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?

Big News Pro

For a less minimalist approach to news browsing, grab Big News Pro. The app connects to your Google Reader account and gives you a large scrolling look at the latest headlines from your feeds. Expanding the widget lets you see story synopses and images, too -- a nice touch that really pops on the lock screen.

Big News Pro has several customization options, including a choice of a light or dark color scheme or a completely transparent background.

The app costs $1.29. There's also a free version available, but its widget is more limited and doesn't include image support.
