hi, just bought new Intex Jolla C phone, its nice and smooth, great experience. But one request to app developers out there, cant we access any particular app without unlocking of phone, like financial stock market ticker apps which we would like to see without any need of unlocking... it would help a lot. overall very happy with new experience.

I'm affraid official applications from harbour cannnot bypass the lockscreen, SailfishOS seems to offer no 'restricted features only API'. But applications from Openrepos are not restricted, a good example is Lux which works fine in unlocked state.

Lux seems to be just a shell script and therefore bypass the regular rules. And using the flashlight is not a security issue.

yes its true, applications from harbour cannnot bypass the lockscreen (numeric key type) ...

no it does not work with numeric key lock. it only works with swipe lock option. looking for quick glance of a particular app without opening of number key lock.

Thanks for the feedback; so you would like something that opens up the app as soon as you put the screen on?

just like quickbar works in case of swipe lock, if we can open up an app without opening of numeric key lock, that would be great. See i want to lock my Jolla C with number key lock but at the same time would like to have a quick glance of business market ups & down in an app without unnecessary opening the phone again & again.

Okay, so what you are looking for is something like a widget which would show some updated stock info's, rather than opening the app per se...

yes stock share prices of few selected scripts during market hours

You can put any app in the lock screen pulley menu. Go to Settings > Lockscreen...
