User reviews of Nice Simple Clock (Widget)
Pretty good in customizations and relatively small footprint. HTC Desire Bravo, CM7 (and every byte counts!).

Updated Review... Downloaded and installed as normal but there are no Nice Simple Clock widgets in my widget drawer. I know how to add a widget.. I've had various android smartphones for many years. The widgets just didn't end up in the proper area evidently. I've had no issues with my HTC One M7 with 4.4.3 and Sense 6.0. UPDATE: I rebooted my phone and widgets are there now but this info really should be in the instructions. Uninstalling .. the clock is to small to use as a desk clock and it doesn't flip to landscape mode.

Very Nearly Perfect.. This is the most customisable `simple clock and date´ widget I've seen so far. If I had to criticise this app in any way, it would only be on aesthetic grounds; I personally like to see the date as e.g. 3 December 2014, without the zero before the day. Also if a few more fonts were to be added and maybe a text-only option, I'd happily donate!
