  7. Hi, thanks for a great app! I have one problem, however--I can't change the time font. The option located under Appearance settings is greyed out. I have a suggestion as well: capability to adjust the hues of the shadows on text.

    1. If the font option is greyed out, this is because you are using one of the 'emphasized hour' skins. In this case, the font cannot be changed since it is only a specific pair of fonts that can produce this visual effect. We will consider the shadow color selection in a future version.

  11. Is it possible to remove ADs from Weather details screen? Any plans to add this as in-app pucrhase option (AD-free)?
    Another feature request: Add a manual refresh icon on the main widget screen to allow manual update without going into weather details.
    And one more: Add an option to scroll/switch between locations by vertical swiping on the main widget.

    1. We are planning to create an ad-free/pay version in the future. Regarding the weather update hotspot, use the temperature degrees hotspot - it will update the weather. We will consider the vertical swipe on the widget for changing weather locations; currently, you can do that using the location change hotspot (check the help file for details)

  13. Is there any chance you could include the ability to enlarge the clock font? Also, .81 isn't up at Google Play.

    1. Thanks for the note. The version information was a typo; the article should say version 0.80, not 0.81 - I have fixed this. We are also considering an option for adjusting the font size for the time.

    1. Widgets do not work if installed on the SD card. Make sure the application is installed on internal memory (not on the SD card), restart your phone and you will be able to find and use the widget.

  15. My phone is the Samsung galaxy s4. Your widget has been running my gps location service none stop in the background. This has killed my entire data allowance for the month. Thank you I will now be in overage charges.

    1. The application does not need GPS in order to detect location - GPS is optional and only provides more accuracy which is not really necessary for weather forecast. You could turn the Use GPS location option off as well as your device's GPS. There is also an option for only wifi updates - you could also use that in order to save bandwidth. Furthermore, you can set a static location and manual weather updates - that should keep data usage (as well as battery usage) to a minimum.

  16. Love the app - it's exactly what I needed for my Droid RAZR HD. I needed more vertical space on my home screen than the native Circles widget provided, but I liked the information it showed. I would like to donate something if you accept donations, but I'm not sure if you do. I tried to send email via Blogger, but I wasn't sure of your address, so I just used droid27@blogger.com. Don't know if that will work. In any case, thanks very much for this app.

  17. Thanks for such a great widget: one improvement I would be grateful for would be to have less transparency in the widget as an option. I see you have 90 and 80% transparency, but how about a 60 and 50% too? Cheers.

  18. Is it possible to add an atmospheric pressure indication (with ability to choose units, including mmHg) in Transparent clock & world weather application and its widgets?
    By other parameters (except this one) your app is probably the best on the market.

    Currently I'm using version 0.80 on Samsung GT-N7000.

  19. The app will need 342 MB of RAM. I think it is too much. Can you please fix the high RAM consumption?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. RAM usage depends on a lot of factors including the Android version, installed ROM, launcher etc. The application should normally not take more than 40 MB and that should drop to around 8 MB when garbage collection is performed by the Android system. Make sure you check the Enable optimizations option under Advanced settings and try resetting the application (manage apps, select application, Clear data) and set it up again to make sure that there is nothing wrong with the setup.

      Delete
    2. The next update will include some optimizations which will significantly improve the application's memory usage.

  20. From several weeks ago shows me the wrong location, I'm in Romania and the widget show like I would be in in Slovakia or Poland sometimes. Please solve this problem in next update. I have Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE. Thank's !

    1. This sounds like a wifi connection problem. Try connecting to the Internet with mobile data (3G/4G) and check - the location should update correctly. Try to check and fix your modem or router - it should fix the problem.

      Delete
    2. It's not wifi connection problem, location error is on mobile data connection (3G). In last few days temperature and location shows with errors and not show me my location, also connected with mobile data (3G). In present I can't use your widget....very sorry :((. Please solve the problem. I like this widget very much.

  21. What version of Android is this compatible with? I don't see that in the description anywhere. I am using it on my phone and it works great but on my husband's phone it won't update at all. He's using a Galaxy rugby pro

    1. There is an issue with GPS usage on Kitkat 4.4.2 devices. We have found the bug and we are currently testing. Turning off the Use GPS location option in application settings will fix the problem until the update is available.

  24. problems with network on my LTE nexus 5 (, ART, kitkat 4.4.2, stock
    I have a random bug with network, when i try to set Transparent clock & weather ver. 0.80 on my home screen.
    After installation it seems that is all good. But in time, i can notice, that my nexus 5 loses a network:
    1step - loses 3g/4g
    2step - in a second after 1step loses network at all
    3step - my nexus5 reconnecting to network (in a second after 2step)
    4step - reconnecting to 3g/4g
    5step - in a second again 1step
    rebooting of my device relieves of this bug FOR SOME TIME.
    Bugs are gone, when I remove Transparent clock & weather from my home screen.
    Transparent clock & weather is awesome, but does not work well on 4.4.2
    waiting a new release.

    1. Thank you for reporting this. Please check the answer to Günther (above). We have found and fixed the bug and we are currently testing. It looks like there are similar problems in other applications as well. The issue was caused by a change in the way 4.4.2 handles GPS connectivity.
