    I like it as my lock screen.

    (Update: 7/20) App no longer updates lockscreen, I'm guessing server issues, and the dev hasn't updated in months. Don't buy anymore!!! While the apps generally good, there's no easy way to access fav quotes, and the live tile seems to be broken. Can be a lot better

    I have set quote to change every hour however it has not changed for two days.

    Needs some updating. The developer should look at trivia buff pro. Same idea- better implementation.
