mWidget Beta – Text Clock, Date, Battery, Weather And More!

Fans of the popular mClock widget will be pleased to hear that XDA forum member knoxcoder has now released the first beta of mWidget, the new widget to replace mClock.

Features so far include:

  • Fully editable widget layout and properties
  • Export widget as a theme
  • Import theme (WIP)
  • Main launcher to edit and created widget (in apps folder)
  • Clock, date, battery, shapes
  • Custom fonts, colours, gradients, shadows, blur, autosize
  • Low battery usage (only updates when the screen is on)

Future developments listed by knoxcoder are Tap to launch, weather, complete theme support, and other languages.

The dev has requested some help with the widget icon, widget name and more, so head on over to the application thread to download the apk and give a helping hand.

I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
