SiMi Clock and Weather?

No Comments »

There where a lot of request to add a weather display to SiMi clock. The good news is that it is nearly finished, the bad news is that I don’t know if it belongs there or if it would be better to make this a different (free) widget.

In my opinion only the 4×1 and the 5×1 widget are big enough to show a small weather icon + temperature. If I make a small 1×1 weather widget then all sizes could be used.

I will let you decide what it will be in the end ( maybe ;-) )

SiMi Clock – Version 1.8.5 or The night of the living settings…


I’m tired !

Last night I have done a complete rebuild of the Settings. The old view was ugly and time-consuming. Adding new settings took to long and the source was a mess.

I was experimenting with PreferenceActivity and a way to embedded them in an Activity, but this was a dead end. So I tried to build my own PreferenceActivity without the use of a PreferenceScreen resource. This was no dead end and after 6 hours I had an new Settings Dialog the way I wanted it from the beginning. The problems some users have with small Screen Devices ( HTC Tattoo ) should be fixed with the new Settings.

Hope you like it also.

SiMi Clock Android 2.1 – not yet but soon

1 Comment »

Yes there will be a 2.1 Version, but it will take some time.

With the 2.1 Sdk it is not possible to change the Backgroundcolor of a AppWidget with an Api call. I have to define a layout for a subset of  color’s.

I hope to have the version online tomorrow.
