This is a *really* simple widget that displays the first line or first 2 lines of a text file in a widget.
I wrote this because I couldn't find anything similar in the Android Market.
You point the widget at the text file, specify the colours and text sizes and update frequency and sit back and let it do its thing.
Potentially useful for monitoring temperature, server status, disk space, daily sales figures, or anything that can write to the text file you specify in the options.
Obviously the actual creation and update of the textfile itself is outside the scope of this widget. But this could be done with the use of a Windows batch files script or UNIX/Windows Python script.
