  1. Was this app abandoned? I loved it on WP 8 but there is no one similar for WP 10

  2. culo belo
    fica bela
    dio cani
    dio cano

  3. this app is removed from the store.. why microsoft is behaving like this ..

  4. It is not available for windows 10

  5. Tried this app and it only has static images that don't even work. I'm guessing it doesn't like Windows 10

  6. so when is the full version will available?.. waited for ages still no update.

  7. does it have phone lock? pattern etc. so no one should use your phone except you?

  8. what is the name of this app

  9. I don't like the slow bouncing effect when you don't fully slide up, but otherwise it's nice, and it doesn't lag after the first time you do it.

  10. they need more features on this app, live weather, integrated calender and video wallpaper then its be cool lockscreen, i hope win10 provide more on customization, features and more security features for lockscreens and app interaction

  11. @JewelJames lol so you're upset that windows phone is actually maturing and allowing user customizations such as backgrounds, live lock screens oh and also finally a unified notification center. How narrow minded are you? You really prefer the bland solid colors over transparent tiles? You do understand that backgrounds are only an option to the user to make their windows phone more theirs. I mean hell, they made backgrounds and folders in a pretty unique way. Windows phone is maturing into a unique and awesome operating system. If you don't like the options your given then don't use them. Please stop paying ignorant shit like this. Forever. Please. You're doing everyone including yourself a favor.

  12. Lol. The first app you showed was just what I was looking for. Thanks you.

  13. Its pretty awesome 🙂 but what's the name of this App !!? 🙂

  14. Buggiest app, don't download it !

  15. Liked the 1st a lot 🙂
    Gonna get myself the 930 as first Windows Phone – hopefully without the display bugs :/

  16. It needs performance improvement, especially the "delay" after we slide up the lock screen and the home screen froze for about half a second, it's been a while and we still dont get any updates. And why does it have to be a separate app ?

  17. Does it work for lumia 520?Cuz i hve th app but it's nt working

  18. Its underwhelming. I think I'll stick to letting weather flow pro randomized the image and have the weather widget.

  19. Pathetic feature. I was wondering how Microsoft could be so senseless. They had a design language. They need to stick to it. Instead of doing that they're just introducing totally worthless so called customization options. Windows phone had a unique identity. Now there ruining it with start screen backgrounds and shitty lock screen. Windows was based on solid colors. Which stupid idiot introduced tile transparency. Its plain bullshit.

  21. That's pretty dope! I'm going to enjoy this on my Lumia 930

  22. It still beta anyway…
    Keep improving

  23. If nobody noticed, the lag occurs because this application actually takes a screenshot of your the Start Menu, then render's that screenshot under the animated lock screen :). So to eliminate the lag they need to find a way to overcome the need for a static image under the lock screen.

  24. zany you have to just uninstall it…

  25. Rudy rocks…
    But their are some glitches with this app…
    The text iss too solid it takes away the elegance of the lock screen like the default one…
    Plus the text is huge too soo their is less space for animation(can make it i lil bit smaller and take it to the center)…
    You can see animated lock screen app for making it better as it has the right display over the lock screen…
    the pics that are set as lock screen turns brownish while operating it…
    the animation scale for diagonal is very high(text is off the screen halfway up)…
    and last but not the least it is very lame to take a screenshot beforehand and displaying it while opening the lock screen…
    this is not how Microsoft would rule the market…(which I truly want)..
    and i don't know why the store is not displaying my review…
    soo hoping for an update soon…
    And don't forget to keep rocking…

  26. and this is why all the fuss is about? another animation the letters of your lockscreen, but still the same slide up with just a few icons? …really? …..windows phone users get excited for anything, thats how you know a platform is still missing SOOOOO much 

  27. Does it support gif image

  28. I hoped that I can customize my lock screen a little bit more when this app was announced. You can just select one of six themes and thats it. I hoped for placing whrere the time is, select color, transparency, size and font and maybe out of a few animations. 

  29. It does not lag on my Samsung Ativ S Neo. Try downloading the app to the phone and not the SD card!

  30. @bluefisch200 Rudy is one of the best WP devs ever. Do all his other apps lag? No.

  31. The binary time lockscreen is the one that caught my attention. I really like the look of it.

  32. very bad, laggy and isles till now, needs to buffet after opening the lock to gives you the natural quality of your phone UI, nothing special till now

  33. Kids corner doesn't work when using this 😞

  34. Wish you didn't have to remove miss corner to use this

  35. how to update window phone 8.1 ?? 🙁

  36. can u plz tell me the name of the first screenshot example of this app from the windowsphone store.. i really like that picture

  37. @devon taylor Uh I think he is using the 925 dude

  38. @shane virun I know right!

  39. Good but not that great! It took lot of time and expectation not meet!

  40. This app is Ass. Love the app I use now. I pin tons of info on my lockscreen

  41. @ZanyDivine737 Uninstall the app.
