    Been using the weather widget free. Love it. However, lately its been telling me that its sunny at night when it should say clear. the moon icon is correct and still shows up.

    Anyways.....so yesterday I downloaded Beautiful widgets which appear to be back in the market and it tells me that its sunny at night too?

    Any idea why?


    Also a question for beautiful widget owners. They said the weather animates. So far I have not seen any animations at all on the homescreen widget. Am I doing something wrong?
    If there are no animations and if its going to tell me that its sunny outside.....I'm returning it.


    Perhaps its my eyes....maybe it is sunny at night. :)

    Make sure your location is correct, and the auto network location is enabled.

    That's the thing......My location is correct....and the icon that shoes up at night is the moon, not the sun.

    ha ha!!!!!!
    I don't live in Alaska, Tierra del Fuego or Philly.......but Phoenix, AZ


    I guess that does make sense after all.



    I guess I'll just have to wait for Google's servers.

    Thanks!

    i had just downloaded that when the problems had started. before i knew it was google i emailed the dev. and told them what the problem was. What a f*&%in joke he was. didnt help a bit. I described exactly what the problem was, i did not have any task killers installed, i had deleted and reinstalled with widget on the homescreen, where my location was, and i was not the only one having the problem. Through 3 emails his responses were
    1 email. do you have any task killers installed?
    answer was in original email
    2nd email. what is your location
    answer was in original email
    3rd email. try deleting and readding widgit
    answer was in original email

    Yeah, it sucks when people don't seem to read information that you already gave them in an email...but to be fair.....you were asking him stuff that he had no idea about simply because his app just pulled it off google.

    When you ask the milkman for the mail....don't be surprised if he does not have it or any idea about it :)

    Anyway...weather seems like it's working for me. Last night was 'clear'
