The Same Story As Everyone Else
This is a very slick app. The graphics are superb and the presentation of the lock screen is superb. The big issue with this app is that sometimes it will lock up the entire computer and you can’t type a password in. Your only course of action is to restart the computer and then you are automatically shuttled onto the desktop anyway so who cares about a password lock, right? Sometimes when coming back from Sleep mode you will be able to see the desktop and everything on it for a few seconds before the lock screen appears so I hope you don’t leave any sensitive information up when you lock the screen.
There’s potential in this app, but not until they fix these bugs that render it useless.
Two problems I have with this otherwise nice app. For the password lock, the password should be the same as the user account password. It's confusing to have a special password for the lock screen and one for your user account, forcing you to keep them in sync. The other is that when unlocking with the keyboard, it should just let you type your password, not hit a bunch of keys before you are presented with the password prompt.
Best "Lock Screen" app in the store.
Animations are far superior to any other similar apps in the store, and the themes are gorgeous. Everything works quicky and easily on my MBA. The only issue i have with this app is the fact that it always displays incorrect weather temperatures regardless of the two different websites it has there for you to use. A qucik update should fix this. Overall, great app that I will be using alot!
