UCCW - Ultimate custom widget

UCCW - Ultimate custom widget


One of Android’s greatest strength is customisation. UCCW takes this idea further to let you customise widgets on homescreen. Even without rooting your device or installing a custom ROM or installing a special launcher, you can do some incredible things to shape your phone to be just the way you want it. UCCW, or Ultimate Custom Widget, is a widget that lets you place custom clocks, battery meters, weather info, and just about anything else right on your homescreen. There is a sheer number of skins available on Google Play and shared in various forums, and more skins are being added all the time.

Customization is often a difficult process, but not with UCCW. Just install a skin, and tell UCCW to show it or make your own skin.

UCCW offers a WYSIWYG (What-you-see-is-what-you-get) editor allowing to customise layout, fonts, images, shapes, etc.

Features:

Widget objects - text, shapes, images, weather, graphic (progress), analog clock etc.
Text objects - calendar, weather, battery info, missed calls, sms, gmail, location, next calendar event, tasker variables
Graphical objects - barcode, bar, pie
Special objects - Week bar, Series clock
Text mapping to override text values
Hotspots (actionable areas on widget)
Share skins with one press
Ability to customize objects for size, color, tranparency, fonts etc.


Issues:

Widget not updating
1. UCCW may be killed by task killers. So exclude UCCW in task killers.
2. Could be a launcher app issue; Try a different launcher.

Getting force closes
1. Uninstall UCCW and install again.
2. Check if Force closes are occuring with a particular skin; discard that skin.
3. Send a logcat if force closes continue.

Skins do not show
1. Google play skins may not appear for some custom roms or if screen density is changed.

Sometimes crashes randomly but still works? Not really obtrusive, but also the temperature is inaccurate. Says 27° constantly.

Please Get your act together, I really loved UCCW & don't want to use something else or see this great app fail. The in your face ads are also not cool. Glad I also read recent reviews before updating. That would have screwed me. I rely on UCCW widgets for my entire home screen set up! Luckily it still works for me, except crashes often in editing mode. Plus weather never ever displays correctly. Otherwise brilliant & I'd die without it!
