Sometimes you want to read the news, but you don’t want the hassle of unlocking your phone in a public place. Step forward Locket, the handy app that lets you select what news you are interested in and then drags it onto your lockscreen. It’s useful as it gives you information on the go, but keeps your mobile secure.
You can select which topics you are interested in, scroll through stories, read them or save them for later. This tutorial will show you how to do all of the above to help make your lockscreen a much more entertaining and useful part of your phone.
1. Set it up
After downloading Locket Lock Screen from the Google Play store, you will be greeted with the homescreen. It will prompt you to log in with Facebook or Google, which you can do with a single tap if you’re already logged in on those services.
2. Select your preferences
The Locket Lock Screen app gives you a range of options for your areas of interest. Tick all the topics that you think you would like to read about. You have to tick at least five, but can also tick as many as you like.
3. Enjoy your lockscreen
Tap the bottom button to bring up five options: the book takes you to a list of stories, the share icon lets you send them via social media, the heart saves stories, the camera and padlock load your camera and homescreen respectively.
