    I love the semi-transparent lock screen! I want mine to look like that! Has it been shared before how to do it? Like frodobaggins?

    Do you mean the blurred home screen as lock screen? It's a common enough thing - quite a lot people do it. You can do it all from your phone:

    1). Take a snapshot of your home screen
    2). Open it in an image editing app for WP like Fotor
    3). Blur it
    4). Save it
    5). Set it as your lock screen.

    Easy! There was an app that basically does nothing but this. All those steps at the press of a button practically. I thought it was called Blur. But I can't find it now. Anyway it's an easy enough thing to do.

    Wouldn't it be great if the tiles naturally started right under the clock...

    I totally agree. The idea is that the seventh row, if you know what I mean, is deliberately only half visible, to show the user that there is more content that can be scrolled down to. But if it were me, I'd lose that idea. The user knows what's on their own phone. Make 7 rows fit nicely, because they do fit. I'd also make an option to hide the clock, so that it only appears when you tap the top of the screen, like the other elements.

    By the way, I love your lock screen. I don't like the time/day/date being so huge on the lock screen, or being there at all. I think it's messy. I didn't just wake from a coma - I know what day it is. Make that an option too. The way yours is separated with a block colour from the weather looks really nice. Is that something you did yourself or is it a function of your weather app? And which weather app is that?

    I did it the wallpaper myself. The weather info on the lock screen is from the weather app, The Forecast; in the notification area, LockTemp. I actually made 4 different wallpapers, one for rain, sun, night, overcast. I change it myself if I'm bored, but it tends to stay on overcast. I would love to find a weather app that did that automatically with this look. The Amazing Weather HD lockscreen has a similar option, with the weather image being separated from the bottom, you might check it out.

    I think WeatherFlow can set wallpapers based on current conditions. But not custom ones AFAIK...

    Yes, there are a few apps that can change the wallpaper based on weather. I was saying I wish one had the specific look I used for my wallpaper.

    fortunately I live in Germany where you can get all colors - even without contract!
    So, yes it represents my phone and I love how it matches the color of the moon ;)
