Equake Lite App Widget

Equake Lite App Widget


*** Equake Lite will always be ad free! ***

The Equake Lite App Widget monitors earthquakes and displays information about it at regular intervals, the information is updated each time a new earthquake is found.

The full version of Equake Lite has additional features such as displaying details, lists, maps and records with historical information.

Please note, this is an App Widget, to start it press somewhere on your homescreen and hold it until a list pops up, then select Widgets and select Equake Lite from the list.

I hope you will enjoy it and please feel free to email me with any suggestions, feature requests, bug reports or anything else you think may be useful, thank you.

When you first start Equake Lite it will ask you for a few configuration options, you can leave them at the default or you can change them to your liking. Once you press "save" Equake Lite will start.

The first option sets the amount of time between updates, the default is 5 minutes.

You also can choose the Magnitude level at which an alert will be triggered, this alert will show up in the notification bar and may vibrate your device and cause an audible alarm (dpending on your system settings). The alert will remain visibile until you clear it or quit the Widget. If you click on the notification it will take you to a web page with more information.

You can configure whether you would like a semi transparent background to increase readability or no background (the default).

The last option configures the minimum magnitude to monitor. If you prefer not to see all these magnitude 1.x earthquakes this will come in handy. The behaviour is such that you will only see the minimum magnitude or above on the homescreen and in the "map" and "url" tabs when you click "info". However the preset lists and maps (24 hrs, 7 days) will still show all earthquakes. You can create more specific maps or lists using the "Create Customized Map or List" button. If there has not been an earthquake of magnitude 2 or above in the last 24 hours the "map" and "url" tabs will show the most recent earthquake regardless of magnitude.

Click "Save" to save your preferences.

After that the Widget will start, it may take a few seconds before it will update, depending on your network connection.

When you click the "Info" button a screen will open with 2 tabs:

* The first tab shows a website with information about the most recent earthquake

* The second tab provides some information about the program and the ability to reconfigure it.

Recent changes:
- Added display of local time in addition to the UTC, in that case it will be easy to find out at which time and date the earthquake occurred for your local area

- You can now get to the menu even when no data is available yet, also added a text clarifying this, which will be displayed until the first data is available

- Several minor fixes and enhancements of underlying earthquake processing code

I really like this app! I like the way it gives more specific details about the earthquakes. I would like to suggest that you make the instructions for setting up the widget to be a little clearer. Also add a way to change the size & color of the font & keep it ad-free. Thanks

Keeps freezing Nice widget, but it keeps freezing and interrupting whatever other than app I'm using. Must uninstall.

9/19: Package file invalid. Update 9/19: All I get is package file invalid. 8/1: Still with the Aug 1 fix, the screen first opens to a page with a map frame, but the moment that the frame appears (with a gray background) the screen goes black. On subsequent attempts for a while, it just opens to a black screen that says "No data available yet."
