Default Access app without unlocking

I'm trying to find a way to be able to access a selected app or apps without having to unlock my phone with my with pin. I've tried looking, and all I can find is a lock screen app called Start, but it does way more than i need and it still asks for my pin when I select app.

You could use custom ockscreen shortcuts (or a lockscreen replacement) coupled with Secure Settings & Tasker to achieve that.

Example:

I was hoping for something a bit simpler, but I'll give this one a shot. Hopefully this works with pin unlock and but just pattern unlock.
