Beyond its existing news reader features, the WP8 version of RapidNews can dynamically update the background image of your Lock Screen with news information. Based on a user-configurable tile grid, a small embedded imagery produces an updated Lock Screen image about every 15 minutes if the app is selected as provider. On the app’s Lock Screen configuration page, just drag tile placeholders from a tray into one of the five story containers to arrive at a composition that fits your preferences. The grid is laid out to integrate nicely with the baked-in elements of the Lock Screen. Both, the main feed reader and the background reader connect to a MS-Cloud service to ensure reliability and integrity.
