So here I am. I am the one behind omoco apps and want to use this thread to discuss with you about Ultimate Wallpaper.
If you don't know the app here is the brief text from the App Catalog:
You can get the app here: Palm USA | Palm webOS Applications | Mobile apps that go further. it is free.Ultimate Wallpaper is a new alround wallpaper app. It displays information right where you need them. Choose from the actual weather, a RSS feed or your favorite stocks. The app will automatically update your favorite wallpaper with the information you want. Be always up-to-date!
Here is the YouTube video:
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can you make the wallpaper active like opening RSS links?
A: No this is technically not possible. It is just an image.
Q: Can you allow more than one update per hour?
A: No because it generates much traffic. Example: 10000 users updating once per hour are generating about 500GB!!! traffic every month.
Q: Traffic? How does the app work?
A: When you run the wizard your wallpaper is stored save at the server. Every time you update you request your wallpaper combined with the widgets. So there is about 60-100kb traffic each time you update.
Q: Can you make a agenda view?
A: I am not shure if I want this. Technically not the problem but there are privacy issues because your private data is sent to the server. I am thinking about this. Perhaps with a large warning.
Q: Server? What is saved there?
A: Only your wallpaper an in a way no one else has access to it.
Q: Make it work with switcharoo.
A: This is technically not possible because palm does not allow to get the name of the current wallpaper. So I can not figure out which one you are using.
Already known feature requests:
- More than one widget at a time
- Agenda widget (see above)
- Nice icons for weather
- Remove the word "Weather" and make the clock better visible (Move widget down a bit)
- ...to be continued
Why should I donate?
This app is free because I like free apps and would like to see more of them. But this apps costs me money every month. The server which is running this app is taking 50$ from me every month and so I would be very lucky if you could donate to help me running this app. I am student right know and programming apps is just my hobby. You find the donate button at the app.
So this is all for now I will update this post. I would like to hear your comments!
