    So, you can customize what kind of lock screen you want. I chose Productivity Lock Screen thinking it would show my texts, emails, missed calls, etc... all on my lockscreen if I had any.

    I applied it, and everything is set... but I'm not getting any notifications to show up on it. Odd....?

    I think the way you set it up is you first go to it in options then click the "settings" button with it selected, and that gives you the option to set which things you want to show up on the lock screen.

    So the launcher for the apps on my lock screen isn't working for some reason. I can drag the unlock button but the apps themselves don't move and it just registers as an unlock instead of opening the app I selected. I've restarted my phone and even shut it off a bit but no change. Is anyone else having this issue?

    I typically use the 'No Lock Screen' option, but, I tried out all of them & had no problem unlocking &/or going straight to open each app from the lock screen.

    Have you tried clearing all the data/defaults from the lock screen app?

    No I haven't but I'll have to give it a shot.

    Figured it out gentlemen, halo notifications app. Oddly it worked for a day and a half just fine then started giving me bugs today. No updates or anything, just decided it has had enough I guess.

    I am having an issue with the Productivity lock screen setting. Whenever I have music playing (the Music or Play Music apps in the drawer) the lock screen previews (such as texts, calendar, missed calls, etc.) no longer work. The lock screen shows just the mini player at the bottom and the time / weather right above that.

    Anyone else having this issue? All the other times, the lock screen displays message previews, but when music is playing it doesn't show previews anymore.

    ***NOTE: I am running Nova, rather than stock. Also, I am with AT&T (if that makes any difference)

    Anyone have any ideas?

    This is normal for your settings. If you don't like this, you can try to turn off the lock screen mini player in the music and play music apps.

    It would be nice if they integrated better.

    Thanks, how? I'm looking at the settings in both apps and there isn't a way to turn off the music player on the lock screen.

    Edit: I found a work around. I just dl'ed Winamp and disabled Google Play Music.

    Thank ya though

    Edit: Follow up

    Can we revisit this topic. Winamp is having trouble playing through my bluetooth. I disabled Google Play app but it wont let me disable the Music app. So I'm stuck with Music. So, anyway to disable the lock screen mini player? Ive scoured through the app and found no setting to turn off.
