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?

1Weather

When it comes to straightforward weather apps, 1Weather is a class act. It provides two simple and interesting lock screen widget options: The "classic" weather widget shows current weather conditions for your area in an eye-catching circular design, while the curiously named "compact" weather widget displays detailed weather info in a rectangle -- and to our eyes looks more traditional and less compact than the "classic" design.

Both widgets are customizable, with settings to configure things like the accent color, background color and what city is used for the data.

1Weather is available for free in the Google Play Store.
