Minimalistic Text is an Android app that allows you to create widgets that displays time, date, calendar information, weather, and battery and system information in text format. There are several preset widgets and the layout of the widget can customizable through the layout editor. It is really hard for me to explain. I just download it and gave it a try and figured it out easy enough. A bit daunting at first glance.
Minimalist Text can be downloaded from Google Play for free. There is also a donate version of the app which will help support further development of this app.
