Reviews From google play store

Nice app, small lightweight and slow to start when you switch on your phone. And why have a lockscreen pattern when theres no option to hide it? Would hae given it 5star but my music player isnt supported so have to unlock it everytime just to change a track. Intergrate jet audio please please and I'd be happy to recommend to others

I only have one issue with it, that when I open my camera, my camera app mulfinctions it looses all it icons, all I see is myself and the shutter button and every other icon disappear. I don't know if it's my phone or the app but please check it out. I use a Huawei P9 Plus. But either than that I love it it, it's slick and elegant, it neatly organizes my notifications and opens them directly from the locker. OOOOOOHHHH PLUS I CAN BROWSE THE NET FROM THE LOCK SCREEN WHAAAAT!!! INCREDIBLE

Very nice app. Works as expected. Only one thing needs to be modified. I want to set to display who has whatsapp me, but no need to display the message, but it shows the message alongwith the contact name. And also it is not showing any control for music player, i m currently using MX Player as default music player. Kindly check it out.

Love this lockscreen! Frustrated that I take the time to set my shortcuts and the app constantly wipes it out. So I've stopped using that. Also half the time my music/podcast controls don't show up on the lockscreen so I have to fully unlock phone. I love the wallpaper of the day. Have to unlock phone to reply to messages. Fix these issues and this would be a 5 star review.

It's a good looking lockscreen, but I have some issues, every time I turn of an alarm the phone unlocks for a few seconds, also when I'm listening a voicenote in WhatsApp it locks! And with the Samsung stock lockscreen this doesn't happen, the screen should just turn black. And whenever I boot the phone I have to unlocked multiple times because it keeps locking it self up.

Neat! It works, it makes sense, it's customizable and easy. It exposes some well hidden Android system controls and defeats some annoying Android behaviors. This smooths the interface, to Android's potential benefit I might add, making me happy to more securely lock my phone because I won't have to unlock it at all to see the time, weather, select music and read new messages. Wow!

I actually do like the app, but it does not function well. I can't get the shortcuts and location feature on the lock screen to stay set and no longer even try to use them. Within 48 hours, it always forgets and you have to reset shortcuts, 3 times for each location, and retrain the locations. Extremely annoying. Lastly, the feedback/reporting area will not load at all so I cannot submit this report in the right place.

3 stars only because of that stupid pull-up shortcuts tab. My phone turns on inside my pocket when silent and when I walk, that pull up tab goes up and starts turning stuff on and off, even the flashlight! That's how I know it's on so make an option to turn that useless shortcut tab off! I never use it and I'm sure thousands of others have the same issue. And take that camera shortcut off also.

Just one more thing, please add an inbuilt fingerprint support because if we register fingerprint through our system lock then system lockscreen is activated and this becomes uslesss, and typing pin everytime while having a fingerprint scanner is frustrating. That's all. Great app.

Made useless by Android. You know where this would be useful on Windows 10. Looks nice for the 1/10 of a second you can see it. where it would be nice to have quick shortcuts and your notifications right on the lockscreen is on my surface pro. it would be nice if Microsoft paid as much attention to Windows as they do to Android and iOS

By far the best lock screen for Android. It's completely ad-free and works like a dream. Honestly, the only problem I've had with it has been that integration with Mood, the SMS app, is non-existent. So, when I do receive texts, it doesn't show up on the Next Lock screen. All other messengers I have used work flawlessly with the lock screen, however.

What's the point of a lock screen if it shows you all of your information and doesn't hide anything? I want to know when I have notifications, but I don't want people to read my emails and text messages off the screen before I unlock it. Worthless.

I think I found an error.. everyday by the morning of after about 12h have passed, my lockscreen wallpaper changes automatically, even though I haven't checked "Bing daily wallpaper". I also have a custom wallpaper, which I pretty much love, so, switching to those Bing wallpapers without my permission is kind of annoying.

Lately, the screen won't light up when a notification comes in. The setting is turned on. Just a few suggestions: -Have options of opening lock screen from different directions (instead of just pulling it down). Pulling it down is just awkward. -Show the alarm on your phone, on the lock screen. -Have an option to have the day and date written out, along with being abbreviated. -Allow user to choose from other weather provider. Thanks

I'm unhappy that this app limits me to a PIN with only 4 digits, and does not support alphanumeric passwords or fingerprint authentication. More significantly, the lock screen does does not actually protect your data. I have been able to reply to Messages by pulling down the notification menu, without needing to enter a PIN to "unlock" my phone. Microsoft, this is a major security flaw. It essentially renders your lock screen unusable and unsafe. Please fix!

An Exclusive app. wth very good IU except you need to improve on auto locations. It cannot locate my area of residence yet other weather apps accurately locate it. This is Kisubi, Busiro, Wakiso, Uganda 🇺🇬

1. It doesn't respond most of the time. My lock screen hangs for 2-3 seconds but after that, it responds. Fix this. 2. Its Feedback feature is not working. It shows - 'subdomain is down or something'. 3. Wallpaper cannot be changed on both home screen and lock screen at the same time when using Microsoft launcher and Next lock screen both.

Cannot customise apps on launch pad after update. Cannot select system bar for encrypted device. Cannot select mobile data on app launch screen - I DONT NEED BLUETOOTH AND SCREEN ROTATE SHORTCUTS IN MY APP LAUNCH. Update - app does not work with Oreo update on J7 Prime.

PRO: This did what I wanted it to do which was keep my lock screen on longer while showing me my messages on the lock screen. (KINDA) - CON: It takes near 20 secs for the message to show up on the screen after you get the sound/vibrate notification. making it really not stay on longer because about the time it shows up on the screen the screen times out and turns off. I took 2 stars off because that is the main thing I wanted out of this is the lock screen notifications and it was a downer.

They should have a way to turn off the tools from the bottom. While using this my torch kept turning on, then it kept on sliding my screen brightness and turning auto rotate on and off. Oh did I mention that it kept turning my Bluetooth and wifi on and off in my pocket too. There should be a setting to turn off the slide up tray at the bottom. If not this would have been a 5 star product.
