Ales, with the 2 X 1 widget, I find sometimes it does not update for many hours, even though I have update time set to 5 minutes. Going to the app shows current realtime data, but returning to the widget, it has not updated. The 'tap the widget' options are currently: 1/ run the app, or 2/ update the widget- in which case you would need to have the shortcut to the app on your screen as well as the widget in order to get to the app.
Can these be combined, so that tapping the widget takes you to the app, as well as updates the widget? Also, perhaps have a 1 minute option for auto-updating too?

thanks.
Done

This is a great app. I no longer use the cumulus realtime widget.

Done (except solar/uv in the main app. In next version)

Version 1.8 available.

Regards, Ales

Nice work Ales :)

The time of max and min temperature and max wind would be nice in Today and Yesterday, there is plenty of space for it, at least on my Motorola Razr screen.


Do you have any plans for a paid version with no advertising?

Thanks Ales, for not only implementing the requested enhancements, but for the speed in which you did it.

And again Gordon has taken the words from my mouth. I would definitely pay to have a version without advertising.

There is no time in xml file. So If some future version will have time in it, I will implement it. If your xml file have time in it, please send me link and I will include it.

Sorry, but Google doesn't allow me to put paid version on googleplay. (They don't allow selling from Slovenia)

That seems rather biased to me. Just because a person lives in a "Google-defined" country, you can't charge for an app? I don't pretend to understand their reasoning.

However, and I don't know how much trouble this would be, or even what's involved, but PayPal has a way where you can put "Donate" button as part of your sig in your postings here (and/or on a website.) I have contributed to a number a developers via this method. I click on their "Donate" button, it takes me to PayPal where I log in to my account. I specify the amount I want to donate (you can even set a minimum amount) and click, click, it goes to the developer.

Just a thought.

I don't understand, you are offering an android app and you don't provide the 3 files that the app needs? Could you explain this, sir?

Files you need must be on (your) server. So, author can't offer those files.

Thanks' for that great tool. realy nice rendert and funcion is perfect.

I just have to add two notes I noticed yesterday during installation and may help:
- App is not working with Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) these have to be converted in ACE-Strings to work
- In widget some special character like German mutated vowel are note working. In the app itself it works fine
