Android :: Launcher Pro And Beautiful Widget (Home) Animated Forecast

Jun 10, 2010

I have an Eris and running 2.1 (not rooted) Just started using Launcher Pro. One problem to resolve. I installed Beautiful Widgets - Home as I thought it acted the same as it does on HTC Sense. The location is good, the time is good but when I touch the weather part of the widget, it stays static. I expected to get to see the "forecast" for the next few days.

Also I expected it to be somewhat animated when it is invoked (fog, rain drops, sun throbbing, windshield wipers) as that's the way it is on HTC. I thinks some of you are using this app here on LP. Can you tell me what settings to use to get these features (animated weather and weather forecast) to work? Do I have to download and use a skin other than the default one? If this is a Beautiful Widgets developer question. Does someone have the developer's email as it's not provided in the site (in France I believe).

Android :: Sweeter Home 2 And Beautiful Home Widget

Jan 16, 2010

I'm just starting to get the hang of Sweeter Home Preview 2. And as many of you already know, some widgets (like Beautiful Home) won't update consistantly. I'm going to email the dev my finding so hopefully he can rectify this issue. But in the meantime, you can try this fix/work-around. My Beautiful Home widget has been keeping the correct time for almost 12 hours now ... through many edits, screen changes, and reboots. That was not the case just yesterday. What I finally did was experiment with the "Layer Level" parameter of everything on the screen. What I found was that if the Beautiful Home widget was on the highest level (10), that it will update with no problems. In fact, I have no other Layer Level 10 items on the screen where I'm using that widget.

HTC EVO 4G :: Beautiful Home Widget Each Screen - Does It Consume More Battery?

Jun 15, 2010

This would apply to any widget. It just so happens that on most screens (all but my home screen) I have the "Beautify Smaller Home" or whatever its called at the very top. I like easily seeing the time from each screen. And I think it looks nice. Beautiful might be a stretch... but I understand the marketing.But the hypothetical question still applies. If I had the "music" widget or the "messaging" widget on EVERY page. Would that widget use more battery than just one instance? In other words, does EACH INSTANCE of the widget poll for data? Or does the process just poll for data and then each widget just repaints itself on its respective screen as appropriate? I need to know! I'm wondering if I disable "beautiful home" from all but one screens if my battery life will improve.What do you think? Are there any hard-core techies out there that can help me figure it out?

HTC Desire HD :: Weather Forecast On Home Page

Nov 24, 2010

Does anyone know who supplies the pre-installed weather app on the Home page of the Desire HD? I have found that it is not very accurate; my friend's app on his iphone (Yahoo, I believe) is better. Can you change the standard one on the HD? Also the standard app does not support many towns in the UK.

Motorola Droid :: Beautiful Home Running By Itself With Sweeter Home Active

Jan 17, 2010

One thing that's bothering me about SH... I don't use Beautiful Home anymore. In fact, I've removed all beautiful widgets from all my home screens and home screen replacement apps. Yet for some reason I get the weather thing in my status bar as if I had Beautiful Home running. Which means it's somehow being run without being told to. And it only does this with Sweeter Home.

My wife's Incredible is coming in tomorrow and she said she saw a video with an Incredible that included an animated weather widget.

LG Ally :: Beautiful Widgets Landscape For Smaller Home?

Oct 26, 2010

Is anyone else having a problem with Beautiful Widgets smaller home weather after the last update? I noticed on my wife's ally, when you'd go to landscape, the widget does not fill the screen end to end like it used to. It cuts off about 1/2" from each side of the screen. I have an ally also and mine goes end to end. I'm still using an older version of Beautiful Widgets though. I reverted hers back to an older version and it works like mine, going end to end, as it should. I see in the release notes on the newest release that they 'fixed' a landscape bug on smaller home weather, but it seems their fix made it not work correctly on the ally. I can't seem to find any way to contact them about this.

To elaborate on my already long post, I'm using launcher pro plus, and when I highlight the widget to resize, the highlighted box DOES go end to end. The widget does not. WTF? Is it a skin issue maybe? Something is weird.

Android :: Want Live Home / Adw Launcher

Sep 6, 2010

I saw Live Home today in the market. It looks exactly like ADW Launcher, but allows use of icon packs and adds a few more feature which I don't use (cube transitions between home screens for example). But Live Home allows icon packs ... which is big. Anyone have an opinion about this? ADW seems very stable. And I don't want to use Live Home if he is ripping off ADW (he did say it is based on ADW thought)

HTC Desire :: Can I Run A Home Launcher From Sd Card?

Nov 28, 2010

I`v tried a few different replacement home programs & at the moment quite like Desktop. I did like ADW, but the launcher and any themes were `stuck` in the internal memory - which I`ve got precious little left. Desktop seems to run great - but - when I connect the phone to the PC on a usb the launcher stops (as the sd card is unmounted). When I remove the usb I can reselect the launcher but the widgets disappear. Is this something specific to Desktop, the desire, android or just me ! I didn't seem to have a problem when running Launcher pro.

HTC Incredible :: Why To Use A Launcher / Home Screen?

Aug 20, 2010

Sorry if this sounds silly, but what are the benefits of using a launcher or home screen replacement (launcherpro, ADW, etc?) I mean, they look like they are copies of Sense UI, so I really do not see the benefit if you are on an HTC phone. I could definitely see if for other Android devices, but I am just confused as to what the benefit is.

Android :: Launcher Home Screen

Sep 21, 2010

I don't have the accurate terminology and maybe that's a part of my question. In the android home screen, we have the ability to slide the screen left and right and display multiple pages. Each of these pages has a different set of icons. in the mac world these would be called "spaces". What is it called in the android world. More importantly is there a standard control that can be used to achieve this effect ?

I tried a force stop on launcher pro but that didn't work either. I don't wanna un install launcher pro bc I have it set up nicely, I just want to set up the stock home for fun and giggles.

Android :: Imitating Launcher / Home Screen

May 26, 2009

Is there an easy way to imitate the Launcher look and feel? I mean having three full screen views which can be switched between by sliding/dragging right or left. I had a look at the source code to see how it was done and found that the magic is done in the "com.android.launcher" package. I take it that it is inadvisable to use the same classes as those in that package due to them not being part of the official SDK and therefore up for change at any point? If so, is there a good way to get a similar effect from the official SDK? The Sliding Drawer would have given me what I needed if it was possible to have more than one defined, but that seems to not be supported. (the handles stack on top of each other) So you know what problem I'm trying to solve, here is some background: I've got the an application which shows a photo. I want to maximize the viewing area of the photo so it takes up most of the screen. At the same time I'd like the user to easily be able to bring into view the metadata of the photo. That is where I wanted the 'slide android view into view' functionality similar to that found in the Launcher and/or the Sliding Drawer.

HTC EVO 4G :: Home Screen Button Now Asks For Which Launcher Want To Use

Jul 22, 2010

For all of us using SenseUI, hitting the home screen button will bring us... home, for lack of a better word.

However, recently, hitting the home screen button brings up a dialog asking whether I want to use SenseUI or the stock Android launcher. I'm aware this normally happens if you go into applications and clear the defaults for SenseUI.

However, I haven't done this. Moreover, even when I tell it to "save" the default for SenseUI when the dialog comes up, it seems to "forget" it after some time and asks for it again.
