A couple of years ago, TypographyTime was released as a LockInfo plugin to stylize the date and time on the lock screen. Recently, this plugin was cloned to work as a standalone Notification Center widget. This will allow you to get the same typography design for the date and time right within Notification Center. TypographyTime for Notification Center works exactly as you’d expect. Once installed, you’ll need to go into Notification settings and enable the widget. From here, you can move the widget around within Notification Center, but I prefer to leave it at the top. Unfortunately, there are no settings to configure for TypographyTime and it takes up a lot of space. Because of this, you’re losing a good portion of Notification Center that would normally show notifications. That may be a minor complaint, but I wish the developer had implemented the option to adjust TypographyTime’s size. Maybe we’ll see that feature in a future update. In my opinion, like the LockInfo version, TypographyTime for Notification Center looks very nice. If you’re a fan of the original plugin, I’d definitely give this tweak a chance. Currently, TypographyTime for Notification Center is available for free in the BigBoss repository.
