Hi All,

I'm currently developing a widget with much of the features of TxMissed:

  • It currently reports number of missed calls, unread SMS and unread messages on the main phone's account (the gmail account).
  • Customization of font and background color and transparency. Also font faces (can use fonts stored in external SD card).
  • Customization of the layout (alignments, padding, etc).
  • Text messages can be customized to show whatever phrase you want.

And more features I have currently planned to include.

I hope to upload a first version here at XDA in one or two days, after I can test it a bit more, so stay tuned if you are interested.
I am very interested, can you post a link to your thread here when you get it started? :)

Love the look of the app but can't get it to work on my evo4g. I select the app in the above link and it says that I don't have anything that will open it and when I download it it doesn't show up anywhere. Its not included in the widget list. Any suggestions?

This widget is wonderful.

I'm trying to add a Norwegian translation of the numbers only, where should I put the XML's? And what's the difference between "female" and "male", I'm assuming one is for "call" and one is for "msg"? But which is which? :p

Maybe this is a stupid question, but how do you get back into the preferences of this widget? When I launch the icon from the app drawer, it just doesn't open and when I click on the widget, the preferences do not open up. I have the widge on the screen however, with no way to further edit it.

FYI - I'm running this on the Atrix.

EDIT: Nevermind, started working all of a sudden. In b/w, great app!!!

Kudos to the developer, the widget looks great, but on my Desire HD the count never changes, i.e., it's always showing I have no new messages or missed calls...

    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

    • 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.

    Good work. I wanted to do this with tasker. But there is no missed call variable in Tasker...as far as i know.

    Hi phumpal, I love this widget.

    Would it be possible (or is it already possible) to add an option to change the word 'none' to 'zero' I realise 'none' is better English, but it's just a bit too similar to the word 'one' and when using the default, quite compact, layout the two are difficult to distinguish.

    No problem with that, it doesn't take much work to do ... added to "wish list" for next versions :)

    Would it be possible to make this widget break into two lines

    callnone
    texttwo

    ?

    I'm sorry, I have not much time - school, job etc. Hardly have few hours a week to fix bugs. So I don't think it would be possible in near future. I can add it to todo list and if will be some free time in my schedule, I will do it, but no promises!
