New Version of BattClock Available
Do you have the feeling that your top bar in your WM device should tell you a bit more than just time, and maybe battery? A while back, XDA member ZuinigeRijder developed an app called BattClock, which basically allowed the top bar to have a bit more information than the default top bar. You can have anything ranging from amount of free ram, device status, different types of battery read outs, and more. The latest incarnation of this bar replacement addresses quite a few bugs and brings a couple of new features as well. For instance, CPU frequency can now be displayed for devices like the TP2 or the HD2.
This is highly skinnable and there are many already available for you to try. Please leave some feedback for the dev.
People kept asking for the BattClock only of TouchLockPro or StylusLock, for people not wanting the locking solution. Here it is, the Standalone BattClock.
In the mean time BattClock has been grown into a swiss knife for your taskbar, possible of showing a lot of usefull information.
You can find more information in the application thread.
