Problem with weather updating on all weather applications

Since July 30th, a weather server related problem has caused all of my weather applications to stop updating the weather. The affected applications are Transparent clock & weather, Sense flip clock & weather, Sense V2 flip clock & weather, 3D flip clock & weather, 3D sense clock & weather and Digital clock & weather.

I am currently working on an update for each of the applications that should fix this problem. Please wait until the update for your application is available on the Google Play store. There is no need to uninstall the application, reset it, delete the cache or locations. Once you get the update everything should start working again.

If you are reading this, please tell anyone you know (who is using any of the above applications) about this.

Update (July 31st)
An update has been published for all of the above applications on the Google Play website and the problem should be resolved when you upgrade to the latest version.

Transparent clock & weather update just released



A new version of the Transparent clock & weather application has just been released. Version 0.55 includes some important bug fixes and a new weather icon set. The list of changes follows:

  • Added new weather icon set
  • Fixed SD card free space display for ASUS Transformer devices

Please note:

Before reporting a time freezing error please make sure that you are not using any task killer or battery/memory optimizer application. These type of programs kill background running processes in order to save battery and free memory. In doing so, they also kill the application's time updating process, that is why a lot of users experience time freezing problems. If you are using such an application check if it is possible to add the Transparent clock application to the white list (or the exclude from auto-killing list) of the related program (check the settings).

If you have any problems please send us an email.

Thank you for the support.
