The most exciting and interesting part of Build 2014 was custom animated lockscreen apps for Windows Phone 8.1 devices. Joe Belfiore said we can expect the first beta of lock screen apps to show up on our handsets in 1-2 weeks.
Developer David Lorenzin has jumped the queue slightly by giving us a preview on video of the apps he will be publishing to the Windows Phone Store.
According to the video his lock screen app will feature 3 styles of unlocking – Classic, which features diagonal sliding lines, Clock Plus, which features text revolving around a circular hub, and Stripe, which features sliding horizontal sections. Check the video after a break.
Watch that YouTube video above to preview those new Lock screen APIs in action. Those are animated Lock screens that will apparently be published sometime soon this week and you'll be able to nab.
Joe Belfiore also informed via Twitter last week that the Lock screen app will be in English and require 1GB of RAM at launch.
Watch the video and let us know if you like Classic, Clock Plus or Stripe.
