  1. Allow multiple wallpapers or personalisation of live wall paper from bing

    Your application is great. The only thing is that WP8 shifted the whole Wallpaper thing to another world allowing live paper such as bing wallpaper to personalise the screen in a very less static way. I like the bing wallpaper functionality but then it lacks the lost phone screen functionality. Any way to push the wall paper text on current live wallpaper?

      • Let the user choose text colour

        White or black is good but perhaps a choice of text colours?

        • bing wallpaper integration

          Great app, but it would be nice if it updated the daily bing papers on phone 8 - maybe grab the image, stamp it and set it once a day?

          • Waht is the security of application by itself

            Because theirs may delete the application from the phone

              • prompt user to re-apply the overlay when lock screen is changed

                As somebody who frequently changes the lock screen, it would be nice for the app to periodically check & re-apply the overlay (say once a day)

                • Fix "Set as lock screen" dialog

                  [update]
                  If you hit the save icon, and just select "No" at the "Set as lock screen" dialog, the toast still shows "Saved! Lock your phone to see!"

                  [originally I thought this was a "suspend" bug, with my repro steps below. However, as I typed this up I found the above issue. There might not be any "suspend" issue at all; just residue from the above issue]
                  In the app, hit the 'save' icon. The "Set as lock screen" dialog box will show. Do not select "Yes" or "No" but instead hit the Windows key on your phone.

                  Now, open…

                    • Multi-coloured / contrasting text

                      Having black or white text is fine, but doesn't suit most of the photos I would use as backgrounds.

                      For example, if I have a white fluffy cloud on the left quickly contrasting to a darker cloud, or a building / person, then the black text would be lost on the right, the white text would be lost on the right.

                      Having the text XOR (can't think of a better term for it) against the background would be awesome. Especially if there was a user-configurable slider so that the level of contrast could be chosen. That way the contrast would…

                        • Enable setting/updating lock screen remotely

                          Love the idea, but I don't want to use the lock screen when my phone is NOT lost. I prefer having calendar notifications and quick status of apps on my lock screen for day-to-day use, and then only want to turn on lost phone screen if actually lost.

                          • Allow Bold or Outlined Text

                            Neither the default white or black provides a high enough contrast on my wallpaper image. They both look acceptable when viewed in the app, but once saved to the image both are difficult to read.

                            Black text:
                            https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?cid=85da66b136c383e5&resid=85DA66B136C383E5!182&parid=85DA66B136C383E5!135

                            White text:
                            https://skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?cid=85da66b136c383e5&resid=85DA66B136C383E5!183&parid=85DA66B136C383E5!135

                            I'd prefer not to use a louder color, so how about either a bold font or a slight outline?

                                        • Allow for theme color wallpaper generation.

                                          As a user, I want to be able to generate a lock screen based on one of the default color schemes.

                                          Some of us are just plain boring or find text over pictures too busy and distracting.

                                          Here is a reference: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4565898/what-are-the-rgb-values-of-the-default-accent-colors-in-windows-phone-7.
