    No Disconnect after refresh and disconnect ALL work just fine. Just disconnect after exit does NOT work.

    disconnect from the menu also works fine.

    Again: DISCONNECT "4Cast" connection is what does NOT work.

    No, you must have misread my earlier post. On VZ device, all disconnect options work correctly EXCEPT "Disconnect on exit". "Disconnect all" works fine.

    Yes!! It works exactly like "Disconnect all".

    I got a feeling your reset problem is either caused by a conflict with another app or a problem with your 600. Neither 2day nor 4cast has ever caused a reset on either of my 600s.

    Hi,

    May I ask - what city are you looking at ?

    Hey - I just got the white screen of death! I was in 4cast, refreshed my city, then hit the left nav button to go back to 2day and it went to a white screen instead (and it froze up so that I had to pull out the stylus and do a push-pin reset).

    Shimon - There is definately an issue with 4cast and network usage - how can we best help you debug the problem?

    Sorry about that.

    What version of 4cast ?
    What settings do you have in preferences ?

    Great app! I don't know why it took me so long to find it.

    I do have one suggestion/request, however.

    Like others, I'm on Verizon using minutes only, so I try to limit my data usage to when I initiate the connection. (By the way, the disconnect on exit does seem to work for me).

    On the refresh, is it possible to add an option to either refresh manually only, or possibly on a set schedule to account for off-peak times when data is free for me (eg every day at 4 A.M)? I know that it will only refresh if you open 4cast after the set duration, but I don't always want it to refresh every time I open it, but at the same time, I may want to refresh it more often than every five days.

    So for me, my ideal settings would be an option to automatically update - Never, and an option to set a schedule to auto update.

    Also, if I update it today, but don't update it tomorrow and open it up, will it still think that tomorrow is the current day? (will "Tomorrw" which now is Wednesday, still be the data for Wednesday tomorrow?) If so, is there any way to rename the days automatically even if the data is old?

    Thanks, and I look forward to seeing this application progress. I'll most likely purchase it, but want to make sure I don't have to worry too much about my data usage while still being able to have somewhat recent data.

    Shimon -

    The problems (white screen and disconnect) were on version 1.34(001). I'm now running 1.35(001) and still get the disconnect problem - but have not seen the white screen.

    Here's my preferences setting...I would rather have On Exit set to "disconnect 4cast" instead of "ALL" (but I think disconnect 4cast is what is broken).

    Hi,

    4cast does not update automatically, unless actually launched.
    So it seems a bit useless to allow scheduling of refreshes.
    I will add an option NOT to use those refresh intervals (only manual refresh).

    Regarding what you see tomorrow - it will change the day titles appropriately.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    The difference between the two options ("disconnect 4cast..." & "disconnect all") is the first only asks to disconnect connection if it was started by 4cast (so if you did not - it will not close at all).
    The latter forces disconnection of ALL open connections.

    I suspect the strange behaviour is due to a "tweak" they implemented on the Treo:
    The network library allows applications using connections to close the connections they used in two modes - immediate shutdown, or "delayed" shutdown (so that if you, say, browse the web, then exit - you can jump directly to reading mails without the browser shutting down the connection and the mail app re-dialing/connecting upon entrance).

    On normal devices this timeout is a few seconds long.
    On the Treo it seems to last a lot longer (to keep the device connected all the time).
    So if you select "Disconnect ALL" I call ANOTHER function called 'NetLibFinishCloseWait' that forces this timeout to end.

    I still think the crashes are not related to 4cast, nor 2day...

    Right, but as any data connections I make will use up airtime, I would rather have it automatically update when I am asleep and on my free nights/weekend minutes rather than peak minutes. Just wondering if such automatic scheduling would be a possibility.

    As far as aving an option to never automatically update at a certain time, this would be a alternative for me if scheduling isn't possible. I may not want it to update every x days. As of now, the only way to prevent this is to not open 4cast, because even if I set it to the longest duration (5 days), it will still update the first time I run the application after that 5 days is up. And I'd rather be able to control when that is.

    Regarding what you see tomorrow - it will change the day titles appropriately.

    Thanks.
    Thanks for the information.

    Thanks. If scheduling isn't possible/in demand enough to add it, this is a good alternative.

    Hi,

    To be honest - it's not a question of demand, but rather of the time I would have to spend on development & debug of such a (complicated) feature - for a $5 application.

    We've discussed this in the past, and agreed if I decide to make a "4cast plus" for a higher price - I will certainly add background operation.

    Understand. And the ability to switch off the auto refresh is a good compromise.

    Thanks again. Now I'll have to take another look at 2Day. I've been using Today, both because it's free and it has a cleaner interface. But I've never really given 2day a good evaluation. The ability to add plugins certainly makes it more attractive...but you already know that.

    Maybe it's a timeout thing.
    I will extend it...
