Sidebar Plus got a bit of attention a few days ago when it was in testing on XDA, but now the app is done and live in the Play Store. This app creates a series of slide-out bars on your device that can be filled with almost anything you want, from quick settings to widgets.

This app includes a few pre-configured sidebars with settings, contacts, and a few other things.

We've all been there – it's dark, you drop something, need a little help finding your keys, or simply want to know what you just stepped in. Naturally, you reach in your pocket, pull out your phone, and hit the power button. The screen instantly becomes your flashlight. Of course, there are plenty of apps that can also toggle the camera's LED flash, which makes a much better flashlight than the display.

I've been a big fan of Battery Widget Reborn since we first covered it back in July of 2012. In fact, it's been installed on every device I've owned (or tested) since then. Why? Because it looks good, brings a lot of info to the table, and is constantly updated with new features.

One of my other favorite widgets is the more-recently announced DashClock Widget. There's a lot to love about it, too – like the fact that it supports extensions, making it infinitely customizable.

It took almost no time for Roman Nurik's DashClock Widget to explode, and dozens of apps have been adding support for the almost-infinitely customizable widget in the few short weeks that it's been out. We've already seen additions from apps like Any.DO and PushBullet, as well as a slew of independent extensions.

Today's extension from GoneMAD Software – the creator of GoneMAD Music Player –  is a simple one, but could be useful for some users.

More DashClock extensions? Well, people are pretty excited about the functionality DashClock brings. So yes, more DashClock extensions. The AnyDash extension actually opens up a world of possibilities by piping notifications from any app into DashClock. There are a few caveats, but it looks like everyone's favorite clock widget just got much more useful.

AnyDash has to be registered as an accessibility app before you can use it. This allows it to sweep up notifications from the Android system and display the appropriate icon in DashClock (nothing nefarious going on here).

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.
