Retro Clock Widget

Retro Clock Widget


Now customize style and shortcuts with the Retro Clock Settings app, for sale on Google Play!

Retro Clock Widget was one of the first clock widgets available for android and has been downloaded by millions of users over the years. Version 2.0 brings many improvements, while keeping the simplicity that made it famous.

This app provides a home screen clock and date widget based on the classical mechanical flipping clock. The widgets act as shortcuts to the systems alarm clock and calendar applications.

When you want to customize the look and feel (like the colors, transparency, or shortcut applications), you can do so using the Retro Clock Settings companion app also available on Google Play.

To use the widget on Android 4.0+:
- open the app drawer
- tap the "Widgets" tab
- find Retro Clock / Date and drag it to the home screen

To use the widget on older versions of android:
- long press an empty spot on the home screen
- select "Widgets"
- tap on Retro Clock / Date to add it to the home screen

NOTE: If you are using a Task Manager, make sure to add Retro Clock Widget to the ignore list. When the app is killed, the time will stop updating.

Recent changes:
- fixed clock shortcut for LG G3 (and other LG devices)
- changed date shortcut to Google Calendar if it is installed

I have liked this app for 2 years, but now that I upgraded to ice cream sandwich I can't figure out how to tell it to open my calendar when I click on it.

Works good in a chinese ZTE V880 (rooted android 2.2), but the alarm shortcut does not work.

Great app It only gives you what it says and is clean, and you can use it for showing the date, time and month all in one. It has not failed or had glitches, and I have been using it for over half a year.
