Unhappy HTC Weather Widget

My HTC weather widget (the one included with the flip clock) is definitely not updating. I've tried different configurations of the HTC widget, and they don't update either. A friend of mine is having the same problem.

I even did a factory reset to see if that would resolve the issue to no avail. Anyone else having this problem?

Well, it should be. My WiFi is on, and the WiFi indicator is covering up the 3G icon.

I've got "Enable always-on mobile" selected in Mobile Network Settings. Does the WiFi replace 3G when its turned on or work in conjunction with it?

Would this even matter? Wouldn't the Weather App be able to update via WiFi?

Right now, it's 12:33 AM and the widget says Mostly Sunny.

What happens when you go into the widget and manually refresh it? Also, go into the widget and press the Menu button, and go into the settings. Make sure it's on the auto-update setting.

It's definitely set to automatically update, but I have to manually update when I open the program. When I open the program, the time at the bottom of the screen is always an hour or so off. It never updates unless I hit the update icon at the lower left of the screen.

Seems like it starts working every now and then, randomly.

I too was having "quirks" with the HTC weather widget periodically not updating... the whole "sunny at 2am!" thing, and stuff I decided to dump it for the WeatherBug app instead. I like it a lot better, honestly. WeatherBug puts the current temp up in the notification bar up top, and then when you pull down the notification tray, you are also given the current temp, high temp, cloudy/sunny/whatever... and the time it last updated.

It also comes with two different size widgets which are nice as well, however I don't really use them since the temp is up in the bar all the time (even on the unlock screen, which is nice!). Plus, the app gives you radar, a lot more information about the forecasts, weathercam photos and more.

This is all in the free version (ad supported)... there's supposed to be a pay version ("Elite"), which I'd gladly pay for but I can't seem to find it in my Market for whatever reason. *shrugs*

Today my stock HTC clock/weather widget stopped displaying the weather. When I go into the weather App, it refreshes but I get nothing but a black screen. I can still scroll through the cities I had loaded, but there is nothing but the name of the city! I didn't change anything between yesterday and today. Anyone have any idea why the weather stopped working? And it doesn't matter 3G or WiFi. Doesn't work all of the sudden.

Copy/paste my response to you regarding the same subject in the "Missing Apps" thread: Yes, that works *now* -- but not last week when I original wrote about it . In between then and now, as I posted elsewhere in (that) thread, its has been fixed.

I'm having a similar problem with the clock/weather widget on my Hero. I have it set to Current City and I noticed the other day that the weather wasn't updating. ( I live in Long Beach, CA) It was stuck on one weather. I especially noticed when it still said partly sunny at 11pm. It doesn't work even if i try to manually update.
I thought it was just the current city function that was having trouble registering but when I go to other cities nearby it updates fine. And when I specifically set it to Long Beach, CA, it was still stuck and not updating.

Anyone else having this problem? Is there something wrong with the weather equipment in Long Beach?

I'm at a loss.

At 1 a.m., my Eris widget reads "partly sunny." No one seems to have any answer other than "get weatherbug."

I HOPE this gets fixed with out 2.1 update. And at the least I would like the weather widget that comes with 2.1 I dont see why it wouldnt, since it should be a stock Android widget I believe.

My HTC weather widget updates automatically but it seems to only do so every 4 hours or so. Also between ~12am-2am it always shows sunny. I wish you could manually set how often it updates.

Beautiful Widgets is the way to go. They now have skins you can download right to your SD card for free. I had a lot of problems with the HTC weather widget not showing the correct temp.

I'm used to using weather.com so I made a shortcut icon to that page. It has a good mobile version page. Also has 10 day forecast, school info....more comprehensive then the HTC widget.

My awake time is consistently in the 9%-11% range. My battery life is quite good, so I can fairly confidently say that Weatherbug isn't a hog. I'm running the 'Elite' (paid) version now since it finally showed up in the Market after that post you quoted so long ago The big thing, I think, is to set it not to use GPS to constantly find your location... just set your home and/or whatever other locations you want to quickly see the weather for, and turn off GPS in the app.

That's good it works for you. I had to get rid of it because no matter how much I turned off and tweaked, it kept my awake time at nearly 100%. I'm now using the weather.com widget and it only updates when I wake my phone up and flick to the screen the widget is on.

Maybe I'll give Weatherbug one more go around and install it once more.

My wifes Eris was doing exactly this and mine wasn't. When I first got mine I accidentally deleted the widget and had to add it again. I haven't had a problem with it all. I just removed the wifes clock widget then added it and things seem to be fine now.

I also had this issue. I think switching your home scene may have something to do with it. I deleted and reinstalled the widget and it seems to update now.

Default HTC weather widget update issues, and cities not found

with the latest upgrade to 2.1 on my eris a few weeks ago, the HTC weather widget with the flip clock now updates on the home screen but i still have to force the weather to update, even though i set the update frequency to 1 hour. also, there seems to be no way to get weather for any location in the state of maine (or vt, or nh for that matter). augusta (the capital) only yield augusta, ga; portland only yields oregon, bar harbor, waterville, belgrade lakes... no results found. it's very frustrating. i know maine is a sparsely populated state, but i go there and want weather updates!

background data needs to be active for weather widget to work correctly for 2.1.

