One of the truest shared experiences between people who create anything for public consumption is a ravenous desire to know how many people are using it and what they think. Just ask most bloggers and web developers, and you will hear how much they love the real-time statistics from Google Analytics. Unfortunately for app developers, there really isn't a great way to keep fresh information in front of our eyes without mashing the F5 key while staring at a web browser. The engineers at cloud.tv, known for HD Widgets, felt the same way and created App Stats, a very capable tracking and notification app.
HD Widgets, one of the nicest looking widget sets for Android, just got updated with support for the new lockscreen widgets in Android 4.2. This will add a bit more usefulness to the rather bleak set of stock widgets offered by Google for the time being, bringing information like weather, various toggles, battery status, and, of course, a slew of different clocks.
HD widgets is highly customizable, allowing users to choose from various backgrounds, fonts, colors, theme packs, and a lot more - so you should be able to find something that matches the look you're going for.
Version 3.0 of HD Widgets landed in the Play Store this morning, bringing a completely overhauled interface, all new widgets, and far more customizations that ever before along with it. I've been playing with the release candidate for the last couple of days (though I've been using HD Widgets for quite a while), and I have to say: this is the best version of HD Widgets yet.
For starters, all of the standard widgets have been updated with more color options, better customization, new backgrounds, and more overall detail. The preview editor has also been completely revamped, and is far more intuitive and easy to use now.
