[APP][2.2+] Lockscreen Calendar

Thanks Meter: 850
 
Post Reply Subscribe to Thread Email Thread
Just made another small app which reads the next upcoming calendar events and shows them on your lockscreen (in the text field where normally alarm apps show the next alarm).

ToDo:
  • separate date string for all-day events - done
  • configurable "look-ahead" time - done

Known problems:
  • some users reported a wrong sorting of the events. seems not to affect every device though
  • repeating events are ignored
  • if another app shows text in the same textfield, it might overwrite the calendar events
  • requires android 2.2 or 2.3 as the calendar content provider changed in froyo
  • doesn't look nice on android 3.0+ therefore i marked it as incompatible with these versions. i'll search for a alternative way to display the events on the lockscreen, not sure if that's possible though

Really NICE app, but pleeeeease add location display!
For me the location of events is really important!

Great app! Works good.

Only one problem.
It shows me instead of the second appointment "null".

For example:
1 appointment on 27.07. -> is displayed correct
1 appointment on 29.07. -> is not displayed

Instead it is displayed:
28.07. null

At 28.07. ther is no calendar entry!

Using in on Android 2.3.3 with Nexus One.

thanks for the feedback!
location is added in newest version, the "null"-bug should hopefully also be fixed
