Spruce Up Your Old Mobile With A New Lock Screen 'Look'

Other than giving a complete makeover to your android phone, lock screen apps are an important navigation screen which can help you jump straight to the features you use the most. Slide to unlock methods and using the codes are fine, but there are some more apps in play store that allow you to do more.

Check out some best Android lock screen apps which are free of cost.


AcDisplay is a good android lock screen app with a dark background showing up notifications in the lock screen. The app has an active mode that tries to predict when you’re picking up your phone, a blacklist which blocks the useless notifications that come on the lock screen, dynamic background settings, low-priority notification settings, and much more features.

CM Locker

You can choose the pattern or pin to unlock the phone and the intruder alert feature will take the photo of the person who unsuccessfully attempts to unlock your phone.

SlideLock Locker

Because the home screen widgets are now washed off, this app may not work on the latest android app.
