Message of the day Widget


5000 quotes from different categories including:
art, computers, drugs, education, kids, literature, love, pets, politics, riddles, science, songs-poems and sports.
Categories are subject of user choice, initially all categories are enabled.
All quotes are written naturally (not translated) in five languages. The language is automatically selected according to the phone settings.
Quotes are updated automatically every 30 minutes.
Quotes can be pronounced using Text-To-Speech system.
Voice synthesis by TTS is separate application , if it is not working, please install from Market TSS and language data.
If the quality of generated speech is not satisfying you, just like me, I strongly reccomend to install Ivona TTS engine and corresponding language data. It is crystal quality and natural human voice. It is also still free of charge.
The background is semi-transparent, giving smooth view of widget over wallpaper.

This application is Android™ Widget variant of original text mode program, used in UNIX™ and Linux™ environments, called "fortune", "fortune-mod" and "MOTD", written from scratch.
Fortune Widget contains the ever-popular fortune program, which will display quotes or witticisms. Fun-loving system administrators used to add fortune to users' .login files, so that the users get their dose of wisdom each time they log in.

Installation: This doesn't open, it is a Widget not an app. Add on homescreen with Long press on background -> Add to Home screen -> Widgets -> Message of the day

In Android environment, it is more useable to run this kind of application using widget, than the original text mode, from command prompt of terminal.

Introduced Share button - to make widget more social, if you like the joke or phrase, easily share it with friends.
Share option is tested and works with: SMS, Gmail, Email, WhatsApp. Currently it fails to work with Facebook, due to well known bug in Facebook for Android. Do not report this problem, please, report it to Facebook app developers.
