Text-Based Clock and Battery Widgets for Android
If you’re looking for alternatives to traditional clock and battery widgets, here are some options that may fit the bill. Out of XDA comes Clockr, a new text-based clock widget designed for the true minimalist. Instead of dressed up numerical digits, the numbers are represented in their respective word forms. So, the time 12:34 would actually read as “twelveTHIRTYfour,” with the middle word in all capital letters to make the string more legible. It’s just a unique way to literally read the time. Similarly, BattStatt is a battery widget that can be coupled with Clockr to follow the text-based look.
Both Clockr and BattStatt (pictured above) are available in the Android Market for free. The next major update to Clockr will include customizing options. There’s also a paid version of BattStatt, which gives the user the ability to customize as well.
Although the time isn’t text-based in the third widget pictured below, I found that TypoClock does a good job of matching BattSatt. It’s new and not available in the Market yet, but you can grab it from XDA-developers.
