On ssj5trunks' (the developer of Androkkid) request, I 'm opening a thread for widget for this great program.

The Androkkid comes with these widgets:
wmdirk has supplied a widget library to facilitate the development of widgets, version 1.4, Dec. 26, 2009: http://sites.google.com/site/wmdsoft/wmd-androkkid-lib

After talking to wmdirk (and because I no longer use Androkkid), I've decided to change this first post. wmdirk's widgets will not be updated here but on his webpage http://sites.google.com/site/wmdsoft/home. He seems to be the only one currently making widgets for Androkkid, and he is very successful in doing so. But some of the widgets are not free, and I didn't want to mix the free and the commercially available in one list. However, this thread will still be used by wmdirk to answer questions regarding his widgets, and to announce new ones.

Other widgets that have to be installed separately (I'll try to keep this updated and with the newest first):

This is a list of wmdirk's widgets: some of them free http://sites.google.com/site/wmdsoft/home
  • WMD-NextAppointments
  • WMD-Clock+
  • WMD-RegInfo
  • WMD-Clock
  • WMD-TaskManager
  • WMD-WifiToggle
  • WMD-BTToggle
  • WMD-Profile
  • WMD-Calculator
  • WMD-Agenda
  • WMD-Tasks

Other widgets: all free

Installing:
Unzip the files to the Widget directory and Androkkid will automatically detect the widgets. Then holding on the desktop, click add, then widget, then select it, and ok and they should show up on the desktop.

Skinning:
The widgets can be skinned by changing the background image - bg.png in the gfx directory. However, it's important to keep the same size as the original, otherwise the font won't show well.

No, you are not stupid, I'm the one who was sloppy and forgot instructions.
You should just unzip the files to the Widget directory and Androkkid will automatically detect it. Then holding on the desktop, click add, then widget, then select it, and ok.
The weather widget has a settings menu you can reach by clicking in the top half. Not all the settings have an effect yet. Clicking lower on the widget, should refresh, but I'm not sure that's working yet. Also I forgot to delete a debug message. Will try and upload a new version today.

Looks great - so much better than mine! And great that more people are making widgets!
