    I am googled and searched and all i keep finding is apps that will go onto the lock screen.

    I am looking to put Beautiful Widgets on the lock screen without having to put an app to edit the lock screen.

    I swore i read somewhere and seen it on a picture, but I don't know how to do it.

    Is it a setting that i am missing or a launcher or something.

    Any help would be great, like i said, I have been looking for a little over 2 weeks and can't find anything but Fly Screen and Lock Widget locker or something.

    Both of those are great programs, but not what i am looking for.

    Thanks nader2013 for your reply, but i am not looking for an app to change anything on my screen, i tried that app and didnt care for it.

    i hear and read about music apps that have something that will show up on the lock screen and i am seeing if that is possible with beautiful widget

    That is not possible. Cyanogen Custom roms have a feature to put music controls on the lock screen but that is added to a rom via source.

    Some music players create a replacement lock screens (or cover the existing lock screen) while music is being played. Some of these are well integrated like the ones built into Sense or similar. But these are not adding something to the system lock screen. It's a completely different screen.

    It might be possible for an app to put an overlay on top of the lock screen that covered only a small part of it. But it'd be tricky to get it to layer right and disappear at the right time.

    If there's something specific about WidgetLocker that bugs you I'd be happy to answer questions or hear out feature requests.

    Kevin, no your app is great, the only thing that i wasn't a fan of, was the fact that the notification bar was still able to be accessed and that the hard buttons were just able to be used.

    Other wise it was spot on and i loved it.

    you can hide the notification bar as well as disable a lot of features. as far as the music app it replaces the lock screen not adds to it. widgetlocker is you best bet since BW can not go on the native lockscreen you need to replace the lockscreen with and app like WL.
