CyanogenMod’s cLock widget now on Play Store as Chronus

Chronus2

CyanogenMod users, will be familiar with their cLock widget. DvTonder, part of the CyanogenMod team did most of the coding.The widget that allows you to display the time, basic weather information, and upcoming calendar appointments on your lock screen has made its way to the Play Store under the name “Chronus.” Its design as you would expect from CyanogenMod is pretty sleek. The widget is a free download from the link below.

Description
Welcome to Chronus, an elegant Home and Lock screen clock, weather and calendar widget.
By popular demand this widget is being released as a stand-alone, Play store installable app.
Functionally the same as the Cyanogenmod cLock widget and brought to you by the same developer, this independently released, standalone widget takes back its original name, Chronus and brings the same elegant look and feel to the broader Android community.
The standard version is functionally equivalent to the CyanogenMod cLock widget in CM10.2 with added support for older versions of Android. A ‘pro’ version of the widget will be released in Q4 2013 with additional features and customizations.
Features (all versions):

  • Support for Android 4.1 and later
  • Supports adding as a widget to either the Home screen (Android 4.1+) or Lock screen (Android 4.2+) or both
  • Select between Analog or Digital clock panel and customize the look and feel
  • Choose whether to show Alarms
  • Change font bold/normal in Digital Clock, Date and Alarm
  • Weather panel with Yahoo! weather
  • Color or Monochrome weather icons
  • Minimized weather widget support (especially handy on lock screen)
  • Calendar panel showing a scrollable list of upcoming events
  • Tapping event opens calendar at selected event
  • Taping calendar icon opens Calendar at today’s date
  • Change the font color of all text in all panels
  • Configure widget when adding or from the Chronus app in the app drawer
  • Highlight upcoming calendar events with custom colors and font bolding

Credits:

Even though I wrote significant parts of the widget, lots of credit also goes to Danny Baumann for his work on the weather updating service and general code cleanup, the many CyanogenMod community translators for adding all the languages that are included, and other community contributors such as Nicolai Ehemann and Matt Booth for the fixes and additional features they have contributed.
