[Guide] How to install the new HTC Sense 6 weather and lock widget on any Android

HTC Sense 6.0 (sixth-sense) UIHTC Sense 6.0 sports a new weather and clock widget that made a debut on the HTC One M8 flagship. The new interface is cleaner, with flatter looks, and has received a default widget to match. The weather and clock information is displayed on white background, and doesn't throw too much info at you, like some other clock widgets we know.

Obviously the best way to experience this on your Android phone is to purchase an HTC One M8. However the developer community on the XDA forum have a solution which allows you to install the new Sense 6.0 weather and clock widgets on any Android device.

Keep in mind that this is just a mockup, but it works quite well for what it is supposed to do, and the appearances are very close. So if you are bored with your current home screen layout and want to try something new, check out the following step by step guide on how to get the HTC sixth-sense experience on your Android device.

  1. Download the Ultimate custom widget (UCCW) tool from Google's Play Store, and install it;
  2. Download the HTC One M8 Clock UCCW skin from the Play Store, and hit "open";
  3. Go to the widget section on your device, find a 4x2 UCCW widget size, and drag it to the desired homescreen;
  4. When you see a list of available skins, choose the 12-hour or 24-hour HTC One M8 Clock UCCW skin;
  5. You now have a very "sixth Sense"-like clock on your homescreen; hit the widget's settings, if you want to change the default location, or switch from Celsius to a Fahrenheit scale.
