Want to check you email urgent and the Android lock screen comes in the way? Here is way to add widgets to the lock screen on Android

Want to check you email urgent and the Android lock screen comes in the way?  Here is way to add widgets to the lock screen on Android

If you own a Android device and have Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) or up operating system you should try out the new lock screen widgets.  These are not only helpful such as seeing the clock or reading a email without unlocking the phone but also very easy to install.

The installation procedure for Lock Screen widgets is pretty simple.
Put your phone to sleep and then click the power button to light up your lock screen.  Next swipe from the left side of the display to the right side.  As you do this a secondary screen appears with a big + sign.  Tap the + sign to see the available lock screen widgets on your phone.  Mind you you will have to open the phone using passcode to access the widgets list.  In the widgets list, tap the widget you like and it will be added to your lock screen.  You can have upto five lock screen widgets that is one widget per swipable screen.

In case you want to remove the widget tap it, hold it and drag it to the "remove" icon.

This feature has been added by Google in the Jelly Bean os but mind you if you keep your email and calender visible on the lock screen anybody can read the inbox and your contacts.  

If you need additional lock screen widgets visit this site of computer world.  They list upto twenty lock screen widgets on their site.

Hope you liked the article.  Please post in your comments.
