I know you’ve been waiting long for this. Now it’s finally here, the next MeteorClock milestone.
The greatest change in 2.1 is the added language support. Currently the following languages are supported: German, Polish, Chinese, French.
If available, the widget automatically adapts to the language defined the Wave’s system settings. As I’m optimizing the translation system, many more languages will be added.
At this point I also want to thank the many supporters and volunteers from the badadev community:
- Bill Chan for Chinese version
- siano for Polish version
- Denis Decocq for French version
In advance I’ll have to add that you still might see some weather conditions in English. That’s because the Yahoo Weather service doesn’t offer localized condition phrases. I need to write them down one after another as they appear in the widget. Then have to add them to the language vocabulary myself. It’d be helpful if you could send me weather condition phrases like ‘Mostly Clear’ or ‘Light Drizzle’ to me, otherwise it could take a while until I got them all.
- wind direction is shown in words
- fixed wrong 12h time conversion
- language support
- reduced backgrounds for resource saving and 2mb limit for future AppStore submittance
Nothing changed there. Nevertheless here’s the control map for new users:
WQVGA, low resolution
Unfortunately I haven’t managed yet an applicable and easy way to make MeteorClock compatible to lower res’ed screens for devices like the Wave 523, 525 and 725. MeteorClock consists of many images and the original CSS is not very versatile. A total rewrite is necessary for this and will take its time. Additionally, the Widget Simulator from Samsung doesn’t support those handsets, nor do I own one. This slows down the development process quite a bit. Sorry that this is taking so long, I’ll have to ask for your patience, guys.
