Lightbulb [WIDGET][2.2+] Chronotopia beta 14 - The ultimate make your own widget

I finally have the first beta release of the new widget to replace mClock. This is a beta release so please let me know if you find any bugs or have any suggestions. Apk is attached.

Ideas for chronotopia

Features:
  • Fully editable widget layout and properties
  • Export widget as a theme
  • Import theme
  • Main launcher to edit any created widget (in apps folder)
  • Clock, date, battery, shapes, gps
  • Custom fonts, colors, gradients, shadows, blur, autosize
  • Low battery usage (only updates when screen is on)
  • Weather including icons
  • Custom images
  • Notifications: sms count, missed calls, voice mail indicator
  • Next alarm
  • Tap to launch for individual elements
  • Phone signal strength

Coming:
  • More weather features
  • Finish theme support
  • Languages
  • More elements

What you can help with:
  • Bugs
  • Your own themes, The top ones I like I'll include with the release (no external fonts please)
  • Screenshots
  • Ideas, improvements

Bugs so far:
  • Rotation issues

Quick manual:
  • Long press to add elements to panels.
  • You can press the menu button in the editor to zoom out and change the view to the element list or the element properties
  • You can drag elements that are contained by a canvas element
  • Elements can auto sized, pixel sized or percent sized

By fully editable, does this mean it will work on a Tab, 5x1 or 5x2? It looks really nice, and I am looking for something for weather on a Tab. Thanks for your work on this, even if it doesn't work on a Tab I will put this on my Fascinate or D1.

I played with it for almost 10 minutes and couldn't even figure out hoe to show a clock. All i see are color and alignment settings. Color and alignment of what i can't figure out.

Yes it supports those widget sizes. It is very easy to add additional sizes if one is desired.

After you add the first panel (canvas or stack) then you long press to add other elements. After talking with another user I see there is a need for a simple editor in addition to the advanced editor. I'm open to ideas on how that should work.

Send me the logcat output when you get FCs so I can track them down.

As a side note, I have the weather ready. I don't have all the features that I want to support but at least the basics work. My next task is to make a create wizard that will walk you through the steps of making a simple layout. Once I get it ready I'll release the next version.
