The app can change images (choosing from the past 6 days of Bing home pages) with just a shake of the phone or by swiping to the right. Just like the Next Lock Screen and Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Picturesque Lock Screen app allows users to access missed call notifications, text messages and also the search function directly from the lock screen without unlocking the phone.

With the Picturesque Lock Screen app, users can also choose to see current weather, news and Indian regional calendars on the phone lock screen as well. The app also lets user access quick setting and shortcuts controls like phone's camera, flashlight/ torch, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, volume, brightness settings from the lock screen.
Last month, the company had updated its Next Lock Screen app for Android with some quick glance notifications, apart from music controls and more. The Next Lock Screen app is compatible with devices running Android 4.0 and higher, but the new music player controls and instant messaging notifications for Skype, Line, and Google Hangouts only work with devices running Android 4.3 and higher versions. Some of the key features of the Next Lock Screen app include notifications for calendar, missed calls and text messages. The app can dial a conference call in a single tap without unlocking the phone.
