TxMissed - unread sms / missed calls / unread emails widget

Hello,
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)

Screenshots



Requirements
  • Android version >= 2.0

Features
  • 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

Translation
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.

  • 12 Feb - investigating ways to get custom onclick action

  • 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)

  • 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 :)

Recomendation
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.

Look like really good ! But it's bugging in my froyo phone ... I can't put it in my home
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

Choise of application

Is it possible to select a custom application to open instead of the standard?

Normally I use ChompSMS instead of the build in SMS application, but TxMissed opens the build-in SMS app. I've looked under the program settings, and the SMS app is not associated with anything.

I will consider this for next versions. If I keep it simple, to understand, app just told android to show sms app. It don't choose anything, just get system default. Maybe it's possible to set Chomp as your default app, for now ...

I will try. For now, I am rewriting UI part, to be able show more than two informations. After this will be done, i should go investigate email options :)

Some font bug was repaired in version 0.1.2, make sure you have updated version. If you already have and app still crashes, i will be glad, if you send crash report ...
