Here's a battery widget for this summer's most talked about anime movie, The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki!
The movie, directed by Mamoru Hosoda, opens up this weekend in Japan. I don't know all the details of the movie yet, but I know it's going to be a tearjerker. As a grown man, I've got to learn to control my emotions and hold back the tears when I go out to see a movie... It's kind of embarrassing...
In preparation for the movie, I decided to download the new Wolf Children Ame and Yuki Battery Widget from Google Play!
Function-wise, it's your usual, everyday how-much-battery-do-I-have-left widget. You can place the widgets wherever you like on your homescreen. They come in three different sizes (1x1, 2x2, 4x1), each with the same basic functionality.
The widget shows the battery remaining along with important scenes from the movie that change according to the amount of battery left. You can also set the widget to only show scenes featuring a certain character.
It is a little weird that this app is released before the movie comes out, so I don't actually know what scenes these movie stills are from.
Regardless, I'll be counting down the days until the Japan release of this big anime title on July 21st!
You can also download wallpapers and the like for The Wolf Children from the NTV Market. For those of you not fully satisfied by a mere battery widget, check it out for more freebies.
