    Please post any suggestions here for now. I'll be creating a better place in the future.

    Future updates:

    I'm stupid. If I can't get to it from the Market, I have no idea how to do it. Instructions would be great and I'll give it a test.

    Go to URL in browser, the download will start. When it's done, pull down the notification shade and click on the file you downloaded. Then click Install, then Done. add the widget to a screen.

    It could just be my bad eyes but I think the hands need to have a higher contrast with the big I in the center.

    Re: Cyclone clock widget for Android

    Installing:

    1. Go to Settings -> Applications -> select "Unknown sources"

    2a. If you are viewing this on your phone just click the link above. It should ask if you want to install.

    2b. If you are on a computer download the file in the link and save it on your computer somewhere that you can find it.
    2ba. Attach your phone to your PC via USB and copy the file to the root of your sd card.
    2bb. Use a file browser (e.g. - Astro) to locate the file on your sd card and click on it. It should ask you to install at this point.

    3. This is a widget, not an app. So, you now have to add the widget to your home screen.

    I was concerned about that. Should I make the hands thicker? Different color? Longer?

    It would just point to the link above until I get it in the market.

    Here it is if that helps:

    right, I'm just viewing this on my computer, so I would just scan for my phone to navigate and download...

    Re: Cyclone clock widget for Android

    Veiwing on my DX. Overall it looks good. The hands do need to be easier to see. maybe some kind of outline or larger with arrows.

    The only time it is hard to make out is when it is in the red "I" portion.

    Re: Cyclone clock widget for Android

    Alright, so with this ISU clock, I'm thinking of saving off a ISU scene for my phone...suggestions for backdrops etc.?


    speaking to the clock, really it works well for me.

    Re: Cyclone clock widget for Android

    I like the clock on my Samsung Galaxy. Is there a way to make the widget a little larger?

    Re: Cyclone clock widget for Android

    I'm new to smartphones. How do you use the q code?

    I downloaded it the old fashioned way and it looks great. I will agree on the hands being hard to see in the big 'I'. Any plans for a sweep second hand? That would make it more useful than the digital clock already on the phone.

    Nice work.

    for the q code, download a barcode scanner, scan the image, it takes you to the download for quick and easy install. Works the same for a lot of things, web sites, product pages - very useful.
