Use the force to check the time with the latest update from Nokia

nokia force

Nokia is just chock full of ideas when it comes to ways to unlock your phone. First they added the double-tap to wake feature on the Lumia 925, now they are adding an even fancier way. Today Nokia has improved their “glance screen” feature in Windows Phone 8. There is a new “Peek” setting in the Display+Touch menu. When selected, the force is with you.

Simply hover your hand above the proximity sensor and the time and vibrate/silent mode will show up. It’s a quick and easy way to check the time without actually unlocking device. Plus it’s just plain cool to show off to your friends. So far this feature is only available on the Lumia 925. How cool is this?

    Not cool until they release it for the 920!

    This is pretty nice. Especially for those who don’t use a watch. Unlocking the device to check the time can get annoying.
