|The Lock Screen of your BlackBerry 10 phone doesn't have to be static and boring anymore. The "Live LockScreen" series of apps brings live content to your LockScreen.
'Live LockScreen: THE SUN' displays live Sun Rise, Set, Dawn and Dusk times, for both today and tomorrow, right on your Lock Screen where you can always see it at a glance without having to open any app or doing anything else. The widget is automatically updated daily at midnight so the information you see is always up to date.
Just enter your location (or get it from the GPS) and choose the wallpaper image, and then you can forget about this app and let it always show current Sun times on your Lock Screen forever.
This app shows not only the usual Rise and Set times, but also Dawn and Dusk times, i.e. when it actually gets dark in the evening or when the first rays of light start lighting up the sky in the morning. This is very useful for people who need to plan their daily activities based on daylight availability, for travelers to safely get back home from their trips before it gets dark, and so on. No need to launch any app anymore - from now on a look at your Lock Screen is all it takes.
It is a headless app working invisibly in the background, without ANY impact on your phone's battery life or performance as it is active only for a few seconds a day.
