With the advent of android, iOS, windows, doors, megatrons, sunscreens (just assuming!), one thing is certain that only change is constant. Millions of applications available on scores of app stores are witnesses to the insatiability of customers. No matter how well-designed a smartphone is, we long for smarter. Considering those cravings, we aim to be your handy review on the latest apps in market. To start with, we present to you a list of some free lock screen apps to suit your needs and the desire for change.
Hi Locker is one lock screen app that is simple, customizable and suits people who like to stick to the basics. It not only displays date, time, weather information, notifications and calendar events, but also greets you! You can hide notifications to avoid them being seen by the restricted few. Hi Locker comes with random wallpapers from Flickr and fingerprint support that makes it completely in lieu with the raging technology of the latest smartphones in market. Not just this, you can swipe into customized applications directly from your lock screen.
This application is more appealing than others when it comes to the attractive themes it offers. Go Locker is similar to all other lock screen apps, otherwise. It displays time, weather and slider option to access other applications from the lock screen. There can be provisions to allow more app access from the lock screen. That was one limitation I found but if you can do without it then this is one lock screen you won’t regret installing.
The former DIY Locker, this lock screen app remains the most sought-after. It lets you design your own lock screen with better customization options. Like every other lock-screen, it offers myriad wallpapers, passcodes and widgets to make your experience basic but with the power to control. What I found interesting was that the boring dots of a pattern lock can be replaced by customized pictures. The launch lag is a problem with this app.
SCREEN LOCK GUARDIAN
Screen Lock Guardian is an app for those who don’t just want a lock screen that protects their privacy but that also catches the intruder. Yes, it will capture the privacy-invader by the front camera so the owner knows who tried to access it. It also displays the last access to the device just to ensure more security. High-end and too cocky, isn’t it? Nevertheless, it has been touted as one of the most secure lock screen apps that also features all basic customization options with quick launch facility for up to five apps but not very attractive when it comes to theme selection.
Locker Master is for those who like things bent on creativity. This stylish lock screen app offers interactive live wallpapers, themes, and pattern and PIN unlock. What’s more is that it features animated weather forecast and a built-in flashlight. Coming to the creativity, the DIY editor lets you design your own lock screen with a range of options to explore.
