Very nifty. It's remarkably uncrowded, with nice, not overwhelming design and setup options. Not for the battery-miser set, but quite a nice upgrade.

My side project, DashClock, is now open source and live on Google Play!

DashClock is a replacement lock screen clock widget for Android 4.2+. It also exposes additional status items called extensions. The widget comes bundled with extensions that give you instant access to:

• Your current local weather
• Missed calls and unread text messages
• Your next calendar appointment
• Unread Gmail inbox or priority inbox conversations
• Your next scheduled alarm

To add the widget to your Android 4.2 device's lock screen, simply swipe to the left-most page of your lock screen and touch the "+" icon. Then, select "DashClock" to customize and add the widget. You can make this the primary lock screen widget, replacing the default clock, by first touching-and-holding it and then dragging it horizontally to the very rightmost position.

Developers: The project is open source at, and if you want to write custom extensions, there's an API! Visit the open source project for more info.

+Kevin Purdy You say "Not for the battery-miser set..."  Do you really think it will have a big impact?
+Harry Chaffee To be fair, any widget or app that checks things like the weather, the Gmail count, etc. will sip a little battery. But I was apparently mistaken in citing lock screen widgets as a battery drainer--the Nexus 4 had a process called "wakelock" that was problematic at first shipping, but that didn't have to do with the lock screen. My fault.
