SmartShift Lockscreen: Auto lockscreen personalization according to time or circumstance

June 21, 2012

The Android home screen not only displays application shortcuts and widgets but also represents the user’s tastes and preferences. In the past few years, manufacturers have also tried to impose their own vision of what a home screen should look and feel like. Some users love them, others hate them, and a select number of users just don’t have anything to say about it.

As a user, you may already have decided to inject your personal touch into your Android experience by downloading famous home screen launchers such as GO Launcher Pro, Launcher Pro, or ADX Launcher. The method is easy, but for some Android junkies, these homescreens aren’t quite personal enough.

If you’re really into customization and you believe that personalization is an art, there is one Android application for you. In our opinion, the app is fantastic and definitely a must-try for everyone.

SmartShift Lockscreen is straightforward and is dedicated to changing the appearance of your Android lockscreen, depending on the factors affecting it, like the current location and what time it is.

SmartShift Lockscreen is smart enough to understand what you are doing, whether you’re at home or at work. For example, if you’re at home relaxing, SmartShift Lockscreen might show you your video collection and display Facebook and Twitter updates. Plug in your headphones and it’ll automatically show your music widget.

If you leave the house, the app will switch off your Wi-Fi connection. About to go for a drive? The app will bring you traffic updates, as well as weather information. Sounds pretty futuristic, if you ask me.

The app is not limited to just changing your Android device’s lockscreen but can also perform a variety of things. You can set up profiles and can change the app’s settings, depending on your location and other factor. The app certainly lives up to its name as a smart application.

SmartShift Lockscreen also lets you fully customize your own lock screen by adding your personal choice of widgets, as well as other social networking services like Facebook and Twitter. Not only that, it also allows you to tweak colors to match your current wallpaper and so much more.

The app also comes with built-in themes for making customization much easier. There is also the option of downloading more themes if you’re still not satisfied with how your homescreen look.

SmartShift Lockscreen revolutionizes the way we interact with our phones’ lockscreen. Instead of traditionally using it purely for locking and unlocking our home screen, SmartShift Lockscreen makes it smart enough to perform application roles.

If you’re tired of your plain lockscreen that is limited to just locking your phone, then why not add a little bit of drama with SmartShift Lockscreen? You can download SmartShift Locksccreen from the Google Play Store for a relatively small price.
