Contextually aware apps are all the rage these days, but until now, we hadn’t seen a good lock screen that adjusted to what you want, when you need it. Cover for Android might change that. Cover is a lockscreen replacement app that promises to learn when and where you use the apps on your device. This is accomplished through cell towers and WiFi signals, which then gives the app the information needed to display shortcuts to the apps you tend to use where you are, whether it’s home, work, or in transit.
The app tray fits six shortcuts, which also allow you to peek inside the app by sliding to the side. In addition, Cover lets you multitask by jumping between apps using a drawer that slides out from the right hand side, and lets you set a custom ringer volume and wallpaper based on time and location.
If you’re interested, head to the source link and request an invite. You can also check out a promo video for Cover after the break.
