Nokia releases Glance Background for the Lumia

/ 5 years ago


It seems that Nokia has just published an outstanding app that builds upon the popular Glance Screen feature. If the Glance screen was a bit too boring for your taste, you can now spice it up by adding a background of your own choice to it. Thanks to the Glance Background which is still in beta, you can choose a set of backgrounds for your Glance Screen.

To use the Glance Background you have to turn on the Glance Screen first. It is available with the Amber update on Lumia 720, 820, 920, 925 and 1020. There you’ll find a few pre-defined backgrounds, but you can add more from your gallery. So why not give it a try? it will certainly add some style to your handset.

Once you select a custom picture you can apply color effects or you can just convert it to a single color (of course it will not support the full color range since it will be displayed in a low powered state). Not every picture is suitable for a background on the Glance Screen since it’s transformed into a low-quality 8-bit image, but there are still backgrounds out there that will fit just perfectly. Or you can even design it yourself if you are up to it.

You can download the Glance Screen app on your Amber-running Lumia at any time, and yes it is a free application.

    So… I literally just looked for this app on my 1020… And nothing came up. Is it called “Glance Screen”? or “Glance Background”? Either way it doesn’t show up.
