Great app

I went through a few lock screen apps before I found Awesome Lock, it does everything I need and more




Platform: Mobile

Used to love it, now not so much

Loved this app and even paid for it on WP8. Now that everything has moved to WP10 this app barely functions. Love the widgets that can be added to my lock screen but what good are they when they don't refresh for days? Same can be said about it losing its ability to remain my lock screen. Too many times I turn my phone on and it's back to the plain default Win 10 lock screen, sometimes this happens multiple times a day. Frankly I get tired of resetting it so often. I've written the developer with no reply. Too bad, this app was a real gem and now its just barely above worthless to me. Can't quite bring myself to uninstall it but that's probably coming.

Best lock screen out there

Haven't seen a better lock screen




Platform: Mobile

I really like this application and I continue to use it but there are a few bugs that I wish could be eliminated. For some unknown reason it seems to lose all of my settings randomly which is very annoying and I noticed that when the spacing between what is selected to appear on the lock screen is set to maximum everything doesn't align on the left side with the clock if you have it set to align. In fact that setting seems to function the opposite of what is selected. Otherwise, I feel this is a very nice and valuable application.

Great app love it

Love this app, great features only problem I have is from time to time the app seems to crash or turn off. I then have to turn it back on but luckily my settings I have are always been saved. Have to open the app click allow and the check on the bottom. Not that much of a big deal but can get annoying.

Windows 10 mobile

As others stated it works great on 8.1 but constantly crashes and does not update on 10.

Still, the best.

I haven't been able to find a better lock screen application that includes the calendar events. The only gripe I still have is that the information sometimes does not get updated automatically and I have to open the app to refresh it.

Awesome indeed! Best lock app I've found.

Really great features and style. Win10 Mobile often resets to its own lock image but I keep switching back to Awesome Lock. It's worth it.




Platform: Mobile

very useful

This app is the best lock screen app I have used.




Platform: Mobile

Best lock screen out there!

Easiest and most informative. Sucks having to keep reloading the lock screen, but that is the os, not the app.
