Tired of the clock widgets that you usually see on your smartphone? If so, then you might as well get some new ones and perhaps, you could opt for those with fully customizable options. Speaking of which, there is this particular app that lets you choose from its wide selection of stylish and modern widgets and it even has a built-in clock widget editor. This app is called Beautiful Clock Widgets.

Out of all the clock widgets that I’ve tried so far, none of them were able to offer the right widgets that I could use on a regular basis. Besides, it’s not that easy to find a reliable app that can offer a wide selection of clock widgets themes that are pleasing to the eye.
So when I first learned of Beautiful Clock Widgets, I decided to give this app a try. It turned out that this app does not only give you one or two widgets but you can also customize each widget according to your liking so you’re free to edit and change the widget text color, background color, etc. Moreover, the widgets are available in different sets and sizes so you have a lot of options.
Do take note that once you have selected the widget that you like (ex. a 2×2 widget), you can no longer change its size. The size of that widget is already fixed but you are free to place or move that widget to a different location on your home screen. You should also keep in mind that some widgets would require you to provide your location but if you do not want to activate your phone’s GPS, you can manually provide your location.
What I like about this app is that it is very easy to use plus the widgets are very stylish and modern-looking plus you can choose from analog clocks to digital clocks. Compared to other apps, the variety of widgets that you can find in Beautiful Clock Widgets isn’t limited plus you can use as many widgets as you like. So if ever you need to monitor the time on different cities or locations, you can set the widget to show the time for a particular place or time zone.
All in all, I can say that this app does its job well and it pretty much does what it is intended to do. It’s just that when you place more than one clock widget on your home screen, your phone’s battery level could easily go down so you’ll have to recharge your phone more often than usual.

Not only does it offer a lot of clock widgets – it also allows you to customize your widget’s text and background color.
