Next Lock Screen for Android gets new update

Microsoft has been tinkering quite a lot with Android applications lately, even if with mixed success. One of their more interesting creations for the platform is the Next Lock Screen – a smart, location-aware lockscreen that pulls relevant information from user apps and places it right beside notifications for easy access.

Now Microsoft’s experimental brain child has gotten even smarter. The latest update adds weather information to the mix as well as a visual redesign with a lot more freedom for customization. The system status bar can now be done away with if you do not find it useful on your lockscreen and wish to use the space for something better. The home wallpaper can also be cloned on your lock screen in this new version.

The app might still be lacking in some respects, but it is definitely a nice alternative approach, different from that found in most Android launchers. So if you fancy a fresh experience that you can make your own be sure to check out Microsoft’s Next Lock Screen.
