    Hi all, I just got the S4 recently and I have been having an issue with some widgets. Specifically, most of the weather widgets that I used to use seem to be working. I don't have any problems adding the generic samsung one to my homescreen, but when I try to add other widgets, such as "weather" by Macropinch or "eye in the sky weather", they don't appear. I haven't had problems with any of my other widgets, it seems to be just the weather ones. The only non-samsung one that worked was "android weather & clock", which is not aesthetically pleasing :/. Anyone have any ideas?

    I can't speak specifically to those, but I can tell you that the WeatherBug widget, which I use, works fine.
    As I recall there are two choices to the S4 launcher, I don't recall the exact terminology, but it's basically 'standard' and 'mini'.
    I wonder if you're using the 'mini' launcher and it doesn't like the 3rd party widgets. I don't know this to be the case, just speculating.

    Make sure your GPS is enabled when adding the widgets otherwise it won't be able to lock on a location and will cause the widget to malfunction and sometimes not appear on your screens.
