    Just give me the comparison between the accuweather info compared to the stock app info. At least all the info for the current day and maybe a day or 2 of forecast. I just want to see how it compares for your area under normal conditions.

    Yahoo changed the XML request for the forecast. Find "Marty McFly" and check his sig for the fix. Look for him in the UniAW6 thread.

    I originally posted this in the Elite thread - but the discussion more properly belongs here I think.. About King and Durben's progress on a new weather data paradigm:

    Presently though all info updates on its own. City changes when NC is pulled down or weather app is opened and the file updates that on its next set interval. It may be changing on its own though. Something ill check today as previously we had been opening NC to check if it had updated which kicked in the new location.
    Regardless there's a gps portion being built into the tweak, kinda like tricking the weather app to think it did it itself and parse the info accordingly. Needless to say I'm extremely happy with seeing this become a reality. Very very pleased so far
    Excited to hear progress. The weather auto updating is a particular WIN for you guys since that was working BEFORE iOS6 but not after. The city auto updating, though, is the price of my ultimate switchover to it - AND - if the 'level' of Yahoo service is as accurate for small suburbs close to major cities.

    I finally learned yesterday that Native uses Yahoo (information was being 'withheld' from me in my early questions about Native ). And you know how I feel about Yahoo. But in my early tests the weather data from our Yahoo widgets does NOT match the data I see in the Weather.app. That means Apple's feed from Yahoo is DIFFERENT than our XML one in the widgets. Interesting. So if the Native feed is more 'accurate' I may be won back over..

    Quite simply Grant, when the tweak is released, you try it.
    You don't like the info provided, you go back to accuweather as it suits you best.
    Personally I'd use this tweak as is (even without the city update on its own, I don't use MyLocation right now as always on so it's virtually the same. Open NC to get my city or turn sig change on off to set city)
    Not saying I don't want it to be automatic, that would be great but I can definitely live without it.
    Although its possible we already have the city update on its own. Brian is testing more today.

    This is so easy to write out widgets to grab the info. Info your phone sends/receives requests for already.
    Think of how we do things now. You need a config to set up widgets. You need to set up all widgets independently for things like C or F ect.
    With this tweak, almost all if that will be in the Settings app.
    Then every widget based on the tweak will work the same way. No additional setup (unless of course there's variables for things like choosing icon sets and things like that)

    Like I said though, you will either be happy with what your Weather app is providing or you won't.
    You can tell this already by using a local setting for your weather app and see what info is provided.
    If you don't like the Weather app on the phone you won't like the tweak.

    If you do like what the weather app tells you then you'll probably like what we are doing and will likely use it.
    As I mentioned in Ian's thread, we are not trying to replace other methods, we are building an alternate method.
    I use "we" lightly as the majority of the work is being done by the awesome dev who jumped on board with little more than asking "hey, you think you can do this?"

    This sounds really awesome Durben. I personally never had an issue with pulling down the NC to change my location for native weather widgets.

    I don't understand Grants issue with it being 1 degree off like he stated earlier. Seems a silly thing to be concerned about but that's just me I guess.

    Thanks for the updates Durben and King.

    I don't think that Grant was complaining, I was just trying to get a feel for how the Native app compared to Accuweather, as he was one that always had issues with Yahoo. I had asked him to give me that info, because I never had a problem with Yahoo, but I find that Accuweather sucks. So I was just looking for someone to get some reliable data from.

    Don't be hard on him this time, I requested this from him.

    Just wait, I'm sure there'll be something else that you can jump on him for sooner or later!

    Hey bro, hows it going? I don't see you around much, but that's probably because I don't visit as many of the popular theme threads either. I just can't stand the drama. Even today, I poke into e6 and there it was!

    I hear you, D. Still very intrigued. The only time you'll hear me "pushing an agenda" is in these early days when 'precedent is being set'.. Although I hear you saying that "we just wanna give you another option" - you and I both know that widget designers will end up favoring "one".. I just want to make sure "that one" is auto-updating for city. Whether it's based on Yahoo or not (which Native is) is really less of an issue when I'm trying to be an "influencing voice" for the community's interests as a whole. I accept that my Yahoo issue is personal (though I'm not alone by any means). But not auto-updating for City would be a bad idea "for the community" (in my strong, informed conviction).

