DashClock is definitely the flavor of the week. Developers are falling all over themselves to build extensions for this multi-talented clock widget, and here's an interesting one. Whether you use DashClock on your lock screen or home screen, the new DashClock Facebook Extension could save you all kinds of frustration.

This app is simple – it displays your unread messages and notification count on the DashClock widget so you don't have to pop open the Facebook app as often. You will need to have the DashClock app installed, but Facebook itself is actually optional. You'll log in via the extension and can set the refresh interval from there.

Just like with the DashClock app, this extension is only for devices running 4.2 and higher. This one is free, so avid Facebook users running the latest Jelly Bean should check it out. That's a group that exists, right?

    DashClock on my Galaxy Nexus seems to really slow down the time between me hitting the button and the screen turning on. Any way I can fix this short of removing the widget?

    I can't get enough of Dashclock

      Just wish it had an option to display more extensions when collapsed. My Nexus 4 screen is wide enough to accommodate two more rows of icons.

    DashClock is seriously becoming my choice for app of the year! (But the year isn't even close to ending, just excited here).

  • MrWicket

    wonder if an official one will come out?.. I know Google + will do it and maybe Twitter but I know there's bad blood between Facebook and anything Google...

  • Sathishkumar

    It is really one of the best app of this year...... Cooooool......

  • Tom

    For some reason weather NEVER shows up for me in DashClock. Anyone else have this issue? Or know how I can fix this? Very annoying!!

  • Andrew

    This app doesn't exist on my Play store. Is it US only?

    • akshay7394
