Edit: PEBKAC, see edit below.
That shiny new widget we released today seems to fail to show up on certain HTC devices, the One S and One X seem to be affected.
After an initial wild guess that it might be, somehow, too large, I've sent a user a test build with a smaller 3x3 default size, but as it didn't help, the issue is somewhere else.
I know there are some Android devs out there on G+, anyone knows how a widget can break on only the latest HTC devices?
Diagnostics: it's just not there. The logs show a list of CombinedWidgetProvider saying addAppWidget, with the ComponentInfo of other apps+widgets, but not the com.digibites.calendar one.
We've updated the app to be installed on the internal memory only, as the problem seems to be caused by installation to the SD card. That workaround worked for a Galaxy Y and the One X samples we have.
Yell if you still have issues.
no plus ones

Failed to show up on my Sony Xperia Sola (still running stock gingerbread) too.
I switched back to my stock laucher and could use the widget.. returned to custom launcher and the widget now works fine. Any chance HTC Sense might be the problem?Oct 7, 2012
- , did you try updating to 0.2.3a, and if it still fails to show up, reinstalling or even rebooting the phone? You can also check the app info page in settings to make sure it is installed to the internal storage.Oct 7, 2012
- Yeah I updated and it didn't work. After the quick launcher switch (mentioned in my edit above), it all seems to work now though. I guess a reboot would've worked too. The widget looks excellent.Oct 7, 2012
- Thanks. The issues was us allowing the app to be installed on the SD card. The update fixed it, but the system is kinda lazy and don't always rescan widgets. It always do so tho on a reboot, so that's why I recommended it, I guess a launcher switch worked too.Oct 7, 2012
- Yeah, you generally can't do widgets from apps installed to SD.Oct 9, 2012
