Next Lock Screen

One of the better lock screens for Android, Next Lock Screen, is the subject of a pretty big update from its creators at Microsoft. The biggest new feature is the ability to bypass the lock screen using your phone's fingerprint sensor, if your phone is so equipped.

Here's what's new and improved in the Next Lock Screen's latest update:

  • Fingerprint Unlock (for devices with fingerprint scanner). While Next is on screen, use your fingerprint scanner to bypass the Next screen lock.
  • Smart Contacts. Next learns and displays contacts whom you've called or texted.
  • Smart Lock. Set rules for whether a passcode is needed when you're at Home or Work.
  • Location-based wallpapers are back. Different wallpapers for Auto/Home/Work.
  • Bug fixes.

You can download Next Lock Screen right now at the Google Play Store.
