Yet another set of basic home screen widgets.

They are designed to provide you with the most important information at a glance, yet still allow you to enjoy your (Live-) wallpaper.

This package contains:

* Glass Clock Widget
Enter a city name, or use geolocation to automatically find your location. Add more than one clock widget to your home screen in order to follow the time and weather around the world. The paid version includes the following display options:
- Show weather and clock
- Show date and clock
- Show alarm and clock
- Show clock only


* Glass Calendar Widget
See the current date, along with the next three events in your calendar. The paid version includes the following display options:
- Show date and events
- Show events only


* Glass News Widget
Read your favorite RSS/Atom feeds from your home screen. Select one of the build in feeds (Google News, BBC, Reuters, WIRED ect.) or add your own custom feed. The paid version includes the following display options:
- Show label and news
- Show news only

* Glass All-In-One Widget
All the above widgets combined into one 4x3 widget.

FREE & PAID VERSIONS:

All the widgets are semi-transparent, with a nice smoked glass look. But the paid version will allow you to change the tint and transparency of the background as you wish.

FAQ:

1) I can't find the widgets
The widgets don't show up in the App-drawer. Instead, they can be found in the widget list. The widget list is opened by tapping and holding on an empty space on the home screen.

2) I still can't find the widgets
The most common cause of this problem is that the widgets are installed on the SD-card. Android doesn't like widgets on the SD-card. Please try to move them back to the main memory of the phone/tablet.

3) How do I change the settings for a widget?
If you tab the upper left corner of the widget, the setting screen for that widget will open. If you tab the lower left corner, the widget will refresh itself.

Enjoy!

Recent changes:
I removed the 'OK' button in the preferences. Now you wont lose all you changes if you press 'back' one time too many by mistake. Instead, any changes made to the preferences automatically take effect when you leave the preference screen.

Also, I made some further tinkering with the weather provider. I never had this much problems with the old Google weather service.

unnamed calendars All exchange calendars show as unnamed calendars so you can't tell which calendar is on or off for display on the widget. Not good. Would be 4-5 stars otherwise.

Feature poor app The existing clock app on my phone is more robust and can display the same basic look... But in a more thought out way. The app is a good start, but things like legibility and intuitive interface should be higher on your priority list.

Sneaky app. *DO NOT DOWNLOAD* After downloading it disappears, doesn't show up in my app list. Finally found a shadow of it in my widgets, tried to add glass widget to a completely empty home screen and can't do it. Says there's not enough room on the page. Worthless app, shoddy development. Don't trust an app that disappears after you download it. Doesn't even show up in my Google Play apps list. I had to search for it by name and pick it out of the search results to find it again to get rid of it.
