The Glance Screen app for Windows Phone has received an update this morning that brings support for Lock screen backgrounds on your Glance screen. The update, which is available now, has the normal mix of tweaks and fixes but the wallpaper support is new and it brings a bit of a personal touch to the screen instead of the black screen with information on it as before.
If you aren’t familiar with it, the Glance Screen app allows you to view key information such as emails waiting, Facebook updates or
missed calls or texts on your Windows Phone screen without actually having to turn on the device & go to the Lock screen. Just wave your hand in front of your phone and it will display information on your screen at a glance.
The app isn’t compatible with every Windows Phone and generally the phones that are compatible will be those who have it pre-installed. That said, you can certainly download it and give it a go on your device. The settings for the Glance screen can be found under Settings on your device.
In this new mode, you can have your lock screen wallpaper as the Glance background either as a dithered color or black and white background. It is a nice touch!
