TypoClock is my new favorite Android clock widget

The best Android widgets list is constantly changing, especially when it comes to clocks. Of all the many options that are floating out there, TypoClock is my current personal favorite.

TypoClock is a 4×2 typography-inspired clock widget created by Semicuda. I discovered this widget in an XDA thread Wednesday and have altered my frequent wallpaper changes solely on its appearance. If the clock doesn’t look good, the wallpaper gets changed.

At the moment, this supports only WVGA screens found in large devices like Desire, Droid X, Evo, Nexus One, etc. However, the developer plans to add HVGA and QVGA support, so other phones will be compatible. Only English is supported on Sense ROM’s, but stock Android ROM’s should be able to see the date displayed in their native language.

There are also plans to let users select text color. Follow the development process in this thread and scan the QR code at the end of this post to get a download link. Once you’ve got the file, follow our tutorial for how to install APK files.
