HTC EVO 4G :: Hidden Temperature Widget Since Last OTA
Oct 1, 2010
I have a fully stock, most recent OTA updated EVO. Lately I can't tell what the temperature is because my weather widget has become bogged down with clouds or sunshine, rain, thunder, etc. icons over the temperature. I can't take a snapshot to post.
Can anyone please tell me the name of the app in which you get between a four and seven day forcast as a widget. By that I mean, say for instance the whole week looks like it'll be sunny, the widget will have 4 to 7 suns going across your screen with, I believe, the temperature to each day on the corner of each sun?
I trashed the pre-installed weather widget and downloaded the Weather Channel widget, but it's not refreshing the temperature. This is the same reason I got rid of the pre-installed version. Anyone know why this happens? I also have Advanced Task Killer, could this be the culprit?
The weather widget on my Incredible shows my location correctly, but the actual temperature reading is usually somewhat off of the temp from the weather channel widget (right now it is 7 degrees less). Does anyone know where HTC gets its info from? I like having the temperature displayed under the clock, but not if it is inaccurate. I also compared the HTC temp to a reading off of a wireless window thermometer and it did not agree.
Anyone know of a simple 1X1 widget that will show me the phones temperature in Fahrenheit?
I use my Dinc a lot in the car for hours at a time using GPS, Pandora and maybe other apps. Running all of them can really heat up the phone so I like to keep an eye on it. I can see the temp if I pull the notification bar down using Battery Indicator but I'd like to be able to watch this with just a glance
i haven't found a single widget that will actually show the "feels like" temperature of your location. its pretty annoying because right now where i am, theres a HUGE difference in 'normal' temperature and what the 'feels like' temperature is. does anyone know of a good looking one (aka like the htc widget or beautiful widget) that actually gives you the 'feels like' temperature?
What is your average battery temperature? When in use (surfing the web, etc.)? It seemed like the first few days my unit stayed pretty cool but now it is getting a little warm after only a few minutes use. It can get as cool as 28C when not in use, but has gotten over 40C with lite surfing/use. Normal?
I have looked at all my apps and nothing seems to be running out of the ordinary. The only thing I am not sure of is in the app "spare parts" under network usage I have a top bar that says "0" and it is full. When I try to click on it for more info it force closes. Does everyone have this (is it normal) or is it something I need to check into further? Anyone know?
My Incredible's battery was at 35 degrees Fahrenheit at idle. After playing some music via wifi using Radio Time for an hour, the temperature was 109 degrees Fahrenheit and the phone was warm. Now I know the temp would go up, but is is this abnormally high? Is this normal? Do I have anything to be worried about cause I love this app and don't want to stop using it.
I'm trying to obtain the battery temperature, the battery voltage and the battery current. The return value of the code (see below) for voltage and batteryTemperature is always 0 while the others work. I would like to know if there's any other way of obtaining this information and how. Finally, I couldn't find anything in the API for accessing the battery current... Is there any method to know its value? Code...
I have an HTC EVO. Today I accidentally left it in my car for about 2 hours in the blistering Florida heat. The phone was fine but I wanted to know if it had a temperature sensor. And if so, how do I find out the internal temperature of the phone?
And what is the temperature threshold before it damages?
Ok, so i got sick of using beautiful widgets weather home widget, but i didn't find another weather widget i liked. So i was playing around with the setting and clicked the show temperature in notification bar. I figured it would go away once i deleted the widget off of the home screen, but nope it stayed, now i've got the temperature over in the left hand corner. Now sure if anyone else has done this but i thought it was pretty cool. Here's a pic so you can see it, it has been updating throughout the day.
I'm using Evil Eris 3.0, but all the dates are in the European format (day/month/year). Is there a way to change that to (month/day/year)? Also, temperatures are reading in Celsius when I would prefer Fahrenheit. Is there a way to change that too?
Anyone having problems with accurate temps shown on the home screen. Mine were right on but today they are off 4-5 degrees if I use Accuweather or switch to Google Weather. Have refreshed and rebooted to no avail.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this problem. My temperature is not correct, it says its 13 degrees out and its in the 60s. Is there a way to fix this or should I just uninstall and reinstall.
I have an idea about using an old phone to tell me the temperature at a remote location. I need to know when a greenhouse or any remote location approaches freezing by sending an alarm to my computer or another Android phone. I thought about something similar to remote GPS locating but getting the temperature data instead of the GPS data. I could just leave my old Android phone in the Greenhouse. I know absolutely nothing about App development, I started to look at the SDK but first I needed to know Java, BASIC is as far as I ever got on a BBC.
I installed the 2.1 deskclock because the 2.0.1 was just too bright. Last night i put it in my multimedia dock. However there is no weather. It just says "weather temperature unavailable". I went into the settings and the weather settings is defualted for my zip code. it does show my location and temp. I done understand then why it does not display temp in the dock.
Is there a way or an App, for the Eris to read the room temperature. I see that it displays battery temp., but I would like for it to show me the current temp. right where I'm at, not just the temp. on the outside from a weather app.
Yesterday I rooted and installed the new Bugles Beast. While using the wifi tether app today, I noticed my processor getting fairly warm. Concerned, I downloaded TempMonitor. Without any overclocking at all, my processor was consistently running at around 44*C/111*F. The battery temperature hovers around 27-38*C. Why does my phone run so hot? Should I be worried? Some people have said the processor in the droid can handle temps approaching 100*C (!!!), is this correct?
So I'm on my #3 Captivate now.. and I need to get some other people's experience on these items. First off, my #1 Captivate would get hot while on voice call (lets say 15min), the #2 phone would NOT get hot even after a 30min call. The #2 phone also had the longest lasting battery of the 3 as well. But the phone could not see ANY satellites so back it went. #3 phone - I'm not having the best experience with - I downloaded the BatStat widget to monitor temp and battery percentage.. So I dialed my wife's phone with the battery at 35%, and temp at 36 degrees Am I in the same boat as others with these two issues combined? I will most likely return the phone again tomorrow.
