Maximize Lock Screen Widgets with Xposed Module

Lock screen widgets are incredibly useful tools. They give us glanceable information before we even unlock our devices. And depending on their contents, they allow us to quickly determine whether we need to unlock and use our phones before we actually use them.

However, as useful as lock screen widgets are, their functionality is often limited by the amount of screen real estate they are given to work with. Thankfully, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG has the perfect solution with his Xposed module. (If you’ve not yet heard of Xposed, be sure to read our introductory article about the fantastic and versatile framework.)

As described by MohammadAG, this Xposed module allows for lock screen widgets to be maximized so that they are able to display more information at a glance. The Xposed module has thus far been tested on the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One, but it should be compatible with all 4.2-based devices. And as with all Xposed-based modifications, installation is a breeze.

Those wishing to get a little more from their lock screen widgets should head over to the modification thread to get started.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
