@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.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Pebble Face - Time Machine (SDK 2.0) by
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.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Pebble Face - Yahoo! Weather (SDK 2.0) by
@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.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Pebble Face - Pebble Calendar 2.0 (with configuration screen) by
@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?
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Pebble Face - TapTime by
@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.

Everything works well in SDK2. Though I think the font used is a poor choice as it does not look good on the watch, doesn't render well.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Pebble Face - World Metric (SDK 2.0) by
@xarrange i see you've just done this but the update isn't up yet. thanks for the quick action though. Also, what is the point of an hours section in the countdown since you'd have to stay on the timer app the entire time for the timer to work, which is not realistic for very long periods of time (hours range). Given the current state of Pebble apps with no background running, if people want something over 30, 45, 60 minutes, they should probably be setting an alarm instead, which does run in the background.
Some concerns about this timer app:
1. What is the point of having a Days countdown, or really even hours, because you'd have to leave your watch on the app the entire time for the timer to work which is... just not going to happen. Personally I think double digit minutes is plenty for a timer, if you want something more than that set an alarm.
2. Not being able to go to the max value from zero is very inconvenient. The stock Pebble alarm app lets you count up or down through zero or maximum very quickly, this is very nice. Being stopped at zero from continuing on "down" to 59 is silly. If I want 55 minutes, it's easier to get there from zero backwards than it is to count up from zero.
3. The vibration that the timer has expired is too short and then stops. Like the SDK1 very popular timer, I feel it should continue vibrating for at least a minute before it automatically turns off. In addition to that, if you are in the single timer view and the timer goes off, the time setting resets to the full time, but nothing looks different other than the vibration so you are kinda wondering... did my timer go off? did i start my timer?? there is no visual feedback like a blinking screen or something. At least in the multi-timer view when a timer goes off it makes a little symbol there showing that the timer has gone off.
Please take this as constructive critique, because I really appreciate the work and effort. Just things I feel would make the user experience significantly better.
@xarrange well done, thanks for this! I would recommend allowing the long press of the top and bottom buttons to quickly change the values just like in the stock pebble alarm app. other than that, it's very nice!
@dabdemon @gaetawoo you rock me like a hurricane

@dabdemon wow, you totally get it! Timestamp and Location are so important (to me at least) for verifying the accuracy of the data. Thanks for including those! Any chance you'll make this open source so we can learn from your work?
@BenGalaviz well done ! what are the chances you'd release the source for this? seems like great material to learn from for new coders

couldn't you use something like configuration.py used here:
to do the conversion from Google code to hex-bit-code? seems easier but.. who knows.

Where on earth do I input the tickers? I'm in Android but is there a companion app?
this face keeps crashing on me. I know you're working on it. Just letting you know.

yeay, first watch with sunrise/sunset that has the time correct!!!! finally!
@JTGreeno Any chances to get this on GitHub open source??
1. Can you provide the source for this?
2. It lags at load.
3. As this is just a calendar, there isn't a need to have the date box blink every second (in my opinion, just takes more battery and slows down whatever processing needs to happen).
Love the idea though.

@nemesys_soft @rfrcarvalho I take it back that it should be pulled from the web, because it appears that most places that provide the api for that are stingy and/or expensive...
1 year ago on Pebble Face - 91 Weather by
@Dersie @J Valenzuela @nemesys_soft @rfrcarvalho I thought so. That makes no sense. How are the times for people who ARE on DST correct then? seems like they'd be off an hour and I'd be off an hour in different directions. Either way, it's clear that is the wrong code for the no DST instance. I cannot speak for those in DST because I'm not there.
And then, what happens when DST is off for everyone? I am always UTC -7 with never DST. Others like California are UTC -8 and they do observe DST.
(this brings me to the other point of the idiocy of DST, different rant different forum).
@Dersie @J Valenzuela @nemesys_soft @rfrcarvalho I'm not compiling it myself. I'm just using the one posted here. I have looked at my android logcat to see what data is being passed back to Pebble when it calls for the time stuff, and it appears that it is being passed DST = 0 which is correct. and the timezone name is correct also. That's why i'm so confused regarding the incorrect sunrise/set times. It would seem that the sunriseTime and sunsetTime are being increased by 1.
in that first expression is says !pblTime.tm_isdst... i take that to read: if isdst is NOT true, then do the following... am i wrong in reading that?
@wings177 you have to install the new one. it will overwrite whatever is on the watch already.
1 year ago on Pebble Face - Futura Weather 2 (Celsius) by
@nemesys_soft @J Valenzuela @rfrcarvalho agreed, all of the other 91 weather based watchfaces actually crash my pebble or corrupt the other faces on the watch. The newest version of this 91 face is the only version that doesn't crash it. but looking in the code, there is stuff for an 8-phase moon readout (which others have implemented). And logically, looking at how the sunrise/set is calculated and displayed, I can't see anything particularly wrong with it... other than it looks like a lot of rounding... so i can't understand why my values are 1 hour and some change off.
but i reiterate that instead of having the watch calculate the complicated equation for sunrise/set, it should just pull it from the web if such a thing is possible.
Looking at the source code... it surprised me that the sunrise/set data is not pulled for the web like the weather data, but instead calculated on the pebble itself, which is why it takes so long to display. My current correct sunrise/set times are 05:30/19:30, but on my watch it is reported as 06:25/20:27. It appears, based on logcat examination when the weather data is being pulled, that my location reporting is correct, identifying me within my local cell tower. that's plenty for accuracy. Also, my location does not observe Daylight Savings Time, so it is possible that the calculation does not take this into account.
Also, it seems like there's a lot of rounding going on, I guess because Pebble doesn't like floats?
Anyway, wouldn't the fastest, universal, and accurate way to get sunrise/set data be to pull it from a website by submitting the lat/long and date? Presumably the website would know the local time of the reported location and therefore report in the correct time, and can also employ a more robust, precise calculation, and much faster than having the watch itself do it.
@rfrcarvalho what are your thoughts?
