Chronus: Home & Lock Widget

Chronus: Home & Lock Widget


PLEASE NOTE: Because of security policy changes in Lollipop you *must* uninstall DashClock or any app that defines the DashClock Extensions permission before you can install Chronus or you will get a -505 error. We are working on a solution and will release it soon. Thank you for your patience.

Welcome to Chronus, an elegant Home & Lock screen Clock, Weather, News feed and Calendar widget - now with DashClock Extensions support!

Functionally similar to its older brother the CyanogenMod cLock widget and brought to you by the same developers, this independently released, stand-alone widget brings the same elegant look and feel, enhanced with many new features and improvements, to the broader Android community.

As a flexible "Information" widget, Chronus is highly optimized in terms of CPU and data usage with the potential of replacing several other info widgets. Multiple Chronus widgets on the same device share the same back-end services and updates are batched. This makes the system use less battery while still providing the user with rich information. You can choose to use one or all of the features, those not used are completely disabled, using no CPU, data or battery.

Please note:
1) Details on the Permissions we use are available at http://goo.gl/EbMLmm
2) If you use the Xposed framework to bypass Android Widget API's, things will break!

Notifications are not pushed to Android Wear I don't get any Chronus notification or watchface weather on my LG G Watch R, and also no settings are changed to the watchface, no matter what I configure in the phone app.

Love Chronus I've used the app for a long time. Other than minor issues, there is a lot going for this app. The android wear support is great and the clock + dash will continue to be on my home screen for a long time. Keep up the good work!
