    I just started using Launcher Pro and really missed the HTC Weather/Clock widget, people suggested Beautiful Widgets from the market. It was $1.84 and totally worth it. Try that instead?

    You realize that storm came very quickly. Here in NW Indiana, it was sunny and then in less than 5 mins all hell broke loose. :D

    Anyone know why I can't set the weather widget to automatically update? When i go to menu > settings > check auto update > confirm yes the setting doesn't stick. I click menu > settings again, and the auto update box is unchecked. Anyone else have this problem?

    You probably didn't sent update frequency to 1 hour.

    yeah i check the box for automatic updates, it wants to confirm so i press yes, set update frequency to 1 hour, hit back, press menu and go back to settings and the box is unchecked.

    glitch i guess....

    I'm trying out Fancy Widget. Looks just like the Sense clock (minus the pop up effects :( )

    I'll give it a day or two and give you my verdict.

    I used that for a few days when i tried out one of the launcher programs. Its pretty good. The only differneces are that it doesn't have the animated weather, the alarm clock and timer gadgets, and the numbers on the clock seemed to not be as high resolution or quality. The only plus i got was that when you click the weather part, instead of loading the full weather app, it loads a quick and easy pop up with the 4 day weather forecast.

    Don't know about the weather info, but it definitely sucks for location. Takes forever to update "my location" and at work, from time to time my location is simply "5" instead of the city name. Meanwhile, weather bug, the weather channel, and beautiful widgets pick up my location quickly and accurately (never see that "5"). HTC's clock/weather/location widget needs some work. I removed it about 5 weeks ago and haven't looked back.

    For those of you having issues with keeping the weather widget going.. be sure to check the following (and this also fixes the "Update Frequency Won't Stick")

    Menu > Settings > Accounts & Sync

    Make sure Auto-Sync is ticked, or else the auto-update for the Weather will not stick, no matter how many times you try and apply it from the Weather widget's end.

    Then just tick the Weather to be apart of the "Auto-Sync" and it should be good.

    I know whenever I enter a different "area" it updates..

    I live in Mt. Pleasant SC (SubCity of Charleston), and it shows Mt. P at my home.. "Charleston" is Downtown.. North Charleston is.. well North Charleston - etc etc..

    Granted the Weather info isn't radar worthy.. but at least everytime I go to look at it, its updated now..

    And I'm hoping another plus is that it works (unlike the Htc one.). I'm hoping they get the currentbugs fixed in the next OTA (but then I've been hoping htc would fix their cool weather widget since I had one on the Wing.)

    Only gripe I have with HTC weather widget is that is shows daytime until 10pm. I live in the deep south. It gets dark at 8:30 in the summer.

    It does have some of the coolest graphics tho, so I'm sticking with it.

    I have problems with my weather widget updating, but I have Auto-Sync checked and it stays checked. Still no updates. Any ideas?

    Where do HTC and Beautiful Widgets get their weather info from?
    Neither one seems to be all that accurate, at least not on a consistent basis. Some days not even with the current temperature!

    Oh and the HTC widget is WAY off with the sun and moon here in NC!

    :p

    I am having issues with the HTC weather app also.

    I live in Corona, CA and I work in Los Angeles. When I leave in the morning to go to work it shows Corona, CA and when I get to LA it still shows Corona all day.

    I even went to AZ recently and the whole time I was there it showed Corona, CA. Yes I have "location on".

    It even shows 2 Corona, CA locations when I go to delete locations and I "X" the Corona, CA location and it never deletes.

    You have sync off on your power options.

    i removed the weather widget from my home screen. i'm using one of the analog clock faces and the Weather Channel widget, and it's much better.
