The Metro concept has plummeted into a new brand of Windows Utilities, this new lock screen is one of them. This lock screen was created by Cendaryn, who has separated this from his other projects by giving it its own thread.
This lock screen combines the functions of the current Windows Mobile 6.5 lock screen and the look of Windows Phone 7 Series. At the moment it does not look too exciting, but I’m sure there will be more colors and interesting features coming up as this is only the first release.

What’s new/different compared to the other lockscreen?
- 1. hardcoded background picture
- 2. left aligned text matching the Metro guidelines by Microsoft
- 3. new font “Zegoe” Light and Regular (will be installed with the CAB) matching the Metro design
A word about requests:
I had many requests via PM for changing alignment/site/whatever of the text. I don’t have the time to do this. But what you can do: post your background picture you want to see within this lockscreen. I’ll change that just for you Hint: make a screenshot of your device showing the lockscreen and work with Photoshop or similar “over” the layout so your new background doesn’t “interfere” with the text layout.
The files and more information can be found in the application thread.
