Hologram 1.5.0 Released

March 20, 2021

Hologram 1.5 is here, and it's our most ambitious release yet!

This release comes with 19 new widgets! Wait, what? 19 new widgets?!!


We've been VERY busy!

We're especially proud of of this batch of widgets. Click on the links below for descriptions.

In addition to all the great new widgets, we've added new widget background effects—transluscency, blur, brightness, and saturation. We love this new feature and find ourselves using it just about every time we customize a widget. Check out our Showcase page to see lots of examples of this effect. Additionally, all clocks now have new second-hand controls (One is called "Ninja"—check it out!).

Free and Pro Versions

We are also very excited to announce that Hologram now comes in two versions: Hologram Free and Hologram Pro.

Hologram Pro comes with all available widgets (currently 52 and growing!), unlimited wallpaper downloads, over 25 beautiful pre-built themes, and the ability to store your wallpapers in your own folders.

Hologram Free is a feature-limited version. You get 10 widgets, are limited to 5 wallpapers per month, and no external wallpaper storage or pro themes.
