Instagram for Windows Phone now exclusively allows you to use your feed as a lock screen wallpaper
The official Instagram app landed on the Windows Phone platform several months ago, back in November 2013. This was relatively late, but the developers of the app somehow make it up to Windows Phone users by rewarding them with an exclusive feature or two. The latest update to the app - version 0.4.1 - allows users to use their feeds as a wallpaper for their lock screens.

Once you update the app you can head on to the newly-implemented Lock Screen page in the Settings menu and choose which feed you'd like to use. You can either opt to use the photos you've published as a lock screen background or the ones, uploaded by the people you have followed.

It is currently unknown if this rather interesting feature will remain Windows Phone-exclusive or the other versions of the app will eventually get it as well. We're rooting for the second option.

is it necessary for the phone to be connected to internet all the time when using insta as the lockscreen provider?
