Widget hotspots

The widget contains several hotspots, ie, rectangles that respond when the user taps them. The following image shows the widget hotspots:


  • Hotspot 1: Minutes
  • Hotspot 2: Hour
  • Hotspot 3: Weather icon
  • Hotspot 4: Current temperature
  • Hotspot 5: Current location
  • Hotspot 6: Weekday
  • Hotspot 7: Month/day
  • Hotspot 8: Location change hotspot
The actions performed when the hotspots are tapped (clicked) are the following:
  1. Minutes hotspot: Display the widget main preferences screen
  2. Hour hotspot: Launch the default alarm application - This should work for most of the phones including HTC, Samsung, Nexus and Motorolla
  3. Weather icon hotspot: Display the weather forecast screen
  4. Current temperature: Update weather information (request new forecast from the Internet)
  5. Refresh the location
  6. Launch weekday application (select application in Advanced settings)
  7. Launch month application (select application in Advanced settings)
  8. Display the weather for the next location (if you have entered more than 1 locations)


Note about the alarm application!

If the hour hotspot (hotspot #2) does not work on your phone, (i.e., tapping it does not launch your the alarm application) you can select the alarm application (or any other application you want to launch when the hour is clicked) by doing the following:
  • Tap the minutes (hotspot #1) to go to the Preferences screen
  • Tap 'Advanced settings'
  • Uncheck the 'Default hour action' checkbox
  • Tap the 'Select hour click action' and wait for the applications to load (this can take some time, depending on how many applications you have installed on your phone)
  • When the applications list appears, locate the application you want to launch and tap it
  • Press the Home button to return to your home screen


Note about task killers

If you have a task killer application installed on your device, exlude the widget from its auto-kill list, otherwise the widget will stop working.

  1. I love this widget, but have a problem.
    I want to have two widgets on my home screen.
    #1: should show the time and weather for my current position.
    #2: should show the time and weather for a fixed position.
    Problem is that when I change the settings in ONE widget, then BOTH change.
    How do I avoid that?

    1. This is not possible to do. What you can do is use just one widget on your home screen and add your second location as an additional location. You can then user the location-change hotspot to switch between the two locations time and weather.

    2. If it can't be done, why would I launch up to 4 widgets then?
      It is pointed out on Google Play that it's possible.
      I find that description confusing.

    3. You can do that from the weather forecast page, like I said before. Try it and you will see that it is better. Having two widgets running on your device for something that can be done with just one of them is not right. Why consume twice the battery if you can see the weather for any number of locations from just a single widget?

  2. Love the app, but I just purchased the Note 5. I use the 5x2 setting, but it appears way too small on my screen. Any chance of a larger version?

    1. Thanks Kris.
      Try resizing the widget - that should do what you want. To resize the widget, tap and hold on the widget, choose resize and drag to resize. Email us if you have any more problems.

  5. My app was recently updated to 2.31.09 and I now have persistent weather notifications on my status bar and can't figure out how to disable them. I also didn't find a FAQ for disabling them. Can make a short post on how do turn the weather notifications off?
