Beautiful Widgets beta for Android Brings Moon Phases, More


I’ve long been a fan of LevelUpStudio and their apps. Back when HTC introduced their iconic flip-clock widget in Sense UI, LevelUpStudio came out with a copy-cat version that got them in some hot water. Later they re-released the widget pack based around a skinnable framework, apparently appeasing HTC in the process.

The developer has released regular updates including not only patches but new features and improvements as well, all while keeping the price below US$3.00.

Today via Twitter, LevelUpStudio announced something I’ve been asking for: Moonphases!

“Beautiful Widgets 3.5 Beta #2: – Almost final beta, limited to 5 days for testing. Moonphases, date format, etc!”

Until the new version is released the new features are only available in the beta version of the app — which will only run for five days before it time-bombs. Here’s your chance to give it a try for more than 15 minutes and see if you want to make the investment. I think you’ll like it, but keep in mind, it is a beta and its purpose is to identify bugs before the new version is released in the Android Market.
