I'm Jolan, the developer of Magical Location Clock (MLC - mlc.jolanrensen.nl), an app I've been working on for about a year now.
If you know Tasker you might know me from my ADB Shell and Hotword Plugins, or maybe my Widget Screensaver app (all can be found at my signature).
I think it's time to release MLC as a beta as of now!
What is MLC?
MLC is a widget for your homescreen that allows you to see easily and stylishly where your family or friends are, just like the Weasley clock from Harry Potter! The widgets are themed and the themes can be chosen from the default themes or from user themes that can be shared directly or published to themes.mlc.jolanrensen.nl.
More information about the app can be found at the website mlc.jolanrensen.nl, or at the Play Store description which I attached below.
The app is free to use, but if you want access to the huge theme editor, have more than one group at a time or be able to add people to a group using an API, you will need the full version that can be unlocked using a one-time in-app purchase.
Let's add some more screenshots:
To try it out, download the beta using the Google Play Store or XDA Labs.
Let me know what you think! For questions, just leave them below or email me at [email protected]. Please report any bugs, battery drain, tips etc. you find as I can then improve the app for everyone!

It's been hundreds if not thousands of hours of work and I've learned an immense amount in the process. There probably still are bugs in the app and things that can be improved, so please do not hesitate to tell me what you think! This app works well with Widget Screensaver made by myself. With it you can display the clocks in a screensaver! It also works with Wearable Widgets. Using this app you can display a clock on your smartwatch too!
