    The widgets DO know my location. So MyLocation works fine, as all widgets know my current location. However, only the weather info doesn't update automatically.

    You're saying that LG iWeather by Schnedi might be old ? Is there any new iWidget that I can check to see if it's iWidget related to simply the widget itself is outdated ?

    All the guys that are helping you are great at what they do - but I think they missed one main point - your weather WORKS!!!. If it were one of the 'old' widgets without the proper Yahoo address - you wouldn't be seeing ANY weather info at all - and you do. And Sig Change only needs to be on when you're changing location. It has nothing to do with whether or not your widget shows data. If your myLocation.txt file has coordinates in it - it will show weather.

    But King's point IS interesting - that YOU are our FIRST one to say 'no weather updating' on iOS 5.1.1.. ALL of our folks have had their issues ONLY since iOS6.

    King - that bring up a VERY INTERESTING QUESTION.. Is there ANY way that the 'feed itself' from Yahoo - the new one we're using - is 'holding back' updates from happening? The call goes out in the code - but something on their end - says - HEY, you just updated 3 minutes ago - or 10 minutes ago. Ian and Dacal checked out the service and found out we have up to 1000 requests a day per IP address or MAC address - but WHAT IF this new service has some 'GOVERNOR' or 'THROTTLING' of sorts that simply ignores TOO MANY requests within too short a period. That sure would explain a lot. My issues that have remained 'after' RESET ALL - are day to night weather changes at sunset and occasionally I respring for another reason and immediately notice a new weather condition than before my respring. The widget's location not changing is an easy thing to spot/detect. But it's harder for us to detect whether or not we're getting the most recent sends from Yahoo. We'd only know if we hit the refresh button in a handful of widgets or respring and immediately change. Hmmmm...

    I tried adding the yahoo code rather than use GPS, and also played with the other settings, weather data will never update automatically unless I press the refresh button.

    Try my LS widget here and test it and see if it does the same thing? You need wallpaper jepifier

    @NewD it's a good point about yahoo limiting the calls but if that we're the case I'd be screwed
    I respring/and or run the html in iFile for multiple widgets everyday. I would see this on my end for sure if that were happening but I don't.

    I just got it thanks. I need an hour or two before weather changes to see if it updates.

    **EDIT**

    I can confirm that the LS updated automatically. However LG iWidget by Schnedi did not. I think it's widget related then.

    **EDIT2**

    Where can I find other iWidgets then that I can add to my homescreen, I always thought the problem was from iWidget and was waiting for a fix through an update... maybe an update conflicted with the current widget I have ??

    I posted a link to check the feed somewhere, maybe we need to have people check using that to verify that the info is available to them.

    I'm at a loss here, just looking for some common variable.

    Oh !! You are Schnedi himself !! Didn't think I'll find you here !! Almost all the widgets i'm using are made by you, keep up the good work

    I'm glad I pointed out the problem for you to fix, I thought others would do that somehow ..

    For other widget developers here, don't you guys have a blog or something that should be easier to hear user feedback ? I had to subscribe to this forum just to voice my concern. Maybe create a youtube page that showcase your widgets or something, and users can comment on them and provide feedback.

    Fair enough. Yeah I found it by googling iWidgets. But I still believe an easier way to provide feedback allows users to easily send problems with their apps.

    I meant for people not in the forum. The only reason I registered to ask about it is after waiting a month or two with no fix. Other users may not bother registering at all and the developers won't know if the Widget is running correctly. Just like the case I have here with Schnedi's widget.

    You can still contact him through cydia!

    That would be the most logical way.

    If your looking for iWidgets I don't have any of them but search Cydia for DB iWidget pack and he's got a bunch in it and a couple that's individual downloads also but you really just got to look around
