Introducing HD Widgets 4

HD Widgets 4 is rolling out from the Play Store starting today. There's some good stuff in there: updated UI, more weather information, and new widgets.

We actually have more, but there's a catch...

With over 800k active installs, we can't release HD Widgets to everyone all at once. It's just too risky for our small team. Instead, we're using Google's staged rollout system to release to limited portions of users per day over the next week or so.

After the rollout, there's even more coming. We just need to make sure everyone has access to HDW4.

So what's new? Let's find out.

HD Widgets 4 beta

HD Widgets 4 is coming!

Today we released the HDW 4 beta in our beta community. To participate, simply join the beta group using a Google+ account and follow the instructions.

UPDATE: if you're using Google+ on your device, see below for links.

HDW users can opt-in to the beta group and play with the new app now. There's also a new Colourform theme pack beta available in the same group.

The UI is fresher and lighter while under the hood got a major revamp. The new app uses a side menu for fast and easy navigation. The weather screen now includes an hourly forecast graph, 7-10 day forecast, and more details. There's also new prefs, support, guides, widgets, and much more to be announced next week.

Please help us spread the word about the beta so we can round up as many people as possible to test the new app. HD Widgets currently has almost 1M active users and it's been over a year since our last major update; we really want to release the best app we can.

HD Widgets 4 is scheduled for staged roll out beginning Thursday, May 1st. We'll have complete details (and a few surprises) at that time.

Install HD Widgets 4 Beta now via the beta group.

Introducing Cloudskipper 2.0

Our classic music player, Cloudskipper 2.0 is now available in the Play Store. The new app is a massive UI overhaul designed for ICS and later devices with high res screens.

The new app has the same overall flow and feel, just brought closer to current trends and features. We've done away with the glassy design and applied a cleaner, flatter look. The fundamentals are still here: swipe based navigation, thumb-level buttons, social sharing, and our lock screen.
