The Live Lock Screen app for Windows Phone 8.1 is finally available for download
Next to Cortana, one of the most interesting Windows Phone 8.1 features revealed by Microsoft during the Build 2014 conference was the lock screen app. This piece of code allows users to change the lock screen animation of their handsets and its Beta version is now finally available for download.
Two days ago, Joe Belfiore revealed in a Twitter message that anyone can try the new app for free. His tweet reads the following: "Happy Friday... come try the Live Lock Screen BETA for WP8.1! Enjoy!" and some of the replies he got uncovered two interesting facts.
First, the app also works with devices that have only 512 MB of memory, while Microsoft claims it needs at least 1 GB. Second, it looks like Live Lock Screen Beta has some performance issues as more users complained about this on both Twitter and YouTube after installing the app on various handsets.
The Live Lock Screen app for Windows Phone 8.1 comes in a 4 MB package and offers six new lock screens, each with a design including a unique unlock animation, time, date, and notifications.
