Multi-purpose Lockscreen Widget: Why have lockscreen widgets in panes that you need to swipe through, when you can have a vertical scrolling list of widget extensions in a single lockscreen-widget-pane? Well... There might not be a Dashclock Extension available for the function you're looking for... But, the existing number of Dashlock Extensions is already enormous. So, you're bound to find a few that will be useful to you.

Nothing new to most users I'm sure. I use DashClock for simple things like alarm, weather, charging text, on my homescreen, as far as lock screen, its a bit annoying to have to install different addons to get everything. It does make for a nice functional addition to my home screen though!
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.
