How often have you thought: “Just how many coffees did i drink today?”
or: “How many pushups was i supposed to do?”
There are a lot of numbers to keep in mind during the day. These little widgets help you keep track of all those numbers.
Keep one to check how many calls you made. Or make one to count how many times your co-worker uses the phrase “oh my god” during a day.
So i needed an excuse to play with some new android-libs. It’s also the first time i’m writing an Android AppWidget. The API is a bit of a disappointment, to be honest. There’s lots of things you have to work around, like setting the background color of a widget, for instance. Those things should not require a programmer to jump through hoops to implement.
