Awesome Lock

Awesome Lock is a feature rich Windows Phone 8 app that lets you customize your Windows Phone lockscreen. With Awesome Lock you can get the latest news, weather forecasts, calendar events, tasks, Tweets and more straight from your lockscreen.

Awesome Lock was recently updated to version and most notably adds a new user interface to the app. The update also expands selection of news and information sources for your lockscreen giving you more customization options.

The new user interface gives the app a cleaner appearance and a nice flow. Icons are at the top of the screen to quickly toggle between your lockscreen items, photo settings, performance settings and to view the About screen. You still have the option to swipe to the side to move from page to page if you prefer.

Other features of the version update include:

  • The addition of a My Teams option that will let you follow news from your favorite sports leagues (NFL, NBA, MLB, NCAA Football, Soccer, etc.)
  • Adds commodities to your stock watch
  • Adds the ability to select which calendar account to use

The update also improves the Turkish translation and includes a few bug fixes. Overall, the Awesome Lock update makes the app, dare I say, more awesome. Please note that the version update only affects the paid version of Awesome Lock. The free version is still at version

There is a trial version available for Awesome Lock with the full version running $1.49. Awesome Lock is available for Windows Phone 8 and you can find it here in the Windows Phone Store. The free version of Awesome Lock does have some limitations on the amount and type of information you can customize your Windows Phone lockscreen with. You can find the free version of Awesome Lock here in the Windows Phone Store.

Update: The version 4.0 update for the free version of Awesome Lock is now live.

The app is pretty good... But seriously... The trial version is so annoying!!! Makes me not want to get it at all... Shows the trial screen after changes each setting... Not a pleasant experience at all...

Awesome lock trial version does give you the full version for limited time... Nothing wrong with having the trial pop ups... Only stating how the trial pop up can turn people way instead of making the purchase...

Maybe have it pop up once or twice like any other app... U probably never tried the trial version... While setting up the app... The trial popped up about 10+ times!!! That's insane...

Just moved to lockmix too. I have bought Awesome Lock, Lockmix (fully unlocked), Lockscreen calendar and Lock screen agenda. With Lockmix you can fit most stuff on your lockscreen.
