Beta release: Lock Widgets for Windows Phone
Posted on 03-22-12 08:59 am

Alright folks, here it is. The beta I promised, that is, of the new Lock Widgets application. I've received a lot of neat ideas from people, as well as lots of encouraging feedback. Thanks to everyone for that! This is an early beta version; there's lots of work to do on it, such as optimization and new widgets. While I work on that, I thought I would release the beta version for everyone to help confirm everything is working as expected and to help me resolve any issues early on.

Here's the important info:

  • Your device must be rooted. More specifically, the application needs root privileges. Right now, only people with custom ROMs may use this application. People with interop-unlocked devices will soon be able to use it, thanks to Heathcliff74's upcoming WP7 Root Tools 0.9 app.
  • The "debug" widget adds the last updated info to the bottom of the screen. This is useful stuff for testing.
  • The widgets update every 30 minutes. This is due to background task restrictions.

Again, this is an early beta and may have some expected issues. Hope you like it! 

As usual, do not redistribute or hotlink. Link to this page instead. Appreciate it much ;)
