DashClock Widget

Extensible lock screen widget

NOTE: this app was deprecated by its author.

DashClock is a replacement lock screen clock widget for Android 4.2+. It also exposes additional status items called extensions. The widget comes bundled with extensions that give you instant access to:

  • Missed calls and unread text messages
  • Your next calendar appointment
  • Your next scheduled alarm
  • Weather from choice of location

Other extensions are available. To add the widget to your Android 4.2 device’s lock screen, simply swipe to the left-most page of your lock screen and touch the "+" icon. Then, 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.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
