CyanogenMod Introduces Highly Requested Maximized Lockscreen Widget Option

Lockscreen widgets were introduced in the Android 4.2 update to the Nexus devices, and they work great on tablets. You turn on the screen, and you get a full widget at the top with multiple pages. However, it’s not so great on a phone. Turning on the screen shows you a 4×1 version of the widget, with the rest of the screen having the unlock gesture area. What if you want to be greeted with a full widget? It isn’t really possible on stock Android.

However, anything is possible if CyanogenMod has anything to do with it. They introduced a new feature to start the widgets maximized, so you will be greeted with all the information you want. It’s a useful option for some people, and it has now been merged into the latest nightly!
