"All the relevant info to your lock screen"

Reviewed by / Dec 02, 2013

DashClock is a lock screen replacement widget with lot of extensions (Android 4.2 )

Android 4.2 brought an interesting built-in feature: lock screen widget support. Since then DashClock has become one of the most downloaded and used lock screen replacement so far.

DashClock allows users to add to their lock screen info such as time/date, local weather, missed calls and unread text messages counter, calendar appointments, Gmail inbox, RSS, alarm and many other add-ons through "extensions".

The idea is basically push to your lock screen all that info you need to check out several times per day. This way you can save unnecessary "unlocks" and "clicks". In other words, DashClock helps you save a lot of time.

Configuring it is straightforward: swipe your lockscreen, push the " " button and set it at your whim. You can set it as your default lock screen and download more extensions to enhance its functionality.

DashClock is neat and polished. It looks outstanding in both smartphone and tablets (especially in the latter), and it's fully extensible. What else?

Developer's original description available here
Attention: on Android 4.4 devices, please check "Enable widgets" in security settings and follow the instructions below.

DashClock is a replacement lock screen clock widget for Android 4.2+ phones and tablets. It also exposes additional status items called extensions. The widget comes bundled with extensions that give you instant access to:

• Your current local weather
• Missed calls and unread text messages
• Your next calendar appointment
• Unread Gmail inbox or priority inbox conversations
• Your next scheduled alarm

To add the widget to your Android 4.2 device's lock screen, first make sure that "Enable widgets" is turned on in your security settings. Then, simply swipe to the left-most page of your lock screen and touch the "+" icon. Finally, select "DashClock" to customize and add the widget. You can make this the primary lock screen widget, replacing the default clock, by first touching-and-holding it and then dragging it horizontally to the very rightmost position.

    Displays only the information I want to see. The extensions from other apps are what make Dash Clock so useful.

    Someone else wrote this but I must concur. What is the point of having to side swipe to see this ON the lock screen? By the time I swipe, I can get past my lock. It took me a while to realize this too. Maybe the instructions were meant to be confusing but this should have a low maturity bc of install time (time it's on a device).

    Great idea for a app and everything works but you can't have a password on for it too work. That is stupid. I really want to use it but there's no point since I need to protect my phone.
