Best Windows 8 Apps
6 May 2016
every so often, maybe after a few weeks time the app stops working on my Acer aspire windows 8.1. uninstalling it, then reinstalling it back seems to "fix" it, but then, after another while, the problem returns yet again. I have been on this treadmill quite a few times now & am getting frankly frustrated by the whole thing. I have been patient, but that has just about run out. I may be looking elsewhere.

I just reinstalled Windows 8 on my PC, and installed this app, selected preferred pictures from library and opened them but they didn't showed up at all!
I tried to go to Bing latest Backgrounds, selected the images from there, and clicked "add to lockscreens", and nothing happened! My lockscreen collection remains empty while the app was working perfectly fine before.
I also tried reinstalling the app several times, but got same results.
Plz fix this, cz this is my favorite app :(

Very nice app. I especially like that it will let you use BING daily background pictures in the rotation.

This app does exactly what it says it does. If you don't like the notifications they can be turned off in settings (charms which show when you swipe from right-hand side of screen, or mouse to lower right corner).

Needs config setting to turn off popup when lock screen is changed.

I was looking for an alternative to Chameleon as for some reason it wouldn't let me use a folder outside of "pictures" (which is just ridiculous!) So Lockerz is where I ended up. It does what it should, but the interface really needs work to make more of an impact, it's not necessarily practical either. Also the notification each time your lock screen changes desperately needs an "off" button. Changing the lockscreen it does well though.

Nice little utility that I was looking for.
Suggestion: while browsing pictures make thumbnails bigger and let me filter the list of files. Also, the mouse button "Back" should work like in other apps (though its Windows 8 itself does not use it consistently).

Add a bunch of pictures and it shuffles through them. Exactly what I wanted. What's more is that they sync to my other machines which is great!
You can also turn off the notification by going into pc settings > notifications

I like the you can pick any of your own images. Having to activate each image for your lock screen is tedious - should be able to activate groups. Worst is that app crops your large images strongly. Small images are upsized and cropped as well. App speaks of "collection" section but that section cannot be found. Am uninstalling.

Basically a desktop slideshow for your lock screen. Needs more sources, but they say they will add them.
