Microsoft had launched a new lock screen app for Android phones. It is called Next Lock Screen and it is a Microsoft Garage project which saves you time with quick app launch and access to the information you need. It’s a time saver lock screen built for busy professionals. See your calendar, missed calls, email and text messages all at a glance. Connect to a conference call in a single tap without unlocking your phone.
Next Lock Screen even surfaces the apps you use most based on your location.
- Calendar: quick glance at your day and scroll through upcoming meetings and their location to plan your day at a glance.
- One swipe to dial: Next Lock Screen dials you in a conference call, enters the PIN and gets you talking without effort.
- Quick app launch: Whether on the go, at home or at work, Next Lock Screen shows your most used apps based on your location and your apps are right there for quick access.
- Make it yours: Make your lock screen background dynamic throughout the day by having the background change depending of your location.
As of now the lock screen is limited to US only, but you can install the app using the APK. Download the APK from the link below. You can also install from Play store.
