Billing / Download Questions
• Google allows a 15 minute return policy on all purchased apps. If you uninstall (Go to Android Market > My Apps > Click on App > Uninstall) a purchased app within the 15 minute period, Google will not bill you for the app.
• You are billed thru Google Checkout in Android Market.
• Long press on any empty space on your homescreen (A long press will last several seconds). You’ll then notice the “Widgets” option. Click on the widget menu then click on the widget you want to install. This will place the widget on your Android home screen.
• It’s simple! Go to Android Market from your Android phone and search for my apps. Click on Buy or Install and the app will be downloaded automatically to your device.
4G Toggle for EVO
• Currently the HTC EVO is the only device in which the source contains the java classes needed for 4G support. If other sources become available supporting 4G, then I will update the widget to be compatible with those devices.
• This widget only works with the HTC EVO phone. If you are using an HTC EVO, then make sure you are using an HTC Sense ROM and not a custom ROM as it may not be compatible.
• Unfortunately Android forces me to display each event icon individually in the status bar. I have researched many hours before creating this app and could find no other solution other then using blank icons for each event. I wish there was a way around this, but my only options were to show an icon for each event or show an invisible one.
System Info Widget
• Log into Android Market via the Market app on your device, and go to Menu > My apps. A list of all of your purchased apps will appear for you to re-download.
• Make sure to remove the widget from the home screen before you upgrade to a newer version. Also you may try to reboot your device after upgrading.
• On somes Motorola devices like the Droid or Droid X, the default battery percentage only displays in increments of 10. This means that any battery widget you download will only display percentages in 10's (ex: 90%, 70%, 40%) and never exact percentages like on almost all other devices. (ex: 93%, 75%, 48%). It is a "feature" of the phone and there is no way around it.
• When you have the widget loaded on one of your homescreens, you touch the widget background (the free space on the widget anywhere besides on one of the icons). This will launch the settings menu where you can change themes, widget items (under display options) and other settings.
Please see the screenshot at this link: http://jasoncalhoun.com/images/siw_how_to_configure.jpg.
The red dots indicate where you can touch to launch the configuration menu.
Picture Dial Pro
• Touch the settings icon at the bottom center of the widget to access the widget configuration menu.
From there you can touch one of the available “Select Contact” options. You will now be able to choose a contact from your address book to display in that position. Once that is done, you will be able to checkmark which communication method you would like to use for that contact (Call, SMS, Email or “Ask Me”). Now click Save to have the widget remember your selections.
Your contact will now be displayed on the main widget screen just how you configured it. Touch the icon to the right of your contact’s picture to launch the communication method that you previously set up in the configuration menu.
You are able to set up 4 contacts in the large widget an 2 contacts in the small widget (available only in Picture Dial Pro).
• Make sure you have the widget saved to your internal memory and not your SD card. It cannot run properly from the SD.
If you are rooted and using a custom ROM, be aware that some ROM's actually save downloaded apps directly to your SD card by default. Goto your phone settings > applications > and select the widget then click "move to phone".
• If you are using a task-killer or task-manager, remember to exclude or ignore my widgets in the settings of your task app. If you are killing the activity of my widget, it will not be able to update and function properly.
Remember that these widgets will NOT work properly if you have them saved to your SD card. They must run from the device.
If you are not using a task-killer you may need to uninstall my widget, reboot and then re-install the widget. If you have restored an old backup file sometimes the data is corrupted and a fresh install will fix the issues.
• As of May 2010 I have discontinued Blackberry theme design and sales thru JasonCalhoun.com. You can still purchase my themes for older Blackberry models thru MobiHand.