    But once one surfaces as the mainstay I won't be an azz about it. I'll support it. But in this "influence" period - "Old Grant" is back for awhile.. .. It's nothing personal, D. Wind in your sails. This argument for auto city update is just about what's best for the community. We see that point differently. No big.

    What's up man? Yeah I'm not around much either, at least not like before. I'm not feeling the drama as much as I used too u know. A lot of egos and such, which is fine but I'm losing interest in that. Don't know what wrong with me. Lol.

    The only thread I have been a little active in is Motif. Love that theme and the thread has been damn near drama free, outside of just a few quick exchanges.

    Grant, sorry about my post, I was unaware that King asked for comparisons. That's on me.

    Yeah. I figured you just weren't caught up, bro. I gave you benefit of the doubt. . All good!

    I'll have to check out motif. I'm wondering where the hoards from e6 have gone. That's down to 2-4 pages a day.. Where's the new "hip/happenin'" thread these days?

    I appreciate you giving me the benefit of the doubt. I feel like I don't even know u anymore. Lol

    While I don't know if elite people have left for motif, I can say I have. Still love elite and will always use it but my theme preference as of late has been to add a little color to my device. I have ran dark themes for so long that I have decided to change it up a bit. No disrespect to any other theme. This is me for the past 2 weeks.


    You should check it out Grant.

    About 100 or so.

    I bought this theme, and was onboard the first day or 2 prior to release, but then I got tied up in this new tweak thing, and I just never made it back and havent even loaded it yet. I did the same with Shine too.

    Thanks for the updates Durben and King.
    I agree with the pulling down NC
    I use MyLocation app like that now. Open turn on/off to set city.
    One reason is because I just don't see the need for it to be constantly running in the BG for me. The other reason is I like to see what apps are actually using my location service. If its one I don't want to I'll see the icon in star bar and know. If MyLocation is running I always see it. I could always go to settings and check or turn off but it's good for new apps to see this way.
    This tweak presently is no different to doing what I do with MyLocation.

    Not saying it shouldn't auto update as it would be a nice benefit. The greater benefit right now is we are pulling the info the phone already checks for on its own. And it's doing it without using many resources at all (battery/ram)

    I think you will like this option my man. It's been fun so far.
    Pretty simply done. In the js the forecast scripts (daily/hourly) probably account for 2/3 of the whole js
    Really not much to it for all the info we are currently getting.

    We don't see that point differently. I would live to have it change cities with ease in the background.
    It's what we are trying to get presently.
    Aside from that particular part, this is already a fully functioning tweak. It just works.

    And you can't speak on "what's best for the community" as a whole.
    I can tell you for certain there's a lot if users like me who don't leave MyLocation app running.
    Likely as many that do. Personal choice as I noted my reasons above.
    Many people in this community would use this tweak as it is right now.

    Still doesn't mean we aren't pushing for the GPS piece to get added. If its at all possible it will be.

    You still didn't answer on the "are you happy with your weather apps info?"

    Cause if your not, there's no point in even considering this tweak as that is the info your gonna see.
    For me I'm quite happy with my weather apps info. Accurate for me all the time.

    From how King explained it to me, the MyLocation app doesn't run always in the background, D. At least not how it seems you're implying; using resources.
    This tweak presently is no different to doing what I do with MyLocation.

    Not saying it shouldn't auto update as it would be a nice benefit.
    I use the MyLoc app similarly when at home. But we live in the world of GPS now. My main beef is that it seems like you'd be ready to release it without even an option for GPS auto-update of city... At least with myLocation App we have an option of it changing cities automatically for those of us who do a lot of traveling.
    The greater benefit right now is we are pulling the info the phone already checks for on its own. And it's doing it without using many resources at all (battery/ram)
    I don't think the current scripts in GPS weather widgets use more resources.. do they? If so - how? Just wanna get myself more educated. You guys are the teachers. I'm a learner here on this topic.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!
