New Stuff! (For Beautiful Widgets Only)


Since Google released their Android Design site, I saw they put out the Roboto font for people to use. This would be really easy way to put together a clock widget and a weather widget, so I went ahead and made a few today. Nothing special, but for those that like a simple and clean interface, this works pretty well.

I’m not great at naming things, so I shortened it down and called the collection “Robo”. There are thin (Skim) and thick (Fat) variations of black and white weather widgets at the moment. Right now there is only a thin black or white version of the numbers. These have no backgrounds whatsoever.

To install: The clock skins go in sdcard/data/beautiful-widgets/skins and the weather ones go in sdcard/data/beautiful-widgets/wskins. I’m going to send them to the app creator and hopefully they’ll be in there soon.

As for another project, I told someone I was working on redoing my Fallout skins that I started. I took a break to get these Robo skins out but heres some info about that Fallout project: The project is being redone completely and I’m going to try and use what I can from the actual Fallout 3 game. This whole set will include a newly designed dock, weather widgets, clock and wallpapers (most likely art from the game). I really wish I knew of something out there that could make this stuff more automated for everyone. Maybe it’s a matter of skinning stuff in Sense and making it an actual HTC Skin. If anyone has any ideas on how to basically make this a complete package, I would love to hear more!

BONUS! Galaxy Nexus wallpaper turned to black. If anyone even wants it…

  1. Can I get a list of what the abbreviations mean on the weather skins? Some are obvious but others hard to figure out haha.

    • Sure:

      SNW (Snow)
      SNW (Chance of Snow)
      STM (Storm)
      STM (Chance of Storm)
      CLD (Cloudy)
      RN (Rain)
      FG (Fog)
      HZ (Haze)
      ICRN (Icy Rain)
      LRN (Light Rain)
      MCL (Mostly Cloudy)
      PCL (Partly Cloudy)
      SNY (Sunny)
      CLR (Clear/Sunny)

      Sorry it took me awhile to get back. Hope that helps!

  2. Your clock theme (curved white) is missing from beautiful widgets after their recent update… it was my favorite! Any chance of a re upload? Thanks! 🙂

    • I’ll have to grab the template files from Level Up and check it out. I can’t promise anything at the moment, but I’ll take a look and see what I can do.
