Windows Phone 8.1’s locksreen beta app almost ready for public beta

During the BUILD 2014 keynote, Microsoft announced new locksreen APIs for Windows Phone 8.1. Windows Phone VP, Joe Belfiore tweeted that lock screen app may launch next week! His tweet reads – “Lockscreen app- sorry for being quiet. The beta (English, 1gb+) is ALMOST here, perhaps a week. We hit a few snags & added a feature.” As per this tweet it is certainly clear that locksreen beta app will first launch for Windows Phones with 1GB of RAM(English). Support for 512 MB device is on the roadmap though Belfiore commented back in June that making app fast and staying in memory, was their top priority.The good news though is the app is almost ready for those with Windows Phone 8.1 to try out.
