How many times do you see your smartphone lockscreen a day? I can safely say it’s very very often. Looking at the same lockscreen every time we check our phone is just too boring. Well, thanks to Android being a highly customizable platform, there are some cool lockscreen replacement apps available free in Google Play Store.
Time Machine Locker – Android Lockscreen App
I would like to introduce an interesting award-winning lockscreen app called Time Machine Locker. This free app is able to automatically identify memorable photos from your social network and other sources using a special algorithm and display the photo on your lockscreen with added beautiful effects. In other words, your lockscreen won’t always be the same picture and you’ll also be surprised occasionally with new photos when you unlock the screen.
Wonderful pictures on lockscreen, always!
Time Machine Locker App Interface
Time Machine Locker app uses Facebook login for user authentication and the app requires permission to access to your Facebook profile, pictures, some public information, etc. From my experience in using the app, it’s able to analyze my current relationship and memorable moments in Facebook and uses photo of wonderful places I’ve visited and people that I care. I guess that’s why my wife’s photo is appearing very often on my lockscreen and it always puts a smile on my face when I see it. If I come across a picture that I like, I can even share it to my Facebook or cast it to my Facebook friends.
A few weeks ago, I received a CityLite II Ultra Backpack from Targus for review. CityLite II Ultra Backpack is one of the latest models in Targus CityLite II series that they just launched in April 2014. I’ve been using it daily and truly love it as my primary laptop bag now.
Targus CityLite II Series
The latest Targus CityLite II series consists of the following 4 new models (as shown in above picture) :-
- 15.6″ CityLite II Ultra Backpack (rightmost) RM238
- 15.6″ CityLite II Max Backpack (leftmost) RM238
- 15.6″ CityLite II SL Backpack (2nd leftmost) RM288
- 17″ CityLite II Ultimate Backpack (2nd rightmost) RM319
Prior to using this CityLite II Ultra Backpack, I’ve always thought the free laptop bag that comes with any purchase of a new laptop is good enough for everyday use. I had to change this misconception of mine after using a CityLite II Ultra Backpack because I was impressed with the extra protection it offers and some features that totally worth the money.

Targus CityLite II Ultra Backpack, like all the backpacks in CityLite II collection, is designed for travel and everyday use. It is great for business commute, travel, and as a carry-on for airplanes too. The safety lock anti-theft puller system prevents easy access into the backpacks. It’s very effective to avoid unwanted opening of the bag and makes it harder for pickpockets to unzip and steal anything from inside the backpack. This feature provides better safety against pickpockets and thieves especially when commuting.
