RFF: desktop widget

Asked by Firenzi on 2011-06-01

Hi. Could you make a widget for Android desktop, please?
I've been evaulating several finance programs and finally selected Financisto as the best one, but I miss the desktop widget.

Can you please tell what do you mean by "android desktop" and "desktop widget"?

What I meant:
- "android desktop": http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_jl9D-9KR-HI/TFByGC0dg1I/AAAAAAAAC4c/GluOvmIW_PU/s1600/launchx.jpg
- "desktop widget": 2*1 blocks' (or bigger) strip presenting some info on accounts, providing a shortcut for adding a new record.

As an example of widget let's look at EasyMoney's one, but it's quite small (at least, personally for me).

We do have a widget which shows accounts balance

Hi. I can't find the widget to install

You don't have to install it separately, it comes along with Financisto. You can add it as any other widget to your home screen.

It doesn't appear in the list of available widgets. I'm using Go Launcher EX, on a 2.3.4-based ROM.

You must have moved Financisto to SD card - in this case the widget won't be available (it's a limitation of Android platform as far as I know)

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Firenzi for more information if necessary.
