Not sure what the lock screen has to do with AquaMail. I push the counts to Apex, and where they're used is up to them.

You might want to consult the developers of Apex, but as far as I know, the lock screen is a separate piece of "real estate", and can only be accessed in a documented way since Android 4.2.

So if you have 4.2+, consider installing DashClock widget (free in Google Play), and grabbing a recent development build of AquaMail from this forum (support added a while ago, but not released to Play yet).

For earlier Android versions, consider Nova Launcher + Tesla Unread, which use various undocumented hacks to add themselves to the lock screen. My app has native support for this combo, too.

When my Galaxy S3 is lock, the Aqua Mail icon is the bottom of the screen.

When I get email, I get the indicator light, the sound notification....

I hit the HOME button at bottom, the lock screen comes up, but there is NO indication of a new email.

However, when I swipe the screen to unlock, there is the AquaMail Icon and a new notification of new email.

How come not on both???

Thank you

Because the unread count overlay is not a standard Android feature.

My app works with Apex and Nova, by sending its unread counts into these launchers.

What they do with the unread count -- where they draw it, how they draw it -- is up to those launchers.

Please direct your question at the developers of Apex / Nova.
