Weather App that doesn't auto sync
I apologize if this has been addressed, I cannot find it specifically so I am going to ask. I am trying to find a weather app or widget, similar to the Accuweather app that was on my GS2. It did not automatically go get the weather you had to click on the refresh arrows. I liked this very much. I have tried installing the current Accuweather app but it syncs based on the time schedule you tell it with the least frequent being an hour. Since installing this app I have noticed a rather large change in my battery usage. I had not had the "cell standby" issue that others complain about until after installing this app. My phone would last over 24 hours per charge, now running under 18? Just from syncing temp once an hour? I don't think that makes sense. I have uninstalled it, but will have to wait to see what affect that will have.
I only occasionally want to know the temperature, I live in the desert and "hot"
is sometimes as accurate as I want to get. Finding out it is 118 instead of 115 is NOT really that important.
So in recap what I am looking for is a simple weather app or widget that will let me check the temp when I want, and not all day long.
