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:
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!

Killer clock + weather widget My favorite clock/weather widget in cm. But, the app doesn't work correctly in miui v.6. The location service doesn't update. The weather button stops responding. Please fix! Edit: all is well now! Tnx dev and the miui team! 5* well deserved.

Widget is good but... The internal layouting is unfortunately rather buggy when resizing (Nova launcher). This is visible with Flex and Dash widgets (e.g. Calendar extension). The contents are only visible, if the widget size is set much larger than is actually needed (really!). This is especially striking with non transparent background (paid feature). Unfortunately so nearly unusable for me. If resizing were working without layouting problems, i would give 5 stars.
