    As far as I know, I think the new lockscreens will be an app. Because they are going to release the API so other devs can make their app take control of the lockscreen

    Lockmix allows you to put lots of extra info on the lockscreen already, it doesn't allow you to show it diagonally though.

    The new lockscreen functionality is relating to the way the user interacts with unlocking the phone, not just with the display of information/text. Take a look at the video posted earlier in the thread and you'll see how the screen unlocks. The "diagonal" screen shown is only one theme - the implication is that developers can code their own transitions and come up with some really engaging ways to unlock your phone.

    c'mon, its a legitimate concern, I heard iOS did it in 7, but I haven't encountered it yet. (not saying I'm a thief)
    Its still is possible in iOS, and always have been. Just hold the power button and turn it off, wont ask for lock screen code.

    That's not a bug, unfortunately its just not a feature I believe. I don't think that feature is even that common these days.
    Would be a welcome addition though.

    I can turn off my iPhone 5S even locked using the same method.

    Nah this can't be an app, it has to be included. The functionality it has can simply not be achieved with apps on Windows Phone. Question is... will be be for all WP8.1 devices or only for Nokia's......

    Yeah, I really hope it will also be forbsamsungs, HTCs and huaweis. And also, if they will allow developers to make this nee users will barely notice it. They need to put this in an gdr update, and then if someone got an app in his phone it should be shown by in the start and theme selection so people can click on a theme they like. I hope Microsoft will do this because it will really get some new people!

    This will be bundled as JOE said during his AMA that it may come in a later GDR update (which means it's for everybody out there) AFAIK. And the API will be made available to other devs also I suppose.

    It's not released yet. It will be developed by Rudy Huyn. Not sure if it will be an app or a bundled feature. Most probably a bundled feature.
    Absolutely incorrect.

    Its an API which will be open to Developers, meaning the possibilities are seemingly endless. The API is still being developed but during //build/ Rudy Huyn was given a chance to develop the lockscreen. Its not only an app made by him, but its an API, which can be done by any developer. Joe Belfiore mentioned that he does not know when the API would be released

    Sorry for off-topic but any chance someone still have the default lockscreen wallpaper of WP 8? After updating to 8.1 preview we have some new lockscreen wallpapers but lose some old ones. For example (excuse my terrible description XD), the 'blue rain drops', 'hand drawing on the floor with chalk', and so on.

    I wish, but doubt it...just sounds like a skin for your lockscreen.

    they should have release atleast a couple of themes in the devs preview or in the complete wp 8.1 device like 630, then everyone would be aware of this feature and would helped create even more hype..
