Thumbs up [ZOOPER][WIDGET]Flat Calendar Widget (UPDATE 6/22: new colors, fixes)

Hello all,

After enjoying the great work of everyone else around here, I decided to "make" an app all my own. Both within the Play Store and among the Zooper skins, I've always had a hard time finding attractive calendar widgets. Eventually, I just decided to make my own! I decided to share because I figure that others might have had the same desire as me.

I was inspired by the design of skins like FlatSearch and Pure Flat Clock as well as my favorite icon pack Flatastico and really wanted a calendar widget to go with my flat theme. So...here we are!


There are 3 4x2 layouts of both blue and green themes, plus a compact 4x1 version of each color scheme.

You can download from the Play Store; for now, I would like to keep all downloads there so the app can get some exposure through searches and the like. If that's a problem, send me a PM and I can send you the .apk.

I am now offering a PRO version for .99 USD to support all of my time spent working and tweaking. Benefits of PRO:
-NEW live weather configuration for each layout
-NEW pro exclusive black theme
-30 total layout options vs 12 in free version
-Ability to save layouts for future customization

Some screenshots:
 



Update 6/21: New Moonshine-inspired color scheme. Designed to coordinate with Moonshine Icons and associated wallpapers. Opaque background. See screenshot of those icons along with the new widget color scheme:

 


I owe a tremendous debt to the developers of Zooper widget - they have made the process of turning a user-made skin into a working app quite easy, considering how little coding knowledge I have. The aforementioned app developers whose gorgeous themes helped inspire me deserve my gratitude as well. XDA folks in general, thank you very much for making this place inviting for a person who has had to learn every single little thing about Android over the past year or two since I bought my first device. Any feedback is appreciated; this is my first app and I fully acknowledge that I could be making some sort of silly mistake or otherwise being a bad web/xda citizen.

Looks nice, but I think it would look better if you had the number dates and weekdays aligned with each other.
