Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.

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.

The entities surrounding each of these are sometimes different and sometimes intertwined. We’ve gotten messages and comments requesting for a clearer distinction between these for future reference, which is why we are writing this feature. Let’s start...
