On the lockscreen swipe to the right (so you see the screen on the left). You will see a big "+" icon, just click on it. You will see the list of widgets you can add on the lockscreen. When you're done, you can delete the default clock widget, which removes that screen.

I don't have the ugly clock everyone is talking about and I didn't do anything to get rid of it. 😊

Maybe you don't have the 4.2 (Jelly Bean) update yet?

But the tea timer in the clock made it totally worth it to have the new clock.

Thanks, I knew about the "+" screen but the available widgets for my "+" screen (besides the ugly digital clock) are limited to Calendar, Gmail and Sound Search.

Perhaps HD Widgets (which you use) automatically installed themselves onto the lockscreen's widget drawer?

You have a small selection because developers need to update their apps before they show as a lock screen widget. HD widgets was one of the first to do so. And the widgets have to be manually added to the lock screen, they don't "magically" appear there

I've always thought the 7" and smaller was better for fourm because the keyboard are smaller and easier to type with. If one only reads then I can see the lager format being advantages.

The latest Nexus have ushered an era where the screen rez is as good or better than the iOS. By the time the mini gets renta so will most android devices.

I've read from numerous sources that the eye cannot detect difference past 300dpi.

What I've seen in most part ported apps just don't do a good job, this goes both ways. There are exceptions usually big companies and games.

What I have learned to find the equivalent leaders for each platform. Sometimes it's the same app sometimes they're not.

For instance blue fire the ePUB reader exists on both platforms is good on iOS but is horrid on Android. An equivalent product is Moon or Montano and they are far better than anything that exist on iOS.


What in recommend is Googleing, posting here, or in other forums asking for opinion on apps.
