@dabdemon how did you do the inversion? Did you have to include two sets of icons in the file?

@DrLoewe Sorry I didn't mean that the state didn't last through the reinstall. I meant that I had reinstalled it to see if there was some issue having had the app on the watch when I upgraded the firmware to beta 3 from beta 2. My point was that now in beta 3, the app no longer stores anything.

@DrLoewe @gaetawoo Lovely! thank you for your response! I also wanted to mention that persistent storage doesn't seem to be working since SDK2 beta 3. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the watch app and it doesn't save state or save previous timer amounts... not sure how to debug it but wanted you to know.
@jmoe in the description above he says every 30 minutes. but it also pulls whenever you change watchfaces back to this face. the pebble isn't doing the internet polling, the phone is. pebble just sends the simple command, so battery isn't very taxed at all. I've used the face for over a week and there is zero diff in battery life, still get 7 days.

@dabdemon @gaetawoo just thought of some other good ideas.. you could have the bluetooth logo only show when the watch is disconnected, to keep things tidy. and then, don't use a graphic, but use a character from your font pack which you already have in your pbw. that way you save space. you can use an X or some other character in the font so it only shows when there is no connection and there is nothing when there is a connection. Then, as far as inverting, you've only got the weather icons to worry about. is there any way to make those icons into a font also? then you can invert them however you like.
@dabdemon @gaetawoo I truly wish the SDK1 Timer app was open source, but I cannot contact the dev for it. It was genius in its implementation.

@DrLoewe After using the app a lot, the only critique i have is that the long press action of changing the value of the timer is frustrating. I have found that I MUCH prefer the way the stock pebble apps do it, with the very speedy accelerated adjustments of a single second instead of 10 seconds, then 30 seconds then more. It is unpredictable and frustrating when you pass the time you wanted. The stock pebble method is much more predicable because the increments do not change and the speed is very fast so as not to be a burden to wait but also very responsive for when you want to stop.
@dabdemon @gaetawoo So yea the Beta 3 fixed the android app displaying the Press the Back Button screen all the time, as others have said, and it's very responsive to get the weather data.
Also, below, i had said there may be a problem with how the GPS is reporting the location and the location displayed at the bottom of the face. Well, what I thought said Stockholm actually said Stockham which it turns out is ... somehow.. a name of the particular neighborhood i'm in? i've never heard it in my life. but as I traveled around, i would see the location change and in most places the name made sense to where i was. so it wasn't giving me the city i was in, but the name of the particular part of the city i was in. very strange. anyway, i checked with yahoo weather app and it tells me the city name, not the neighborhood or area name. I'm looking forward to your open source so I can see how your code is receiving the location name.
anyway, i would also like a setting in the watchface app to turn off the battery display. I don't think it's very needed on a device that lasts 7 days. I know not everyone feels that way, hence a setting. but it's your app, thanks for a great app! also, if we are talking settings, maybe an inverted color version?
I would really appreciate the source code of this timer to be released on github.... PRETTY PLEASE?

also, the vibration that the timer is done is too short. could easily miss that if something else is going on. also no visual feedback that the timer is expired.

dabdemon in timer mode, when setting the timer, there is no rapid change of the numbers when holding down the button, nor can one go from zero "down" to a maximum value. changes should be made both ways.
@dabdemon @gaetawoo I could send screen shots but I don't see that it would help.. there is no information other than the white screen that says Please Press the Back Button. My phone is a Nexus 5 and on 4.4.0 until recently 4.4.2 now. the weather is rarely downloaded. another weather forecast watch app also frequently doesn't connect. Seems like anything with a settings menu in the pebble app has issues, and when i restart the phone, the settings are lost or it doesn't connect.
would taking an android log cat be of any use? Maybe i could also try the debug method in linux for the watch face itself.

@dabdemon another bug, and i'm not sure what's causing it, but whenever I switch to your watchface, it opens the window that says Please Press the Back Button on my phone (from the Pebble app). seems like a bug.
jnm every time i hit the Mark Days Off for country menu it crashes the entire Pebble app on my phone.

@DrLoewe Nice and Simple calendar. However, I'm in the USA and I've used 24 hour time since I was 8 years old. So given that, it would be nice to have the calendar start with Sunday instead of Monday and be in English instead of German. Perhaps a setting screen for the app (accessed through the phone's Pebble app) would allow people to choose their parameters and localization??
I know you are working on it and it's the first version. I like it a lot. Thank you!

@DrLoewe freaking awesome app!!!!! really really great! oh man what are the chances you'll open source your work??
@JeroenDG i LOVE your layout and your font, can you share which font it is? Frankly, I wish there was a setting that let me keep the face visible instead of hiding because it looks so great. Any chances you'll open source this?

@dabdemon Really really like the app!! I am having an issue where whenever I set the location to GPS it tells me the info is coming from Stockholm. If I type in where I am, it will display the correct location. Unfortunately, at the very moment, Stockholm and my location have almost the exact same temperature so the the reading is the same... Hard to tell if it ought to be correct or not. But the icon stays the same and it's apparently snowing in Stockholm and not where I am and the icon i see is the moon... It is also morning/daytime there and night here so I think the icon would change even if the temp was the same.
Sorry if this is a double post.. not sure if the first got through.

I like the functionality of the flick for extra info, but the weather info is always wrong. Not sure where it's getting the data from or how it's locating me, but it's not right I know that much for sure. Also, what's the pattern used to update the weather... cause I can't tell if it's every so many minutes or when you flick your wrist or.. what happens. But since the weather data is so wrong for me, it's not terribly useful.
