By now, there have been at least a few hundred apps that have been updated for iOS 8 with dozens of them including the iOS widget feature. You may have noticed some of your productivity apps touting their ability to be seen at a glance in Notification Center. However, if you don’t add them, you won’t see them. We’ve got a quick tutorial to help you get those widgets onto your lock screen so you can perform actions with your apps without having to open them.
The widgets allow third-party apps to send content to Notification Center in iOS 8. Users can then pull down from the topmost portion of the screen to see what is going on in Today view, and even interact with some apps. For example, Wunderlist allows users to check off tasks that were listed in the to-do widget.
All apps that have been updated with the feature are already sitting in the Today view of Notification Center. However, they are hidden until you manually add them to your list.
