Plume updated with Android 4.2 lock screen widget

One of the leading Twitter apps in the Play Store, Plume, is joining the small list of apps that have been updated to work with Android 4.2's lock screen widget functionality. In this latest update -- version 4.70 -- users can add the regular Plume widget to the lock screen, with full support for scrolling, buttons and responses. It looks and acts exactly as the home screen version does. These kinds of widgets are actually one of the few that may actually be considered useful on the lock screen, and we're glad they've chosen to incorporate it.

There are a group of quick fixes as part of the update as well, including fixes for DM (direct message) display, issues with the Facebook timeline not loading and unread list items appearing multiple times. If you're interested in trying out a Twitter client with lock screen widgets, take a look at Plume via the Google Play Store link above.
