Lost Phone Screen stamps your contact information on the wallpaper of your choice. Why enable your GPS to chase down your lost phone? The problem is that your lock screen includes no way to contact you! 

Lost Phone Screen will let you quickly and easily create custom wallpapers for your lock screen that exactly match your phone's Metro style. 

Lost Phone Screen integrates with the Pictures Hub cleanly, letting you send photos you are viewing directly into the application. We also include a custom integrated Crop and Zoom feature!

    The app has a good idea in it but there is a big problem... Do I need to set this as my lock screen and wait when my phone is going to be lost? Can't you just make an option to change it remotely after the phone is lost?

    This is so awesome. I came across it when I had a student leave their phone on my bus. Everyone locks their phone and usually I cannot find the owner, with this it was so simple. I just had to download the app and put on my phone. Great idea!