I am having the same problem with adding cities/locations. Many cities (let alone smaller towns) simply aren't listed any longer. Strangely, all the locations I've been trying to add were available and worked fine on my phone before I did the OTA 2.1 update. I did the factory reset today to get the HTC weather app to stop force closing (annoying product of the 2.1 update), which seemed to work; but now I can't add any of the locations where I'd like to regularly check weather. Very frustrating.

Previous poster mentioned that "background data" needs to be on for the HTC weather widget to work. I'm not sure what that means exactly. I've had my mobile network on though if that is what's being referenced.

Yes, I know there are other weather apps out there, but I really like the HTC one without the ads, or having to launch another app.

Any help out there?

ok people, try this....

1. go to Menu -> settings -> accounts & sync.

2. check if "background data" is selected. if it isnt, select it.

3. underneath that where it says "manage accounts", select "weather"

4. Under "data and sync" make sure the box is checked.

5. Under "General Settings" set the frequency and temp. scale. (the more frequent it updates, the more juice you use).

6. back out to your settings again.

7. Go to "applications" and select "manage applications".

8. once it loads, look for the "Weather" apps, go into them and clear hit "clear data."

9. Go back to your home screen and press under the clock where the weather is supposed to be.

10. hit menu -> settings. Select "update automatically ", back out then hit the refresh button in the lower left corner of the screen.

If this doesn't resolve your problems, nothing else will and your phone is just not destined to show the weather. Sorry.

Thank you for the detailed instructions Rick. I appreciate it. I gave it a try and still no luck.

The phone itself seems to be working fine, as well the application itself. Rather, it seems that the database of available towns & cities has been cut down to a mere fraction of what was previously available. Major US cities are altogether absent. I don't understand that, especially since they were there and working before. [sigh]

Oh well.

Thanks rick311! Under "Accounts and Sync" settings I had "Auto-sync" unchecked. So even though I went to the settings in the weather widget and checked the box to sync automatically it didn't do anything, and when I went back to the widget settings it was always un-checked. Looks like it's working good now!

Hi, I am using Xperia X10, and I have installed the Fancy Widget. It has a big digital clock on my home screen, but I do not find the weather, as I saw in the screenshot. How can I get the weather too with Sun & Moon displyaing accordingly? Any hope for Android 1.6 Xperia?

I've got two 1x2 Weatherbug widgets set up (home and vacation home). They LOOK awesome, but they don't update unless I give them a press and Refresh them.

Am I missing something? Can I get these puppies to auto-refresh?

Well, i canned my usage of the HTC weather widget because it (or possibly something else) caused my 2.1 OTA to have the 100% awake time problem, or so i thought. (Yes, I've done the factory reset since upgrading). And even possibly contribute to the silent bug, (though i cannot say for sure that this is the case.

Also it might overlap with this other "Network Monitor" app that as of now can keep the phone awake too. So with canning my usage of those 2 things (network monitor definately does the 100% time at least as of now on my phone), i seem to be having a much more stable phone with less issues. Interesting eh?

Now I use weatherbug, and it seems to work better.

Have you tried going into the weatherbug prefs and setting the update interval?

I don't know if this was pointed to my question or not, but . . .

I have Enable Updates checked, Update Interval set to 1 hour, Battery Monitoring checked, and the Low Battery Level set to 30%.

My only thought is this: Since my phone has dipped below 30% and been recharged several times since I moved the two locational widgets to my screen (did this two days ago), I haven't yet rebooted. It may be possible that WeatherBug stops updating altogether when I dip below 30% and won't update regardless of whether I charge or not. I doubt it though, because that would screw everyone's notifications up (I know a lot of people prefer the temperature on the Status Bar).

Any thoughts?

I had the same problem and I had to menu>settings>date and time to turn the automatic time off, the location changed and I went back in and turn the automatic date/time back on. It was frustrating to say the least.

I was having incorrect weather as well. As odd as it sounds I pulled the battery and put it back in. It seemed to be accurate after that. No rhyme or reason and maybe it's just coincedence but worked for me.

Clear Data on the "HTC Weather Sync" application and it will start working again.

I'll stop right here and point out that on the 2.1 based Eris there is no "manage running applications". That setting started in Froyo.

Anyone who knows where the HTC weather app gets it's data from? The different weather forecasts on TV have somewhat different predictions, so it'd be nice to know. I am following a company which checks the accuracy of various weather forecasts (sees what they've predicted contrary to what happened).

I was having a similar issue with the weather widget (clock and weather combination widget) on my Incredible 2. It worked fine until I visited another city that's approximately 50 or so miles from my hometown. Upon visiting this city and leaving to return home, my weather/clock widget simply showed my state as my location and not my city. After deleting the widget from the homepage and restarting the phone several times, I then turned my Wi-Fi off, deleted the widget from the home page, and restarted the phone. With 3G on, I added the weather/clock widget back to the homepage and voila! It works.
