Chronus is an Android app that displays a clock widget on your homescreen, while supporting multiple 3rd party plugins for advanced functionality. These can include RSS feeds, inbox email counts, reminders, calendar appointments and more.
Adaptive icon (Android 8.0+)
Android 8.0 (Oreo) introduces Adaptive Icons, a feature that clips app icons to OEM-specific masks to maintain consistency across the operation system. In order to adhere to the guidelines and allow for motion effects, Chronus' icon consisted of these two layers.
The icon was designed to make use of motion effects. The unconventional structure and the several cutouts and patches were intentionally put there to create a unique parallax effect where the background shape exists only within the boundaries of the clock pointers.
Tap or hover on the icon below to see the effect in action.
