    This app is exactly what I was looking for. But I'm not sure if it is a bug or it is something that could be changed with the settings. Every time I get notifications queued up and try to unlock the phone. I get my grid to enter, so the phone could get unlocked, but the notifications are standing in the way and it is hard to do it.

    Your lockscreen is junk without this app. Lollipop lockscreen is running light years behind. The best thing I've done to my phone to date is to install this app. It saves tons of time and looks so stylish. Best lockscreen app.

    Used to be a fantastic app, but it no longer works on the lollipop android version for the Samsung 5s. I hope that there is an update coming soon to make it functional again.

    Syncing back notifications, etc. Can be added pre-4.3 with root. Needs to clear lock screen notification when app that created it dismisses it.
