The progress for my new project has not been as good as I expected. Well, I blame my PC for being down for a few days last week. :)
I am not quite happy with that, so for the last "10%" of work (which is often the hardest) I worked overnight and got this finished. Here I release Nice Simple Photo Widget as the latest addition to our Nice Simple Widgets family.
Let's look at the screenshots:
Although there are not many components in this widget - just the photo frame and the photo itself, I still give you a decent amount of customization power as usual. You can customize the color, size, and opacity of the photo frame. Currently there are 3 frame sizes, but for the color and opacity settings, you can change them to whatever values you like.
For the photo settings, I couldn't find in the Android market an existing widget that supports the semi-transparent setting. So my widget might be the first one if I didn't overlook - well, at least it is not a common feature. :) Wonder what it is? Just look at the adorable dog in the second screenshot. Basically this feature allows you to have a semi-transparent photo that bends with your desktop wallpaper. The level of transparency is also adjustable.
I hope some of you would like the new widget. If you already donated through my Nice Simple Widgets (Donation) app, you will also be able to enjoy the ad-free version of this new photo widget app. Thanks again for your support!
The following is the major feature list.

- Minimalistic style
- Semi-transparent photo display on home screen (supports Android 2.2 or higher)
- Colorful and customizable photo frame
