Wow, even a power consumption report :)

At this point it's not fair to evaluate the power consumption of YoWindow wallpaper.
It will become much resource hungry when we to add landscapes and sky animations.
I think in the end the wallpaper is going to be static by default.
Dynamic animations will be optional.

Thanks for the report!

1. LG GT540, 3" screen, 320x480 px, Android 2.3.7.
2. Samsung Galaxy Note, 5.3" screen, 800x1280 px, Android 4.0.4.

Results:
1. On a smaller phone, the YoWindow wallpaper has been running for almost 24h, and the battery has discharged from 100% to 40% only. Quite reasonable, I would say.
2. On a bigger phone, it's draining the battery way beyond "reasonable". Right now I have the phone charging from a laptop's USB slot and the battery level is decreasing. True, the USB port only gives 0.5A, while the standard charger for this phone gives 1.0A. But still, I managed to charge this phone from USB (slower, yes) - when I didn't have YoWindow wallpaper.

Thanks so much! That report was very important!
Yes, turned out YoWindow can crash in case it cannot fetch data from the Internet.

My two widgets were showing but when you tap Jakarta it does not show on the main screen. I tried many times last night to add Jakarta onto the main screen resulting in the program force closing. This morning I tried again and there was no problem. I live in an area with a bad signal, so perhaps this had something to do with it as well.

Hello,

I installed Yowindow 0.4 on 3 devices, Telephone, Tablet and Bluestacks.

When I start Testflight app, I see the following:

YoWin does not quite like the large and very large font setting:

Thanks, Leif!
At this moment we do not pay attention to text formatting.
The location button at the top is just for the test.
The final look of YoWindow is going to be very much like iOS look.
