If you love using widgets and enjoy the look of a nice, simple, clean looking home screen you won’t want to delay the download of Minimalistic Text any further. This widget, which is really 11 different widgets in one, allows you to display a variety of different information on their home screen in text form. Whether you want to display the time, date, temperature, weather, or battery percentage on your screen you can do so easily with this application.

Minimalistic Text allows near-complete control of the design of the widgets, ranging from widget size, text direction, alignment, color, and nearly anything else you could think of. There are a bunch of preset designs layouts, but they don’t limit you to use only those, users can create a custom layout with the information of their choice and have that displayed instead. Once the widgets are set, simply clicking on them allows them to be changed again, so if you want to change the text size, color, background or anything else. For the amazing price of free in the Android market, this is an application that many will find use for, as there is a widget for just about everyone in it. Download links available after the break.

God I love this app, but for some reason it causes major wakelock on my evo and I haven't been able to figure out why :(

mjneid says:

I've been using this app for a while, works WONDERS with WidgetLocker. Good app in my book.

Nice pick guys.

Jaybap says:

does anyone know where i can get those text icons for the dock

mikesaimname says:

I was thinking the same thing

Spideralex90 says:

Bump, I think it's a launcher, but I'm not sure which.

davidr521 says:

Not really a launcher. Just a bunch of *very* well-placed widgets.

Coupled with SimiFolder (, you can make somethin' quite snazzy.

DrWu says:

but he replaced the dock with a different dock...has to be a launcher.

broth6 says:

I would like to know as well

Dnomyar220 says:

This looks like ADW launcher that comes with CM7. ADW allows you to change the icons on the desktop to literally any image you want that's on your SD card. You can download text icons like this by googling "ADW icon text" or something like that. You can also download themes directly from the ADW settings. Once a theme is downloaded, a long press on the icon of choice will bring up an 'edit' option. Click that, click the icon, and boom... change to whatever the flavor of the month is.

I'm pretty sure you can use ADW with sense without root, but I'm not sure. I rooted and run CM7 RC2 (need to get 3 tonight).

keiichi000 says:

Actually, it could also be LauncherPro, with the Myn's Warm skin. =) It's quite a nice look and feel on it, and runs very well, even on Sense based OS's (I have it running on my EVO).

jtdiddy says:

i'm running launcher pro, where can we get the myn's warm skin?

It's one of the Dreamlyfe sets.

ayman86 says:

gcims says:

Looks like Rainbow Wood....wait, I mean,,, I hate that they took refracted light as their symbol!

Devmil says:

Nice to see my app in android central! :D Thanks guys.

jumani says:

is this ur app ? if yes then u mind telling the exact font wallpaer and setting how to get same as in the picture ???

Devmil says:

It's my app but not my screenshot. Only Jared is able to do this :)

jtdiddy says:

@devmill, great app but maybe include some predesigned templates/skins like this one for a future update. I reproduced this screenshot on my phone but it took some time to get it done.

jtdiddy says:

what wood background is that? is it on the market?

onixblack says:

I wish I knew how he set up the time setting because thats really cool, the fact that the minutes text is bigger and different font is awesome.

Joshua Munoz says:

Jared DiPane, could you save us and tell us how you got your dock looking like that? That's all I'm after, no lie.

onixblack says:

I wish this would work on my EVO for some strange reason it was working perfectly than out of no where all of the settings ment nothing and it would just look normal

flash4yish says:

Simply... AMAZING!

Brings out the designer in all of us.

Thanks Devmil for giving us the aesthetic control on or Android devices.

ray..ray says:

Devmil - how do get the font you're using for the screen shot? I can't seem to install any new fonts..

jmr201 says:

I think the font used is on this site:

Looks to possibly be the Print Clearly one listed. Even so it has a good list of minimalist fonts. To use the fonts go to:

-Global Settings
-Fonts Folder
-Then select the folder that has the fonts in it
-Back out and then select
-Text Style
-Font Family

It should now be in the drop down box

Hope this helps!!

DrWu says:

Actually it looks more like the Caviar Dreams font.

gyroslice says:

i would love to use this as a lock screen.

Jenathi says:

Still playing with it, seems decent so far

Eazy123 says:

Excellent app. I have no issue paying the $1.37 for it. It's even more fun and customizable when you add your own fonts.

Dirt Mcgirt says:

Ok, for the life of me I can't get the weather to work? When I first installed it, it came up ok but then something went wrong and I cant get it back to work. I uninstalled and reinstalled and got the time up, but then whenever I try and add the weather it comes up in a clock format?? What am I doing wrong here?

Dirt Mcgirt says:

Nevermind, I am being a ditz today :)

jesusprice says:

thats looks pretty slick
