Galaxy Photo Screen Lock Displays a Photo Slideshow on Your Lock Screen
Being the most often looked at part of our device’s UI, the lock screen is prime real estate for things that we care about and are important to us. Be it the time, widgets, or shortcuts, we all have some sort of personalized setup for our lock screens that best suit our tastes. And perhaps, photos may be among them. If this is true in your case, XDA Senior Member wangxing has developed an app called Galaxy Photo Screen Lock which may be of your interest.
Galaxy Photo Screen Lock is a lock screen replacement app that displays photos and images right on your lock screen. What makes this stand out beyond the default lock screen some OEMs add with custom wallpapers is that wangxing’s offering allows you to choose multiple pictures that can be displayed as a slideshow. In addition, it comes with a selection of beautiful static custom backgrounds and all the essentials, such as time and weather widgets, and a camera shortcut. All these elements are also customizable and can be toggled on and off if you wish to do so.
