We spend a lot of time tinkering away on our smartphones, when in reality perhaps our smartphones should be working for us. We’ve seen attempts by developers to create smarter apps, such as IFTTT for the iPhone, and Chameleon launcher for Android devices, and now looking to help users create a more seamless user experience, the Cover lock screen app has been launched in open beta. The app has been around for a while now, but previously it was limited to a closed beta where not everyone could download the app just yet.
However for those who are interested in creating a smarter smartphone for themselves, the app is available as a public beta via the Google Play store. For those unfamiliar with Cover, it’s basically a lock screen app that tries to provide you with the best apps at the right time all from the lock screen itself. For example it will be able to detect when you are in the car and prepare apps such as Google Maps, TomTom, and etc. However when it detects that you might be at work or school, productivity apps such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, and etc. would be available.
As it stands the app is a free for download, so if you’re wondering what the fuss is all about, hit up the Google Play store for the details.
