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!
As you use Locket, you’ll also build up a history of pictures you’ve sent your friends. Scroll down in the Locket app to travel back in time and explore your History.
Locket is just for your closest friends. It’s perfect for your best friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, and families. To keep things friendly, you can only add up to 5 friends on the app.

Great app, minor complications
I love this app, the concept of having unique photos added to your home screen with the click of a button is amazing. I do however have some complications I’ve come across.
First, when I initially added the widget to my Home Screen it did not work. I did some research and found that it was due to the rotation lock on my screen, no problem, easy fix. Once I resolved that issue and had the widget added to my screen, photos weren’t showing up. That brings me to my next problem…
When my friends add a new photo, it won’t show up on the widget. It’ll appear in the history, but it’s not refreshing onto my screen. I’ll wait for new photos to replace the old, but it never does. I’ve been stuck with the same photo for a day, even after new ones have been added. I can see these new photos in the history section, so it’s not that big a deal, they just don’t refresh onto the screen. This doesn’t seem to be a problem for my friends, as the photos I take instantly appear on their screen and refresh with each new one. I’ve tried finding a solution, but so far nothing has worked.
LOVE THIS APP but a few suggestions
this app is so fun and such a cute way of sending stuff to your friends and loved ones however, I would like to be able to send different things to different people. for example, i would hate something i’m sending to my best friend get sent to my sister as well. being able to send pictures to people separately would be so convenient. another thing would be if you could make it to where you could put multiple widgets on your home screen for different people. right now i have my two best friends connected to my locket and i would like to see what they each send me on my home screen, but i cant cause only one picture can show up at a time. if i could have two widgets, one for each of them, so i can see what they each send me on my home screen would be great!! besides that this app is such a fun idea and i hope you continue to better and grow it because it has SO MUCH POTENTIAL!!!!
++ IN ADDITION, being able to write with your finger on photos you took in the app would be so fun!!! it would enable you to write messages and funny drawings on youre pictures you send to youre loved ones!! not a super crucial idea but i hope you take it into consideration because of its possibilities and fun value!!
I love this app! My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship and seeing his random pictures pop up on my home screen has made me very happy and feel more connected. At first my boyfriend mentioned that this was almost exactly snapchat, to which installed some doubts about this app in me. But it’s not at all like snapchat! It feels completely different which I love. I think the app is lacking some features but it does have a bunch of cool ones already! I’d love to see a reaction feature we’re you could place a thumbs up, heart, maybe even emoji? on the picture. I’ve also noticed it tends to update slowly rather than instant every time. Sometimes it’s just a few minutes behind, 10-20min. Other times it’s 1-2 hours. Still, love this amazing app!!
