All is displayed now.
The fonts may be a little bit bigger: the texts are almost not legible, the titles ( Today, Yesterday, records)and the values are legible.
the text + value use only 2/3 of the screen with.(bad :oops: picture attached)

Regards,


Try version 2.4 it should be better.

Hi Ales,

Tha main application display is good now. :clap:

There is just a little text problem in widgets:
the wind speed display is half masked by the bottom of widget frame and refresh time and date is displayed at the same place (over the wind speed).
I hope you understand what i mean because it's difficult for me to send you a picture :(
A little drawing of the bottom of widget:

The other things are visible.

Try new version - it might fix widget for small screens.
Also include polish translations.

Hi Ales,

4x2 widget is fine now.
2x1 widget seems to be to small to contain all datas (same problem with wind value ovecrossing timestamp but no really sure that there is enough place)

Thanks for your work :clap:

Yes, I have only changed 4x2 widget. On 2x1 text is to small to be readable (I think).

On android tablet, the 4x2 does not fit on landscape orientation, its fine on portrait. Could we have a tablet optimised version please?

This is a really nice app. I do know some authors who can not put pay apps on Google Play use the Slide Me market so you might want to check that out.

I am having one problem that I sure is my fault. I do not have the forecast image. It shows the sunset/sunrise image and time but not the forecast. When I connect to other weather servers it shows up but not on my so I suspect a configuration error on my end.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?

Edit: Of course I figured out where the problem is right after I posted this. For some reason my forecast_nr in my realtime.xml is negative. I verified this is the problem by stopping the updates and removing the - in front of the number.

Sorry to ask what is I suspect a basic question.

Where do I find a template to produce the realtime.xml file please? I assume I need to configure it in the Internet Settings/Files screen, but I can't find a template that will produce a realtime.xml file that works. The Android app just sits there at the "Waiting for data..." page. The widget works ok though (though it is reading the .txt file).

Please could someone post a link to a template?

Much appreciated.

Andrew

Small question to the author. I have the app installed on a Galaxy S3 mini. The widget part works great even on the update function, but on trying to load the app it seems to stall on the "Waiting for data" screen, even selecting refresh doesn't load the data ?

I've downloaded the realtime.xml file and the sunbird.txt file and placed them in C:/cumulus/web and set cumulus to upload to website and they upload, but the android widget won't load data and I get the following error with the xml file:

This page contains the following errors:

"error on line 4 at column 13: StartTag: invalid element name
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error."


http://lillypilly.gregoryolsen.com.au/realtime.xml
http://lillypilly.gregoryolsen.com.au/realtime.txt
http://lillypilly.gregoryolsen.com.au/sunbird.txt

Need help

Why isn't it working?

Your realtime.xml and sunbird.txt files contain unprocessed web tags - have you ticked the 'process' box for those files, so that Cumulus converts the web tags to actual data?
