Keep caught up on the latest news with Next News Lock Screen

nextnews-logo-300If you’re like me, then you’re busy. Very busy. Down moments are either in between meetings, or often at night just before you go to bed. Yes. There are a few moments here and there, but there’s never really a chance to catch up on anything that may be happening in the world.

Often you have to make the most of those free moments of downtime between meetings, or during the morning or evening commute on a bus or train to and from the office. Its during these moments that I’m really glad I have Next News Lock Screen. Its an Android app that helps you catch up on the news in the world that interests you most.

Next News Lock Screen is a next generation lock screen that delivers the latest trending news, based on your reading and news category interests. You can choose news categories for sports, good, world news, technology, health, fashion, etc. You choose only the topics that interest you, and then you get the news, straight to your phone, complete with full screen color pictures.

There are some really cool features, here. First, the app displays a full screen pictures with a descriptive headline. The picture is digitally zoomed in so that it takes up the full screen. Depending on the size and pixel depth of the original, you may see some pixelation here, but every shot I’ve seen thus far has been big enough so that it doesn’t look bad. The picture, regardless of orientation is moved around the screen in some kind of “animation,” giving the display some life. If you want to see the whole picture, you can tap and slide up on the screen. You can cycle through available articles with a screen slide to the left or right. If you find an article you want to read, tap and hold it. Your default web browser will launch, with the article loaded. Its all very fast and very easy to use.

Next News Lock Screen is a really nice app. I’m very busy and often don’t have time to stop and check out news and other important information. However, I do often have a free moment to check mail and such on my phone. In those cases, I now can also scan the headlines without having to specifically do anything else – like start a new app – other than turn on my phone.

I did have a bit of trouble with this on my HTC One M8. I had some issues getting to the lock screen and then the app had issues downloading content when turning the device on at times. I think this may be Verizon or One M8 specific issue here in the States, however; and shouldn’t deter anyone from giving this app a shot. Verizon is a quirky US-based carrier, and they often make changes to device configurations that has been known to cause issues with some apps.
