As other sailors already asked, i also would like to be able to have a more functional unlockscreen. I understood that implementing Widgets and other heavy things would take a lot of time an will not happen soon. Some Ideas were rejected because they violated the "vertical-scroll-dogma".

My idea should be faster to implement because much of the code is already in place and it is perfectly integratable to the UI concept.

Instead of having additional clickable buttons or areas to directly access apps/functions from the lockscreen, i would like to be able to do a selective swipe by pressing the already shown notifications, indicators and the clock before/while swiping.

UI wise, the only big change would be to arrange the notifications above the clock, to have enough space to swipe up.

So, e.g. swiping up while holding the clock should unlock and start the clock-app.
