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 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.

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

Recent changes:

best I have found And I have used 100s! Really useful. Would like more widgets and extensions, even though there are loads already! The one weird thing that is missing, is you cant choose to tap somewhere on the widget and it goes to the Chronus app itself?? now you cant have extensions whatever you do??

Crashes and goes blank Ever since the new security update that forced me to install DashClock, the widgets using that service have been crashing and going blank.

Incompatible Edit: I'm running Android 4.1.2 When I start up the app it prompts me to download Dash clock, but Google Play says it isn't compatible with my device.
