Here's a demo of lockscreen apps on Windows Phone 8.1

Posted: , by Chris P.

Here's a demo of lockscreen apps on Windows Phone 8.1
We've known that lockscreen apps are coming to Windows Phone with the latest 8.1 Cyan update for a while now, but it's fair to say that we never actually got to see enough of them. Thankfully, Windows Phone division chief, Joe Belfiore, took to Twitter last week, announcing that after the feature is a week away from release. 

Said to require a device with at least 1GB of RAM at launch (yes, that excludes a few phones), the feature has been showcased in a YouTube clip uploaded yesterday. Demo'd are three different unlock animation styles: "Classic", "Clock Plus", and "Stripe". We tend to like the first and last, as Clock Plus seems overly busy, but we're sure not all will necessarily agree.

Windows Phone fans, are you excited about this new feature?

But many 520, 630/635, etc. owners with 512 RAM will be left out with this feature. They need to bring it for all those huge low / mid range device owners with 512 MB RAM. I thought WP OS is optimized and it can run almost anything with 512 MB RAM but this is sad. Not fair. Disappointed.

this was demoed on a 630 which shows releasing it on 512mb will have lag just like you can see in the video.

When more advance feature are added, more ram will be needed. This is a computing requirement much like the law of physic.

Ahh, yes.

(BTW even though you say you are self sufficient and Says NO to Google, you seem to use a lot of their products, for example, YouTube)
