Omniscience Widget Beta for Android

XDA member seydhe presents this widget for your Android device. Omniscience will let you test all the widgets included such as Calendars, Tasks, Weather, Emails, Notes, and more. For now it supports applications such as Google Calendar, GMail, Astrid, Facebook and Springpad, as well as a few others. This currently works on Android 2.1 and up and the developer plans to have a lite free version with Google Calendar only once the beta stage is final. So, step in and try the full open beta now.

Highly configurable
A nice tutorial for beginners
Templates to recreate your favorite configuration quickly with automatic backup in the cloud
