BITS™ Widget Pro


BITS Pro is a DIY home screen widget creator with a WYSIWYG editor that allows you to make your own multi-functional widgets. You can add, remove, edit, arrange, re-size and color bits of information on the widget face. Each bit can be set to launch any shortcut when touched.

All features are permanently enabled in this Pro version of BITS Widget:
- Unlimited bits per widget
- Set location from GPS or manually lock it to a specific place
- Unlimited widgets each with a unique location
- Show time and weather for multiple locations
- Save and restore layouts
- Tasker integration (show variables, trigger refresh)
- Resize home screen cells
- Enable or disable any size widget from 1x1 to 4x4
- Launch any shortcut from any bit
- Use graphics from SD card as a bit

Create a widget that shows the time, date and current weather conditions and then assign shortcuts so that touching the time opens a clock app, touching the date opens a calendar app, and touching the weather opens up a weather app. Or, load a photograph from the SD card and assign a shortcut so that touching that photo automatically calls that person, sends a text message, or opens that person’s phone book record.

BITS Pro is also completely integrated with Tasker, with the ability to show the value of any variable in Tasker and to have Tasker trigger on-screen updates.

Each widget created with BITS Pro can show information from a unique location which can be set using GPS or manually locked to a single location. One widget can show time and weather where you are while another shows the time and weather "back home" or somewhere else.

Thanks Not only is it customizable, it actually has wind speed & direction w/a transparent background to boot. Only request I have for next update is wind chill factor, or (feels like).

Good idea if it was accurate It's a juvenile program that requires a few more iterations before it's really ready.

Needs a few more visual tweaks This app is a brilliant app but id like to be able to angle the clock and any text, also possibly make text look block formed for a 3d visual effect. The only thing i do dislike is the rain effect for the weather as it looks naff but that said i highly recommend this app as its easy to use and almost limitless
