The problem is:
I have a big Android application. I want to add homescreen widget for this application.

I’ve followed official tutorial and created widget. It works.

Then I’ve include all widget’s code into my big application. Also I’ve declared widget in Android Manifest.

Then app was installed I didn’t see my widget into widget’s list.


The answer is very simple!

My app was installed into SD-card. Moving application to phone was fixed this issue.

When you create your Rails project with PostgreSQL you might have following error after run rake db:create:all

[php]PG::Error: ERROR:  new encoding (UTF8) is incompatible with the encoding of the template database (SQL_ASCII)
HINT:  Use the same encoding as in the template database, or use template0 as template

This error because template database (template1) has been created with an ASCII encoding and you’re екнштп to create the new database with UTF8.


I fixed that by adding ‘template’ parameter to my ‘database.yml’:

adapter: postgresql
encoding: unicode
database: database_development
template: template0
pool: 5
username: username
