    Thanks Sandra. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've downloaded the APK (1st and 2nd variant), installed and get the message "App not installed". I LOVE this clock/date widget!
    Weird. Stupid question, but did you remember to uninstall your previous version?

    I did just get the apk I'm using to upload to google drive. I'll pm you the link.

    At least on my phone I have discovered the the OIS is not as good as it has been in the past.
    Did you switch to Pixel? I'm very underwhelmed with the camera ability of the Note. That's what I've learned with the phone that was left out of nearly all reviews.

    The original version was uninstalled for me by Zedge. I deleted the downloaded files but this strange shortcut remains and I can't seem to remove it. The left icon cycles wallpaper and the right one takes me to Zedge. I'm so confused!

    Pixel. It feels great to hold, it's not long like the Note 9, and most of the time it take sharper pictures IMO.

    Do you still see anything that says Zedge in Settings > Apps that might show it wasn't uninstalled?

    Also, maybe try installing the version of Zedge you're trying get rid of, then uninstall it using settings. Hopefully that gets rid of everything.

    I discovered I can use the S-Pen as a trusted device to unlock my Note 9!
    Just click the button on the S-Pen and it unlocks the display!

    That sounds like a security flaw to be honest, unless of course it only works if the pen is already out of the phone while it was unlocked

    I don't see the security flaw? You can use Bluetooth devices the same way.

    So i am using my S-Pen to navigate through my phone....turn away for a moment and the display locks....i then push the button on my Spen to wake/unlock the display again.
    Not sure where the security flaw is? It just saves me from having to pick up the phone to unlock the display again....

    Walk away somebody else clicks the pen and is now in your phone. Watches at least are on the body. It is probably as much of a security risk as using Bluetooth headphones to do the same thing.

    That is a problem. It is the same as if you have location based trusted sources or a bluetooth speaker as a trusted source. it does require people to use common sense.

    I have uninstalled Zedge from Settings/Apps. I have reinstalled your version. IT WORKED, IT WORKED!!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! You are my new best friend
    I didn't realize we were reinstalling the entire Zedge app. I thought we were just installing the widget. That's what I get for thinking

    So you have both fingerprint and pin code setup for protection but anyone can pick up your phone, pop out the pen and have access, doesn't make sense that the pen should be a trusted device unless tha *trust* expires when the pen run out of power at least

    So I just discovered a "media" alarm on the phone. If I need to set an alarm it's always been on one of my Google Homes. In fact when I set an alarm a few minutes ago it was on my Google Home but my Note 9 took the command too, without me realizing it. I don't know if this is new or not, but, I got some non-descript little jingle that went down in volume once the pleasant lady started telling me the time, forecast, and that it was going to be a nice sunny day (complete with birds chirping). Then she went into a news spiel. That wasn't as smooth and seamless as the first part tho. Then more bouncy light music with birds. I liked it! Is this a Note 9 thing? Galaxy thing? Google?

    It’s an Spen setting that allows this action. Only works if the Spen is out of the device while unlocked, device locks and then you can unlock with a press of the Spen button.

    Sounds like the Bixby briefing setting in the Note 9 alarm settings. You can toggle that on or off for any alarm you set.

    When I remove the S Pen, I can use the larger S Pen that came with my Tab S4, and it has all the same full capabilities.

    You don't need to remove the S Pen if you turn off "Power saver" in the S Pen settings.

    Ok that's cool, too. I was just curious so I tested it. Have a spare for the phone just in case.
