Let Your Imagination Fly–Create Your Own Custom Clock Widget
So, your creative and artistic side is itching and telling you that the clock widget on your home screen absolutely sucks and that your device deserves much better. Ideas start flowing out and eventually, you will think of that one clock design that will make you want to stare at your device home screen just admiring how cool of a creation you can come up with.
The only problem is, you have no idea about how to actually create a clock widget, let alone make one that you literally just thought about (and likely does not exist). If you are feeling this way, then you should definitely check out the app created by XDA Forum Member vineetksirohi. Ultimate Custom Clock Widget or UCCW is an app that will allow you to create a custom clock in minutes, thus satisfying your OCD’s every whim regarding aesthetics.
The app is very flexible and will enable anyone to create analog, digital, hybrid clocks, and much more. You could potentially come up with a new concept never before seen on mobile devices. The original thread is loaded with examples and uccw files which can be applied to the app itself (analogous to skins). The dev has even gone ahead and added a video tutorial on how to use this and get your new shinny clocks in no time.
Take your time and create something unique, and please share it with the rest of the people currently using the app. Also, comments for the dev are always welcome.
Make custom clocks the easier way.
Best custom clock app for both digital and analog.
