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.

Please note:

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

Good work ! Appreciate the work but has room for improvements .. like .. There is no alignment option for extensions. My extensions are always center aligned while the rest of the widget is left aligned. Appreciate if there was an option to set the time font size.. I know they are cosmetic .. But fixing these will help the widget look good. Anyway, Bought the Pro version.

Pretty good but small bugs Love the look and love the app, just wish the widget would refresh the calendar. Today is Saturday, but it's still showing yesterday's calendar events. No task killer. I do use Greenify but Chronus isn't "greenified".
