Whats the easiest way to delete a widget from the app, without uninstalling the app? I have added a widget but its hidden and I can't find it?

Widgets are not installed in the app, they are included in the app and can be added or removed from a home screen.

If you tried to add a widget to a home screen but don't see it, it's not hidden, it just didn't add correctly. Sometimes the screen doesn't have enough space to hold the full-sized widget so you get a quick error message then it's gone. Create a new home screen and add it there, then resize it to fit the space you wanted originally and move it there.

The Tasks date picker is one day off, both in the selected date and today's date. So on the 28th the 27th is highlighted, etc.

1. Cannot backup settings for Dream screensaver. Backup option is missing in the Dream widget setting, and backup all widgets excludes Dream as well.

2. The preview button is missing from the Dream settings panel.

3. Sometimes when opening the main settings app, Dream is listed there as one of the widgets to select, other times it's missing. Have to try a few times before it shows up again.

Appreciate the new "feels like" temperature option; very helpful. Also thanks for raising the stock symbol limit. Since it doesn't seem to affect the app performance, can we get that tweaked even higher. Is there some limit to that?

Thanks again for all your efforts...

Dream is not an actual widget, it is a link to the Android Daydream / screensaver settings. It is therefore not saved and cannot be restored as a normal widget. It should only show up as a option when you open the main Chronus app, if you launch Chronus settings using the 3 dot button on a widget, only the settings for the selected widget will show, Dream won't.

Regarding the stock items limit - the issue is performance of RemoteViews in Android widgets on lower powered devices. I can increase it more but we will run the risk of it not working/performing on lower class devices which an lead to ANRs and negative reviews.

Appreciate the clarification, however in the main Chronus app, the Dream screensaver setting selection is sometimes there or not – see next post.

In regards to stock widget performance, how about making the symbol limit user selectable in the advanced section. Perhaps you can set the default at 30 as it was before for slower devices, and allow us to put it higher as needed. That would cover all the bases. Thanks...
