Get a bit more out of your BlackBerry’s lock screen


Ever looked at your BlackBerry’s lock screen with that, by default, Analog clock and wonder why RIM hasn’t added some additional themes or functionality into it? For example, it would be nice to see a count of unread emails or tweets. Yes, I know that some of the flip based BlackBerry Smartphones offer this but the bulk of BB users have a non-flip device. While Toysoft’s latest app, the animClock doesn’t offer an unread count of your messages, it does show the temperature and battery level on the lock screen which is a good start.

You can add skins to it as well allowing you to change the clock and there are some nifty ones available for download. The only issue I have is that animClock does not spring up as the default app when you connect your charger. Instead, they make you pay an additional $3 for their MegaAlarms application to get that functionality.

Available for $1 here.
