Device Profiles

A new feature in update 0.1.9 is Device Profiles.  Since the Android framework is not built to accommodate customly rendered app widgets, certain workarounds must be used. The purpose of this feature is to enable correct rendering on all Android devices, by configuring the exact dimensions used when drawing the widget.

Please note: This feature is only needed if you wish to change the rendering settings for Aix. Depending on your device you may never need this feature, as the standard settings work on most devices.

The feature enables the following:

  • Synchronize with the Aix database to get the most popular, and thus likely correct, dimensions for your device.
  • Calibrate the widget to any device through the use of a calibration pattern.
  • Upload the calibrated dimensions to the Aix database where they will be available to other users.
  • Locking the widget to render strictly in either landscape or portrait mode.
