Use Widgets on Your Lock Screen with Widget Pager

Use Widgets on Your Lock Screen with Widget Pager

To make our devices more efficient, many have turned to the use of widgets. Developers who care about their users often decide to put lots of work into making widgets an integral part of their applications and services. Widgets debuted on Android home screens, but Google later allowed users to use them on their lock screens in certain versions of the platform.

In the versions of Android that allow for lock screen widgets, you can ordinarily use only one widget per screen, which is far from perfect–especially when your device has a big screen that can house multiple widgets. To make this problem less of an issue, XDA Senior Member elesbb prepared a simple application that lets you add up to four widgets that are accessible directly from the lock screen of your device. The app creates a small square in the bottom left corner, which when pressed, opens the widget menu.

Widget Pager doesn’t require a root access. This application should work on every device with Android 4.0 or newer. The application is a nice way of enhancing the user experience because you can access all your favorite features even without unlocking your phone or tablet.

Reinvent your widgets and use them more often! Widget Pager is ready to help you with this. Head over to the Widget Pager application thread to get the latest build.
