    Hi All,

    My phone is password protected, so whenever I need to do something (check my grocery list, pause music) I have to enter password first which is annoying. Is it possible to allow some apps to work through password protection?

    Music player from audible somehow displays buttons on password protected screen but it seems to be working only with its own formats, I wonder if there is music player and/or note taking application with similar features?

    If you are running Jelly Bean you can add a number of widgets to your lockscreens

    Scroll all the way left to the + sign and you will be prompted to sign in. Then you will see clock, flashlight, email, gmail, keep, power widgets, etc. that can be added to the lockscreen. Note, I think that a lot of them are a security issue, as someone can scroll through your gmail or messages without unlocking your phone.

    This is exactly the solution I use. I only protect the apps that contain personal or financial information or that can be used to purchase things.
