Review: Beautiful Widgets, Best Looking App on Android

April 30, 2010 - Written By Mike Corbett

Description:

Its an app that lets you can view weather, time, date and adjust numerous features that you use

Features:

  • Nice looking clock with 12/24 hours support
  • Multiple layouts and skins support
  • Weather with realistic icons
  • Celcius and fahrenheit temperature
  • Automatic language detection
  • Geolocation for the weather city, or the ability to enter the city name
  • Automatic sunset/sunrise calculation
  • High res graphics for WVGA Devices (such as the Motorola Droid or Nexus One)
  • 1×1 beautiful Wifi/Bluetooth/Plane mode/Silent/Vibrate widgets to easily enable or disable them
  • 1×1 GPS widget that act as shortcut to enable or disable location in the settings.

How it works: Long press to put any widget your home screen and just tap them for different functions. Simple and awesome

This app makes it very easy to turn on and off things you use every day namely: wifi, gps, blue tooth, brightness (nice for dark areas), plane mode, silent, and vibrate. I use those features a bit, but what I use most is beautiful home, and smaller home. Both have time, weather and the date. If you like cool things, this is the best app, I see it recommended by tons of people all of the time. The weather animations rock, amazes and impresses people all the time. Like for example, if you tap the weather area of the app and if it is raining, it shows rain following down the screen and dropping against the inside of the screen, during the winter, if its snowing, snow falls and piles up against the bottom of the screen. The most boring, but still very cool is sunny weather, it does nothing but show a bright big sun! Night is the coolest, full moon, it shows stars and a light coming from the back ground, its the closest to HTC widgets you can get for your phone.

The level of customization is awesome, the skins are really cool, I have a naked skin so it is a clean looking clock and looks smooth on my droid. Plus there was a color customizing function just added, the text on my home widget matches my phones color, red. I mentioned that earlier, and its not just choose red, choose green, you can get any color you want because there is a color pallet. All of the other widgets rock and help a lot, but really home and smaller home is the main reason to buy this app if you ask me, its AWESOME and a daily app for me. With the widget, you can view the weather, view the time, view the date and the temperature, plus by tapping each of them you can view other things such as the clock, animations and calender. Its really cool and makes it so you do not need additional widgets filling your home screen.

Pro:

  • The widgets rock
  • Weather widget is one of the best
  • Two styles of weather widget
  • Customization!
  • Easy to use
  • VERY useful

Cons

  • Could use a few more widgets
  • Not a free version

Conclusion: You really should get this, if nothing else get this, I see this app recommended daily. Its great, it tells weather, time, date and has many other uses! Just wow.
