Expert's Review

"What's the lockscreen buzz?"

Reviewed by / Sep 02, 2014

Get the news you love to read right on your lockscreen

Swipe: Lock Screen News is just what it sounds like - subscribe to news feeds that you enjoy, and watch their current stories pop up right on your lockscreen.

Supposedly, the average smartphone user (that's YOU, buddy!) turns on their device 110 times each and every day. Imagine if each of those times offered information to keep you up-to-the-minute with tech news, celeb gossip, or just the best of internet weirdness. Personalize Swipe to display just the news you're interested in, and then enjoy checking it out every time you see your lockscreen.

Controls are simple - a swipe right unlocks your screen like normal, swiping left scrolls through more current stories, and down reveals details about the story on the screen. The one complaint I have is that the controls seem just a little sticky - I couldn't get my stories to scroll quite as smoothly as I wanted. It's a neat idea, though, and definitely useful for keeping up with what's happening on your favorite news sites.

    It's just too buggy. Sometimes there's news on the screen, sometimes there's not. Sometimes the phone unlocks, sometimes it doesn't.

    Works fast in my phone, and I can keep updated all the time because it works even when I don't have Internet, also I can save news to read later with the pocket app.

    Doesn't work with my existing feedly account, nor with a new one I created just to try out this app. The only thing that seems to work in this application is the loading bar animation.

    It works surprisingly well, but it just won't save the feedly feeds that I want. Maybe it requires a save button :)
