Home Screen widgets introduce in iOS 14 allowed iPhone users to customize their Home Screens, for the first time. And App Store’s new app “Locket” takes full advantage of that freedom.
The unique app allows users to share photos like Snapchat but without opening an app. With the Locket app’s widget, iPhone users can receive photos of their friends and send them, instantly.
Locket app allows users to receive, capture, and send photos directly from their iPhone Home Screens
Designed for interaction with close relations: friends and family, the Locket app allows users to add up to 5 contacts on the app to share photos and let them what they have been up to or feeling throughout the day.
Once the Locket widget is added, sent pictures from the selected contacts appear instantly on the iPhone’s Home Screen. To send a picture in response, all users have to do is tap on the widget and take a picture and send it to their friend’s Home Screens.
New photos are updated automatically and the app maintains a history of all the photos sent to friends.
Locket is a widget that shows you live pictures from your friends, right on your Home Screen. It’s like a portal to the people you care about — a little glimpse at what they’re up to throughout the day.
Here’s how it works: when a friend sends you a pic, it instantly appears in your Locket widget on your home screen. To send a response, tap the widget, take a pic, and send it to your friends’ Home Screens. It feels like magic when your Locket updates with something new!
Download the Locket app from the App Store for free. It is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch and requires iOS 14.1 or later.
