HD Widgets by Cloud.tv is one of the best ways to customize your weather, clock and switch widgets. It is highly customizable and is currently the best widget app that is currently out on the Google Play store. It does have a price point of $1.99 but it is worth it if you’re looking for nice high definition customizable widgets. HD Widgets has also been nominated for Editor’s Choice multiple times on Google Play. Not only that but the developer often puts HD Widgets on sale for a dollar off very often. If you come across a sale you’ll only be paying $0.99 for the widget package.
Honestly, if you’re tired of the widgets that come with your phone along with widgets that come with weather and clock applications, HD Widgets has you completely covered. Every widget you make with HD Widgets to put on your home screen is fully customizable. You’ll be able to change the color, font, border and style of the clock. You can also choose whether to give it a background to make it fit the theme of your phone. The plus to the background drop is that it also shows the date, current weather and etc. If you’re wanting just the clock you can easily get rid of the weather part with the touch of a button.
Yes, the backdrop is also completely customizable. Again, you’ll be able to customize the fonts, colors, borders and style of it so it fits the theme of your phone or just your personality. If you’re going for a crazy color or style for your widget, that works too. HD Widgets honestly is the most customizable widgets that I have ever seen. Not only that, but the widgets are designed in high definition so they also look pretty slick and stylish.
Clock and Weather widgets isn’t the only thing you can add to the screen. You can also add switches and customize those too. First, you can choose what you want the switch to do. This could monitor your battery level, turn the Wi-Fi on and off, turn your GPS on and off and really any shortcut you could possibly think of. Of course you can always change the color of the switch along with its style to once again, fit your personality and/or theme of the phone. To me, this app is well worth $1.99 and with the constant updates it may very well be worth more than that to me.
Overall, they did a fantastic job and I am really, really enjoying this package. You could be sitting down and customizing your widgets for quite some time before deciding on something because of how many options it has for you to choose from. I should also note that different widget sizes are available too. This allows you to have widgets for your tablet without having to purchase a second application to do that specifically.
I’m really impressed how well done these widgets were. The high definition is a very nice addition to the stock widgets you get with your phone if not a replacement, even.
