A (very) long time ago, Android introduced a feature that allows you to display certain widgets on the lock screen. For some reason, this useful feature was removed with the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, limiting widgets to the home screen only. While some manufacturers, like Samsung, have brought limited versions of lock screen widgets, but generally you are limited to the widgets that the manufacturer has already created for you. Well, no more! Lockscreen Widgets brings back the functionality of yesteryear, with some additional features.
- Lock screen widgets appear as a paged "frame" at the top of the lock screen.
- Add a widget by tapping the plus button in the frame. This plus button will always be the last page.
- Each widget you add gets its own page.
- You can press, hold and drag a widget left or right to reorder it.
- Touch the frame with two fingers to enter edit mode: resize and move the frame, and delete the current widget here.
- Touch the frame with three fingers to hide it temporarily. It will appear again after the screen turns off and on again.
- Any home screen widget can be added as a lock screen widget.
- You can make the background of the widget frame opaque if you want to overlay items from the lock screen.
- You can make the widget frame hidden when notifications are shown on the lock screen.
- You can make the widget frame hidden when the notification ringtone is off.
