Hi Pasha,

I am glad that YoWindow becomes better and better. :)

However, maybe there are some small "mistakes" (with ASUS ME172V, Android 4.1.1):
1. Now, 'Mostly cloudy' looks like 'Partly cloudy' much rather, when it is the actual weather and not the forecasted one. Clouds should be gray (now they are white in this case), and there should be more clouds like in Windows version. In very-very early Android version, when there was not user interface or a very simple one, it was good.
2. Time of sunrise / sunset don't match with Windows version.
3. For me, on second and further launch, the sound of sea waves, brook and rain are usually missing.
4. In Valley landscape with low visibility, the pine trees and the brook have a strange appearance.
5. Now, in the notification bar, wind direction is shown in a shortened form instead of the whole word. But in Hungarian, the west needs two letters for shortening, and the WNW and WSW direction need five (NYÉNY, NYDNY), so now we can see NÉN and NDN.
6. (with 1.5.5) When the moon phase is little (around new moon), the shape of the Moon doesn't change like in Windows version.

+1 question:
Do you plan that add an 'Exit' button which stops running the app?

Thanks for your work.

Adrian

Wow! So many good findings.
Thanks, Adrian!
I wish I could fix all these issues today, but it looks like a work for a couple of months.
I will add your observations to our schedule and will be fixing them throughout this year.
Again, thank you for the excellent report.

Why do we need an Exit button?

I help you with pleasure. :wink:

Sometimes YoWindow consumes more memory if once I launch the app (80-100 MB instead of the normal 30-50 MB with static wallpaper), so with the 'Exit' button maybe I could stop the running of YoWindow. I am only wondering, the others are more important.

By the way, I have to specify the 4th point: I have thought about the little pine trees on the right, not the bigger ones on the left.
