Twitter now owns the popular Cover lockscreen app

Cover App Twitter

Twitter Inc has just acquired popular Android lockscreen app Cover for an undisclosed amount. Usually an acquisition like this wouldn’t make much of a difference to the customers, but since Twitter has a bad history of acquiring companies and shutting them down, the users are beginning to get a little worried.

Cover lockscreen is basically a replacement to your stock launcher and it enables you to access a wide range of apps right within the lockscreen. It learns overtime, so users can only get access to the most used apps on the lockscreen. This is ideal for midrange devices which don’t traditionally come with stable stock launchers. If you haven’t downloaded Cover before, it might be worth a try now.

The Cover team said the following in a press statement – “Twitter, like Cover, believes in the incredible potential of Android. They share our vision that smartphones can be a lot smarter — more useful and more contextual — and together we’re going to make that happen. We’ll be building upon a lot of what makes Cover great, and we’re thrilled to create something even better at Twitter.”
