Here's a sneak peek at Lock screen apps on Windows Phone 8.1

Lock screen apps have been long awaited since their unveiling alongside Windows Phone 8.1 at Build 2014. Last week, Microsoft's Joe Belfiore took to Twitter to tease that we'd be seeing those Lock screen apps in the near future - potentially as soon as this week. Here's a sneak peek at some of those apps you'll be using soon.

Watch that YouTube video above to preview those new Lock screen APIs in action. Those are animated Lock screens that will apparently be published sometime soon this week and you'll be able to nab.

Joe Belfiore also informed via Twitter last week that the Lock screen app will be in English and require 1GB of RAM at launch.

Watch the video and let us know if you like Classic, Clock Plus or Stripe. Personally we're digging Clock Plus.

Thanks for the tip David!
