Cover Lock Screen promises to 'smart-up' your Android lock screen
What Cover Lock Screen does is basically give you a list of relevant apps that you can access straight from your lock screen, without needing to unlock the phone first. When we say that it learns from your behavior, we mean that the Cover Lock Screen app would check which apps you use most at say home, and would show you those exact apps.

Sounds interesting... but if you don't have to unlock to use the displayed apps, whats the point of having a lock screen?

you have to press the app, then slide, kind of like the camera widget on the lock screen of iPhones or Samsung devices. I've been using this app for a little while now, and its actually pretty nice. When I'm driving, it knows I'm more likely to open Pandora or my podcast app. When at work, it knows I'll use Facebook.. lol.

It is stolen from Ubuntu anyway. Check out their homepage:http://www.ubuntu.com/phone/fe

Anyone can pick up your phone and accesses personal info that is in the most frequently used apps!

Sorry, it's just not available out of the US, Canada, and Europe right now. So I guess, I might have to wait.

It works with the security lock on your phone as well so just set a lock tyme and your good. Its in beta so this app will get better due to feed back and updates.

How does it work with the security lock on my phone? If I have to pass the security lock, why not just unlock my phone and arrage my centre home screen to have my most commonly used apps?

question is do its functions justify the added stress on the RAM and additional battery drain? would that be like a live wallpaper in terms of memory and battery consumption.

Live wallpapers consume about 1% of battery. So I'm not sure what you mean by your comment.
I didn't notice any real battery differences when running it.

It barely uses any battery and it doesn't even show up under battery usage. The developers had battery usage in mind when developing the app.

I love Cover, I read about it on GSMArena and it's fantastic. Only down side is I live so close to where I work it sometimes doesn't recognize I've left work.

We need more high quality lock screen replacements.
