Microsoft's Next Lock Screen for Android updated with essential security features

Next lock screen updated with new features
Microsoft is definitely no stranger to developing Android apps. The latest one it launched was Picturesque, a lock screen replacement that brings the power of Bing straight to your lock screen. That's actually Redmond's second app of the type that makes it to the Play Store, as Microsoft's Next Lock Screen has been around for some time now.

Hopefully, Microsoft has not forgotten about the latter, as it just received a small feature-packed update just recently. It now allows you to set a PIN or a lock pattern and prevent unwanted access to your device, which is a pretty essential security feature. Next Lock Screen will no longer unlock your device if you accidentally press the hardware home button (if any) at the front, too. The app now also supports a total of three languages - English, Spanish, and Chinese (Mandarin). 

Of course, the usual bug fixes and performance improvements are also part of the changelog.
