Make Your LiveView Look Like an Actual Watch with Live Watches
Posted April 28, 2011 at 03:00 pm by egzthunder1
If you have never seen Sony Ericsson’s LiveView, you are probably missing a nice little gadget. This is a watch looking device that connects to other Android devices via BT in order to give you status updates on recent calls, e-mails, MMS, SMS, and so much more. Basically, it allows you to preview your phone without actually looking at it. The only problem is that it is missing a key aspect of anything that resembles a wrist watch, and that is the analog watch itself!! Thanks to XDA member cyansmoker, this is no longer an issue. The dev decided that since there wasn’t any plugin readily available for this type of functionality, he figured that he would look into the SDK for the device and work one out from scratch. The plugin is fully skinnable, which means that you can sport a different watch everyday if you want to by using one of the pre-made skins or even by making your own.
Please give it a go and leave some feedback for the dev if you enjoy his work.
Anyway, I was flabbergasted when I realized that there isn’t any straightforward “watch” plug-in for the LiveView so in a couple hours I figured out how to use the SDK and created one.
