    Adding Pandora widget to Pattern Lock

    Is there a way to add the Pandora widget to the Pattern Lock screen? I hate having to unlock my phone every time I want to skip a song.

    I have seen a music widget or even the phone/contacts/mail apps being accessed on the normal lockscreen before but I am not sure if I could do similar things on the pattern lock.

    Some soon to be FAQ about my request:
    Q: Why not just leave the screen on?
    A: Well I hate having it heating up and using the screen constantly.

    Q: Why use the pattern lock then?
    A: Because I have sneaky people around me and I don't want to have to turn off and on my lock...I might forget to turn it back on at some point.

    Have you checked out Widget Locker? I haven't, but it might be worth looking at.

    Hmm, I see that now....doesn't appear to work for the pattern lock but its a possible option....

    EDIT: Checked developer site for it....its states you can use pattern lock BUT: "When your phone wakes it will see WidgetLocker but if you try to leave WidgetLocker, by unlocking or opening a program, you will be prompted for the pattern..... That should mean that widgets will work fine but just not opening of applications...anyone have this program that can test this?

    Are you rooted? Because simply stunning 4.7 has a feature you can turn on so you can skip songs with the screen off by holding the volume button.

    Definitely am rooted but using Lithmod and loving it. I wonder if there is a way I can hack that option in...or even utilize the camera button to skip forward would be fine for me... hmmm.

    EDIT: okay, so I tried out WidgetLocker and it wasn't working for the Pandora widget...its a great app but unfortunately that was the only real functionality I wanted on my lockscreen.
