Adding widgets to lockscreen, Jelly Bean 4.3
Jelly Bean 4.3 on an unrooted AT&T GS3...
I understand that all the widgets that are available on the Galaxy S3 (which I love) can be added to various home screens, and that is all well and good, but why am I limited in which of those widgets can be added to a LOCKscreen? I always have my phone on the center home screen (with the clock/weather widget, etc.) and don't go to the other home screens (use the app drawer to get to my apps instead. That's why i want to add other widgets to my lock screen, for example, an LCD Clock widget i got from the Google Play store (PK Led Clock Widget) to replace Dashclock or the traditional/fixed lock screen clock. When i go to a new lock screen & press the plus sign, i get a very limited list.
Is this a restriction of the OS? If so, then 95% of the widgets are useless to me, but at least I will know to stop looking for how to do this.
Any help appreciated.
Alao, a quick question while I am here... if I remove/delete an entire home screen, the apps themselves will not be removed, just that screenful of shortcuts, correct?

To #2, yes, deleting a homescreen just removes the app icons, not the apps themselves.
