    As many of you may know already, the Galaxy S4 disables lockscreen widgets and quick access to apps if you use ANY type of security to lock your phone. Any setting other than "swipe to unlock" grays out the options to edit any lockscreen apps.

    All I want to do is get quick access to my camera. I miss so many shots having to enter the pin and open the camera app. The iphone allows you quick access just to snap a quick pic and the Androids used to. And I cannot leave my phone completely unlocked.

    Does anyone know if there is an app that allows this function? Please give a specific app name. There are a zillion lockscreen apps.

    PS. I was going to upgrade to an S5, but this is a deal breaker for me. I will go back to using my old iphone 4S before I give one more cent to Samsung unless they reactivate this feature.

    I use Holo Locker together with PIN security on my GS4. Has quick access to camera and google search.

    If your PIN has timed out, then you will need to enter it after swiping to camera, but it's still faster than unlocking phone, then finding/launching camera app.
