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.

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
