Draw Your Own Clock Widget with DrawTime
Widgets are some of the most useful staples of our Android home screens. They’re also perhaps the biggest differentiation we have to set our devices apart from the generic grid of icons found on iDevices. Widgets come in all shapes and sizes, and there are options to handle pretty much every task imaginable.
Since most of us use widgets to personalize our home screens, wouldn’t it be nice to have a widget that’s a bit more one of a kind than something that can also be installed by every other Android user? With XDA Senior Member newHere:)‘s app DrawTime, you can now create your own one-of-a-kind clock widget.
Using DrawTime is quite simple. You start off by drawing a set of template numbers. These can be any shape and color of your choosing, and you can even use multiple colors per template number. Next, you configure your clock by choosing what application is launched when tapping the widget, as well as how you would like your clock to be displayed. Finally, you add your widget, and you’re good to go with a truly unique widget that is sure to set your home screen apart from every other Android device.
If you want that last bit of personalized flair on your home screen, head over to the application thread and give DrawTime a shot.

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
