The first app I downloaded for my first Android was a live wallpaper. Despite its battery-sucking ways, I was thrilled to add so much customization to my new phone. It’s one of the perks Android users still have over iPhone users. Four years later, there’s even more variety for customizing the Android experience, from launchers to widgets.
Make Your Clock Widget Pro ($2.49)
Widgets don’t get more customizable than this. With the Make Your Clock Widget app you can use quite a bit of imagination to create something truly personal for your Android. There are dozens of layouts available for your custom clock, with minimalistic designs to more elaborate options. And while the name suggests this widget is just to keep tabs on time, you can also include weather information as well as battery and memory data to your custom widgets. Nearly every widget size is supported, and you can tweak text size and color, transparency, background and font size. There are more designs available for download and the pro version includes more data display options for battery life and weather.
