Widgets For SmartScreen

At the moment only 4 Widgets are available but te best thing about SmartScreen is that developers have created some sort of SDK to ensure that all people can create new Widgets to be used by this application.  So we can expect in the coming days we will get new utilities. We’ll inform you all the latest here.

DevTeam Updates : The Widget DevTeam finally, is an RSS reader that automatically updates every day (this parameter can be customized). Then displays a small piece of text on the last article posted on its official blog.

Clock : The clock however, provides for full customization. First, they can decide whether to show or hide it through a switch, but we also have other settings that allow us to choose the size of font, format and even the color of the numbers.

Notes : The widget is highly customizable because it allows us to choose the font (even watching the preview), the size of the text and format of the date.E ‘connected directly to the native Notes database and then display all our notes on lockscreen saved.

Calculator : As for the calculator, is translucent and works very quickly. E ‘can make even the square root and percentages. The Widget can be customized.

    I agree with the above. Talk about misleading garbage. They post pictures with it running all these widgets and talk about all it can do, only to release it with notes and a lame calculator. To top it off, they charge $5. Does it strike anyone else as odd that there’s pictures of all those widgets and none of them are available? I’ll pass on any future paid apps from these clowns.

    the lite version takes a away the music player functionality from the lockscreen, with no widget to replace it…

    What the hell? I waited for this app and the only main widget I wanted was weather – which isn’t on it.

    LOVE IT! Got the Lite version. It’s a bit buggy. Sometimes I have the time and the date and sometimes it’s gone. No worries I reinstall and the world is alll good. One request please, could you offer the time in a 12 format in addition to the 24 format, please? Thanks a bunch for this great widget. As soon as I get a job, I’ll get the full version.

    So far it seems a little underwhelming. Holding out for the Cydget version of this idea.
