The free app gives the user an alternative lock screen which uses GPS to tailor its offerings based on the user's location; home, work or out.

The most frequently used applications at these three destinations are given shortcuts on the lock screen and when swiped, opens directly into the user's most used application.

For example: Spotify may be the most used app when at home, so that will appear at the top of the lock screen when at home while email will top the list when on the move.

It's a simple idea that serves a useful purpose.
