    Is there a weather app that doesn't require GPS to be on to display info in my home screen? As in, I'm fine if it will only display the weather for a fixed zip code that I give it and not update as I move around.

    I don't think any weather app requires GPS, at least none of the 5 or 6 I've tried do. Weatherbug, Raindar, WeatherUS, and any browser based link, let you use zip codes.

    Weatherbug can use GPS AFAIK. Actually, a lot of weather apps can let you just define the location. You just have to disable the "my location" feature.

    I guess it was really a widget I was trying to get to display weather info on my home screen.. but not use GPS. Apps see to work fine, but the widgets I've tried to show me the temp and such without clicking on anything.

    Thanks!

    Same applies to all widgets. Just disable the 'my location feature'. Personally use minimalistic text for weather now though. Has to do with the theme I'm using right now.
