Bing might not be everyone’s favorite search engine, but there’s no telling they use some beautiful daily images. The company has just released an app that will bring those images right to your lock screen.

It’s called Picturesque, and like some of Microsoft’s other cooler apps it’s the product of a Microsoft Garage project. The lock-screen will change pictures every day to whatever is on Bing.com, and you can cycle through the previous 6 images if with a swipe or shake of your phone. The app also delivers news updates, weather and calendar appointments if you like to look at that sort of stuff from your lock-screen.

Microsoft’s initiative to bring apps made in their developers’ free time has done well to add some nice gems to Android (it has done more for Android than Windows Phone, funnily enough) and we hope they keep rolling in. Be sure to check it out for free at Google Play.
