Add message on Nexus 7 lock screen

The lock screen is one of the most left out item. Is there an Android app for customizing the lock screen text for maximum productivity? For example, when I lose my Nexus 7 and someone wants to return it to me, the lock screen can display  a message like "Please call xxx-xxxx if this tablet is found. Reward:$$$" , which tells people how to return to contact the owner.

Without other apps, Android 4.1 in Nexus 7 has the built-in feature. From Home screen, touch Settings, go to "Owner Info" and enter a lockscreen message. Now you get a customizable lock screen.
