Tailor Your Lock Screen for Different Times and Places

Teach your phone your app habits with Cover

In the morning, your phone is a news hub. In the afternoon, a productivity wiz. At night, takeout ordering machine.

With Cover, your Android can transition between all three (and then some) automatically.

The one-of-a-kind app replaces your standard lock screen with one that provides easy access to the different apps you use in different contexts.

You don’t pick the apps – Cover does, based on how you use your phone. If you open the same news app every morning, use Google Maps in the car, and consult IMDb while watching TV at night, Cover will learn and adapt accordingly. You can even set a custom ringer volume and wallpaper for different locations.

The apps line up on the left side of the screen. You can “peek” at an app by swiping it halfway across the screen; swipe all the way across to open it.

Talk about unlocking your lock screen’s potential.
