Awesome Lock is popular Windows Phone 8 lockscreen app that allows you to customize your Windows Phone lockscreen by adding news, weather, currency exchange rates, Facebook notifications and more to your lockscreen.
The app was recently updated to version 220.127.116.11 which adds a handful of performance improvements and bug fixes but most notably adds support for pinning news and scores about the 2014 FIFA World Cup to your lockscreen.
To add the World Cup updates to your lockscreen you will need to go to Awesome Lock's Home Page and scroll to the bottom of the add-on choices until you see the "add content" button bar. Tap the button bar and scroll down until you see "FIFA World Cup Brazil", tap that listing and go back to the Home Page and the World Cup option will now be available to add to your Awesome Lock lockscreen.
Awesome Lock was already a feature rich Windows Phone 8 app and adding World Cup scores only adds to the app's appeal. There are two versions of Awesome Lock available. The free version does have some functionality limitations with what or how much you can place on your lockscreen. The pay version does have a trial and a $1.49 price tag. Both versions include the World Cup feature.
