Minimalistic text is a highly customizable widget app
Minimalism is trend, and this app is for those who want to follow it by placing cool minimalistic widget in their homescreen. The added-value feature of this widget app is that it's highly customizable. There are up to 15 different size widgets, from 1x1 to 6x1. You can control almost everything: set color, font family, bold, italic, size, letter style, wdiget name, show background or make it transparent, widget direction, predefined layout (or what to show): time 12/24h, weather (ºC or ºF), battery bar, date... You can even set color and text style for the different words that the widget includes: normal accented and non-accented.
In addition, you can choose the language in which the widget is displayed (up to 30). Likewise you can set time zones, disable or enable action on tap or start another activity when tapping on the widget.
In a nutshell, one of the best minimalistic widgets regarding customization. Recommended.
It can be configured to display time, date, battery and weather information. The layout of the widget is highly customizable through the layout editor.

The level of customization is excellent. Would like to see more apps trying to rival it in that regard ...

Trust me when i say this, i was an iphone fanatic. Now, having tasted apps like this which customizes my home screen in anyway i can think (within reason) . I am no way going back. Love this app
Nothing happened! Kept asking me create widget, like Dah!
Thanks to this awesome app! Would be great if they allow a sign in option so that I can login and have similar kinda home screens in all of my android devices. Expecting it soon
Not user friendly editing
Very controllable and does exactly what it should do. Edit (20140707) : crashes constantly when adding widget.
