Maximus Weather Clock for HTC EVO combines battery, weather, and clock widget into one

Evo-maximus-clock If you're running low on home screen space on your HTC EVO 4G, then you're probably looking for ways to consolidate. Folders are a great way to reduce the amount of apps taking up rows and rows of space, but what about widgets?

The new Maximus Weather Clock, released over the weekend, can help you with that. It combines a battery, clock, and weather widget into a single widget that asks for nothing more than a 2×2 spot on your home screen and use of your GPS radio to get you the weather forecast. The battery meter is that green ring you see around the clock; it forms a circle when the battery is full and becomes less complete as the power drains.

Beyond being able to change the frequency of weather updates and select a URL or an app to open when the widget is tapped, Maximus Weather Clock is a good example of "what you see is what you get." There are currently no additional clock skins, weather graphics, or battery meter colors/styles to choose from. The existing design should blend in pretty nicely with most wallpapers, themes, and home screen setups, but some choices would be nice to see in a future update.

There are two versions of Maximus Weather Clock, one for free and one for $1. Both are identical right now—I don't know if the donate version will eventually have additional exclusive features—but since I personally think it's important to support devs, I think it's worth going for the donate version if you try the free one and end up using it.
