Awesome Lock updated in preparation for the World Cup

Awesome Lock

Awesome Lock is popular Windows Phone 8 lockscreen app that allows you to customize your Windows Phone lockscreen by adding news, weather, currency exchange rates, Facebook notifications and more to your lockscreen.

The app was recently updated to version which adds a handful of performance improvements and bug fixes but most notably adds support for pinning news and scores about the 2014 FIFA World Cup to your lockscreen.

To add the World Cup updates to your lockscreen you will need to go to Awesome Lock's Home Page and scroll to the bottom of the add-on choices until you see the "add content" button bar. Tap the button bar and scroll down until you see "FIFA World Cup Brazil", tap that listing and go back to the Home Page and the World Cup option will now be available to add to your Awesome Lock lockscreen.

Awesome Lock World Cup

Awesome Lock was already a feature rich Windows Phone 8 app and adding World Cup scores only adds to the app's appeal. There are two versions of Awesome Lock available. The free version does have some functionality limitations with what or how much you can place on your lockscreen. The pay version does have a trial and a $1.49 price tag. Both versions include the World Cup feature.

Team USA! But backup team is Spain, as USA doesn't usually do so well. And the bracket they are in? Good luck for them.

montel22 says:

USA and backup is France.

sahib lopez says:

*snickers* usa :P .......... ah i needed that ;)

I swear USA got to the semi if not quarter finals last yr. People don't recognize how good USA is even when they do good. Lol. (not from there btw, Spain I my team, backup whoever is interesting)

Metaru says:

Saw USA v Mexico in the WCQ, game was absolutely nuts. However, when they lose I'm going for Ghana and Ukraine (since Shakhtar lost in Champions and Europa)

Metaru says:

I don't know if Ukraine is even in?

Narciso Neto says:

Sorry all, Brazil already won that!!! USA??? Dafuq is that on a Soccer World Cup? haha

Damn, only want FIFA2014 Soccer.

Games Goblin says:

It's football, not soccer :) :)

Darren Walsh says:

Facebook messenger updated too!!

Darren Walsh says:

Ah rats I didn't see it there when I got a notification on wpc I only scrolled down two or three articles, sorry about that lads!!

VinomX says:

I wish I could do this using Bing Sports. I love their preparation for the World Cup.

Reebs Reebs says:

Hopefully Cortana will be updated to show world cup scores and link to Bing Sports.

It does. Just go to interests, sports, then country. :)

Go Ireland


Shit, we didn't get through. A well I don't like soccer anyway.

mab664 says:

I don't like you... Anyway

Will6371 says:

Thank you, I'm sure the feeling isn't mutual.

Thimbro says:

USA Italia and Bosnia ftw. This app looks cool.

eduardopl says:

Sofascore updated too :D

Argentina or Brazil to win! Although, I want England then Spain to win

sHAYM4N says:

3 Lions on my shirt. Come on England!

jtrujillo says:

I just downloaded the free app and it does NOT include the World Cup feature.

vladfrenkel says:

Brazil, Germany, Italy, France, Uruguay or Netherlands for me.

SergyOrtiz says:

You almost pick the 32 teams available.

If the update includes posting scores on the lock screen, that would be cool!  But it sucks that awesome lock only updates every 30 minutes.  Shouldn't matter anyway, soccer scores move very slow xD

mtav1 says:

I never felt the need to use this app; way too mch clutter.

MikeSo says:

I bought and used this app before, but the FB feed never seemed to update correctly so I stopped. Wonder if it's less buggy now.

Apoc says:

Doesn't seem to be offered on the free version, the World Cup option that is.

edjr07 says:

Brasil!!!!! Second is USA.

Fndlumia says:

Aussie Aussie Aussie

Installed free version and tried to enable the FIFA addon but was told I had to pay $1.49. Your review makes out that its free when it appears it isnt?

Where's Lock screen theme app that Joe Belfiore demoed @build? :/

creanyo says:

Whether in this app is totally wrong, do not take the position correctly

creanyo says:

Weather option I meant :P
