Revamp Your Android Lock Screen With Microsoft’s New App

If you haven’t heard, Microsoft has kicked open the doors to its experimental Garage development hub, and among the projects now available for beta testing is the Next Lock Screen app for Android.

Lock screen customization is nothing new, but this effort from Redmond is worth a look for the way it brings information, apps and settings right to your front screen.

Essentially, it’s all about what you want to do next, so the name of the app makes sense. Once you’ve got it up and running on your device, it sits on top of your existing lock screen—so a PIN or pattern will still be required to get into your smartphone, if you have those security features enabled.
