Two New DashClock Extensions: Owner Info and RSS Viewer

dashclock extensions

Oh, what, you thought we’d forgotten about DashClock after taking a couple week break? Come on, you know us better than that. We have two new extensions for you to try out today, both of which could come in handy from time to time. The first is not yet in the Google Play store, but it doesn’t require any specific permissions or any other shady business from what we can tell. It’s simply a way for you to display owner info on DashClock (name, company, phone, email, etc.). 

Owner info extension:  [Download Link]

The other is an RSS extension that allows you to add any site feed to show off the five most recent articles that you may have missed. With a simple tap, it’ll take you directly to the site to catch up on the latest in news. This is not a companion app to any other RSS feed application – it acts completely on its own.

Cheers JDS and James!

    I have a rooted gnex running aokp 4.2.1 why can’t I download this ?
    The play store says my device is not compatible. I know someone (or three) here can talk me how to get going with this.
    I do plan on a new Rom either the latest aokp or paranoid if that helps my cause.

    ause.

    don’t get me wrong here, I use Dashclock, but isn’t this stuff getting out of hand? My point: we have homescreens and widgets to give info there, and now we have lockscreen widgets, and on top of that now we have dashclock and it’s extensions. What I mean is if we keep piling up stuff on the actual lock screens, it becomes its own ecosystem and you never use the actual OS inside (we already have extensions opening apps from dashclock, etc.), am I making sense? Not to mentions the privacy issues brought up before, they won’t have to get into your phone to look at your info.

      At some point it definitely becomes ridiculous. I’m attempting to keep my lock screen widgets/dash clock extentions down. I removed the camera widget, and utilize the quick launch shortcuts (camera, browser, voice search, messaging, unlock) from cm 10.1 instead.

      • Stewie

        Whew! I thought it was just me. I had the weather ext, but grabbed the free DL of the weather alert one instead, because when I unlock I have the Geniewidget front and center anyways. I'[m on MMuzzy, and quick settings is terrific as well.

    Can’t wait until I upgrade to the GS4 and use this app. Looks really good.

    Such a simple concept, yet so useful

    Does an app with all these permissions worry anyone? I know, I know, I’m paranoid. But apps like this and Swiftkey need SO many permissions…

      yes

      you are paranoid

    Can I get some love for my severe weather alerts extension for dashclock? I know I charge in the play store (if that’s a problem), but I like to a free apk there: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.katzmatt.dashclock.weatheralerts

    Even if I don’t put in all the owner information in, it still keeps the lines for text making the spacing off.

    Now if DashClock had some legit Pandora support… :-) I love this app!

    • Danrarbc

      Pandora doesn’t have legit JB support, I don’t expect anything to work well in respect to it at all anymore.

  • ChristianJohnson

    DashClock is, without a doubt, one of the best Play Store apps. Great job.

    • JetBlue

      Only good for the people who can use it since there’s still thousands of people who aren’t on 4.2

      • sirmeili

        While you can’t use it on the lockscreen, you can still use it on your homescreen correct? I have it running on both of mine (homescreen and lockscreen).

        • JetBlue

          Still doesn’t matter because its only for 4.2 so even if you wanted it on your homescreen on a phone with 4.1 you can’t due to lack of support.

          • Kiefer Lobb

            You can do some build.prop edits to download it or sideload the apk if you REALLY wanted it.

      • michael arazan

        Actually it’s millions not running on 4.2, only Nexus 4 a couple tablets and some GNex’s are, Moto, HTC, Samsung, LG etc, etc has no phones on 4.2 unless rooted and rommed. 4.2 was like around 1% when the quarterly’s cam out

        • http://Facebook.com/jooski JooSki
