Tardis Widget

Tardis Widget


Doctor Who TARDIS widget: press the widget directly on your home screen! Plays the TARDIS materialization sound effect and flashes on touch.

This app was suggested by Peter B. I do apologize for the fact that proper animation (like the fading effect in Tardis Button) isn't actually programmatically possible with widgets.

If you find any bugs or have any suggestions, feel free to email me at [email protected]

KNOWN ISSUES:
-*Update* Mute option added, so I guess if you prefer to mute on boot that would be a solution of sorts to the problem below.
-When you reboot your phone after the widget is already placed on your home screen, it'll do a weird double update and then stop itself (so basically it plays the TARDIS noise). I'm not really sure why that is at this point, but it's likely a result of the way Android handles widget updates (this widget inherently has no auto-update; each press is considered an update)

Recent changes:
Latest Version: 1.3
-Added option to switch between TARDISes, like the button. Thanks for your suggestions.
1.2:
-Mute option added! Thanks for the feedback.

Not bad. Room for improvement perhaps. If you want to work on it some more, an option to use a longer version of the sound (letting you hear the other noise it makes in flight would be cool) . Also maybe a smaller version of the widget?
