May 19, 2014 - Written By Tom Dawson

Description: Digital Clock Widget is an Android app that offers a number of different clock widget designs, with a twist. It’s a simple and easy app to use on Android smartphones or tablets, but better suited to phones. The twist to the app is that there’s a simple bar that hangs below clock widgets enabling you quick and easy access to some key apps on your device. There are a number of different settings users can tweak and change as well, making Digital Clock Widget a good-looking and versatile widget.

How it Works: To get started, you’ll need to download Digital Clock Widget from the Play Store. From there, you’ll be given some hints on how to use the app and choose your clocks.

You can change to 24-hour format with a simple touch and you can customize your smart tools bar. This is the bar that sits below the clock widget and gives you quick access to four apps.

Opinion: The widget side of things is the Play Store is getting really crowded these days, but this is a good thing as there’s so much choice on offer. Digital Clock Widget might seem like another choice that isn’t worth your time, but I was pleasantly surprised by just how good an app Digital Clock Widget is. It’s got 15 different designs and the tool bar is a nice little twist that a lot of users will find genuinely useful. A fun and simple app that works well, Digital Clock Widget is one worth trying out.
