Are you the iPhone user who loves to tinker things and be different from others? Well, this list down below by imore.com can help you with that. It has the best lock screen widget for your iOS 10 device. Check it out down below:

Fantastical 2

Fantastical 2

Apple may have added a cool widget to the Calendar app called Up Next, but I still prefer the way the Fantastical 2 widget looks on my Lock screen. It shows your next upcoming event or reminder, with the scheduled time, and also notes if there is anything else going on within a four-hour timeframe. If you have a reminder set, you can tap it to check it off your list right from the Lock screen, without having to open the app. If a reminder is overdue, you’ll see a big, red “overdue” message in the widget, so you’ll be haunted by it until you finish the task.

If you have a busy life, the Fantastical 2 widget is great for keeping you on-task and reminding you of events in your near future.

Day One Journal

Day One Journal

The best way to secure your memories forever is by taking a daily account of your activities and the Day One Journal app is the best for cross-platform, secure journaling. The iPhone and iPad widget features three different actions. You can quickly check in from any location without having to open the app. You can see pictures from previous entries (randomly displayed), and when you tap on one, you will be taken directly to that specific entry. You can also see usage stats, which provides you with information about how many words you’ve written per day over the past 50 days. These widgets are all separate, so you can have one or all three, right on your Lock screen.

If you actively keep a daily journal, use the Today One widget to help keep you on track and let you seen what you’ve done in the past.

ESPN

ESPN

Sports fans will love the new look of the ESPN Lock screen widget in iOS 10. When you save your favorite teams in the app, you’ll get quick access to current scores without having to unlock your screen. So, if you’re at a meeting, out to dinner, or trying to pay attention to the real world around you, even though you’re dying to find out who is winning the World Series, you can take a peek at the score without missing a beat (that doesn’t mean you should use it while driving, though).

Sports fans should definitely add the ESPN widget to their Lock screen, even if they don’t have a subscription to the network. Quick access to the game’s score is invaluable.

Launcher

Launcher

Before you decide to complain about how Launcher can’t access settings actions anymore, let me just say that it is still a fantastic widget for launching apps, creating playlists, and visiting websites directly. When you add a launcher shortcut to the widget, you can jump directly to it from the Lock screen. My favorite? Being able to add specific types of communications to my contacts. I like to FaceTime with my mom, Skype with Rene, and use Facebook Messenger to chat with bandmates. Launcher lets you set up an individual communication for individual contacts, which you can quickly jump to by tapping it on the Lock screen. It’s fast and easy to set up.

If you have a lot of apps on your device, but only open a handful of them on a regular basis, Launcher makes it easier to get where you need to go without having to flip through your multiple screens.

Dark Sky

Dark Sky

When it comes to accuracy, Dark Sky is almost magical in its ability to forecast the weather. The Lock screen widget shows the day’s highs and lows, plus the chance of rain and what the sky looks like for the next hour. It is perfect during the rainy (or snowy) season. If there is a chance of rain, you’ll know before you leave the house. That way, you won’t unnecessarily bring an umbrella or leave your raincoat behind when you need it the most.

If you live in a location where the weather changes multiple times per day, the Dark Sky widget will keep you from getting wet.

Workflow

Workflow

Workflow is a robust formula (or recipe) app that lets you perform a series of tasks that are triggered by a specific activity. For example, you can upload screenshots to Dropbox with a single tap or search Google for the lyrics to a song you are currently listening to. The Lock screen widget makes it possible for you to quickly access your favorite Workflow recipes at a glance. You can use dictation to create a note, quickly destroy all clipboard copy data, and play your favorite playlist, all with a single tap.

To increase productivity for the activities you perform the most on your iPhone or iPad, get Workflow and set recipes (or formulas) as Lock screen widgets for easy access.
