    A friend of mine tipped me of a new app that really helps if you're bored, and you want to go out. It takes the weather, your location and the time of day to mix up events and places nearby that you should check out. It seems to be using Foursquare for this, but in a quick and easy way. It takes less than a second from tapping the tile to seeing a huuuuge amount of tips in a beautiful way.

    Glance | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    I contacted them, and they said that a version of the app with Lockscreen support is on its way.
