    1. Thanks for the feedback. We are going to release an update soon with some important memory optimizations

      Delete
    2. 149 MB RAM after 26 hours uptime, this is ridiculous and absolutely unacceptable. After this spike process/service was restarted and starting again from 8.5 MB.
      Android 4.1.2, Optimus L9 II.
      Beside that, it's great app(widget).

    3. Memory usage depends on individual device, launcher and ROMs but like I said, next update will include some optimizations which should significantly improve memory usage on all devices

    4. Also the same issue in my case:
      Overall it is very good application (widget) offers lot of customization - deserves 5 ​​stars, but there is only one big fault: consumes a lot of RAM up to 200-250MB. First when you set will start with 4-5MB RAM and after few minutes 8-10MB, after few hours 70-80MB ..... after 24h - more than 200MB. Optimisation is always turned ON (no change if is OFF - the same issue). I tried on htc Wildfire S OS v2.3.5 / 512MB RAM, and Prestigio 4055 OS v4.1.1 / 512 MB RAM. In both cases consumes more than 200 MB after one day usage. I tried to reset few times but the next day the same situation.

    1. You are probably doing something wrong. Please follow the instructions on this page and email us if you have any more problems. The application and widget work fine on all Galaxy S series, including Galaxy S4.

  3. I set the clock to display 24 hours but after the recent update, it keeps showing 12 hours. Android 4.3, SGS3

    1. Now it's not showing 24 hours but it's showing the opposite time. It's 1145 hrs my local time now but the clock is showing 2345 hrs instead.

      Delete
    2. If you have set the time to 24 hour display, then it should show 23.45 (24 hour display is when the time goes from 0 to 24 hours). If you want it to display 11.45, uncheck the 24 hour display option.

      Delete
    3. I want it to show 24 hours format, it's just showing the wrong one! It's midnight my local time now, so it should be showing 00:00 but instead it's showing 12:00! Before the recent update, this didn't happen.

  5. Battery Drain on 0.81.04 linked to GPS (maybe in previous version too)...

    I found this post in reddit "Transparent weather clock using a lot of battery via GPS" (after noticing I've the same problem, google text to find it)

    Please fix this, and in the meantime a workaround would be welcomed !

    Thanks

    1. We are working on a major update of the application. We will check this issue as well. In the meantime, un-check the Use GPS location option in the application - it is not necessary since the application can still detect your location using the cell or wifi network.

  6. Best app on the market, yet after the update I'm suffering from the same issue as many other users: time is not updating untill the weather is updated. I didn't have this problem in previous versions and yes I have unchecked the box where it tells, you might experience time update issues. When fixed, 5 stars again.

    Note 3, rooted.

    1. Please reset the application (manage apps, select app, Clear data) and set it up again. There should be no problems with time freezing. If you still have problems, make sure that there is no task killer or similar application running. Email us for more help.
