CyanogenMod just announced that CM 10.1 builds starting with nightlies released today will be getting a brand-new clock widget called Chronus (initially known as 'Lock Clock'). It works both as a homescreen and lockscreen widget, is configurable, and provides extra information in the form of calendar events and weather. 


It works on both phones and tablets, and in lockscreen widget mode, appears collapsed and must be expanded in order to view additional information (this could later change with a settings toggle). Other than that, there's not much to know. It's a clock, it tells you the time, and it looks kind of nice.

    Is there any way to get this in an apk for unrooted phones?

          Konsta has uploaded his new ROM including it on Modaco today :D

        Darn. Hopefully someone can find a way to pull it out for the rest of us

          Once the nightlies including drop you can literally open up the .zip of any CM10 rom and navigate to the apk and extract it.

    Hopefully it'll work with CM10, as my devices is not supported with 10.1..

    I don't know if I got this in my december 31st nightly or not... changelog says something about "lockclock" app integration and I remember before I installed it seeing "introducing Chronus" and a google search yeilded nothing. Alas- my digital clock widget seems the same (no weather support) and nothing in lockscreen settings. =(

  • redbinary

    Got the 12-31 nightly for the galaxy tab 2/7 just to get this widget alas it isn't included yet

    • SickoPsycho

      yeah- that's what I'm seeing. It is there- but doesnt work yet. at least differently than the digital clock widget

  • Jörgen Pettersson

    Must the hours be in bold or is that possible to change?

    • SickoPsycho

      you can change under settings>system>clock widget>clock and alarm>bold hours

      • Jörgen Pettersson

        Great thanks!

  • SK

    Is this available as an app in the market? Looks really nice and well made.

      It might be eventually, the way Apollo was. But it was just released so, either way, wait and see.

      Or run CM. Become one of us... one of us...
