    Question How to add camera and weather to the lock screen?

    At the lock screen, when swiping left, we get the option to add a few widgets... but they are soo less?
    Is there a way to add the camera widget to my lock screen, and also the weather app?

    Camera is there already, just swipe the other way!

    There are a number of widgets that support placement on the lock screen, do a play store search for lock screen widgets and go to town. Beautiful widgets has a great weather widiget for the lock screen, as one example.

    not possible if your are hooked up with your companies exchange account*

    Exchange locks out lock-screen widgets. See here: Issue 39998 - android - 4.2 lock screen widgets disabled with an exchange account on device - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

    Hi an option would be to use the "camera unlock" application I've developped. Just press 3 times the power button and you get access to a camera even from a password protected device hooked up with you companies exchange account ...

    Here it is: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...meraUnlockFree

    Hope this helps !
