App Spotlight: Tetra Lockscreen re-imagines your Windows Phone lock screen!

The stuff you can see on a Windows Phone lock-screen just got better!

Introducing Tetra Lockscreen, the most amazing lockscreen app I have seen to date on Windows Phone.

Tetra Lockscreen is a free app that lets you add “widgets” to your lock-screen such as calendar, location, activity tracker and stopwatch, giving you easy access to these useful tools without having to unlock your phone.

Each widget can have multiple ta bs that you can swipe sideways for more views. All without unlocking your phone.

Thanks Ahmed Ibrahim for sharing this tip!

TrueCaller is now available for Windows Phone and it works perfectly. (Not that I am personally a big fan of it, though).

This app requires a phone restart when installed and integrates directly with the Windows Phone OS to display caller id information of unknown callers. It can also notify you of spam callers.

Available now: Citrix Receiver for Windows RT/Windows 8

by Shijaz Abdulla on 11.11.2012 at 22:58

The Citrix Receiver for Windows 8 and Windows RT are available now on the Windows Store.


This 4.53 MB download lets you access your Windows VDI session from your Surface, tablet or slate device or computer running Windows 8 or Windows RT.

This potentially enables new scenarios for IT to support BYOD scenarios in today’s world where the line between work and home devices begin to blur. Users can work on any Windows device they choose, regardless of whether it runs Windows 8 or Windows RT and still be able to connect securely to their corporate managed Windows desktop session, which is governed by their organization’s IT policies. On the device itself, they can install and run their favorite apps, and store personal pictures, media and files.


The Citrix receiver is also available for non-Microsoft platforms, enabling access to Windows desktops from heterogeneous platforms such as IOS, Android, etc.

Also noteworthy is the fact that the Remote Desktop client from Microsoft is also available with Windows 8 and Windows RT, allowing you to connect similarly to desktop sessions without Citrix.
