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 location
Hotspot 6: Weekday
Hotspot 7: Month/day
Hotspot 8: Change 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. 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 (in case you have more than one locations specified)



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.

    2. whats the difference between v1 and v2? also, if I may suggest a bigger clock font by about 1/4".

      Delete
    3. The difference is the look of the widget. V2 has bigger flaps, larger digits and also includes a 4x3 size widget.

    1. Make sure the application is not installed on the SD card, restart your device and you should be able to find the widget.
