    Can't get this to work. Settings says if you check it and swipe from right or left on the lock screen it will open up the camera app (or fav apps if you select those). Anyone been able to get this to work? Thanks from a new iOs to Android convert

    Took me over to find out.. Swipe down anywhere from the top third of the screen (by the time/date) and an outline of a rectangle should show up. From there you can swipe left or right to access the widgets. Welcome to android!

    Excellent! This worked perfectly. What a helpful community! I'm enjoying my new adventure with Android. Off to explore more...

    Android is not iOS... it's better n secure. Read above. You can't do it from a pin/password protected screen. Simple!

    Well, you used to be able to do it. On my HTC, I could still see lock screen icons of fave apps and drag them to get the password prompt before they opened. It just saved a step.

    Install the messenger app called "line". It has way more emoji than iOS. The app is on both platforms so it should cover your bases so long as your friends install it to
