      Having spoken with Peter, there appears to have been a misunderstanding as to what the format of this application is. His problem once Cache Radar was installed was that he could not see an icon for it in the list of installed apps. Once it was confirmed that this was a widget which needed to be added to a home screen then it was acknowledged that it did in fact work.
