URL Image Widget

Simple widget that displays an image from an URL on your homescreen. Great for getting a weather widget with data from a trusted source (needs a fixed image url).

Features:
* extraction of images from RSS-feeds (like dilbert)
* downloading on Wifi only
* widget resize
* cropping of downloaded image

Tested providers (see screenshots):
* meteoblue weather
* dilbert daily strip
* onvista charts
* xkcd Comic
* extract images with non-static URLs

Warning: This is a developer snapshot! Use at your own risk and don't vote negative if something is not working as expected.

Legal notice: all content on my screenshots are copyrighted by someone else. This app provides no content, you should ask the owner of the image for permission.

Known Bugs:
* config sharing only partly implemented

Missing features:
* choose transparent color

Example for using non static image URLs:
URL: http://kernel.org/
Filter: eu.png
Will select the first image of that website with eu.png in its URL.
