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?


We've all been there: A song starts playing in your car, and you can't for the life of you figure out who sings it. SoundHound makes that problem a thing of the past: Just tap the app's lock screen widget and -- within seconds -- it'll identify the tune and tell you the details.

While Google has its own basic Sound Search widget built into Android 4.2, SoundHound packs some additional features. The program can recognize your own singing or humming as well as actual recorded music, for example; it also offers a live streaming lyric display to go along with any playing song.

SoundHound costs $5.99.
