Missed It!

Posted by on Jul 5, 2011 in android, cool apps, fave widgets | 0 comments

The Missed It! app currently runs for $0.99 on the Android Market. I’ve used this very reliable app to show concise data on missed calls, sms messages, and emails (Gmail). The same thing can be accomplished by pairing Tasker and Minimalistic Text – unless, of course, the output doesn’t create an error (I will demo my woes on that later).

But the Missed It! app also provides ease of customization to those who are not rooted, and therefore haven’t changed system fonts. There are plenty of options for changing the layout, static tests, text padding, and a whole lot more. ┬áHere are two examples of using this app on two different themed lockscreens:
