"Big clock widget"

Reviewed by / Mar 23, 2012

TypoClock is a big font and good-looking clock widget

Do you like big clock widgets? Then this is a choice. TypoClock is a well-designed widget that displays time, day name, day of the month, month and year. It's set in a good looking typo, and each one of this elements have different font size. If you tap on the widget it will show up like a screensaver in black background and the date widget (white color) in the middle of the screen. When you make that, the seconds are added to the widget.

TypoClock is highly configurable in its Pro version. The free version just allows you to set 24-h format, global color and global alpha. The pro version includes many other options to customize: one-click action, customize colors separately (time color, day name color, month color, etc.), customize alpha separately among others.

If you are looking for a light, simple a and customizable time/date widget, give this a go.

    would very much like to be able to edit widget after placing it. Seems strange that this basic functionality isn't included even in the paid version. Looks great on my device (Moto G) though.

    However, it'd really be nice to have lock screen widget functionality (for 4.2+ phones). Also, the ability to change settings without creating a new widget. And lastly, the resolution is slightly blurry as some have said...otherwise, its wonderful! I love the concept and hope the dev continues to support it! :)

    Nice app - if I could use it! I installed it but I cannot find where to tweak the features. For instance, the clock appears on my home screen with a black/white background but I cannot find where it allows me to make it transparent so my home screen shows through. Also, cannot find where to change the colour/size of the features. Emailed the support but no reply yet...
