    I have a trip from my home in Philly area to upstate NewYork today. So far the updating has been perfect today. After my cold boot last night it's like WW is completely happy in Constant Mode.

    Fun! I know.. I'm a friggin geek about this stuff..
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    And Durben & King.. Do you guys keep your phones on 24/7 just recharging overnight? Never a cold boot? Or do you daily cold boot?

    I don't.. Never cold boot. And last night my phone ran out of battery and was off for a couple of hours. When I rebooted this am.. Widget Weather on my drive to work today auto updated 5 times - exact amount it should for the areas I travel thru. Perfect. For the last "three days" I've needed to create an activator gesture for toggling on and off Loc Services to force WW to update.

    Would that maybe indicate that a fix to the GPS localization process that Stephen's undertaking may not solve this at all? That maybe we're dealing with an $ajax cache stuck issue like we were hunting down for months with myLocation? If the tweak CAN, EVER, work perfectly and can seemingly be gotten "unstuck" by a simple cold reboot - then the basic localization process has to be sound. No?

    What would I be missing in that "best guess"?
    Mostly my phone is always on. Even at night when charging.

    As I've said already, the localization side is being redone.
    Until it is, we don't know what issues it may or not fix or any others that may come up.

    A full boot of your phone resets pretty much everything so it's not surprising that tweaks then kick in when it boots up.


    "If the tweak CAN, EVER, work perfectly"

    Come on now....

    True!
    It is appreciative that Grant is posting about lots of different subjects as this can be very informative for "noobs" that would like to know but are too scared to ask. However, filling page after page with the same location name subject is overload. We all know that Yahoo's location name system is, well, quite far from perfect. I know why I have used Google's location name system instead over the last 18 month or so, maybe Grant you should try that as well.

    Ian's suggestion about the Xcode project files is potentially a good idea, but would suggest to still have one person/team that is in the final control of tweak update releases, just to prevent a confusing number of individual tweak version floating around
    We wouldn't be posting these up. They would just be PMs
    And we would still be only pushing the tweak that comes from Stephen
    Even if implementing say for example that Ian looked at it and found something useable, would be incorporated in release.

    Tap can be used in an iWidget. But not swipe gestures. Swiping will move the whole SB page.
    If you override that with a tweak you won't be able to swipe your SB pages back and forth.

    Swipe gestures can be used on the lockscreen though.
    True. It would be like making a completely different tweak and somehow incorporating it with WW. Probably would be a ton of work for something that would more of a novelty than a useful feature.

    Google location works the best of all location name services.
    Based on latitude and longitude I get the correct county (yahoo & iOS Weather App give me the neighbouring county!), the correct village name (Yahoo does not know it, but iOS Weather Apps does sometimes) and I also get the correct street name. OK, the house number is wrong, but all sat navs I have used do the same, however even with wrong house number my location is spot on on Google maps. That's why I have been using Google location service for so long.
    Being able to switch between Yahoo, Weather Underground and WorldWeatherOnline within seconds, there is always a difference between what they report, Yahoo seems to lag from a time delay. For example, we have showers right now, Yahoo says "Partly Cloudy". 45 minutes later the showers had stopped 20 minutes ago and Yahoo now says "Light rain". You see what I mean.
    None of the three weather services is perfect and spot on every time, but I found Weather Underground to be the best of them. btw Weather Underground have a free weather app, really quite nice!

    This sounds like a very sensible idea to me.

    If you are using the semi or constant mode for location, then yes, location services need to be turned on so that it can access the GPS chip and get your current location.

    Location services should be on if your using Constant or Semi
    As for the update time, yes it gets stuck for people sometimes. Toggle Semi to Constant or vice versa or reboot your phone

    The trip from Philly to Woodstock NY went great. Nice day. Nice 3 hour drive.

    WW did a great job. When "unstuck" it would literally change city/township info as I'd cross the township line sign itself. It was crazy.. But about 25-35 minutes in (even after any one flick off and on of LocSrvcs) it would get stuck and not change; sometimes not even after a cold reboot.

    But we already know this.

    Can't wait for a fix. When working as designed the accuracy is on the $ for me for weather/location updates.

    This hasn't been said before - but the chance of it "sticking" for me today was greater when only 4G service was available. LTE had longer periods of consistency.

    I also had several occasions where flicking power switch into sleep and out of sleep was enough for an update to occur. Others have reported that too.

    On the trip WW updated 50-60 times with unique info. My myLocation-based City Widget updated half that many times.

    WW rules!

    Ras - you make this geek eager to try Weather Underground's feed. I think you posted the feed to it a few pages back?

    I went from the East of Bermuda, to the middle of Bermuda, then back to the East of Bermuda today. I didn't check my phone as I was driving (I don't really like to cause accidents), well technically riding. My LS showed the weather before I left, while I was at work, then when I got back home. Yippee.

    Try the free Weather Underground App first to see if it is any better then Yahoo BEFORE you get into the code munching.
    What I posted a few pages back in this thread was the Google location name service.
    I posted the Weather Underground response file somewhere, can't remember which thread.
    However you would need a free API key in order to get the feed from Weather Underground.
    There is a very good documentation at their website.

    Default WidgetWeather UniAW6.4 McFly.theme
    Hi all,

    I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the weekend

    Thanks to Ian and Dacal, I am extremely happy!!

    For the last little while, any time I would use my WW mod, I would always miss the cool Accuweather forecast descriptions and the UV Index. Conversely, anytime I would use the "regular UniAW" version, I would miss the hourly forecast!

    Well, now thanks to these amazing individuals, we have the best of both worlds (to quote King).

    Here is the latest "WidgetWeather UniAW6.4 McFly.theme" (credit to Max for the design as always):

    Widget Weather-photo-2.png

    This is good for i4 & i5. LOTS of little changes as usual! I've posted this theme enough that I won't go into ALL of the features it has because I'm sure most of you know by now

    One of my favourites now though is anytime 'City' is blank, it will be replaced with Postal Code. Any time 'Neighborhood' is blank, it will show 'County' information instead. Not sure if this is useful for anyone else but it's amazing for me

    Many thanks again to Ian and Dacal. All of the work you guys do is just EPIC! Can't thank you enough.


    Download Link: WidgetWeather UniAW6.4 McFly.theme.zip

    Enjoy!

    P.S. Links from my last release have been replaced with this one
    P.P.S. When County information appears, it says "County of" but only in English - no translations - sorry
    P.P.P.S Unfortunately no translations for the Accuweather forecast descriptions either - sorry again

    Nice work, Marty!! Interesting.. I've never had WW not report a City for me. There's always obj.city and obj.name pulled to the XML for me. What WOEID gives you a blank city?

    Answered you on Ezra thread man. You need to purchase Ezra2 and run the lock above that theme in winterboard
