We've previously looked at the Locked Screen Widgets concept over at Windows Phone Hacker throughout it's development. We're now excited to report that LockWidgets 2 has been released and is now available to all (should you own an eligible Windows Phone of course).
What's all the fuss about? LockWidgets 2 is a complete rewrite of the original LockWidgets app, which enabled users to add widgets to their lock screen. The successor adds more functionality to the list with more opportunities present in the framework. Some highlighted features:
- SMS widget
- Weather widget
- Battery widget
- Runs in the background
- Should run side-by-side with other homebrew apps, such as Folders, Battery Status, etc.
Features that are still in development, but are well on their way include an RSS widget, improved forecast info, more notification data, and a RAM widget. Check out the following video for more information and a quick run through.
The only downside to this awesome functionality, as mentioned above, is the requirement of a fully unlocked Windows Phone (interop unlocked). Should you be in possession of one, then you're good to go. Of course, Windows Phone Central cannot take any responsibility if you damage your Windows Phone.
Head on over to Windows Phone Hacker to download and try out LockWidgets 2.
