Get Your Appointments On Your Lockscreen With Lockscreen Calendar

Adding  stuff to make your Android lockscreen be more productive than it currently is seems to be a thing that has interested our devs since the times of S2U2. The currently available lockscreens for the little green robot offer a wide variety of functionality from music player controls, to picture viewing, to even launching certain apps. However, a simple thing like Appointments being displayed seems to have gone missing from the minds of our devs. If you heavily rely on your device to remind you of what you need to do, then you should really check out what XDA Recognized Developer j4velin has prepared for you. Lockscreen Calendar brings that small missing bit of aforementioned functionality back into our lockscreens. The app switches the alarm notifications that do show on the screen by your upcoming calendar appointments. Now, you cannot longer excuse yourself from forgetting an appointment as all you need to do to remember is hit the power button and look at your screen.

The app is still rather buggy, but it has come along nicely since the original conception. Please help the dev by leaving your feedback for further improvement of the app.

 

 Just made another small app which reads the next upcoming calendar events and shows them on your lockscreen (in the text field where normally alarm apps show the next alarm).

You can find more information in the application thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
