Get the Time in Your Language with TypoClock for Android

XDA member Semicuda got pretty aggravated about the fact that Android has localization features (makes the device aware of its location world wide) and the fact that the clock widget will display time and date in English only. Non-native English speakers probably find this a bit annoying, so the dev decided to do something about it. TypoClock is a time/date widget that will display the contents in different languages. The widget also presents a rather minimalistic look and feel.

If you feel like taking this for a spin, make sure that you get back to the dev with some suggestions after trying it.

Hey everyone,

in reply to vaughnhcky89’s request here I started developing a widget.

As more and more people are requesting a separate thread for this, here it is!

Since HTC screwed up the runtime used in Sense-ROMs, the widget will display the day and month names in English only! On AOSP ROMs, the localized name will be shown.

You can find more information in the application thread.
