I downloaded .. Nice concept but can we get pictures with high quality ??


Sent from my Nexus 4 using xda premium

thanks for your download and suggestion,
what do u mean by the high quality picture? u mean actually download the pic or the image in app?
if u mean the in app image, it gets the image directly from google to device, so it should display the same quality as google

Notification and widget.

the widget one, i fill with the image only, the white background you see is the original doodle image
in the notification, i fill with white, because most google doodle is major white background, so i fill the white at right hand side, but i can try make it transparent see if it would make it nicer

Oh, the one in the widget screenshot is white because the doodle is white? And thanks, about the notification.

I really like this idea. One suggestion, can you do it sort of like when you go to Google's home page? Have a box below you can click in and search for something? It would be neat to have a doodle of the day on my home screen that I could search from. I have attached a picture to show sort of what I'm talking about. Also would be nice if it went edge to edge as a widget

Re: [Widget] CodeG: Google Doodle Widget! (icon in Google main page)

Are your colors backwards on the pin?

White pins, red removes. (or is my colors off)

I'm having widget issues. Keeps crashing my launcher. Its probably my launcher. I'm using Atom Launcher (testing for educational purposes) and will load up my Nova and see if it works that way.


Thanks dev, I'm a big fan of the doodle and often go to Google from Chrome just to see it.

    Nice app, great idea !

    Few Ideas for you to make it better.


    1. Loose the Notification Icon in the Notification bar, no matter what notification mode is enabled.

    2. Apon clicking the Current Doodle launch Google now, this way the doodle would match the Google now doodle :D or like someone said make the Doodle appear with a search bar so its a usable search item, this would be better than the google one !

    3. The Main menu screen is weird its not simple to use or intuitive, a simple menu would be better
