UPDATED for WINDOWS PHONE 8 with Automatic Lock Screen support!

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!

More features coming every month!

    I haven't used it yet but sure I will have to then I would love to write a review.

    Mediocre at best, while the app does what it should with no functionality problems, it would be extremely convenient to user if the creators integrated GPS location services, not to mention being able to remotely activate the message so you wouldn't have to wear the stamp on your phone with a piece of personal information all the time, thank you
