    I'd like to be able to add tasks somewhere in my note 3 by using a voice activated input on the lock screen. I used his a lot with my iphone, just saying "add coffee to my note groceries", and siri would add it. Is there any way to do this on amdroid?

    If you had a Moto X you probably could, using the Touchless control. Not sure if S-Voice does that..

    I know you can put a Google Keep widget on your lock screen and click a toggle to record or do whatever. Not really as helpful for Google Now commands, but that actually sounds like a cool feature. I wonder if there's a widget out there that does exactly this.

    Just a heads up that you can put Google Now on your home screen, but it doesn't offer any commands, just displays the Google Now info that you'd normally see.

    You can probably do this with something like Tasker, but I'm not sure. Don't know if it would require root either.
