Next Lock Screen update: more personalization, weather status

Microsoft's experimental Garage Team came up with a bunch of pretty nifty Android apps ever since they started it earlier this year. One of the useful apps they developed was the Next Lock Screen, a time-saving quick launcher that lets you see the important things you need to see even when your smartphone is on locked screen mode. An update to the app now brings even more personalization options, which can be an alternative to the Android 5.0 Lollipop's new notification scheme.

Facebook Home update teased in first look video

Facebook Home originally launched back in April. This was right around the same time the HTC First Facebook phone launched with AT&T and while that handset has long since disappeared from the memories of many, it looks like Facebook is not quite ready to give up on Home. We saw an update back in October that added support for a variety of other social services, and more recently, Facebook has dropped a first look style video teasing the next update.
