Widget, Lockscreen, Homescreen Help Needed for Former iOS User


Saturday 17th of November 2012 / androidforums.com
Okay, I admit, less than 24 hours on this new HTC One X+. Loving the device, screen, speed, battery life a major issue but I'm learning about process monitor, the Carat App, JuiceDefender, etc.What I can't get over is how ugly the widgets are compared to the comparable functionality on the iPhone lock screen notification center, especially when running Intelliscreen X on a jailbroken phone. Why does there have to be all this space around the widgets? On iOS they all just butt up against each other and you can expand and collapse them (collapsed they just show a total count). I think part of the problem is I'm still learning, but if anyone can throw me a bone, I can't believe on the homescreen I can only fit two 4x1 widgts and 8 icons, are you kidding me? (Widgets are Power Toggles and News Republic). There's all this wasted space around the widgets and huge icon spacing. Also, on the lockscreen, can you get rid of the fricking big clock all together? The time is always in the upper right of the notification bar? I remember my last phone before iPhone 3 years ago had that stupid big c

Collapsible Widgets and Widgets on Lockscreen? Jelly Bean 4.2?


Monday 19th of November 2012 / androidforums.com
New to Android. Loved having essentially what I call 'collapsible widgets' on my old iPhone 4 on the lockscreen (jailbreak.) Essentially when text messages, emails, calendar event reminders, or even SportCenter updates came in, they would show up in a widget on the lockscreen (ala Intelliscreen X app) and you could do an action (like delete/clear the notification), or you could collapse the widget so that there was just a header like 'SMS Messages (3)' with 3 being the number of unread and you could uncollapse it to see the messages. The widgets would just always stack up together. If they didn't all fit, you could scroll down to see them. If all the info in a particular widget that was open didn't fit in the widget's window, you could scroll down to see the rest of the info. All this was done on the lockscreen.Granted, I didn't have any sensitive information to worry about people seeing. But you could choose, just like Android what shows up and what doesn't.In running Jelly Bean 4.1 with Sense+ (4.5) on the HTC One X+, I found I had to install WidgetLock to get control of the widget

HTC One x jelly bean music lock screen disappeared


Sunday 06th of January 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello.I have an unlocked international One x .Recently the music widget on my lockscreen disappeared. Now there is only a grey background with the clock and the ring to pull. I have jelly bean installed, but it still worked for quite a while after the Update. The other lock screen options (friends, productivity, etc) still work.Does anybody else have this problem ?

Lock Screen Customization


Wednesday 19th of June 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
What things do you recommend to customize the HTC One lockscreen? I have looked at the settings in personalize and none of those really do it for me. I have heard of apps like Widget Locker and Dashclock (which unfortunately doesn't work on the One), but I'd like to get your opinions first to see what is used and liked.

More than one lockscreen on widget locker


Wednesday 27th of November 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello. Had my htc a week now and loving it! I put widget locker on straight away so could customise the lock screen (it has 4.3 and sense 5.5). I also use dash clock so I get the notifications light up my screen when they arrive. Anyhoo I like my lock screen fairly basic with just the clock and notifications and unlock slider. My question is can you have more than one lock screen? The reason being is that I like to use google music and tune in radio and I have to keep unlocking the phone just to pause what's playing on the home screen. I would like to put the widget on the second lock screen so I can just slide across and hit pause. When widgetlocker is active I would have assumed that a widget only appear on the lock screen when something is playing in that app and then disappears when you have finished with it. Nothing shows up though. I have put the music apps into the pull out slider on then lock screen but there are still too many button presses to get into the app just to pause it. Can anyone suggest a way since the solid tune in radio widgets look ugly on the lock screen itsel

What the 4.4.2 Htc One KitKat Bar, in AT&T 's pocket, might taste like.


Friday 07th of February 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
So, I've been watching closely on the Sprint and Verizon software updates Here, I've compiled a few changes we can expect from AT&T 's update: 1. No more lockscreen wallpaper options, or removal of the lock screen. The ability to add widgets can be accessed by swiping from the right edge of the display to the left. Why can't I change this? Technically speaking, before 4.4, you'll notice you can have the lockscreen wallpaper OR lockscreen with widgets, to name a few. If you add widget mode, it removes the wallpaper mode, and vica versa. So HTC has built in the LOCK SCREEN with the WIDGET Mode active. Hence why no more lockscreen wallpapers, and no more removing lock screen. 2. Camera - Focus/Zoom bar, at the bottom edge of the viewfinder, removed. Now, one must pinch and zoom with two fingers. Pinch(Thumb and index finger apart and slide/pinch together), zoom(index and thumb together and slide apart/"unpinch"). Great, just when I've finally mastered the one-handed power off and on the phone trick....Not. Why? Well, it was probably because it's one of those nearly use

HTC One 2014 Sense 6 Interface Demoed in Leaked Video


Tuesday 18th of March 2014 / android.gs
The All New HTC One will be officially unveiled by the Taiwan-based phone maker next week and the leaks continue to hit the web on a daily basis. After we’ve seen photos of the device from every angle and heard almost everything about its technical specifications, now it’s time to get a closer look at the Sense 6 interface that ships with HTC’s flagship smartphone for 2014.About a week ago an HTC One 2014 carrier brochure leaked online revealing that the HTC One sequel will have support for a double-tap to wake feature, which might be a reminiscent of the function debuted by Sony on the Xperia Tablet Z, and later used by LG on the likes of LG G2 or G Pro 2.The leaked Sense 6.0 video showing us that, besides the double-tap to wake feature we’ve learned about a week ago, HTC will also introduce more gestures for the lockscreen of the One 2014. While the phone is sleeping, in portrait orientation, if you swipe left you it opens the widget panel, if you swipe right it opens BlinkFeed, while a swipe up gesture unlocks the phone. If you hold the phone in portrait or
