Spice Up Your Home-screen with android widgets


One of the main things that sets Android apart from other operating systems, especially iOS, is the ability to add widgets to the home screen. But the annoying thing is that there is plethora of them at the Play Store making it difficult to choose the right one. So here in Part 2 of “Perfection through Customization” we are going to give our top recommended ones to take full benefit of Android. Following are my recommended android widgets.

Ultimate Custom Clock Widgets or UCCW for short have really changed the widget scene in Android. Not only you can make your own widgets from scratch, editing it in every possible way, but you can also simply download pre-built themes from the Play Store.


Zooper_android widget

Similar to UCCW, Zooper also allows to create your own widgets or if you’re too lazy ( like most of us are) just download some themes from the Play Store leaving the dirty job for the professionals.


Dashclock_android widget

Popular for its simplicity and customizability, Dashclock displays all the necessary information such as battery, notifications, weather etc. using plugins.

Beautiful widgets

One of the only widgets that actually lives up to its name. With lots of different sized widgets for clock, weather, forecast, it also allows to change its layout, theme even transparency and text color.

Slider Widget

This widget allows to control and adjust all your volume levels separately directly from your home screen.
