HTC Desire :: List Where Weather / News / Facebook Sync Settings Are?
Sep 14, 2010
i am trying to play around with the email and autosync features. if i were to turn off auto-sync, would the mail (not google mail) application still sync at the frequency that i set since the mail application is not under the sync list where the weather, news, facebook sync settings are?
I have News and Weather set to "Use my location". Up until yesterday, it was working fine. Now the weather tab gives me the message "No weather location available." It will only give me weather if I enter a specific location. I have GPS turned on and other applications that need to find my location, such as Compass, seem to be able to.
When I pull up the phone on my Incredible, it lists every contact in the world, including everyone from Facebook. I went into my sync settings and unsynced Facebook contacts, but they're still showing up in my phonebook.
When i first fired up the wildfire it had the news widget on the homescreen ready to go on BBC news. I liked the fact it automatically refreshed the news every so often. Now it has stopped working via the widget. I have tried removing and reinstalling the news widget but the widget just hangs on the message 'loading news'. I can still refresh the news headlines by going into the app but it seems an unnecessary hassle when it used to do this automatically. Why and how to fix this? The phone settings all lok okay.
Another issue, in addition to my other one ( http://androidforums.com/htc-desire/106176-issue-facebook-directory-facebook-htc-sense.html )
In the People list, the phone doesn't remember some of the settings I've put for people.
As in, for those that I have linked with their Facebook accounts, only few show the name taken from their Facebook profile instead of all.
It's allways the same people it forgets, no matter how many times I enter the contact and choose the name from Facebook for it - the accounts stay always linked perfectly, and it started remember the setting on couple it had forgotten earlier, but still the many same ones just forget it
Here's example of what happened (made up names) Names: Phone: Jane, Facebook: Jane Doe Phone: John, Facebook: John Doe Phone: Joe, Facebook: Joe Sixpack Phone: Fred, Facebook: Fred Bloggs
The way I set them up to show in People: Fred Bloggs Jane Doe Joe Sixpack John Doe
The way the actually show up after a minute or two of phone idling: Fred Jane Joe John Doe
After re-setuping the missing ones, couple minutes idling: Fred Bloggs Jane Joe John Doe
So it starts remembering one or few after I've re-setuped them to show the facebook name again, but it still resets to showing only the phone contact's name on some of them, no matter how many times I re-setup them to show facebook name instead
I've been looking for a simple yet powerful weather widget for quite sometime. (I don't need goofy weather animations.) The N1 news/weather widget is exactly what I was looking for, and it runs great on the Evo. The included app is also very nice, I like seeing a graph of temp change over time.
Here's a link to an Incredible thread with the apk download.
I love this app but the detailed graph which shows the temperature and probability of rain is now only showing a 1 hour scale instead of the 24 hour scale. (The graph still shows 24 hours) so I can't really tell how the forecast is changing throughout the day.
I've tried a soft reset but it didn't work. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it.
As the app was pre-installed on my phone I'm not sure how to remove it and reinstall.
I found this apk from another site so If anybody wants a nexus one weather/news widget I attached it here. It works with the Incredible. You just need to put the apk in the sd card, download AndExplorer from the market and install it.
Anyone using Genie.apk (News and Weather Widget)? I installed the widget for "Weather" and it has been working well, until yesterday. It just says "Sorry, unable to connect, Please try later." And there is a "Retry Now" Button. Pressing retry says "loading" but then returns the same message. I have deleted and reinstalled the widget with the same results. Hopefuly it is just a server issue, and will be fixed shortly.
I haven't seen this posted yet so here it is. Some of you may have seen the pics for the Google weather/news app/widget for Android 2.1 that was running on the Nexus One. Well some hackers pulled the .apk file off that phone and now have it available for us Droiders. I put it on my phone and it works great. The news app is really cool. You can create custom news topics such as "Android" or "Mobile News".
I'm hoping someone might have a suggestion for how to port the News and Weather Widget from stock 2.1 do the Incredible. I had it on my Moto Droid (now the wife's phone), and I really prefer it to the HTC Flip-clock. I like how unobtrusive it is.
I doubt anyone is as excited about this as I am but with the 2.1 update, the Moto Droid has received the Nexus One News and weather app. I have been searching for something like this for along time and there were a few out there but nothing like the one that 2.1 has just given us. I know I sound like a loon but news and weather is part of my daily morning ritual and this just made it better!
Does anyone happen to have a copy of the stock news and weather widget lying around. I really liked that widget and its not on the Rubix rom. If someone has it themed in black or with white letters that would be better. Thanks guys. Plus anyone for google search themed in black too?
Has anyone had any trouble getting the news and weather widget to work today? Usually I check it when I wake up in the morning, but it just displays 'network error'. I've tried WiFi/3G, uninstalled/reinstalled the apk, and restarted the phone with no luck.
I just got a new Eris from Verizon today and flashed 2.1 again on it and I can't find the news/weather in the market. I flashed the latest leak. Does anyone know where to get it. I had it before and thought it was in the market. I also did a search for the .apk you would think Google would put there products at the top of the page!
I accidentally selected gmail to use as the 'default' application when I want to share a story in News & Weather. I meant to select Twidroid (for tweets)... now it's 'stuck' wanting to send to my gmail. Not good. How do I release it from gmail being the default (so I can make twidroid the default)?
Is there a way to import the facebook contacts stored on my HTC Desire handset to google by utilising the auto-sync feature? I have synced my phone with facebook and now want to transfer the email addresses and birthdays of my facebook friends to google contacts. I understand from reading posts on other forums that there are a few ways to do this, such as manually importing and exporting csv files (Sync/merge Facebook contacts with Gmail contacts - Gmail Help) or by way of a script (Import your Facebook Phonebook into your Google Contacts using Greasemonkey on Firefox), but this will require a manual update whenever I have a new facebook contact. Seeing that my phone could auto-sync with both FB and Google, is there a way to automatically transfer new FB contacts to google whenever I hit the "Sync" button on my phone?
I initially rejected facebook sync as my 'funny' friends have certain numbers such as 999 as their mobile numbers. Didn't want all this crap in my phone so avoided it. Having now ported all my numbers in how can i sync facebook with certain people (my gilfriend and close m8s etc etc) but avoiding doubling up their numbers and e-mails and so on that's already on the phone. All i really need is their pic and status updatesreally
Is not available on the phone (Droid X). Yeah sure there are motoblurry widgets, but I kind of liked the Google one - slim and handy. I downloaded a copy of GenieWidget.apk but it wouldn't install - not sure if I picked a bad copy or what.
Was wondering if anyone has noticed a problem with the Google News & Weather widget today? I installed this on my EVO (Genie Widget.apk) because I love its simplicity and elegance, but today it's telling me "Sorry, unable to connect. Please try later" with a "Retry now" button. Just wanted to know if it's only my phone or everyone's? I tried rebooting, also tried stopping and uninstalling/reinstalling but to no avail. If it's happened to other people before and there's a trick to fixing it, that would be great to know too.
