Troubleshooting

Q: Clock stopped working/Clock is sometimes not updating. What is wrong?

A: Please make sure you don't use task killer/task manager. These programs are harmful and may cause that my apps stop updating.

Q: Android Market says that app is not compatible with my device although free version is...

A: A: There may be a lot reasons. Please check these:

Q: I don't see Make Your Clock Widget in the list of widgets...

A: Please check these:
  • Please make sure that app is installed in internal memory. According Google's spec Widget apps can't be moved to SD card.
  • If you run app on Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwitch please run app (not widget) from list of apps. Or try reboot phone. There is an Android issue that causes that widget is not immediatelly after installation visible in list of widgets.

Q: Weather loading does not work...

A: There may be a lot reasons. Please check these:
  • Make sure you didn't disabled weather forecast loading. Go to List of applications/Make Your Clock Widget/Global Options and check option called Weather Update Interval

Q: Current temperature does not match real temperature

A: Possible causes:

Markets, Payments and PayPal

Q: I don't want to buy application via Android Market. Is there some alternative?

A: Application can be purchased from
AndroidPIT market. AndroidPIT accepts both PayPal and credit cards as payment methods.

Q: I'm owner of the license via Play Store (former Android Market) but app says that license verification failed....

A: This is rare situation that may happen:
  • If you are not connected to the internet and/or your connection is not reliable. Solution: Test your internet connection and try it again.
  • You have not standard Play Store installation and/or you killed Play Store with Task Killer. Solution: start Play Store or restart your phone.
  • If you have modified ROM and/or rooted phone. Solution: Quite often helps to clear of cache of Play Store.

If nothing of solutions above does help you can try:

  • Restart your phone and try it again
  • Stop using security software that blocks some apps. Play Store is using Google Talk for communication so killing of Google Talk may cause Play Store issues.

WARNING: Don't uninstall app otherwise you lose your designs!

Please contact us in case app is still not working and we refund your payment. Sorry for inconvenience.

Features/Feature Requests

Q: Why app expires? I bought Pro version and it expires every month...

A: App is still in beta phase and you pre-ordered Pro version for half of the final price. When app leaves Beta phase then it will stop expiring. Let me know if you are not comfortable with this behavior and I'll refund your payment.

Q: Why you make beta expiring? It is annoying...

A: Application is chaning a lot and having only one version on all phones makes debugging significantly simpler. Also I can change API of eg. Web Gallery without worrying that I'll break half an year old version because it is not already in wild.

Q: Can I use my own fonts?

A: Not at the moment but this feature is planed quite soon. Please stay tuned. Major reasons why it is not already there are:

Q: Could you please add seconds element?

A: Widgets are not designed to be updated so often and implementation of seconds may cause high battery draing. So I'm not planning this feature in near future.

Q: Could you please add support for custom bitmaps (eg. PNGs)?

A: This feature is planned but there are some considerations related to sharing such a designs, copyright protection etc. Please stay tuned.

Q: What is the difference between HD and non-HD version?

A: HD version was originally intended for tablets and non-HD version was intended for phones. Unfortunatelly current situation on phone market (we have more and more tabletphones) makes this more complicated. I wish I could merge these two flavors into one but Google does not allow transfer licenses from one app to another one.

So if in doubt buy Phone version even if you own tablet. It works on both but it is not optimized for tablets. In future I'll probably add tablet features into phone version.

This complicated situation is also reason why HD version is much cheaper than phone flavor.

Q: Can be app moved to SD card?

A: According Google's specification (see
http://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/install-location.html#ShouldNot) widget applications can't be moved to SD card. Sorry for that.

Q: Why there is one weather provider only? Could you please add AccurWeather, WeatherChanell, WeatherUnderground, ...

A: Google stopped provide weather information in August 2012 and only high volume free weather provider at the moment is
YR.NO.

Some of you complained that Google gave better data for you (and some of you complained for Google's forecast) and asked me to add more weather info providers.

I can't provide any of these providers because of their licensing policy. There are tens thousands installations of Make Your Clock (majority of the free or pirated) around the world and montly fees for weather info license would be very high for me. Please note that you pay two or three USD per copy once and then you can use it for years still consuming weather info.

I'm considering some workarounds and/or different business models (including paid plugins/subscriptions), so please stay tuned.

Just let me know if you bought Pro version and not happy with current situation and I'll refund your payment.
