LockScreen Notification Widget for JellyBean

I don't think anyone can really argue that JellyBean 4.2.X is an amazing operating system for the Android, but the widget system on the lockscreen is a little sketchy at times.

I've personally found it to be a little unusable due to the widgets just not being as informative or as productive as I'd like them to be.

I found this Lockscreen notification widget that's going to change all that!

As you can see from the pictures above, they take your ordinary lockscreen and create an instant interactive notifications list. I know some of you may be thinking, "So... I just pull down the status bar and get the same thing." and you're right, but having this widget available the moment you wake your device shaves seconds for every message and email you get.

If you're like me, I get 20+ emails and 50+ texts per day. This widgets will quickly become a valuable asset.

App Features:

  • 1. Handles all dismissible notifications including but not limited to missed calls, SMS, Facebook, Gmail, etc. (the app runs as accessibility service and receives all notifications) - there are issues with some apps, see notes below
  • 2. Allow launching the app from the notifications list. 
  • 3. Combines multiple similar notifications into one notification with counter. 
  • 4. Turns on the screen when a new notification arrives. (Optional)
  • 5. Display small/big clock with time and date desc above the notifications list. 
  • 6. Allow showing full original notification content as it appears on notifications bar.
  • 7. Clear notifications list when device is unlocked (optional) 
  • 8. Experimental - clear all notifications when clear button is clicked on android notifications bar. (optional) 

Installing it on your JellyBean 4.2.X device is very easy as well, and best of all Root Access is NOT required, all you have to do is:

1. Download and install the app from the link below.
2. Goto android settings - accessibility
3. Touch on NotificationsWidget and then turn it on.
4. Approve the android warning.
5. Lock the screen and add Notifications Widget to the lock screen.

If you don't have JellyBean 4.2.X, you can alternatively use WidgetLocker to use this widget
