    Default Numbers truncated in Week and Hearts
    I have a jailbroken 3.02 iPhone and on two applications the numbers appear truncated. For instance in Week (formerly Vecka) the number 1 - 9 show up fine. But when the number increases to 10 it appears on the iPhone screen as 1 . . .

    This also happens in Hearts - the scores show correctly until the 2nd digit is needed then they get cut off.

    Any ideas, help?

    Could just be the apps. The programing may just allow one space for numbers, so it must show one digit (in this case, the first one). I don't think there may be anything you can do except dealing with it. But, do the numbers go up as if they were single digits or do they take longer to go up once they're past 9?

    I did talk to the developer of Week and he said that it worked find on unjailbroken iPhones. To me it seems that the font size is too big for the allocated space.
    For instance in Week (which shows the week number) we know there are only 52 weeks in a year so the space allocated is for two numbers. But once you get beyond a single digit you get three dots following the single number (i.e. 3 . . . )

    Hearts acts the same way - no problem with single digits - but over a single digit - the (*)&(*& dots appear.
