NOTE: The widget does not work on built-in Android lock screen until Android 4.2.
With Owner Info widget you offer the person who finds the lost phone an easy way to return it to you.
Another important use is to inform people how they can help you if you appear in unconscious state due to disease or accident. You can include basic medical and treatment information to the scope of information that you provide to other people.
Owner Info widget resembles Owner Information item of Today screen in Windows Mobile, and provides additional functionality, such as possibility to take certain actions.
You specify owner information by tapping on the widget after you add it for the first time. After that configuration dialog can be opened via application list (Set Owner Information).
Tap on widget text opens Details window with detailed information and action buttons (Call phone, Send SMS, Send e-mail).
Tap on widget button executes default action (you choose the action in Settings).
The widget does not work on default Android lock screen. If you use a pin-protected lock screen, use Widget Locker application or alternatives to have widgets on the lock screen.
If the widget doesn't work for you, visit the homepage to submit an issue report instead of leaving comments (which are useless in solving problems).
Required permissions are needed to place a direct call or send SMS when the device is locked (and the widget is invoked from WidgetLocker).
