We’ve mentioned Hello Friends a few times in the past as one of the coolest apps for Windows Phone 8 users, but today we can talk about WP7 users too. Hello Friends is a live app that can change the lockscreen in WP8, so naturally it has not been available for WP7 since that functionality is not possible. The good folks over at Hello Friends have found a way to mimic that functionality for WP7.
Windows Phone 7,5 users will be able to create static collages of contact photos, save the collage to their phone, and then set it as the lockscreen wallpaper manually. This is a very clever way to let users on WP7 still enjoy the app. The full changelog of improvements in Hello Friends 3.0 is listed below.
- 2 new templates

- Template selection window with miniatures
