Simple Home and Lock Screen Color Clock Widget

Recently, we took a quick look at the CyanogenMod Lock Screen Clock cLock. Developed by XDA Recognized Developer (and CyanogenMod UI and Experience Team Developer) DvTonder, cLock delivers a highly customizable and informative clock widget that can be used on your home screen or lock screen (or both). However, not everyone needs so much information in a clock widget. Furthermore, not everyone is running Android 4.2, which is a requirement to run cLock.

So what do you do if you if you’re still on the prowl for a simple and customizable clock widget for your home screen and lock screen? For starters, you can check out Color Clock by XDA Forum Member Eric_Eric_Eric. Now, when I say simple, I mean simple. Eric’s offering displays the time, and that’s all it does. It features a digital readout of the time, and the color can be customized to your liking. It also supports transparency in the selectable color.

While obviously not for everyone, those looking for a simple clock widget should take a look at Color Clock. Those wishing to get started can get the goods over in the application thread. If you wish to build upon Eric’s work, head over to his Github and fork some source.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
