Dashclock might just be one of the very best widgets to surface for Android 4.2+ devices, and that was before today’s update. Dashclock for those who are unaware is a fantastic little widget that you can place on either your homescreen or lock screen, and add custom plugins that display useful pieces of information like weather, Hangouts, SMS, Battery life, etc. There are already plenty of custom plug ins that one can install and add to the Dashclock base app by Roman Nurik, and the app was already worthy of being an award winner but the update to 1.6 today brings it even further with bux fixes to improve its performance, and even more customization options than before.
While there hasn’t been anything new going on with Dashclock in some time, rest assured that it’s still getting love from the developer. Version 1.6 brings the bux fixes to weather plugins so the information compiles more smoothly and is more reliable, and you should notice that the SMS and Gmail plugins work in a more improved state than before as well. Other than the fixes, there is a small list of changes that took place in this update. You’ll find new visibility and color customization tweaks available to you, so if you’re someone that likes to mess with the color scheme a little this is undoubtedly a welcome new feature for you(Although you do only get the option for white or black, so it doesn’t get too crazy). Color customization isn’t the only aesthetic change though, as new visual design tweaks have been added in as well. Lastly it looks like users of Dashclock will be getting some new options for accessing their settings within Dashclock. This wasn’t terribly hard to do before, but it did need an improvement and we’re all for it if it means easier access.What do you guys/girls out there think about Dashclock?
