Love text only clock designs? Who says they need to be plain and bland? Check this out. Not my original idea, but my own implementation. Skin includes 4 assignable hotspots for your favorite apps..


To use this skin, you have to install, apply and edit/assign hotspots to the skin.

  1. Install -
    1. This is a skin installer. Launch the app and tap "Install Skin".
    2. Next screen, tap "OK" for "Replace app?".
    3. Next screen, tap "Install". When that finishes, tap "Done". Skin is now installed.
  2. Apply -
    1. You must have Ultimate custom widget (UCCW) 2.1.2 or higher installed. http://goo.gl/eDQjG
    2. Place a UCCW widget of 4x2 size on the homescreen. You can do so by dragging the widget from app drawer or by long pressing homescreen to pull up widget menu.
    3. This will open the skins list. Skins downloaded from play store will show up ONLY HERE.
    4. Tap on the skin you want to apply and it'll be applied to the widget.
    5. Resize it anyway you want to best suit your screen.
  3. Edit -
    1. After applying the skin as mentioned above, launch UCCW app itself. Tap Menu, tap "hotspot mode" and tap 'OFF'. UCCW will exit.
    2. Now tap anywhere on the uccw widget. It'll open in uccw edit window.
    3. Scroll through the components in the bottom half of the screen. Assign apps to hotspots in this window. This IS a MUST.
    4. You can change color, format etc too (optional) in this window.
    5. When done, tap Menu, tap "hotspot mode" and tap 'ON'. UCCW will exit.
    6. Your changes will now be applied to the widget.
You can watch the steps in video below.

  • If the "Install" step fails; go to Android settings > Security and make sure "Unknown sources" is enabled.
  • To change temperature unit between Celsius and Fahrenheit -> Launch UCCW app itself. Tap Menu, tap settings. Here, if "Celsius" is marked, temperature will display in Celsius. If unmarked, Fahrenheit.
  • If weather info is not displayed/updated, Launch UCCW app itself. Tap Menu, tap settings, tap location. Make sure "Auto location" is checked and that the third row is correctly showing your location.
  • You can also tap Menu, tap settings, tap 'weather provider' and change the selected provider.
  • Mail me if you have ANY issues.

== CREDIT ==
Original layout/design of the skin is the idea of KimboPrice. I just ported the design to UCCW. Design credit to him.

    Install went well and I was loving it. Had some problems with the weather hotspot and it wasnt five minutes later when I got an email back with the solution to my problem. 5 stars earned!

    Changed my previous 1 star review to 5. Had to boot several times but it eventually showed up in UCCW list.

    The spacing is a little messed up and a " : " would be nice between the numbers if possible. Other than that its great

    \\ EDIT: Author updated the app to fix the problem below. No problems since! Back to the beautiful app it is. // This app was great but now I'm noticing its off center and the numbers overlap more than they use to. Hopefully this is fixed in the next upd
