Yet another set of basic home screen widgets. They are designed to provide you with the most important information at a glance, yet still allow you to enjoy the sight of your (Live-) wallpaper.
This package contains:
* Glass Clock Widget
Enter a city name, or use geolocation to automatically find your location. Add more than one clock widget to your home screen in order to follow the time and weather around the world.
* Glass Calendar Widget
See the current date, along with the next three events in your calendar.
* Glass News Widget
Read your favorite RSS/Atom feeds from your home screen. Select one of the build in feeds (BBC, Reuters, WIRED ect.) or add your own custom feed.
* Glass All-In-One Widget
All the above widgets combined into one big 4×3 widget. This is for those of you on platforms where the three separate widgets don’t line up properly.
FREE & PAID VERSIONS:
All the widgets are semi-transparent, with a nice smoked glass look. But the paid version will allow you to change the tint and transparency of the background as you wish.
1) I can’t find the widgets
The widgets don’t show up in the App-drawer. Instead, they can be found in the widget list. In Android 2.x/3.x the widget list is opened by tapping and holding on an empty space on the home screen. In Android 4.x (ICS) they can be found in the widget-drawer, which is located on its own tab in the app-drawer.
2) I still can’t find the widgets
The most common cause of this problem is that the widgets are installed on the SD-card. Android doesn’t like widgets on the SD-card. Please try to move them back to the main memory of the phone/tablet.
3) The widgets just aren’t there!
A few users running Android 3.2 have reported a bug, where they get the error message ‘No more room on this home screen’ during the installation of the widgets. The installation seems to work regardless, but the widgets still doesn’t appear in the widget-drawer. There are two possible workarounds for this problem: a) Start the Android Market App and open the market settings by clicking the button in the upper right corner. Then disable the ‘auto add shortcuts’ option. Note: this option is in the settings for the market app, not the general phone/tablet settings. b) Reboot the phone/tablet before installing the widgets.V1.9.1 update:
What’s in this version:
- Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!
- In attempting to fix a time zone bug for one user, I introduced a much worse problem for a lot of users. Hope this fixes it for everyone.
- More efficient use of cache when Android re-starts the widgets after killing it temporarily
- New icon
- Background updates no longer clears cache
- Removed ‘auto-reset’ and the ‘scroll by page’ feature from the calendar. Also, it is no longer possible to scroll the calendar backwards from ‘now’ to ‘next year’
