[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea, Republic Of - mix1009 today is pleased to introduce Live Lock Screen 1.1 for iOS 5, their new Utility that is the first to leverage the capabilities of iOS 5 to allow users to change their lock screen image automatically. Images from the the Photo Library or individual Photo Albums can be displayed. The Options panel lets users choose any interval between 1 second and 60 minutes for image updates, and photos can be displayed sequentially or randomly. The app runs in the foreground or background and supports playback of iPod Library audio tracks.
Taking another step towards enabling users to personalize their iOS devices, Live Lock Screen exploits new capabilities of iOS 5 to create custom slide shows while the Lock screen is displayed. Comparable to the computer screen saver that appears in sleep mode, users can control exactly which pictures they wish to display. In addition, the app may be set to automatically launch on startup, and may be set to run for any period of time from one minute to forever. When running, users can swipe to see the next image before it changes automatically from within the app.
If the app is set to auto-launch on startup, the Lock screen is preempted by the Live Lock Screen. A button at the bottom of the screen reads either Touch to Start or Touch to Stop.
Pressing the Home Button closes the app and restores the Home screen while the app runs in the background.
