Ever since the 1.7.1526 firmware update on 3/24/2016, all fields show "undefined". Looks like another app is dead.

You have to keep signing in. Doesn't seem to cache credentials. That's pretty bogus when you want your Dash to rotate between different social apps.

Its a shame this isnt being supported anymore. Would love to see pink or brown noises along with ither nature sound options. Also,the white noise has a strange artifact in it that is very obvious and extremely annoying.

Here we go again. Lots of "unable to connect to server" type messages for last few days, but then it started working again, at least enough to get some data from public timeline. So I tried to log in... Now I get the "invalid user / password" over and over. This is both logging in on the chumby and on the Chumby website. Both fail with the same message. It was working just a few days ago, and my kids are really bummed. Trouble shooting tips? Anything I can do at my end, or is it (as it appears) to be an authentication change at Twitter that Chumby hasn't caught up with yet? Please report back here, and send e-mail if you can. There seem to be plenty of others with this problem...

Once again... The app is not working. I have been a 1st gen user of the Chumby for a long time, and I hope this not a signal of the end of development and support of the product or the apps. Please resolve this issue quickly, the Holidays are here and I was going to gift a few Chumbys, but I am now forced to reconsider, as we are power Twitter users.

The app works well for me, but the white on yellow text is very difficult to read on a 3.5" screen. Consider higher contrast for text over background colors.

UNABLE TO CONTACT TWITTER SERVER...AGAIN. Folks, how hard can it be to keep a simple app like this RUNNING FOR MORE THAN A WEEK AT A TIME? Gad. Somebody must be asleep at the wheel at Chumby, they expect to sell these things and they can't keep probably the #2 US app running from day to day?

Ever since Chumby started showing ads on my device that only ran *TWO* apps total (time and weather), I had to find a solution, and this is it. Like previous comments, there is a bug that makes the month/day/date flash every 10 seconds or so when you use certain colors. And I would like to see a flashing colon between the hour and minute. A otherwise fantastic clock app.

Yahoo! Weather (World Wide)
Thanks for looking into the updating problem. I've since noticed that it is actually caused by Yahoo. Their website is sometimes very slow to update the weather data for overseas (Australian) locations. There is one way that we can workaround this annoyance. Instead of listing 'Today' and 'Tomorrow' in your widget, please state the actual name of the day ('Monday' and 'Tuesday') instead. This way, we'll know immediately whether Yahoo hasn't bothered to update the weather data for a few days. Another thing is that I'm hoping you can list the minimum temperatures in blue text and the maximums in red. It'd also be good if you can increase the font size of those temperature texts.

A shuffle is a good idea. I do sometimes see my same pictures a lot. I will look into the smugmug rss feeds and see what is possible. As it is right now, it just grabs items from the rss feed which is in chronological order.

Yahoo! Weather
This application functions very well, but I think its layout needs improvement. I don't see why the current weather text and graphic needs to be so massive, since we already know what's going on outside at the moment. Shrinking this stuff would provide room for more weather forecast days to be shown. Speaking of which, I don't think we need anything more than the graphic and temperature extremes for the forecasts. Removing the textual description would help to unclutter the interface and permit more days to be shown. I also think that the font size of the forecast information should be larger. The other thing I want to see is coloured text. You should list the maximum temperatures in red and the minimums in blue. In order for this to work, you might need to change the background from yellow to white. What is your opinion about all of this? Are you happy to implement it or should I?

My clock applications are correctly showing that today is November 15, but your Yahoo! Weather application still thinks today is November 12. This means that it's displaying the weather information for the wrong days, which is totally useless. How long will it take you to fix this problem?

Just recently got a chumby8, and wanted to say thank you for creating Clockzilla. It's genius, as even squinting I have little chance of reading a normal alarm clock without my glasses on. Clockzilla is a perfect solution, and I can tell the time easily without my glasses.

I'm stoked to see such interest in this app. Obviously, the beauty lies in its raw simplicity and the plethora of possible website destinations (whether already existing or created by you ;). Like many of you, I share(d) the same vision where this could show a webpage and yet still "cycle" automatically. Alas, that is still not a feature that can be added without modification to, and the cooperation of, the Control Panel and firmware. The future is still unknown; as always, your comments are the primary fuel.
