Default Temperature display in notification bar--which app is this?

So I've installed WeatherBug and OpenHome, and one of those two (I think) gives me a temperature notifier in the notification bar, so that when there's no other notifications, the temp is there instead. I really like that feature! However, when I hit TasKiller, the temp disappears. Sometimes it comes back on its own, and sometimes I have to reboot and it'll come back.

Anyone know which app is responsible for this, and how I can make the temp reliably come back without having to reboot? I've tried having TasKiller ignore both WeatherBug (I don't have the WB desktop widget running though) and OpenHome, but it still disappears.

it must be weather bug, I have the header temp and only weather bug installed. I haven't seen it go away. perhaps you killed it and it comes back when it updates. oh, don't kill the task, that's why it goes away...

Thank you, Captain Obvious. Yes, I know things go away when I kill them. I have it set to "ignore" in TasKiller though, so it shouldn't kill it. Also, when I reopen WeatherBug, the temperature display in the notification bar doesn't always come back. Hence my question.

It's weatherbug. It's the only weather app I have installed, it displays the current temperature in the notification bar. I love that feature.

The "Beautiful Widgets" app just added this feature in the last update.

the weather channel has the feature as well, it also posts notifications for weather notices like flood advisories, etc. and turns the notification icon red to indicate the advisory.

That's what I thought. So why doesn't the temp notification come back when I restart WeatherBug, and why does it go away in the first place if I have WB set to "Ignore" in TasKiller?

Default How to use weather channel

If you long tap on one of the locations in your weather channel app list and set it as home it will show up in the notification bar with that temp.

WeatherBug has always done this. I don't even use the widget, I just keep it on my phone for the statusbar notification. Love it. I didn't realize that Beautiful Widgets had added that feature though. Guess I can drop weatherbug now.

Yup, I'm using BW for this feature.

I just dumped BW for Weatherbug. I dont need the big clock as I have one in the notification tab. I like the current temp in the notification tab as well!
