Not limited with the notification center, the app shows relevant information from your apps straight on the lockscreen so there’s no need to visit the app itself, according to an article from GSMArena.

The Lockscreen will provide users their schedule for the day directly from the calendar app. If there are any reminders you need to set, you can do so in the lockscreen instead of manually initiating from the app.

In addition, the app enables you to show your favorite apps at the bottom of the screen which can be Work, Home, etc. Users are also allowed to launch apps straight from the lockscreen.

Next Lock Screen is free for Android and can be downloaded from the Play Store.
