There’s a new popular clock widget every week, but what if you want more control over how you tell time? How do you make my own clock widget on Android? You download Make Your Clock Widget, of course.
Make Your Clock Widget doesn’t give you the ability to build the same amazing widgets that we’ve covered in the past, but it does offer the ability to customize your clock with nice results. The app comes with a set of five pre-made templates, and several more designs available for download, that can be used as starting points to build a widget. Users can adjust font size, positioning, background color, and style to get the right look for their widgets of varying sizes.
Most of the templates are inspired by already popular widgets – like Flip clocks or the more simple Typography clocks – but users can start from scratch and build a widget to their liking. There are eight widget sizes available, and someone can include time, date, month, day of the week, or lines that add to the design.
At the moment, I’d say that Make Your Clock Widget is best suited for people who like simple clocks but want to be able to have more influence over their appearance. The app is still in beta and will continue to offer more options and features as its developed. Download Make Your Clock Widget from the Android Market and follow the progress of MYCW in the XDA Developer’s Forum.
Here are a few examples of what people have created using this app.
