Ultimate Custom Widget (UCCW) - Android


Developer Quote: "Make your own widgets easily in a WYSIWYG (What-you-see-is-what-you-get) editor. Use custom layout, fonts, images, shapes, interesting objects like series clocks, weather information with icons."

I was actually intimidated by this widget platform for quite a while, I'll admit. Creating my own widgets with UCCW seemed like it came with a learning curve, and so I kept putting it off. Until I realized that I could grab the widgets made by other people, that is.

Once you have UCCW installed, you can oh-so-easily find and add the gorgeous widgets made by others by searching on Google Play. Check out the screenshots to see just a couple examples.



The only problem I've had with this awesome app is spending too much time with it!

ReLaunch (Android) - A Super-fast App Launcher Overlay


Developer Quote: "ReLaunch automatically categorises your apps into 9 unique categories and provides an elegant yet simple launcher that can be accessed from anywhere with a single swipe."

Keep in mind that this is a launcher overlay, so you can use it with your favorite Android launcher. It simply and effectively (and attractively) gets you to your most-used apps fast!

Some screenshots:



Features:

★ Automatic App Categorisation. Using the Google Play Market all your existing apps will be categorised when ReLaunch is installed and new apps are categorised as you download them.

★ Super Fast Launcher. Access the ReLaunch launcher from anywhere by touching the left or right edge of your screen. With a single swipe move to the category and then the desired app and release to launch.

★ Manual App Categorisation. Override the automatic categorisation by long-pressing an app icon in the ReLaunch launcher and moving the icon to your preferred category.

★ ReLaunch Learns. The more apps you launch the more ReLaunch learns your favourite apps and sorts them in the launcher for even faster access. Also supports alphabetical sorting which is the default sort mode.

★ Multi-touch Support. Launch the launcher with one hand and an app with the other. Perfect for larger screen phones and tablets.

★ Calibrate. Configure the position of hotspots on the left and right hand side of your screen.

Smart Screen and Screen Off & Lock (Android) - Two excellent apps for controlling your phone's sleep mode

I'm doing something a little different here by posting on two apps at once, but I think you'll see why these two fit together so well.

First is Smart Screen Off Lite, which solved a problem for me. Keeping your phone close to hand is a must nowadays, but when certain types of notifications cause your screen to wake up, you don't want them to wake you, too. The light coming from the screen can disturb sleep even if it doesn't wake you completely. This app uses your phone's proximity sensor to turn your screen off and keep it off. So it's easy to turn on the app and put your phone face down to keep the screen from waking.

Second is Screen Off and Lock. This one solves the problem of having to press the power button on your phone when you want to turn off the screen and lock it. Instead, you add the app widget to your home screen. One tap of the widget turns off the screen and locks the phone. Simple and easy.

Check out the video to see both in action!
