    Get the news you love to read right on your lockscreen

    • Personalize with your favorite sources
    • Automatically refreshes
    • Brings information to a space you already use
    • Controls not quite smooth

    "What's the lockscreen buzz?"

    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.

    Loved the way it works, it doesn't create conflicts with the AOSP lockscreen even with a password. I did notice that when using the magazine style , I'll put my finger on the fingerprint sensor with the screen off and the device will unlock but it won't skip corgi. If I turn on the screen and then unlock with my fingerprint it'll just skip corgi as I believe it should. That is really the only thing bugging me.

    This app was exactly what I was looking for. Only one issue, everytime i set a custom wallpaper the lockscreen goes transparent

    If you don't turn on your phone for at least 10-15 minutes, the app does not ask for passcode. Please

    The idea of having a lockscreen full of news feeds is quite good but what if someone wants to see Instagram, Facebook or Twitter feeds on the lockscreen. Just do it. I really miss Htc Blink feed it worked really well. Would really appreciate it if you integrate such features into the your app.
