“We wanted to build a lock screen focused on fandom, not just beautiful images. Our app allows people to craft a more personalised experience centred around their passions and interests,” Pavan Kumar Desari, Program Manager of the Favorites Lock Screen team, wrote in the company’s blog post recently.

Developed in the Microsoft India Development Centre, the app provides the user an option to choose wallpapers from categories such as sports, actors, musicians, animals and automobiles.

There is also a search bar to let the user search directly from the lock screen.

They can access apps and settings with a tap through the lock screen and also choose how to unlock the Android device.
