Review from Andrew Schneider
Great app I have this app on all my devices and love the look and ability to configure almost all parts of it. However, on my Nexus 7 it causes a reboot every time it updates! So three times in the last few days. So, three stars until that is fixed.
Stays "awake" and in Sync w/System Time So far, after trying a plethora of clock/weather widgets, I haven't found one (aside from the Android system clock widget) that properly stays in sync with the system title bar clock. All of the others eventually simply stop updating (yes, I've configured battery optimizations). Then, a post found via Google, put me on to this. It works exactly as it should. Not sure why no one else seems to be able to figure this out, but now I don't care. Well worth the price. (Android 6.0 Blu Vivo XL).
Compared to all other widgets like zooper, uccw, xwidget, kwgt, buzz widget etc.. This is a joke. And I paid for this. It's not like it's a free version. 4 font choices and you can't adjust or change anything other than their few presets. I'm just amazed at how basic this is. I don't hate it but I'm not in any way impressed either.
No complaints until the latest update. Whenever I go to the weather details now it asks for access to my notifications. Another reviewer was told it was a result of Google's merging of a permission they use to turn the ringer on/off. Since I never use this feature I should be able to refuse the request. However, the only way to avoid the constant request is to grant access. There is no way to refuse access even if I don't use the feature. I'm tired of lazy app developers demanding too much access.
The look is excellent, with lack of a basic feature The widget look is very attractive.My problem is that I keep traveling between 3 cities, and the widget can show only one city. I cannot switch between the cities from the widget itself. One more issue, when I click on the forecast to see the details or refresh the forecast, it keeps trying to refresh forever, unless I exit and open it again. Once more thing I would like to have, is the ability to see the weather status right from the lock screen. Must I unlock in order to see this bit of public info?
Ive been using this for about 5 years as my standalone homescreen and its always worked great. What id love to see in this app is support for canadian weather services (i.e: the weather network). American weather really drops the ball for my region. Thanks HD widgets team keep up the good work.
The time doesn't display correctly all the time. I've got to open the app to sync it correctly every so often, but still everyday. Otherwise, this app is awesome. Flick you two extra stars if you can find a way to resolve it. Edit: First time updating in a while, time is still unsynced from actual time. I had to pay for this...
- notification permission removed (whew!)
- permission dialogs moved from app launch to first time each is used
- slightly updated UI
- more bug fixes
- permission crash fixes
- notification update
- minor fixes
- blowing off some old dust...
- clock fix (hopefully?)
- switch fixes (for the ones that are still viable)
