “best lockscreen app for Android” award. Using it is almost like having a new phone without needing to pay for the upgrade.
