Ava Lockscreen, by Floatify developer Jawomo, adds notification replies and brings widgets back to the lockscreen, even on Oreo

Ava Lockscreen, by Floatify developer Jawomo, adds notification replies and brings widgets back to the lockscreen, even on Oreo

Older Android aficionados might remember the short-term glory of lockscreen widgets. Added with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and then unceremoniously yoinked with Android 5.0 Lolipop, they allowed you to place your own extra stuff—like the then insanely popular DashClock Widget—right on the lockscreen. After that change, the trend for that level of customization shifted to full lockscreen replacements, most of which broke with changes in overlays as of Android 8.0 Oreo. But the new Ava Lockscreen, designed by the developer that brought you the Bixby button remapper bxActions and Floatify, is built for Oreo from the ground up.

DashClock Is Back With New (Materialized) Beta

DashClock Is Back With New (Materialized) Beta

Roman Nurik, a Design Advocate at Google, launched the DashClock Widget back in early 2013. It's an extremely versatile, modular widget that - by default - supports things like time, weather, unread Gmail messages, and alarms. But its modular nature is the real selling point. Users can add extensions for apps they're already using, allowing a lot of information from disparate and unrelated apps to be displayed in one handy widget.

After an update in December 2013, though, it seemed that DashClock had gone on a break. Happily, version 1.7 is currently in beta mode and its refreshed (materialized) interface is ready to try out now.

Want To See The Currently Playing Audio Track In DashClock? Check Out 'DashClock Music Extension'

Want To See The Currently Playing Audio Track In DashClock? Check Out 'DashClock Music Extension'

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. It's called DashClock Music Extension, and it... shows the currently playing music in DashClock. Unfortunately, DashClock itself doesn't yet support integrated buttons, so the extension merely shows the track info and nothing more.

Apex Launcher Launches v2.0, Introduces Badge And DashClock Widget Notifications Via Apex Notifier

Apex Launcher has bumped up to version 2.0, bringing in a host of new features to both the free and pro versions of the app. Free users who make the leap will find various improvements to the interface, updated translations, and the option to set the duration of vibrations. The pro version now allows users to place folders in the app drawer, but the star of the show is its integration with the new Apex Notifier.

ApexNotifier

Apex Notifier is not a standalone app, but an extension that works both with Apex Launcher and DashClock Widget. Apex Launcher Pro users who install Apex Notifier will see unread counts appear as badges atop various application icons, including:

DashClock Updated To v1.6 With New Design And Color Options

If there was ever a reason to use lock screen widgets, DashClock is it. This app from Google Engineer Roman Nurik creates a cool widget for your home or lock screen that can show data from multiple apps.

Roman Nurik Of DashClock Fame Releases New Live Wallpaper Called Muzei

Roman Nurik Of DashClock Fame Releases New Live Wallpaper Called Muzei

Perhaps you've heard of a little app called DashClock? The creator of that mega-versatile widget has just released a new app, but this time it's less utilitarian. Muzei Live Wallpaper takes pretty pictures, adds some Gaussian blur, and slaps them on your home screen.

Each day the app will get a new piece of art to serve as the base of the background. You can go into the Muzei app to see the piece in more detail (in immersive mode), or double tap on the home screen to clear the blur effect for a few seconds. If the art isn't doing it for you, there is also support for random or specific images from your gallery.

Todoist Android App Updated To Version 2.1 With New Google Now Integration And DashClock Support

There are many to-do list apps available for Android, and the majority of them are either available for free or just a couple of bucks. Todoist is different. This to-do list service costs $29 a year to take full advantage of (though a free version is available). In return, uses get a feature-rich setup that syncs across all of their devices. Today, the Android side of things just got better, as the Todoist app has gained support for Google Now and DashClock.

What's new:

  • Android KitKat support
  • Google Now support
  • DashClock widget support
  • Multiple bug fixes and small improvements

Now a user can say a simple command such as "note to buy bread" to have the task created inside of Todoist without having to manually launch the app.

[New App] DashClock RSS Viewer Extension Brings Quick Feed Viewing To Your Lockscreen

[New App] DashClock RSS Viewer Extension Brings Quick Feed Viewing To Your Lockscreen

We love RSS. We also love DashClock. So when we heard about a new DC extension that marries the two, well, we had to check it out.

Appropriately named, DashClock RSS Viewer Extension brings your favorite newsfeed(s) to your lockscreen (or homescreen, if that's where you use DashClock) by displaying the five most recent topics. It actually couldn't be simpler.

The extension comes pre-loaded with several feeds from some of your favorite blogs (including AP, of course). Alternatively , you can manually set your own. Otherwise, the only other option is the title: choose long or short. Past that, it's just your feed.

[New App] DashClock Facebook Extension Makes Your Clock More Social

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.

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.

Battery Widget Reborn Beta Adds Support For DashClock Widget, Torch Functionality, Bug Fixes

Battery Widget Reborn Beta Adds Support For DashClock Widget, Torch Functionality, Bug Fixes

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. Developers can easily add DashClock support into their app thanks to its handy API.
