  1. Weather locations

    There is no South-Eastern district in Botswana it's South-East. Lotlhakane East and Kanye are in the Southern District, not the non-existent South Eastern.

  2. translation

    most of the descriptions for settings are not translated into portuguese (pt-pt), so you ger the headers in portuguese but the descriptions are in english.
    i would suggest using a crowd translation site if needed.

  4. No way to add a blank new page. It only gives choices of people, notes etc. no choice to add a BLANK page

    No way to add a BLANK new page. I add page per your instructions but it's populated with choices of People, To Do, Calendar etc. There is no choice for "Blank Page" as it shows in your help tips.

  8. Date display ignores languagesetting

    If another language is selected in general settings (in this case Dutch, Netherlands), the dates in the calender and clock widget remain and are displayed in English (in this case the system default language).

  9. Danish traslation of Uninstall is "Afinstaller" and not "Fjern".

    Remove = "Fjern" (shortcut)
    Uninstall = "Afinstaller"
    Now we have two "Fjern" where one uninstalls and the other Removes the shortcut. Confusing.

  10. Russian

    Long press menu of an icon on a home screen has confusing entries in Russian translation. Uninstall app and remove link actions both translated as "удалить". I suggest using other, clearer words: "удалить" for shortcut removal and "деинсталлировать" for app uninstall. The latter word sounds less friendly, that could help prevent inexperienced users to choose it while they wanted to just remove a shortcut. The way things are now it makes me nervous that I could easily uninstall an app. I know there is always confirmation before uninstalling but still I fear to lose my important apps and data.
