i want to contribute with my first widget. It's text based notification widget. Inform you about unread messages or missed calls. Support verbose number (like 1 = one, 5 = five etc.). Very customizable - color, sizes, text format, bold, stroke ... If chosen font does not fit to area, it will be automatically resized to smaller one, which fits. Personally, I use it at Widget Locker screen, so I can easily see count of unread messages. Tested on HTC Desire (Froyo) and emulator (Froyo + Gingerbread)
- Android version >= 2.0
- Size of widget is 4x1
- Hide text, if there is no event
- Custom Colors (even alpha is supported)
- Custom fonts (for text and numbers)
- Font sizes
- Bold text
- Stroke text
- Onclick action
- English, Czech, French(DocUHT), German(swiadek) and Spanish(riahc3) localization

- Support multiple screen resolutions
- Choose between none or zero
- Not zero numbers can have different color than zero numbers
- Check unread emails (periodic check of IMAP account)
- Email account data are stored with AES encryption

I'm open to any suggestions and yours ideas, how to improve this widget. Thanks :)
If you already have version 0.1.2 and want to upgrade to 0.2, please uninstall old version first! New version has different settings system and its not compatible with old one, so it would probably cause application crash.
