Widget hotspots 

The widget contains several hotspots, ie, areas 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 date
Hotspot 6: Wifi icon
Hotspot 7: Settings hotspot
Hotspot 8: Battery information
Hotspot 9: Next location

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. Tap to open associated application (user defined)
  6. Tap to launch WiFi settings
  7. Minutes hotspot: Display the widget main preferences screen (alternative hotspot in case the minute hotspot is changed by the user)
  8. Battery information hotspot. Tap to view details about power status and consumption.
  9. Next location hotspot. Tap to display next location weather information on the widget.

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. someone please help!!! I have Droid Transparent clock/weather app installed on phone. Had to reinstall because stopped working. Now, I can only get it as a small app icon on my screen - not as a transparent application as before. I can't figure out how to get if from a small icon to actually being on the screen (I think it's supposed to be 1x4" or 2x4"). If anyone knows how to fix this, please email me at bolin57@aol.com. thanks!!!

  5. Can anyone help or tell me why the widget setting will only recognize 'May Calendar' and 'Google Calendar' ? It wont recognize any other calendar (eg. Exchange) that I have on my android. It will only let me select Google or My calendar. If I deselect either of these two calendars, it defaults back to google when I want to be able to select my exchange calandar.

  6. I recently download the application and I noticed that some informations about moon phases are wrongly given....for example the application reports full moon on 25th January instead of 24th and 23rd February instead of 22nd and i think that some kind of errors are randomly present for the other months. The application is good and so i hope this think will be fixed.

    Thank you

  7. I am using the app on a Nexus 6P running Android 6.0.1. The home screen widget is 4x3 transparent and I'm using Foreca as the weather provider. The temperature on the right below the weather icon is 44 degrees. On the line below the forecast - Mostly Cloudy (Now), is information about wind pressure etc. The first item on that line following the symbol of two horizontal lines with a third squiggly line above is 39F. I'm assuming this is the temperature, but I don't understand why it is different from the temperature under the weather icon. Sometimes it is the same; often it is different. I've noticed it also when I change to another weather provider.

  8. It appears that the 2nd temperature is the 'feels like" temperature and if so I understand the difference described in the above comment. It would help if the symbol was added to the symbols on the help screen.
