    Anyone know how to get the weather to show up on the lockscreen? I could easily enable it on my S3...can't find the option on the S4.

    Check this out:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ashclock&hl=en

    The S4 runs Android 4.2.2, which supports awesome customization and multiple screens on your lock screen, unlike pre-4.2 versions of the OS. DashClock is a brilliant third-party lock screen customization that is compatible only with Android 4.2+, and has a ton of built in extensions, as well as third-party extensions. The stuff you can do is pretty cool, and the extensibility is great. With 4.2, no need to run lockscreen replacements like WidgetLocker, which can sometimes behave a little funky on certain phones.

    A lot of reviews don't get into this much, but running 4.2 is a pretty big advantage that the S4 currently has over the HTC One (which is running 4.1).

    I can get weather on my lock screen when the phone is in
    the Samsung multimedia dock.

    By the way, the S-View cover will fit in the dock also.
    The Samsung dock is a great addition to a great phone.

    Sorry guys, but there's no way to get lockscreen apps on this phone if you use any of the secure unlock features (only unsecured). Android can do it, it's just Touchwiz that can't. Not sure if Samsung did it on purpose or what...

    WidgetLocker can be used to display Widgets & makes your Lockscreen pretty much as customisable as any Homescreen--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...w.widgetlocker
    And WidgetLocker also supports GLOBAL Badge Notifications (those little #'s like on iOS) which is far more reliable compared to how DashClock requires multiple extensions to track your Notifications, here's how--> http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...d.php?t=199709

    That's what I wanted to hear. I so look forward to google now on my lock screen. Now I'm really excited and makes my waiting for Verizon even more stressful. Lol

    Is that a "one model" fits all model dock?! I think I"ll get one as well for when my S4 arrives in a day or so.

    You just add the widget to your lock screen like any other widget, it's freaking awesome! I love this phone!

    Yeah this works as long as one is using Swype as the way to unlock the lock-screen. If one chooses other method of locking the phone (e.g. pattern or pin) then there seems to be no way of having weather on the lockscreen. That sucks!

    Unless you use the dock.

    I have pin code on mine and as long as it is in the dock it displays the weather.

    Yeah, but I would like to see weather on the lock-screen when not docked. I shouldn't have to compromise on security to see weather info on the lockscreen.
