#LockScreen #App – 5 Must-Try Lock Screen Replacement Apps for Your Android : When it comes to customization, you just can’t beat Android. Not only can you replace your home screen, switch your default apps, and apply icon packs, but you can even replace your entire lock screen by installing a simple app.
Considering that the lock screen is the first interface you encounter when you pick up your phone, that last one might even be the biggest change you can make without root access.
But there are tons of gimmicky lock screen replacement apps on the Google Play Store, and some even contain malware, so it can be hard to sort through all the riffraff.
To make things easier on you, we’ve installed and tested dozens of lock screens, then condensed the list to the five best options available. So if you’ve been in the market for a new lock screen, read on below for the most innovative and useful apps available (in no particular order).
Cover: Quick Access to Apps
If you’re one who likes to get straight to the point, you’ll probably love Cover. This lock screen replacement adds a row of apps to the side of your screen, so when you wake your phone, all you have to do is swipe inward from an icon to jump straight into that app.
This feature is quite handy for taking quick glances at your apps without fully unlocking your device, and the fact that the app shortcuts change based on your location is a major plus for productivity.
In addition to all of that, you can even use these shortcuts while your device is unlocked, by simply swiping down from the top-right corner of your screen at any time.
