Got Room for One More Clock?
XDA Member xaffron released this little widget app called “One More Clock”. The app is a clock widget with 5 different themes. From a quick glance at the images, the app looks aesthetically appealing. The five themes you can choose from are (as quoted from the post):
1. Bokeh Beauty : Lens flare that moves with the time of day (yes, I know the diff. between bokeh and flare, but flare isn’t catchy enough)
2. Culture Clash : My favorite – Glyph in the background represents the hour of day in Chinese.
3. Digital Digits : Mimics a classic LCD alarm clock (indiglo anyone?).
4. Lockscreen Look: Standard, clockopia widget on 2.0+ phones, otherwise defaults to droid sans.
5. Wham!Bam!Widget: A comic take… complete with smart alecky comments!
The app is available for download from the post and may only be free until it goes on the market, so go give it a test run on your Android device!

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
