Release Notes:
OpenWeatherMap seems to have a bug in their geolocation API - they return different locations for the same coordinates.  We have logged the bug with them but there is no committed resolution from them.  As a workaround, if you cannot live with it, use a custom location.

 - Bug fixes
 - REMOVED! - Analog clock

_Older versions were functionally equivalent to CyanogenMod's cLock._

Thanks. And the Z1s has an issue where the other calendars disappear in the sync list. Added Google calender and resynced everythingand it seems all good now. Had to redo the widget also but the colors are they now.

Thanks for the prompt reply

Hi David.
In your New Features Video one can see that you add the News Feed in the Chronus app (4.3.1) and this change is then directly reflected in the widget.
I can reproduce this behavior on my Nexus 7 (2013) with the stock ROM. Unfortunately this doesn't work on my Samsung S2 (i9100g) running on CM 10.1.3. In order to make changes to the widget, I always have to remove the widget, add it again and define the settings then in the upcoming app. Changes made later on are not reflected on the widget. This has always been like that on my S2.
As this is the only widget I am using I was never sure if I can expect the changes to be applied directly.

Can you tell me if this should work or if there is something I have to consider while making the changes?
If you should need more information about the phone, please let me know.

Best regards,
David

+David Beck +Simon Putt glad to hear its solved for you.  I suspect it was a corrupted config left over from a previous update via the Play store but its impossible to know exactly what caused it and when

Removing a widget doesn't remove the notification. I had to reboot to clear it.

I have set a Daydream "widget", a Clock + Weather widget for the launcher and a Weather widget only for the lockscreen. I have only enabled the weather notification for the Clock + Weather widget and the others are disabled. I still get three weather notifications in my notification center.

+David van Tonder Sorry for answering very late. I think the problem has vanished after I got your 4.3 update, so far everything is fine now (No multiple Notifications showing up). Maybe I just made a mistake myself. Still, thank you for your time!✌

Backup and restore is great feature but for folks that flash new ROMs constantly may I suggest a way to specify where the backup goes (select folder location for backup) this way we can put the back up on external or SD card and restore from there when configuring new ROM. 
That would be icing on the cake. 

Thanks.

Maybe they were less reluctant to use hacks, given they have a couple of other hacks in place as well ;) (e.g. transparent status bar on pre-Kitkat devices)

+Daniela H. Please provide more details of how you have it configured. What widgets have you placed and, in weather settings, what are the notification preferences set to.

About this community

Functionally the same as the Cyanogenmod cLock widget and brought to you by some of the same developers, this independently released, standalone widget takes back its original name, Chronus and brings the same elegant look and feel to the broader Android community.
 
Any chance for the option to change font/size? For example, being able to use the Roboto Condensed font to better match KitKat.

Is it planned to integrate Google task into calendar widget? That would be perfect!

Not any time soon. I'm not even sure if task has an api one can use. but we will look into it.

Hi, small suggestion: Give the option to check number of unread articles on feedly rather than downloading them all into the cache. Also allow it to shortcut to feedly when pressed. Would be very useful for those on limited data contracts! It would also be much better for battery as it wouldn't have to wakelock for so long to pull the data over my 2G/3G variable connection.

Where? I have tried unticking 'use internal viewer' but it always opens in the internal viewer regardless. Thanks

Hi! A suggestion: what about to see the next number of selected events in calendar view as an option? No matter if the events are for the next day, week, month or even for the next year! Like that, we could see always the same number of events in the widget. Thank you!

So we wouldn't get ugly half cutted events in our widgets :)

Hi folks!

Is there any chance that you add a widget with a forecast only not including the icon for present day?

Just as on the attached screenshot. It's the tird one. I managed this just by resizing it till only the forecast is shown. But if I do it like this the icons get pretty small...

Having separate weather notification settings per-widget makes no sense as it means you can end up with multiple notifications. Wouldn't notifications be better as a global setting?

OK but it's a bit of a confusing experience. Perhaps it shouldn't show multiple notifications for the same location?

Feature request please: can you add forecast.io weather service please. For me, it's the only accurate forecast. It allows the option of inserting your own API key also.

Hi David! I'm suggesting and asking you an opinion about having the entire day name (TUESDAY) instead of just three letters (TUE) in Clock+ widget. Could it be possible? At least, have the possibility to choose how the widget displays the day name?
Thank you for your work! Bye.
