Not only do widgets make your task easy, but they also help in customising your home screen to extents which completely change the look of your home screen. Today I will list a few of those EPIC android widgets available on Play Store that help you with your daily tasks as well as customise your phone.

Best Clock Widgets

Digital Clock Widget Xperia (Free)

This is one of my favorites, it’s just a Xperia clock widget with basic functionalities like weather, tap actions, wind speed and time of course. The look of it is what’s the best thing about it, especially for those out there who loved the Xperia Clock, this is definitely the one for you.

Minimal Clock

Well, I don’t think there’s more to add regarding this widget. A minimalistic designed clock widgets with options including Show Date, Show Battery Percentage and the option to launch an application on tap. A dozen of color coding options related to the clock face, hour text, AM/PM, minute text and much more.

Another one of my personal favorites from those KitKat days. Being an open sourced digital style clock, that means you can grab the code and modify it to your likes. It contains the basic options like 12hr and 24hr formats, lowercase and uppercase modes and launches the default clock application on tap. As old as the app is, it still fits in just perfectly with the latest material themes.

Last but not the least on this list of clock widgets is Chronus. Chronus consists of a clock(isn’t it obvious?), Weather, Tasks, Feeds and Calendar widgets. The icing on the cake here is the Pixel+ bubble widget that is included in this pack. Not only that but it also consists a News Feed with built-in RSS sources and pockets “Read it later”.

Zooper Widget (Free/Pro)

Zooper is a DIY widget which allows you to do many things. The good thing is that even if you’re lazy and don’t wanna make your own widgets, there a lot of widgets for Zooper on the Play Store. Zooper Widget has been built from the ground up with the battery in mind; nothing will be done while your phone sleeps, no weather will be updated if you have no weather information on the screen, and no location will be updated if you do not ask it to. Below are a few Zooper widget packs that we’ve personally picked for you-

It might be safe to say that Zooper is undoubtedly one of the best android widgets available out there!
