Notifications for Jelly Bean Lockscreen

A smartphone’s lock screen is probably its most viewed and accessed feature, so it makes sense for many users to find lock screen notifications to be extremely useful and practical. The problem is, Google’s latest Android version Jelly Bean, doesn’t have a lock screen with that functionality, which is why it’s great to see “Lock Screen Notifications Widget” pop up in the XDA forums.

An independently developed app by XDA Forum Member Roymam, Lock Screen Notifications Widget designates an area of the lock screen to display notifications. It is specifically intended for Android 4.2, but has been reported working with 4.04 as well. Roymam has packed in many features and customization choices such as clearing all notifications, turning on screen when a notification arrives, and displaying a small or large ‘time and date.’ The other great perk is that the app runs as accessibility service, meaning it can receive notifications on anything rather than being restricted to missed calls, emails, text messages, and Facebook. Instructions to have these notifications displayed are simple, and the app does not require root access.

Working for android versions 4.0.4 and 4.2, Roymam has made Lock Screen notifications Widget exclusively free and can be found in the original thread.

Would The LG G4 Fare Well With The Snapdragon 808?

The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display.
