When I saw the update, I thought I'd pass because the widget was perfect as it was, but I forgot that my apps are set to auto update after a phone restart, so I lost the lovely old widget. My niggles are small: the news now seems to scroll up and down instead of touching to the right or left. Touching right or left is easier than scrolling. The option to do either would be great. And the clock now has a smaller font unless you resize the width enough to push other icons etc out of the way. Again, the option for the 'original' font size would be good. But the new theme setting and a few other things are good. So yeah, if you could just put back the options to enable people who loved the widget as it was before, as well as adding in the new features, that would be cool. It's funny, every now and then you realise that in the modern world you don't really 'own' software like you used to own stuff in the past - you get used to something and then it changes, just enough to be a little bit annoying :)
Fonts The new update changed the clock font, now it does not display as I want it. Would be nice to have a font size select in options.
Custom rss links not working This is the same problem that I raised with you 4 years ago when you did your last update on this app. Also there is no way to look at the 5 day forecast anymore, WHY??? THIS WAS A GREAT FEATURE. Please fix these issues, and this time please don't take another 4 years.
Once you've figured it out... You can still set up separate widgets, just customize each to what you need. Improvement would be to keep customization screen active after selecting an option. At present it disappears and you have to call it back
New update is excellent! I was worried about loss of functionality after reading the other reviews. However the widget now has expanded options while retaining it's classic appearance (once the settings have been editted). Great job guys!
Better before I got auto-updated First of, thanks for the update, I appreciate your work. That being said, as some others have mentioned, switches to enable the old fonts, or perhaps more granular control of the fonts, in addition to a switch to bring back the old news scroll behavior, would be greatly appreciated. Alternatively, releasing the tweaked and updated version as another app, and keeping this app closer to the former style might be a good option.
It's been many years since the last update. This is my attempt to catch up:
* Widget resizing and scrolling
* Totally new settings screen with new options
* The four old widgets has been replaced with just two: Large and small. They can be configured to show content from all of the old widgets in any combination you wish
Unfortunately, your old widgets will be lost when you upgrade and you’ll need to setup new ones. I recommend you uninstall the old version and re-install this one from scratch
Put any homescreen widget from your phone onto your smartwatch or Google Glass.
