Hello!

I have developed and uploaded new Android Widget to Google Play - ThingSpeak Monitor!
Try it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ua.livi.thingspeakmonitor

ThingSpeak Monitor Widget will help you to be always up to date with current state of your Things connected to ThingSpeak service.
Every instance of the widget will display last actual Field value of your Channel.
The values will be refreshed automatically every 30 mins. You can refresh them immediately tapping any time at a widget center .
Your Channel and Field name will be got from ThingSpeak. Just set your channel's ID!
It is possible to monitor several Fields from different Channels in one screen in any possible combinations. Just create several instances of the widget!
You can monitor Private Channels using Read API Keys.
For Public chanels just leave Read API Key input line emty during configuration.
So, it is quite simple!
And Free!
Try it!

I'll be really appreciated for your feedback here or in Google play!

Nice work, thanks !

I have small issue with widget refresh. Every time, when I add new widget, "tap to refresh" function doesn't work at first time.
After phone reboot it works perfect.

Great, can I have some future requests ? πŸ˜‰

I would like to have a option (checkboxes ?) to select data visibility:
- chanel name [Y/N]
- chanel ID [Y/N]
- field description [Y/N]
- field number [Y/N]
- chanel update date [Y/N]

In my opinion, old caption "chanel name" looked better than new concatenating "chanel name" - "chanel ID" πŸ˜‰

There is small issue on my device.
I don't know how to insert picture. Here's link :

As you can, when widget is scaled down, main value is not visible. Is this fixable ?

Thanks again .

Thanks for your opinion!
A part of your wishes has been implemented and already published. Check the following update πŸ™‚

Regarding "scaling issue", unfortunately in scope of Android widget it is impossible to automatically adapt font size for parent layer size.
So, the only possible way is to create one more option in conf screen. It is font size option for manual taloring.
I will try this apprach when have time.
And sure, new options to swith off displaying of Channel Name and Last Update Date will be tryed too.

Have a nice day!

New version 1.1.0 of the widget has just been released.
New features:
1. Now it is possible to change every widget's configuration any time when you need. Just tap at the right top corner of a widget at special new icon.
2. Font size of Item value can be changed in a widget configuration screen to avoid some possible displaying issues.

Try it and have a nice day! πŸ™‚

P.S. Unfortunately, Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ver. 4.0 - 4.0.4) is not supported any more. The lowest supported version is Jelly Bean (ver. 4.1).

Cool, editing widget's configuration was my next wish πŸ˜‰
Adjustable font size is also nice feature.
I'm on Android 6 (Cyanogenmod), I don't care if you drop support fot ancient versions πŸ˜‰

Of course I have another wish πŸ˜‰
Is it possible to hide edit icon for normal view? Something like "auto hide"? Visible for few second after tap? Visible after long press ?

Thank you for your contribution, I gave you " * * * * * " πŸ˜‰

Really good job:) That is it I was looking for, to fast check temp. since some time.. I know that for free I can't expect that you will spend all of your time for this app:) , but will be nice to have possibility to get some history after tap temp value. I am using 4 widgets on screen with 4 ID's, will be good to can have one smaller with a few ID's just to put on main screen ( on the phone). 5 stars from me.

Keep calm, my friend!
There was a mistake with previous verion number.
It was formally the bug fix and should be numbered as 1.1.3.
BTW, new version 1.1.6 with a possibility to hide configuration icon including automatically Channel name alignment has been released.
Please wait for a notification from Google Play!

There is one more thing, oxFF.
Could you please check Polish language translation in configuration screen?
I suppose, I feel it but it should be checked by a native speaker.
Is it correct? Cool

Oh, I see. After today's update everything is clear.
Your polish is very good πŸ˜‰

Only few remarks:
"API klucz do czytania" better will be "Klucz API do odczytu"
"Odnowienie, min. 30" better will be "OdΕ›wieΕΌanie, min. 30" or even better "OdΕ›wieΕΌanie co 30 min."
