    I agree with you Ferlop, with the only exception being that UniAW always updated at the same quick speed as Dacal's widgets of his own. But the reason for that is also something that makes UniAW so battery draining - and that's that Dacal uses an "every 20 second check" to the feed (or the myLocation.txt file and now the XML with Widget Weather). That's a unique aspect of Dacal's interaction with UniAW and his own widgets. Maybe it was Ian's brain child - not sure.. But almost all other widgets I own do NOT have that. We were also fighting with that $ajax timeout cache problem that's an iOS6 thing that Drifter and others found and got that worked out. Dacal's widgets weren't as battery draining, even with the 20 second update interval, because there weren't as many animations and eye candy as UniAW. All that to say - THAT's why we experience the crazy awesome update speeds of Ian/Dacal creations. I know they built that same update interval into the WW version of UniAW and don't know if Dacal's updated his stuff. It's an easy code line to add to pretty much any widget - I think..

    Looking forward to some conversions of widgets......At present, my coding skills are nothing to brag about, Lol
    Neither are mine... but I'm learning more daily.. I moved past one 'stuck point' with Drifter's help that's sorta opened up a whole new level of understanding about JAva.. I think I can actually be of 'use' to the forum now with some coding stuff.. Still have a LOOONG way to go...

    @Grant, can you take a look at the iwidgets posted by daddykool a couple pages back on ezra2 thread.....I tried one and it was showing nighttime weather at 9:00 in the morning.....Beautiful widgets, nonetheless.
    I'll take a look. I may NOT yet be 'your guy' on this though.. But I'll take a look..

    Ah.. Okay.. That's now clear.. Yes. I don't think 'County' is a useful option for folks in US. But these widgets are built for people around the world. I just want to 'refine' the 'city' choice aspect of the widgets so folks in the US have an option for auto-detecting 'section of a large city' and 'suburban city'. That's been my goal by adding the "auto" case to the UseExtraLocation switch in the config.js of Dacal/Ian code.

    And it does very well. Does the color scheme also work for the iwidget ? Haven't really tried it

    Yup
    It's in the options when you select the iWidget

    The only time I've seen a delay in the extra location info changing is when Fixed is selected.
    The locks or widgets using main name/city change right away to your set woeid and weather info for it.
    The extra location information doesn't change until the next refresh of the xml. (Something to do with the tweak sending that woeid back to get additional location info for that woeid and then updating it)
    On fixed this shouldn't be an issue as your telling the widgets what city you want to see and you get that city.


    Sorry if I didn't get what was being asked, it's early and I'm confused
    I think you understood my question perfectly, D. But I can confirm, simply by the way I've constructed my widgets, that in Constant mode there is often a misalignment between the main city name and the extra location information in terms of the update time. It's usually only separated by 30 seconds to 2 min, but that's still a big separation (for a mode called "constant") that I wonder if Stephen knows about. Or if it's part of the design (or limitation of the hardware/firmware). I'm not gonna be jumping up-and-down insisting on some kind of fix. But I just wanted to let you know that there definitely is a timing misalignment often thru the day When you watch a single widget that calls for both the main city data and some of the extra location data.

    And I haven't heard you speak into my question from several pages back about why the weather.app, when set to local weather, only when this new tweak is installed, shows a lot of county information rather than city. That never happened before the installation of WW. Is there some aspect of the tweak's "takeover" of weather.app that would cause this? I really never reference weather.app at all. But I'm sure others do and might wonder about this.

    The whole GPS piece is being redone when Stephen gets time.
    Really not worried about the timing of the info being updated right now until we see what the new deb is doing.
    A lot of people using this right now don't have an issue with the main city and its info that shows.


    As for the weather app, yes it does weird things with names. Has always done this.
    I've seen postal codes show in it before so county or other names are not a surprise.

    Understood. Perfectly fine. Glad to hear that Stephen's thinking of improvements even to something so wonderful as is. Thanks for the reply.

    And I have no problem with Main City either.. It can just be strange when you have a widget that shows both Main City and some other element of the Extra Location stuff - and they don't update at the same time. That's all I was referring to.

    As for the weather app, yes it does weird things with names. Has always done this.
    I've seen postal codes show in it before so county or other names are not a surprise.
    Though some city data isn't always accurate with Weather.app and never has been - there is a very distinctly different behavior when WW is installed that is a very repeatable behavior in testing.
    Without WW installed - Weather.app 99% of the time pulls a city name.
    With WW installed Weather.app pulls a County name (in US) 80% of the time when constant mode is on (haven't tested other settings in tweak besides constant).

    Just more data for you guys to have in your tweaking the tweak stages.

    Thanks, D!

    For me Grant, even without the WW tweak, the weather app almost always pulled county for me when set to local weather. I'm not gonna throw out some percentage that I can't prove so ill just leave it at "almost always". Just not comfortable giving a percentage that can't be backed up with data.

    So, I really don't think the tweak did anything. You may just not have noticed it before.

    Exactly, those stats mean nothing.
    I have the tweak on one phone and not on another one.
    Weather app on both has exact same info wherever I am.

    Exactly Durben. I too have another non jail broken 4s and the weather app shows my county at times just like my jail broken i5. I really just think he never paid attention before because native sucked and GPS ruled the streets.

    Completely appropriate observation. I've just done current testing over a couple of phones and there seemed to be a difference when tweak was installed and when not. But I will completely concede that it certainly isn't conclusive testing.

    Yeah, fair enough, D. It could be pure coincidence. I will drop it. It helps hearing from others - their experiences.

    Also the extra location info was put in as a backup for if there was an issue with city showing.
    I can see that some like to have it all showing but it's intention is for showing as an alternative.
    Making widgets that use just that info (locale information) is an option sure but looking at "fixing" a timing issue to support that is least on the list of to-do's
    We will see how an update to the GPS localization goes before trying to change anything with the current deb.

    Another thing is compatibility issues with lockinfo will also be looked at but there's no promise they can be compatible.
