    Default Can anyone suggest a smaller weather and clock widget?

    I was wondering if a smaller weather and clock widget was available because the stock one takes up too much space and hides the wallpaper on home screen. Thanks for any input or suggestions.

    I have an app widget called Digital Clock Widget which looks like the one for the iPhone. It's not small, but it's transparent. You might be able to change the size in the settings though. For weather, I have the Weather Channel app. Word to the wise though, turn off the alert notifications or you'll get everything from high winds to kittens stuck in trees. My home screen is attached so you can see them:

    Well, I tried to attach but it didn't work.

    I have been using One More Clock (free version) since AC did a review on it. Works pretty well and has many different clocks to choose from.

    I'm using One More Clock Widget and they have a ton of choices to choose from. Great customization. My current screen has a 2X4 widget that is transparent. Nice app for free.

    There are more weather and clock widgets out there than fleas on a Mississippi 'coon dog. I use HD Widgets, which has some really good looking ones.
    gnr_2 and spencerdl like this.

    I tried a bunch and settled on wmd-weather. It is fairly small and no goofy permissions. It has different backgrounds and icon sets you can download through the settings.

    I stuck up for HD Widgets and then it started eating my battery like crazy, even with all their battery saving tips checked off. I know it was the culprit because when I uninstalled it, my battery worked fine again. I'm talking about a 15% drop an hour without using the phone. I use the clock in the notification bar now...lol I use weatherbug elite for the weather.

    I'm using weatherbug elite at the moment.. but if you want a very customizable westher/clock download UCCW widget then look up UCCW skins on the play store.

    I am loving some 1Weather. Drop this with a clock widget of your choosing and you get better space efficiency and more functionality.

    You might also consider a custom ROM that allows you to change your DPI resolution; I found the stock settings to feel like I was using a geezer device with BIG LETTERS AND NUMBERS AND STUFF.
    If you are inclined to spend a lot of money and want a pretty trophy with which to pass the next few years of your life that talks to you in a condescending voice, can't navigate to save its life, expects full control over all you do, demands $13 for a $3 purchase, allegedly has a single recessed button, needs an expensive computer and a credit card to do anything, hates your music and has purses designed just for it...

    Get married to someone you hate... or get an iPhone.

    I've been using Fancy Widgets for several months. There are several widget size options - 1x1, 2x1, 4x1, 4x2 and 4x4.
