If you have published any DashClock extensions, contact me and I will send you the unlock key for free.
• Some extensions, such as DashNet , needs to update its extension description meta data in the AndroidManifest to allow other 3rd party apps to be able to read its data. If you added an extension to Better DashClock and its information is not showing up, you should contact the extension developer to ask him/her to add the "worldReadable" meta data to its extension as followed:
You should also point the extension developer to this link: http://api.dashclock.googlecode.com/git/reference/com/google/android/apps/dashclock/api/DashClockExtension.html
• It may not be compatible with some older devices due to bugs in some versions of Android, please try it before you make the purchase. If it''s not compatible with your device''s default launcher, try it with a 3rd party launcher such as Better Launcher
• To use this widget as a lock screen widget on Android 4.4 KitKat, you need to enable a setting first https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDCJpi-vv7s
