    Great app, updates nicely and is up to date. Very useful info but doesn't clutter up the lock screen

    Update to support wp8.1. Battery status doesn't update. Calendar event(minimized) shows 4 days in advance instead of today/tomorrow.

    Works as described

    With all the other great lock screen apps I am still using this one. It would be awesome if there were some easy to get to the full news articles. A little buggy, occasionally it has to be re setup and the Bing daily image gets stuck but nothing that can't be solved if you know your way around a setup menu.

    With all the new features in the latest version, this is a really good app now. For some reason though my FB notifications aren't updating at all after the very first time I run the app. Realm annoying. Also I wish there was some way of making the news items into links. Probably a restriction of the OS.
