DashClock is a home screen clock widget for Android 4.2+ phones and tablets, with lock screen support for Android 4.2-4.4. It also exposes additional status items called extensions. The widget comes bundled with extensions that give you instant access to:

• Your current local weather
• Missed calls and unread text messages
• Your next calendar appointment
• Unread Gmail inbox or priority inbox conversations
• Your next scheduled alarm

To add the widget to your Android 4.2 device's lock screen, first make sure that "Enable widgets" is turned on in your security settings. Then, simply swipe to the left-most page of your lock screen and touch the "+" icon. Finally, select "DashClock" to customize and add the widget. You can make this the primary lock screen widget, replacing the default clock, by first touching-and-holding it and then dragging it horizontally to the very rightmost position.

Developers: DashClock is extensible! Visit the open source project at https://github.com/romannurik/dashclock to learn more or just check out the source.

    It was a great app when it was mantained and is still a good app (for what it works). Hope a fork will find it's way. Later edit: Or what if this ap was evolved to a full featured lockscreen replacement? I searched a lot about the ability to add widgets to the lockscreen on Android Lollipop and up but so far the solutions were inferior to what was found in KitKat and previously. Wouldn't there be a solution to turn this app into a fully fledged lockscreen replacement? Hope a good heart developer will read this and make this wish come true 😂😂 Full Review

    The home screen widget has stopped counting unread text messages of recent. Seems to be since google updated their SMS app. I've tried to email the developer about this but received an automated reply with links to report bugs. Said bug reporting link is apparently dead as it didn't load so I'm dropping my rating of this once favourite app Full Review

    I can't figure out how to get this to work properly on my Galaxy S7 running Marshmallow. The instructions (swipe to the left-most lock screen...) just aren't applicable; if I enable the lock screen and swipe, I get a keypad and a prompt to enter my pin. All I wanted was to see the time at night while my phone was charging. I used to have that functionality with DockClock Plus, but that app doesn't work under Marshmallow. If anyone can point me to instructions as to how to properly enable this app under Marshmallow, please respond. (Well... you can't really respond, but you could post a new review...) Addendum: If you send an email to the developer, you get an automated response directing you to a website that no longer exists. (404 error) Not a good sign. Full Review

    Dos relojes Buenas, la sería de 10 para mi salvo por una pequeña tonteria que a mi me mata... Cuando tengo el widget del reloj en la pantalla, no necesito en reloj pequeño de la barra superior y con esta App. Aparecen los dos. Tengo un xiaomi Redmi note 3, y el widget clock de fábrica detecta que está el widget y oculta el reloj de la barra superior. Por lo demás una App estupenda. Full Review

    Hi Roman, I wanted to have a list from wunderlist in the lock screen of my marshmallow android phone, but I can only see it working in the home page screens. I can´t see it working on the lock screen.. no matter how I try. I even tried installing the "Better Dashlock Widget" app, that apparently I should pay in 24 hours. But still does not work. What should I do to have it working? please help and I will be happy to give you a good rating. Thanks Full Review

    I'd like to thank you for a few years of good service with this app. However, the weather feature hasn't worked for a very long time, and the newest version that was supposed to fix it didn't. Considering the only thing functional now is the clock, I'm having to say goodbye. Full Review

    STILL no weather available!!!!!!!!!! I love this app, have used the widget for years now on many different android devices, and have NEVER had any problems with it at all, until recently... -The weather extension has stopped showing any info, just says unavailable instead... When I click on the link it still takes me to the correct place, but that's it. Full Review

    The UI is bare bones basic with no customization options. The weather widget doesn't work at all, and you have to have a second widget on your home screen to configure the first widget? Just really disappointing and clunky. Installed Chronus instead and it's 100x better. Full Review

    Great but would love a few small tweaks Any way to edit the font size for the extensions like weather, battery info, etc. I like keeping a minimalist home screen with small lettering and this just looks bulky. Would be happy to give 5 stars if this is possible. Full Review

    Its ok I use the other widgets without the clock. But does not count my mail. Maybe because I use blue mail as my default mail app. Another annoying thing is the color. Its not white, it's grey and not very visible. One more star if we get option to use color codes. Full Review

    Great idea behind this! Having a widget that allows several apps to have access to the widget, therefore all displaying in one place is such a useful idea. It's a shame that more apps than are currently available can't display on the widget. Suppose the app dev can't be blamed for that though. Full Review

    Love the widget. The text message notification doesn't seem to support Google messenger well on my V20. It'll said message unread and open the stock LG app after I read a text in messenger. The weather doesn't update correctly. The alarm shows up correctly but won't open the stock LG clock app. Full Review

    This app is promising, but it lacks the ability to customise the clock which looks ugly. I had installed it so I can have the Fitbit app on my lock screen, but the Fitbit extension doesn't work, and this feature was my main reason for installing this app. I also couldn't see a way to add it to my lock screen. I'm about to uninstall immediately after hitting send. Full Review

    Weather never works. And if I can actually find an app that dashclock can use for weather (eye in the sky and amber weather) , it won't update. Just stays on the last temp that I manually updated. Full Review

    Love everything about this besides the recent functionality loss with the stock Messenger app (Nexus 5x). API must have changed, as message counts don't clear unless you delete the text message. Full Review

    Used to LOVE DashClock, but it's pretty useless now. Battery extension doesn't work, weather extension worked for a good 3 days. I'm not sure the developer is even actively looking out for the app. Full Review

    Meh not really much but still good when it gives me the time. Nah I won't say anything special about this, but it's good and I won't get carried away about it. Just let me say this is a semi-great widget and we'll leave it at that. Full Review

    The app does what it says and does it well. Though the weather interface needs a little work. I would love it more if you didn't depend on location and GPS. As we all know those Services drain the battery when turned on and you should be able to Simply tell it what city you want the weather for. Full Review

    Practically Perfect The only thing I find really lacking are the colour/theme variations. If it were possible to chose a custom colour (via colour wheel) for the time and extension fonts it would definitely get 5 stars. The black and white are nice but as my lock screen wallpaper changes with each lock/rotation I often have trouble seeing the white on light backgrounds or the black on certain dark ones. Though It's not annoying enough for me to look for a different app. Full Review

    I love the concept but doesn't seem to work on any Samsung Galaxy devices, at least not with the instructions provided. Please either state this in the description or provide instructions that do work. Samsung has the largest market share of Android phones, so it should at least be mentioned if there's no support.

    Just one bug...or is it? When i apply the widget for the first time or whenever it disappear from the home screen on my marshmallow device for some reason,the widget does not appear or seems to be not working the first time you apply it.Going back to dashclock setting and reapplying the widget solves the problem. Still a great widget and I hope the dev look into this matter...will NOT uninstall because I love this app :> Full Review
