Minimalistic Text is a widget app that displays information in a minimalistic way.
It can be configured to display time, date, battery and weather information. The layout of the widget is highly customizable through the layout editor.
Minimalistic Text is heavily inspired by BattStat and Clockr but adds extreme flexibility.

If you have any problems, write me an email!
APP2SD (especially hacks) is a very very bad idea for a widget. It has a reason that Minimalistic Text doesn't offer this feature! The home screen get's loaded before the SD card is mounted. Keep this in mind!
Please don't use the comments for feature requests or bugs. You can write me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). (Of course you still can rate lower due to bugs or missing features)
1) add a Locale variable to your layout and set the variable name (click it)
2) in Tasker select Plugins -> Minimalistic Text for an action

Last comments from Android Market
Now used for almost everything on my homescreens. Wonderfully classy.
I love this widget, a lot. It's simple ,stylish, and simple to set up!
What good is saving stuff under preferences if I can't access or activate it later? Good idea, but hard to "use."
Like it lots but confused. Dev,says so many times to email yet direct response to comments in app description?? Just let it go.. buh I LOVEdisWIDGET
Why does it keep saying "fog" as the weather condition? I live in the desert...
awesome but whats the name of the menu bar on the example screens?
Doesn't find my correct location.
Works beautifully. Settings screen took a bit to get used to but is well thought out. Thanks for your work!
Nevermind. You must use the back button to exit settings for the widget to appear.
