Ever wanted to do something about the drab Android lock screen but was frustrated that most of the apps which do this on the Play Store were either cost a lot of money or were riddled with adware? Guess what, you are in luck.
LockScreenClub doesn’t cost a penny to download and the features of the app aren’t locked down by ‘pay to use’ policy of certain applications. You can get the app from the Google Play Store.
You are presented with a prompt to make an account the first time you launch the app. You can either login from your Facebook account or signup using your email address.
Although the UI is modern and simplistic, it does the job without any hiccups. This is a huge positive for folks who don’t want to waste their time meddling around with their phones for hours to get the lock-screen they desire.
When you open the app, you are presented with a wide myriad of lock-screens to choose from. They are sorted by ‘hearts’ by default. A ‘heart’ is the Facebook equivalent of a like. All users can ‘heart’ the theme they like. A click on one of these lovely themes and BAM! You are done. That is really to it, really. Setting the app up is a breeze.
After selecting the theme you desire, the next time you press the power button, you’ll be presented with it’s custom lock screen. You can either swipe up to unlock your phone or swipe down to get all the utilities like texts, browser, dialer etc.
The nifty page also combines all the desired info like charge, messages, time, WiFi info for you so that you can view it at a glance.
Although there are ads do pop up once in a while on your lock-screen, we found that they are fairly unobtrusive and warranted, given the developer has spent a lot of resources and effort making this app. You can still purchase the ad-free “premium” version for just 0.99$(around 60 Rs.) and for what the app can do, that is a steal.
The thing which I liked about the app is that it can replace the stock Android lock-screen without the need for root privileges. That for our readers is a big deal since most of the Android users do not have root on their device.
I would whole heartedly recommend LockScreenClub to all of our readers. Albeit being simple and free, this app packs a punch when it comes to usability and utility. It is fair to say that I will be using this app for a while.
