Weather app working fine but temperature padding is off?

I believe what you are looking for is located in the daily_list_item.xml file. It's in this layout file that the padding is applied to the ImageViews that live within the cells. If you look at the second ImageView below, the padding is applied to the left side. You may have missed something in here. Layouts can be tedious. Also you may just need to set the alignment of the temperature TextView to the circleImageView that holds the temperature. If you look to the last item in the code below you can see that it is set to align to all 4 sides of the circle. Then the gravity is set to center, which places it within the center evenly. Let me know if this helps.
