In Pictures: Android lock screen widgets, 20 excellent options

Android 4.2 lets you put widgets on your lock screen -- so which apps make the most of the feature?

Tiny Flashlight + LED

A smartphone can save the day when you suddenly find yourself in the dark. The Tiny Flashlight + LED app is perfect for such occasions: It provides a variety of lock screen widgets to turn your phone's flash onto its brightest setting with a single tap.

Once you're past the lock screen, the Tiny Flashlight app supports a variety of different light patterns and styles. In my tests, however, its lock screen widgets all performed just the same basic on-and-off function; the only noticeable difference was in the style of the on-screen buttons.

Tiny Flashlight + LED is available for free in the Google Play Store.
