SiMi Clock Version 2.1.1 – bloody date *#§$&%&§$%-%&

AND a new Version is in the market ……

There is a problem with some Formatsettings on some Device with some Roms. I HATE THIS !

For example if you have the Stock Rom 2.10.405.2 running on your HTC Desire then

SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat(“EEEE dd MMMM”);
Date currentDate = new Date();
dateString = formatter.format(currentDate);

will result in “1 12 12″.

If you run the same on an HTC Desire with Stock Rom 2.29.405.2 everything is working. The Result is : “Sunday 12 December” .

If you have a rom with the same problem, you have to use a predefined Date Format. I have no possibility to change this. Sorry : – (

Predefined Dateformat use

dateString = (String) android.text.format.DateFormat.format(format, new java.util.Date());

This is working correct. BUT you cannot use e.g. “D for Days of the year” with this methode.

Sorry and Have Fun

    I love this widget ! Amazing work you’re giving us there, thanks.

    I do have a small problem, though. Weather part do indeed indicate the correct temperature , but the icon remain unknown (displayed as “?”). I live in Switzerland (no idea if this information can help) and use a Galaxy Tab. Too bad, it’s the only detail that bugs me about your app.

      Could you please send me the city you live in? I would like to test with your settings. SiMi Clock shows the symbol based on the informations from yahoo.

    Love the widget. Would like to see the option to align left right or center, up or down (for date/time/weather), to remove the separator line.
