"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.

    Works awesome on KitKat but not on Lollipop. I'll rate it better when it works with Lollipop.

    It was a wonderful 5-Star app until Android 5 broke the lock screen functionality of it on my Nexus 7. Until that gets patched, it will remain only OK at 3-Stars.

    It's not showing up when i love my screen. It only shows on my main page just the time & the alarm. Nothing else I want it to show.

    Great app but the deal breaker is that you cannot have pattern security on the phone
