I'm getting kinda fed up with iOS and the to do apps, I can't find a decent one that merges with the lock screen and sets reminders. I used clear which just suck, wunderlist is good but it's not free, any do which sucks on iOS, 30/30 which is confusing and tomorrow which only gives you a option for tomorrow lol.

Any other options or is it better on android?

what do you mean exactly?

You want to have task appear on the lock screen (aka lock screen widget).

I can think of maybe a few that can do that.

Why not just the Calendar/Reminders apps themselves? I don't personally find it any BETTER. I would say that the notifications on iOS are better.

Because to get them on the lock screen on Android, you either have to get something like WidgetLocker and put the widget on there, or you have to get 4.2, and then DashClock, then a todo app that uses the APIs to show it on the lock screen.

You don't have access to the notifications area when your device is locked. You're not supposed to anyway.


The calendar is the only one that actually shows up on the lock screen.
