Chronus: Home & Lock Widget

Chronus: Home & Lock Widget


Welcome to Chronus, an elegant Home & Lock screen Clock, Weather, News feed and Calendar widget - now with Google Tasks 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:

2) If you use the Xposed framework to bypass Android Widget API's, things will break!

amazing Amazing app!! NOW IS PERFECT WITH SAMSUNG ALLIGNMENT AND SEPERATE REFRESH BUTTON!! So you can tap on refresh and actually refresh the widget and then tap on the widget's icon and launch a weather app! Can you add this function to the other alignments also?! Also, add the ability for the widget to take weather data from a third party weather app instead of API. Also add a feature of a show/hide settings button on the widgets themselves for immediate access to settings. THANK YOU!
