Your Network and Call Log on your DashClock

Nearly every Android Jellybean 4.2 user will be familiar with DashClock, the lock screen widget app that allow users to see  quite a bit of handy information upon quick glance. Pre-bundled with the widget comes your weather, missed calls and texts, Gmail, and your next calendar appointment. Now you can add your call log and network statistics to the list with DashCallLog and DashNet by XDA Forum Member apus2.

Both DashCallLog and DashNet are both extensions of the DashClock widget for Android 4.2. DashCallLog displays the call log of the phone and can be filtered to include the latest call, last incoming calls, outgoing calls, and calls you may have missed. Of each call, the call type (i.e. incoming, outgoing, missed), caller name, date and time, and duration will be displayed. Both the date format and individual call symbols can be personalized with multiple options available. Once selected, this opens up the call history.

DashNet is another handy DashClock extension that simply informs you of statistics regarding your network, be it WiFi or mobile connection. It’s an expandable widget that conveniently shows SSID, IP, and speed if you’re connected to WiFi. For mobile connections, the widget tells you your connection type (e.g. UMTS and GPRS) and operator name. Once tapped, the app displays a more extensive list of statistics such as signal strength, gateway, and network activity.

The open nature of DashClock allows for some pretty nifty and useful extensions to be developed by developers out there such as apus2’s DashCallLog and DashNet here. So if you would like to check them out, you can visit the application threads for DashCallLog and Dashnet.
