Add widgets to your Windows 8 lockscreen with TuneUp IncrediLock

The Windows 8 lockscreen is one of the simplest, yet most customizable lockscreens for any device. Being able to alter which notifications you see for apps below the date and time is a great way to personalize your device, but what if you want to put more information on screen? That’s where TuneUp IncrediLock comes in. The app features hundreds of different wallpapers to allow you to customize the look of your lockscreen, but it also includes a widget function so that you can add small notes to your lockscreen.

The functionality of the app will probably get more robust over time, but this is a great way to get more out of your Windows 8 lockscreen. You can download the app from the Windows Store here.

    It’s weird how all lockscreens are starting to move away from the idea of a lockscreen. It’s like they want you to have all functionality of the phone within the lockscreen, but sometimes it reaches the point where the phone is no longer “locked”.

    Take the Nexus 4 and Android 4.2 as an example, the lockscreen is pretty much like the homescreens. You can add all kinds of widgets and things to it. The way I see it, I might as well deactivate the lockscreen and go straight to the UI….

  • That’s actually a really good point, Edgar. I usually just keep the time and weather at a glance on my Android tablet, but seems more people add so much more.

    Ugh, be warned that if you install be prepared to say good bye to the preloaded lock screen photos..
