    Hi,
    Anyone else find the Lock Screen Widget options missing or am I doing it wrong?

    Yes, they are. You can get them, but only if you use it with the swipe lock (without any pin codes). I hope they fix it, because that is not the way vanilla android works.

    Great, found it now. But does this mean there cannot be any security features enabled?

    Thats very bad, I need to secure the phone too. I saw other models have the pin/pattern feature together with lock screen widgets.

    stock touchwiz doesn't allow pin code/pattern unlock with widgets. I get around it with Widgetlocker. I think its $3 in the app store but its very worth it. Add whatever widget you want, pin code/pattern lock still kicks in

    I too have this problem. I like to have my phone password protected but also wish to enable shortcuts and widgets on the lock screen. I went to the play store to find widget locker as was recomended, but it says that it does not support my device. Perhaps the app needs updated for the Note 3. Anyone have another well trusted app to suggest in order to work around this problem?

    interesting...i got it on my N3 by backup/restore with Helium from my N2...didn't know it's not compatible. I do notice a bug in that when you pull down the notification bar when on the lockscreen it doesn't cover up the widgets like it did on my N2 but its not a big deal to me...

    What first peeked my interest was when I searched for it from the play store, it wasn't listed amongst the other apps. So I did a Google search and found it with a link to the play store. When I open the link to the play store a message came up at at the top of the window, with no option to download saying, "Your device isn't compatible with this version." I assume I have the one everyone is talking about. It's called the WidgetLocker Lockscreen from Teslacoil Software. I guess I'll have to wait unless someone else has a suggestion for a similar app.

    Yeah, it seems Widget Locker is having problems. I noticed a couple little bugs, and now it's completely useless.

    Thanks for the recommendation, but its silly not to have it in Touchwiz.. I mean how difficult it is? Or what issues they think it might cause?

    I don't understand why it isn't available with pass code/pattern.... Especially when you can use shortcuts on other devices... I hope Sammy fixes this soon... Getting my note 3 tomorrow

    I got it but how do you get it so that when you push the lock button it shows the weather panel / time.

    Right now I have to open it swipe. Kind of defeats the purpose no?

    I hope Samsung comes out with an update to fix this. On my GNex (Verizon), I had the pattern lock screen & could swipe to the right to access the camera and swipe left for another app. I believe this was available when 4.2 was released.

    This would be nice!
    Another thing that would be nice is if you had the option to disable the built-in notifications from SMS and Missed Calls from showing up on the lockscreen. That way those features could actually make sense when using dashclock.

    Widgetlocker was updated last week to support the note3. The previous version that I restored from my note 2 had a overlay issue but now that's fixed as well. With this and Nils, I have lock screen notifications while keeping my lock pattern in tact... You can also add whatever widget the you want to the lock screen but its $3 or $4...

    You don't have to have your text messages show up on your lockscreen... that's just an option.

    When using dashclock with the SMS extension set, when you receive an SMS the built-in ones automatically override the dashclock ones and push dashclock over one screen. So you would have the built-in ones on the main lockscreen page plus dashclock would pick it up.

    I read about better security feature being introduced in KitKat for lock screen widgets. Does anyone here have hands on experience?
