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”.
