  1. Can someone please help me. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 running android lollipop. I am trying to use a widget to display the time, weather and 'next calendar event' which works great. However the 'next calendar event is pulling from the wrong calendar. It currently pulls from my google calendar, when I want it to pull from my exchange calendar. My default calendar on my andriod calandar app is my exchange calendar. However when I go to transparent clock >Settings>Time & Date Settings>Select Calandars, there is no option to select my exchange calendar. There is only 'May Calendar' and a Google calendar. It doesnt even list my excange calandar to select from. Any other app I have on my phone allows me to select my exchange calendar. Is this a bug? can you help?

    1. even when I click on the date in the widget, the app opens my correct default calendar (exchange), however the 'next event' display is pulling from a google calendar, not my exchange calendar. There is not even an option to select my excange calendar in >Settings>Time & Date Settings>Select Calandars

    2. Hello Jeff and thanks for reporting this.

      The application only works with applications/calendars that post/enter information on the standard Google calendar database. Your exchange calendar obviously has its own calendar database so that is the reason that events are not displayed from it. Also, the calendars listed in the calendar selection are again calendars that make use of the Google calendar API, that is why the exchange calendar is not listed there. Finally, the reason the exchange calendar is opened when you tap the next event is because that is registered as the default calendar application on your device.

      I know it is difficult to change an application that you are used to, but I would suggest you try out the Google calendar. I have also started using it a long time ago and I am totally satisfied. It must also be possible to import your calendar from exchange to Google - search for it and I am sure you will find a solution.

  2. Please fix! I love the daylight duration feature on your app, especially living in Alaska where the amount of daylight per day changes drastically. Problem is the app calculates the amount of daylight wrong. The sunrise (3 am)and sunset (12 am) times are accurate, but it's calculating the duration of daylight in a negative number (- 3 hrs) instead of the 21 hrs of daylight it should be. This bug also leads the app to display my area in night time mode all the time, no matter what time of day it is. Please fix!
