    Is there any app that can show Quick or Detailed Status on Lock Screen? I'm using Windows Phone 8.
    I am looking for perhaps Weather, other social networking apps. Currently, I only have: Calendar, Facebook, Hotmail, Messaging, Phone that can do that.
    I wonder if this capability is limited by the OS, or the apps developer forgot to include this as one of the features.

    For example: I use WeChat, but if someone text me and I wasn't aware at first, then I turn on the phone and check the Lock Screen, I won't be able to see that someone has text me on WeChat. As there is no notification on the Lock Screen.

    Lockmix is ace - really nice weather bit. Doesnt use the detailed status however for calendar. Also, bing image is US only, not UK
    Awesome Lock - similar, no detailed status
    Today Widgets - nope, again, not detailed status

    They're all good, but more clutter things than improve

    Lockmix is by far my favorite weather version of this - is there another app with similar weather (maybe just weather) that can use the bing wallpaper?

    I've given up on finding a calendar app that works as i want it to

    Please let me renew this thread. Is there an app or way to make WP8 phone show ALL Calendar events on Lock Screen / as Quick status?

    There's no problem in showing this for things such as Meetings, but I haven't seen a way to get Outlook Tasks up there, which do show up in Calendar, but not in Quick view mode on Lock Screen. Is this possible at all?
