How to add widget to lock screen?

March 30, 2015 at 4:29 PMAdministrator

We just added the feature to allow users to add Chore Checklist widget to lock screen. It requires Android 4.2+.

Below is what it look like:


To add the widget to lock screen:

  1. Go to the lock screen.
  2. At the top of your screen, swipe from left to right. If the lock screen has no widgets yet, you'll see a new screen with a Plus icon. If the lock screen already has widget, you will need to swipe from top to bottom first and then left to right until you see a screen with a Plus icon. (You can long press current widget and drag to “X” to remove it)
  3. Touch the Plus icon . ...
  4. You'll see a list of widgets, including widgets for apps you've installed.
  5. Touch the Chore Checklist widget. It will prompt you to choose a list.

The widget is view-only. But you can click on “+” to open “quick add one-time chore” view or touch the widget to open the “Due Date View”.

Note: Some phones have issue loading the widget since we added the widget customization in v1.4.3(Full). If it happens, you may go to "Menu"->"More"->"Settings" to turn off widget customization. Unfortunately, you won't be able to change the widget style in that case.


On Android 1.5-2.3.7, this application has one widget in lite version and three different size widgets in full version.

New in 2.2.0: On Android 3.0+, this application provides a scrollable/resizable interactive widget for both lite and full version. User can check off chores and quickly add one-time chores from widget.

chorechecklist_screenshot4In Chore Checklist(Android), there are pre-set background colors for chores. Red is for chores overdue. Orange is for chores due today and tomorrow. Lime green is for chores which have been skipped more than twice. These colors help you to identify chores need to be addressed quickly.

You can customize them in paid version. Go to "Menu"->"More"->"Settings…"->"Settings" and find them under "Style". You can change to any color you like.

You can customize colors used in Widget as well. However, we ran into an issue with "Widget Customization" on certain devices. It would not load the widget if that option is turned on. In that case, you have to turn off "Widget Customization" in order to use widget and you have to use default colors.
