As you have probably noticed, the translations in this version are far from complete for many languages. All the languages supported in Fancy Widget (Pro) have been ported and made available in this update. Since we added a lot of new features in Fancy Widgets v3, many new phrases need to be translated. You may help us complete or improve the translation for your language by visiting the online translation system: Fancy Widgets Translation.
For users who purchased the pro version from the Amazon Appstore, we are still contacting them to work out a solution. Sorry about the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.
If you like the digital clock skin from v3.0, here it is: Fancy Digital Clock
