About this app

Glass Widgets is a set of basic home screen widgets. The widgets are designed to provide you with the most important information at a glance, yet still allow you to enjoy your wallpaper.

You can add as many Glass Widgets to your home screen as you have room for.
Each widget can be configured to show a mix of content, including:

* Time
* Weather
* Calendar
* News (RSS/Atom feeds and Google News)

There are two widget sizes available: The standard 4x1 and the large 4x3.


All the widgets are semi-transparent, with a nice smoked glass look. The paid version will allow you to change the tint and transparency of the widgets as you wish.


1) I can't find the widgets. Can you help?
The widgets don't show up in the app-drawer. Instead, they can be found in the widget-drawer. On some devices widgets can be added by tapping and holding on an empty space on the home screen.

3) How do I change the settings for a widget?
By default the widgets has two hotspots in the upper and lower left corner. If you tab the upper left corner of the widget, the setting screen for that widget will open. If you tab the lower left corner, the widget will refresh itself. You can change the hotspots to do something else in the settings screen, but I recommend keeping one of the corners assigned to open the settings.

4) The new version broke my old widgets. What do I do?
Glass Widgets recently received a large update from version 2.4.0 to 3.x.
As part of the update, the previous widgets (Clock, Calendar, News) was
replaced with just two configurable widgets, a small 4x1 widget and a large
4x3 widget. Unfortunately this also broke the old widgets, and you'll need to
remove then from you home screen and then add new ones instead. If you run into
problems I recommend uninstalling any old versions of Glass Widgets and
re-installing the new version from scratch. If you find that the new version
just doesn't work for you, or you prefer the old one, I've uploaded that
version to the Play Store under the name 'Glass Widgets Classic.'

Always used to work! Now I'm on a pixel 4a & Android 11, it doesn't even show up in the apps list on the phone! The widget shows but when you drag & drop, it just shows error & won't let you do anything! I liked it, not this version! Sorry!

This is one of the simplest and most useful widgets I have ever used. It is beautiful too. It goes with any theme or wallpaper (I bought the full version that has transparent background). It works well in Android 9 and 10. Hopefully it will work in Android 11 too.

Used to be awesome if you wanted to have widgets but still a usable background. Now doesn't work. OnePlus 7T Pro Android 12.

What's new

- Improved handling of date fields (less fragile in the face of doze-mode and other stuff designed to limit background processes)
- Improved calendar picker
- Fixed a bug in the calendar widget that caused it to randomly show a 'no calendar events' message
- Settings will no longer open automatically when starting a widget with a default configuration (clock, calendar, news)
- Small visual tweaks to the widgets
