Chronus: Home & Lock Widget

Chronus: Home & Lock Widget


PLEASE NOTE: On 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. It's unfortunately not possible to have both installed at the same time. This is because of a change Google made to the permissions system in L. There is no workaround at this time.

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!

- Fully functional Flex, Flex (Analog), Clock+, Clock+ (Dash), Dash and Weather Widgets

Great App but.... Since the latest update I no longer get the stock calendar events on the flex widget. I have to add the calendar extension, which I'd rather not do
