    Hey all, I am in need of a little help. I am a truck driver and I have the ICE App but with my phone locked, if something was to happen to me nobody would be able to open the app. I am looking for a basic app that will allow me to put this app on my lock screen to be accessible. I have looked at Widget Locker, looks good but does way more than what I want, plus I was looking for a free app. I am also looking for a good owner info app that I can have displayed on my lock screen, rarely would I lose or leave my phone someplace as it is literally a extension of my hand, but just in case!

    Thanks for your responses.

    im thinking widgetlocker is your best bet...OR...you can download "lookout" and set up a quick account. its all free. then if you lose your phone you can: locate it, wipe data, or make it ring (even if on silent). The only downside to the locate feature is you, obviously, have to keep your GPS on. which i always thought would destroy your battery...but after keeping it on for this app the past week....hasnt hurt my battery much at all. i would try it though!

    ICE has the ability to be your lock screen. The ICE is shown on the top 1/3 of the screen and you can add a message (I added a contact message in case I lose my phone).

    Start ICE> Menu > Settings
    Select "Show on lock screen"
    in "Owner Information" add your message

    I have had lookout before, I might try it again. It seemed to drain my battery, so I uninstalled it.

    @ bob...I don't have that option on my DInc ICE App to display on the lock screen, odd that I dont.
