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

Can you translate to German ? Can you send me IDN, so I can check url and German chars.

Regards, Ales

Hi.
First I must say that I really like this application, but I have some problems. App itself works fine, but every time I put 4x2 Widget on my home screen it shows "Waiting for data" and when I try to update it, it freezes my phone (Galaxy sII) so I have to kill the app. Small widget doesn't freeze but I never get any data. It just sits there with "Waiting for data...". Application still freezes from time to time when I try to update this widget. Any ideas?

My weather page:

Tomaž

Does cumulus generate .txt for you ? You have xml, but I can't find txt which is necessary for widget.

Thx for reply.
I think I found the problem. Cumulus generates .txt, but my web page doesn't allow use of txt files.
I found this on Cumulus Wiki: "000webhost.com (don't allow realtime.txt in free hosting))

So I guess i need to find another web page for my weather station.

Regards, Tomaž

Hi,
I put my realtime.xml adress in the URL box but i don't know how to validate it.
If i go back and return in the URL configuration the default URL appears again.

What is the probleme ?

You need to put the realtime.xml in your Cumulus directory, add it to your Internet files for processing by Cumulus in the Internet configuration (tick the Process? box) and also tick the FTP box to upload it.

Base version of realtime.xml is this one.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Thanks for such a great app! Runs perfect on CM10 4.1.1 on my Galaxy Tab 2 7.0"!

I wish there was a good iOS application as I don't always have my tablet on me.

There should be a button...
