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!

Great but busted on LG G3 I was using this app on my Nexus 5 and it worked great - however now that i've got a G3, i cannot get the calendar events to appear on Flex for the life of me :(

Looks great but... The update rate for the notifications is abysmal; also the pushbullet extension doesn't seem to work. Edit: "weather update rate applies to all applications." Manual sync doesn't update notification count, only auto? Developer responded to support ticket promptedly and explained the matter. Besides all that, good app.

Fed up I'm really tired of the pro version not being recognized. The devs gave me a stupid reason for the problem saying that it was a problem with the play store because i have multiple accounts. Odd that Chronus is the only app that does this.
