AwesomeLock is a Windows Phone 8 lockscreen app that allows you to customize your lockscreen wallpaper with weather information, stock activities and news feeds.  You can also minimize your next calendar appointment to run across the bottom of the screen in ticker tape fashion.

The app was recently updated to version 2.3 which addresses a few minor bugs and improves support for Windows Phones with 512MB of RAM memory. Additionally, AwesomeLock now has six different sets of weather icons to choose from, support for XGA, 720P and HD devices, plus a gallery feature for your background images.


AwesomeLock will now let you choose up to twelve images from your Pictures Hub and the app will randomly choose one image as your lockscreen wallpaper with each data update.  The gallery feature is a nice touch for those who find it hard to choose just one of their images for the background wallpaper.

If you find yourself in need of adding more information to your Windows Phone 8 lockscreen, AwesomeLock is worth a try. There is a trial version available for AwesomeLock with the full version running $1.29. You can pick up AwesomeLock here in the Windows Phone Store.
