Microsoft's Live Lock Screen app now available for Windows Phone 8.1
It was teased at Build 2014 and is now finally available. Windows Phone 8.1 users can now download the Live Lock Screen BETA app to spruce up their Lock screens.
From the app's description:
You'll need Windows Phone 8.1 to use this. If that's you, go ahead and check it out. Let us know in the comments below what you think of the Live Lock Screen app. And guess what? It does work with 512MB devices, which is a relief since Microsoft previously said it would require 1GB of RAM or more at launch. Enjoy!
Thanks for the tips everyone!

Please a the current temp and this would be golden!
Now OEMs need one ;) :)
Edit: Restarted phone and works nicely
⚠ Bug alert (on 620): try opening the action center right after unlocking, it should show the unlocking animation a second time but with whatever you have displayed on your screen.
Going to try it...
Btw dev said he'll update the same app when the API is released.
Changes default notifications icons to a generic star which makes them useless
But app is really good)
Hope they come soon.
Notification of new things on facebook and 6TAG lockscreen, appears to me the epitomy of a star, getting a star symbols without my knowing it corresponds notification application .. Transactions are a bit slow, at least for what I was used
State Meteorological time, personal messages, other types of customization, nothing exists. Just now I discovered apps like weather hd. I expected more from them. I can not believe two or three indies desenvolveres have more customization in apps to lockscreen that this official app from Microsoft disappointed
Ooh right I forgot its still in beta and that's a good thing since we can see a lot of improvement in coming days, still it would be great if they add weather and make that rotating analog clock with numbers in it.
I was expecting to see something more dynamic - something that allowed us to scroll through the currently playing music etc...
Big let down. At least the normal lock screen works perfectly and looks good!
Badly made with a huge screenshot of the frozen screen when unlocking.
This app looks like an amateur ...
I changed it to a normal lock screen immediately. (on Lumia 1520)
I thought it might be battery, but my battery was at 68.
Won't be using it without weather support.
I really like it.
I think that is why Microsoft said it require 1gb ram.
