    Default Adding widgets to home screens?

    Hey everyone,

    I can't seem to figure out the simplest thing, adding widgets to my home screen.

    On Samsung it was right there net to my apps. All I can find now is the small window widgets which get placed over all the windows. Any help would be appreciated.

    Try longpressing an empty place on a homescreen.

    You have to enable lock screen widgets in the Settings. It's in the Security section, second from the top.

    There should be a Dashclock settings widget. Try placing that and then clicking it. That should bring you to Extensions. There, you can add some extensions, but the choices are limited to what comes with Dashclock. To get more you can search for Dashclock Extensions in Play.

    I've added all the extensions I want. I just can't get it on the lock screen like on iPhone. They. Appear once I unlock the phone but I want to see it without unlocking

    Have you actually placed the DashClock lockscreen widget on a lockscreen? This is the process on vanilla Android on my Nexus 5: Press Power to turn the screen off, then turn it on again to get back to the lockscreen. Then swipe in from the left until you get the big [+] sign, and tap it. You will then get a list of available lockscreen widgets to add. Pick DashClock. If you want DashClock to be the default lockscreen, then swipe back to the usual clock lockscreen widget, long press it, and remove it. Keep removing lockscreen widgets until DashClock is the default one. You can always add other lockscreen widgets back, using the same process described above.
