Live lock screen wallpapers arrive with Windows Phone 8, including real time Facebook updates

Now, with Windows Phone 8, third party apps will be able to push information right on your lock screen before you even flick away to get into the home screen. This will be customizable to your preferences, whether you want the Facebook app to push all the new statuses, messages and so on, or the Sports app to display the live score of a game, you catch the drift.
A pretty svelte ides, which should have been developed long time ago, as there have been hints and efforts from 3rd party app developers to do precisely that, and those options have proved very popular.

Apple - yeah. Google? Hell no. Android already has something like that - it's called Widgetlocker - and it allows you to put any widget you want on your lock screen.

Typical response from a defensive delusional windows phone fanboy. Your OS has NEVER mattered and still only commands less that 10 % of market share world wide, you can only dream of the numbers that IOS and Android garner. Android not important? That is highly doubtful, the average Joe will still flock to what they are familiar with, what Windows is, is a complete heap of mess and confusion of it's home screen, not the most intuitive OS in the world.

lol what a loser. Typical fandroid response. "My OS is best and most complex and everyone loves it" I'm not a windows fan boy ive never even owned a windows phone. I'm just interested in it, and android bores me. Sorry that that is such a problem to you.
