  1. Hi guys I just upgraded my phone from the Galaxy Note I to the III & I see that they have now done away with dual analogue feature!

    I've tried finding that app/widget on both Samsung & Google's stores to no avail....unless I haven't searched wisely I can't find it & to tell you the truth the apps with dual clocks are rubbish!!

    Any ideas on getting this feature as I also want to put it on my wifes S4 which also doesn't have it!

    1. Hi Tony Grainger,
      Thanks for coming.
      I'm so sorry to say that I don't know with the Galaxy Note III, but I can confirm that the dual clock (digital) widget is available in my GT-I9500 with Android 4.3. Simply by long tapping in the Home screen> select "Apps and widgets"> tap Widgets tab> find the Dual Clock (Digital) 2x2 widget> tap and hold the widget and then drag it to the Home screen, release to placed it> Usually the first clock will display your current location, so you can tap the second clock to display the second location.

    2. I have the same problem as Tony in that I want a dual clock, but I want it to be analog, not digital. There is a digital one on my galaxy s4, but I don't like it. I also can't find a simple dual analogue clock. Has any one had any success? (Not happy with Samsung/android at all that we only have the digital clock option. I need analogue). If any one has found a good one, would love to know!

    3. Hi BlueMythril,
      Thanks for coming.
      Well, you're right. The dual clock (analog) is not available in the default widgets list. If you don't mind, you can install third-party dual clock analog from the Play Store, e.g: WorkClock Widget.
      Once you've finished installing the widget, you can find this widget in your widget list and then add it to your home screen.
