TxMissed - unread sms / missed calls / unread emails widget

i want to contribute with my first widget. It's text based notification widget. Inform you about unread messages or missed calls. Support verbose number (like 1 = one, 5 = five etc.). Very customizable - color, sizes, text format, bold, stroke ... If chosen font does not fit to area, it will be automatically resized to smaller one, which fits. Personally, I use it at Widget Locker screen, so I can easily see count of unread messages. Tested on HTC Desire (Froyo) and emulator (Froyo + Gingerbread)


  • Android version >= 2.0

  • Size of widget is 4x1
  • Hide text, if there is no event
  • Custom Colors (even alpha is supported)
  • Custom fonts (for text and numbers)
  • Font sizes
  • Bold text
  • Stroke text
  • Alignment
  • Onclick action
  • English, Czech, French(DocUHT), German(swiadek) and Spanish(riahc3) localization
  • Verbose numbers
  • Support multiple screen resolutions
  • Choose between none or zero
  • Not zero numbers can have different color than zero numbers
  • Check unread emails (periodic check of IMAP account)
  • Email account data are stored with AES encryption
  • Connection can be limited only to WiFi connection - to reduce bills

Version history
  • 0.1 First version
  • 0.1.1 Add bug report function (thanks to reporting)
  • 0.1.2 Fix crash on font change
  • 0.2 Add email functionality (IMAP), French and Espanol translation, different setting for multiple widgets, more settings to customize
  • 0.2.1 Add German translation (thanks to swiadek), fix configuration bug
  • 0.2.2 Fixed email bug
  • 0.2.3 Just for TEST purposes, upgrade German translate, testing breakline version, hopefully fix CPU usage

If somebody wants to translate widget to his language, feel free to download translation pack and translate to whatever you want Translation pack is XML based, so it is easy to read.

If you like it, please donate development. Even small donation can help :) Donation will be used for Android Developer license and enter to Android Market. Thank You :)

  • 11 Feb - rewriting widget render part - needed to adding more functions (like Gmail)
  • 12 Feb - investigating ways to get custom onclick action
  • 15 Feb - Studying Gmail authentication. Render part was successfully rewrited, but still buggy. Custom onclick action is done.
  • 16 Feb - Finally get to working IMAP check of unread messages, now working on secure storage of mail credentials
  • 21 Feb - Testing new version, trying to find out as many bugs as possible before new release
  • 23 Feb - Waiting for translations, new version will contain English, Czech, French and Spanish(only numbers)
  • 24 Feb - Have full Spanish and French translation, thanks to DocUHT (FR) and riahc3 (ES)
  • 25 Feb - new version is out!!
  • 12 Mar - DEVELOPMENT STOPPED!! Reason: No free time. Any volunteers to continue in my work are welcomed. Sorry guys ...

Ideas, suggestion
I'm open to any suggestions and yours ideas, how to improve this widget. Thanks :)

If you already have version 0.1.2 and want to upgrade to 0.2, please uninstall old version first! New version has different settings system and its not compatible with old one, so it would probably cause application crash.

Hi, could you provide me some closer information?

Will widget crash after adding to home or just nothing happened?
Is it posible, that you have unchecked both "Show zero counts" config options? In that case, widget is "invisible" until some events come (new sms/miss call)
Is service running properly? (Settings->Applications->Running services->TxMissed)

Personaly have HTC Desire on LeeDroid 2.3d with no problem.

Appriciate this bug report, Thank you very much for informations

It's OK now, I found the problem, I should do modification (font, color etc) one by one and not all in the same time !

I really like your app ! Thanks a lot

Works great on my myTouch 4G with Froyo. I am still playing with it though, so we'll see if it continues.

I'm on Ginger bread and see this app is fairly new. I looked in the market first, now seeing this is new. I'll a wait for more updates as I can't seem to get the app to work just yet, on my Evoerolv Gingerbread rom. I'll fuss with it some more, as I can't wait for future updates!

~PLUR~ Peace Love Unity Respect


P.S. @KreAch3R K9mail functionality Please & Thanks
