Locksider

Locksider and Locksider+ for Windows Phone have both been updated. We've been informed by the developer, Liquid Daffodil that both releases fix an issue relating to consistent lock screen updates, or rather lack of. The team relied too heavily on consistent patterns in the background agents, which often caused scheduled updates to be skipped. What has been put in place is a more reliable update pattern.

One of the neat features on Windows Phone 8 is the flexibility with lockscreens. We've seen several apps take advantage of adding widgets to the lockscreen and rotate the wallpaper images.

This week's roundup focuses in on a selection of Windows Phone 8 apps that helps keep your lockscreen wallpaper fresh. All are either free or have a trial version to let you try things out first. The selection continues to grow and if we've missed your favorite lockscreen app, feel free to chime in below in the comments.

We’ve already covered the much loved app Locksider form Liquid Daffodil, one of the first apps to give your Lock screen some fresh art on an hourly basis (or once a day, if you’re more tame). The app went free for a few days before going to $0.99 and received some great feedback, including a request for weather.

Well, look no more as Locksider+ is now here, which gives you all the same pre-selected images to your phone with the additional option of a weather overlay. Sure, it’s not as robust as Weather Flow, but being able to peek at the current temp as well as the day’s high and low temperature is pretty awesome. It’s also laid out well, not hindering your view of your data and being easily visible.

Windows Phone developers Liquid Daffodil are back at making Windows Phone fans excited with their legion of apps including Cowlick! glƏƏk!, Cumulotweetus and Outsider. The latest one is called Locksider and we think Windows Phone 8 users are going to be excited.

Locksider is an app many people have been looking for: an automatic Lock screen wallpaper changer, offering high quality images updated on a regular basis. The app features numerous categories that you can choose from to suit your taste and the user has control on how often it should update your lock screen from once an hour to once a day. Don’t want it to update at all but instead do it manually? You can do that as well by browsing through categories and force updating the lock screen image of your choosing.
