Back at Build 2o14 Microsoft announced some new lockscreen apps for WP 8.1, that bring more customization and personalization to phones. Today Belfiore tweeted that the Beta version of these might be available for WP 8.1 users on 1 Gb devices as soon as next week
Lockscreen app- sorry for being quiet. The beta (English, 1gb+) is ALMOST here, perhaps a week. We hit a few snags & added a feature.

Belfiore stated that the app hit “some snags” but hopefully that’s all been sorted out, and we can see it soon enough; for what it’s worth Belfiore has been accurate in his time frames when promising updates and releases over Twitter.
