    Besides NewD, and a few others, no issues were brought up by anyone.

    The only emails we received were asking for more information to be added.

    Things are working as expected.

    As for the extra location info, this was put in for a fallback reason if the main city did not show for some. It's not meant to be a go to for the widgets all the time. You don't get different weather because the neighbourhood says a different name than the main city. You just get a neighbourhood name to put in place of the city that the tweak is pulling the info for.
    I'm fully aware of all that intent, bro. You've mentioned 'many' times. My only question would be about 'main city' info. If the 'extra location' information stopped working, I'd be disappointed, but I wouldn't think anything less of the brilliance of the tweak - though some of what makes it "brilliant" IS the extra info. I was just wondering IF Stephen, in fixing the the sticking problem, needed to adopt a 'less pinpointing' GPS service. That's all..

    And with respect to the 4000 users... I don't think any of them have gone 'as deep' with the tweak's capabilities and applications as I have.

    I don't know about that Grant. I think the beta team was pretty extensive in their testing.

    @Durben. 4000 downloads with very little support emails. That is amazing man.

    Updates working great for me now! Awesome work guys. Heading over to buy steph a beer or several now. Just started to use WW 3 days ago (dealing with life) and read through the whole thread. Is there's way to keep the animated weather on? Or make that the default when opened? I am currently using the RKO mod. Nice job.
    Later, HIP5

    Yeah. Fair enough, Krima. And it is amazing that not many support emails were needed if that's what you're implying..

    ...

    The way home tonight.. No updating at all - without some intervention from me - switching on and off Location services toggle - or swiping down NC.. I kept my hands off it for the first 8 miles (through three distinct cities that updated in the page 1 1.4-8 version and all prior versions) - but nothing with 1.4-9 from Cydia.. Stuck.. Ever since I've downloaded a version from Cydia -- the tweak has been nearly useless to me. Exactly like Bliken's issue but then it seemed to unstick for him. Blik, are you out there? Is 1.4-9 working flawlessly for you?

    Because so many people have seen improvement and are having no troubles.. I have to assume that my particular phone has some issue - or some tweak I have is a conflict with Widget Weather. But to figure out whether it's a 'new issue' or older one - I need to see if the original 1.4-8 from page 1 - still works as well as it did - at least SOME of the time.

    Damn - when this tweak is running at the top of its game - it's my favorite. Something's wrong and it's SO frustrating. I actually had to reinstall myLocation and all those widgets....

    Unfortunately, I haven't been posting much. Been try to catch up on some stuff. But let me put some minds at ease. Most of the issues that have been happening in the last day or 2 is because of yahoo and the release of iOS 7 today. In addition, yahoo released an update for their own weather app. So there has been some switching of the server/scripting updating going on according to my sources. It may continue intermittently for another day or 2. So just hang tight with some of the erroneous info that you have been experiencing. All should be running fairly smoothly soon. Well, at least as smooth as before. From my understanding, the location issues were only temporary and most were sorted about 24 hours ago and that would have only affected close accuracy.

    Happy widgeting!

    Wow. Very helpful, King. Thanks. I didn't think about that angle. So many are just reporting "works great".. So I thought I was the odd man out.

    So - in terms of the mechanics of the tweak.. The fact that the gps log and shows LOTS of updating and new coordinates - is only part of the picture? After the coordinates are achieved by the tweak - then the tweak has to query a feed from Yahoo before the XML is acutally updated? Is that what you're basically saying? So if that Yahoo feed is slow.. then the XML won't update?

    Yahoo tests quite a bit, but sometimes poop happens at the final release. Most of it should be sorted now, but when you go from a few thousand users to millions overnight, poop happens.

    Not trying to be dense - but I think I missed something. What did Yahoo just launch that took their user base from a few thousand to millions? I would have thought Yahoo was already in the. "Millions" category.

    The feed for iOS 7 is different. So what had been only devs and hackers using it , changed to the entire world using it, I think my vague estimations are reasonable. I've not seen the actual numbers for iOS 7 yet, but I think I'm in the right ball park.

    Thanks, King. So how would that affect the feed that's already being used by 10's of millions of iPhone users in weather.app that Weather Widget taps into? That one's not been just being used by hackers and devs but by very many.

    That was part of my point. That because things changed with iOS 7, including an updated weather app of their own, that there were some small hiccups in their overall distribution of service. I don't have all the answers, I was just given a mere "hey what you are experiencing is normal and may take an additional day or 2 to get it ironed out", that's all. Sometimes ya gotta read between the lines and connect a few dots.

    yeah.. yeah.. Thanks, King.. I'm feeling that.. Thanks for your thoughts. I'm sure hoping things return to normal. I have a 'lot invested now' in this tweak... It's 'launched' my coding bug.. and I can't even test my stuff these days for that lack of updating of the tweak even after 1.4-9.
