TypoClock is now available in the Market:

TypoClock (Paid)



TypoClock (Free)




So if you want to throw me 99ct, get the paid one


Hey everyone,

in reply to vaughnhcky89's request here I started developing a widget.

As more and more people are requesting a separate thread for this, here it is!

Since HTC screwed up the runtime used in Sense-ROMs, the widget will display the day and month names in English only! On AOSP ROMs, the localized name will be shown.

Suggestions now also possible through UserVoice

I'd also appreciate more size options. Oh, and a half-transparent black background option (compare dClock). Oh, and world peace while you're at it

Seriously, mighty fine app.

I'm still sticking to an earlier version though because I don't like the fixed font type right now. I've changed my system font and having a big widget in another font type kinda destroys homescreen aesthetics right now

Yes, background will be added soon... as for then fonts, I'm thinking of a way to make it more flexible...

Darn, I was hoping for that change as well. I wanted to use this as a replacement to the sense clock on my home screen, but it looks silly with a full-sized widget below it.

aww.. too bad then. i love it the way it is, but i prefer it if it's bigger.

any chance you could tell me what i should change in order to make it stretch? i've looked at typoclock_widget.xml in older version and noticed you use absolute layout. so i changed the x- and y-position of every text and scale up the text size a bit. but i got problem when compiling the apk back.. no idea what i did wrong though.
