N8: Accuweather Widget keeps going wrong

I did a full reset of my phone a few months ago, and one thing that wasn't a problem before but now is, is the Accuweather widget doesn't seem to work.

 

By 'doesn't work' I mean - when I install it, it finds where I am and reports the weather on my homescreen. Then, at some point it loses my position and will never, ever find it again. The widget just says 'waiting for location' constantly, and if I open the app I get a search field which has a wifi icon with a cross through it, and if I try to enter anything into the search field, nothing happens.

 

I find this widget immensely useful - when it works - anyone have any idea why it doesn't seem to want to work any more on my phone?

 

Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times and always have the same problem.

Re: N8: Accuweather Widget keeps going wrong

I've had the issue in the past and it's a pain ! Mainly with N97 but also E7 , don't know a cure , it seems to have a will of it's own , if you want a nice alternative . Try The Weather from Ovi store , it's really good and also has a widget :smileyhappy:

Accuweather has many bugs and it is a shame that there is no good weather widget available. I tried the alternatives and was not impressed.

Thanks for that! The Weather seems to work ... however I don't really like the way it looks! Accuweather widget used the current theme with a nice dark grey box, however TheWeather is big bold and bright blue!

 

It's nice it has more info displayed than Accuweather - anyone else interested in an alternative to Accuweather I certainly recommend checking it out.

 

Are there any other alternatives out there? It would be great if there is one that also shows info on the wind!

I don't see anything about a widget on that.

Re: N8: Accuweather Widget keeps going wrong

Not sure if there is one ! Sorry. You can try SPB weather and see if it's worth the cost to you, gives a good interface and some cool animation, but comes at a cost !!

Jezston, I was having the same issue. I accidentaly opened up options, and noticed a choice that said something about widgets and online. I selected that and the widget is woking just fine once again. I am in the USA. Hope this helps you also!

Re: N8: Accuweather Widget keeps going wrong

I have the same issue everytime N8 losses GPRS connection. When it reconnect, accuweather would not update.

I have to restart N8 for it to work normally again.
