Chronus: Home & Lock Widget

Chronus: Home & Lock Widget


PLEASE NOTE: Because of security policy changes in Lollipop you *must* uninstall DashClock or any app that defines the DashClock Extensions permission before you can install Chronus or you will get a -505 error. We are working on a solution and will release it soon. Thank you for your patience.

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!

Nice clock! But it disappears sometimes UPDATE: all of my widgets disappear immediately after I add. Any help guys? Great clock guys. Simple and attractive, can't ask for much more. However, about one a month, the whole widget disappears. I open the app to see if it's still there and it's gone. Not sure what's going on but I can usually add a new one and reconfigure but it's a pain spending a couple minutes getting all the settings just right. Other than that, I'm liking it! Thanks you.

If the watch face was more complex I could see going pro for it. But its so bland and simple.

Almost perfect Really fancy widgets, but sadly the vertical resizing of the calendar and the news widget doesn't work properly. There is too much space left on the bottom. A fast solution would be highly appreciated! Thanks
