Picturesque Lock Screen Play Store 1

Picturesque lock screen app from Microsoft Garage makes your lock screen lively by setting your lock screen wallpaper using Bing Images. Apart from making the lock screen lively it makes you productive by helping you search, find and open Apps, Contacts, Browser favorites and bookmarks right from the lock screen.
This app was today updated with several new features and improvements. This version also adds security (PIN, password and pattern), controls for playing, pausing and toggling music, and support for all types of notifications and a categorized view for users to easily find important ones. It also now optimizes data consumption, drains less memory and battery use, and cuts down shortcuts to one swipe. Also, this app is now available globally.

– Search for contacts, apps and web, all from lock screen
– Tap on search bar to get your top contacts
– Added PIN/Password/Pattern security
– Receive all app notifications on your lock screen
– New revamped responsive UX
– Control music from lock screen
