From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

Launch Many News Sources with All News
Sometimes, we need all the help we can get to keep up with the non-tech news. After all, we’re generally too busy learning about the latest gadgets and their cool hacks to bother reading about the coming and going of a government shutdown. That said, it’s important to stay informed. And thankfully, there are tools out there that make staying informed just a little bit easier.
XDA Forum Member mopages created All News to help you access many major news sources all from one application. The app functions as a very purposeful bookmark applet, and it allows users to access 29 news sources from the app’s main menu. Clicking on a news loads its mobile webpage. And since this is all housed within this app, rather than as a bookmark in your browser, you can keep your browser bookmarks clean and only access these news sources when you’re specifically in the mood for news.
The current list of news sources are as follows:
Google News, CNN, Mail Online (The Daily Mail), Yahoo News, Reuters, Sky News, BBC News, RT (Russia Today), MSNBC (NBC news), New York Times, Huffington Post, Fox News, Washington Post, PressTv, LA Times, ABC News, USA Today, The Onion Network, Haaretz, The Sun, Al Jazeera, The Independent, The Guardian, Metro, Financial Times, The Hindu, Espress (Sunday and daily express), Mirror Online, The Times.
You can get started by visiting the application thread.
