Preview: Lock Screen Widgets for Windows Phone [Homebrew]

We previously took a look at Windows Phone Hacker's Lock Screen Widgets concept, where enough interest from the homebrew community would spark development to turn it into reality. It would appear as though enough interest was received as in the above video, we can see a working preview of said concept in an app form.

Work is still ongoing to apply UI enhancements and tidying up. Adding, re-arranging and removing widgets is fairly straightforward and selecting the Bing wallpaper is also possible. Suggestions are welcome for new widgets or on the app itself. We look set to see a beta version released next week (depending on continued progress), so stay tuned.

Preview: Lock Screen Widgets for Windows Phone [Homebrew]


This looks great, did anyone else notice the Haret7 application? Could a linux port be coming? Not that I would use it anymore but would be cool if it could be run.

very very very cool.
i'm usually unimpressed with the apps for unlocked windows phones but this one is pretty darn neat looking. and useful!

so this will work for sure with just dev/chevron unlocked devices?! (I hate how many cool gomebrew apps need interop unlock)

Do I just need to use my .edu address? Or do I need some sort of code from "my instructor"? I'm not clear on that from looking at the website. If I only need my .edu email, then this will be great to unlock my Radar and get cool stuff like this.

it makes the lock screen cluttered! and against the idea of live tiles on the start menu.
if you want, why dont just you guys use Android.

How can I get this on my Lumia 710??
I have purchased it in India, so basically not bound by any contracts...
