This is same bug from ages ago with Android 10. Just search “Android 10 widget” on the forum.

It’s still not fixed. I plan to rewrite the widget from scratch. This is a massive job, like weeks.

Update V 3.292

Reload request working OK on single widget.

Multiple widgets do not synchronise on manual reload request.

Edit:
1/ automatic reload does synchronise all widgets.
2/ widget text resizing, in Settings, not working.

Automatic refresh happens to all widgets every 25-35 minutes.

The manual refresh updates just one widget. It is designed to do that.

Some time ago I requested that multiple widget updates be synchronised by a single manual refresh. This was done. Don’t you remember?

Sorry my memory failed me. Too many things going on.

I don’t think I did it but I might be forgetting. It’ll be on a list somewhere.

I’ll stick to single refreshes at the moment. I don’t like changing too many things in one area at once. And to be fair, I’ll just be happy if the automatic refresh of widgets is working. It’s been the source of much frustration for 1-2 years now.

To update my Android 10 widget I click on the widget and turn up on the main page where you can operate the animation. Once I close that down I am able to do a manual refresh and the widget updates. Personally I wouldn’t be without this app and widget. With or without a fix I will keep this app! Thanks for all your hardwork Duane

Thanks. I’m planning to open a new widget post soon to collect stats on who is affected. It seems I fixed the issue for some but it caused a new issue for others. It seems to be isolated to some Samsung phones.

Note, the widgets worked well between 2012 and about 2017, then this battery optimization thing in the newer Android has cause havoc.

Just for clarification my battery manager is off. My phone is an odd one, it is an Oukitel , it has a massive battery 8,000 ma and is supposed to be indestructible which is useful for the voluntary work on do on the castle on the edge of the Solent

Hi Duane, having had my Android 10 for a couple of months I have spent a fair amount of time trying to get to grips with the different settings which a lot more sophisticated than my previous versions and I’m not good on technology. However, I have managed to adjust the settings and now the widget updates without any issues. Hopefully this means you don’t need to spend a lot of time rewriting code etc. Cheers Derek
