    The primary use, Eldwin, is to enable weather walls and timed walls (that change at specified time intervals) to be behind the icons - not covering them up.

    Though I'm a guy that's always all for more options in a tweak… The simple truth is that when Saurik is able to allow HTML back on the springboard and lockscreen, most of us will have this walls-behind-icons option back again in the way that we're used to working with it and theming for.

    But I don't speak for the group. That's just my thoughts. Having the switch for -20 pixels lock on first instantiation of an iWidget is a higher priority on my list.

    Thanks Eldwin for staying attentive to our needs. Without your tweak I could never accomplish this:

    First, you need to turn user interaction off.

    Then you need to get iWidgetTapper from Cydia.
    Think that widget is also calling for a user wallpaper that may not be in iOS 7
    Pretty sure I used the thumbnail though.

    If he means anything else, like with tapper ect I'm not sure.

    MyLocation is from another thread.
    Why would it get updated on this one for the first post?

    Plus since crazyvivek made it, bushe was the one to update it for iOS 6

    This is iWidgets and even though some are written to use MyLocation it doesn't belong on eldwins first post.

    ^^ good enough, but then when someone asks for a link or repo, perhaps not responding with "it's been posted many times, go fish". If you what members to participate, it would be easier then 'hide and seek'.

    iWidgets the majority use either myLocation or Widget Weather as their engine for data. I think it is completely appropriate for it to be on the first page of this post. It's asked for SO many time in this thread. A reference to myLocation AND Widget Weather should be in post 1 in my opinion.

    Agree, I myself have had to hunt for links/repos when not joining the party/thread in it's inception. As it develops into many things it's hard to keep track of what's going on.
    Walking into this and other threads as a n00b to it, you have perhaps 2 choices, read 100's/1000's of posts or ask a question.
    Why not make it easier to navigate or maybe start a entirely new thread. Doe-no...........

    You're asking eldwin to post a tweak he didn't make on his thread.
    I guess if I have to explain this again, you don't see what I see is wrong with that.

    I do agree it should be easier to find but not here.
    He will end up with support emails/PMs ect
    Bad idea IMO

    Since we're kind of on the topic of MyLocation, I'm having a problem with it that hopefully someone can help me with. I installed it, rebooted, and have just sig. change on. The problem is it's not updating my location on my weather widgets. The weather updates fine, but it is not detecting my location as I travel. Sometimes closing and reopening MyLocation works, sometimes it doesn't. I used it on iOS 6 with no issues, but can't seem to get it to function properly on iOS 7 (iPhone 5 on 7.0.4). Any thoughts?

    Then simply have a link to the WidgetWeather engine and myLocation engine threads in post 1. That would be a compromise. Something needs to be done, D.

    Personally I don't care. I don't even MyLocation installed.
    In regards to that app/tweak I don't think that's fair to stick on another developer when the original hasn't been around for support for ages. Bushe code signed it last time. This time it's a bit more work I would think and it's not even his app either.

    And WidgetWeather doesn't need to be linked anywhere.
    It's on Cydia.

    Try turning on GPS as well. It will use more battery though.
    If that doesn't help try resetting your network settings on phone.

    Hi eldwin,

    If the "behind the icons" is doable (great news BTY) I think it would be best done as a settings option if possible (I think King or Durben mentioned this).
    Then like Durben says, we would need another way of adding/removing iWidgets from the screen?

    Like Grant says it's mainly so we can use full screen walls and some "behind the icons" weather iWidgets.

    Have you seen the tweak "HS Design" (Home Screen Design)? I think if iWidgets could use the same kind of adjustable grid for widget placement would be great too, this would mean we set the grid to zero X zero and could snap a full screen iWidget to the top of the screen or if we are using more than one iWidget on a page we can get them all lined up perfectly by setting the grid as we like.

    Sorry I have too many idea's, but I feel iWidgets has so much potential.

    PS. I have started on my Object-C tutorials, thanks pal.

    I'm just wondering, if you used Xcode instead of Theos would it be possible for you to make a tweak like this for normal non-jailbroken iPhones? I recon you would make a mint if this was in the App Store.

    I'm sorry, D. I think you misunderstood. Or I didn't explain well. Probably the latter. I don't mean 'linked' in the sense of a link to a download of the tweak. I meant a link to the 'thread' - where it IS talked about and where the responsible dev listens and answers question (you and Brian for WW and Bushe for myLocation). iWidgets alone - as introduced on page 1 only has info about the 2 Eldwin created. Since then iWidgets have become SO much more. They are driven by one of two engines. And believer me, myLocation is ALIVE and well out there. And even more iWidgets are made for it than WW at this point. I just think a person delving into iWidgets should know the primary engines that drive them. By all means - don't make Eldwin responsible for any email that will come his way. Simply.

    "If you have any questions about the two weather engines that drive many iWidgets - see WW here (link to thread) and myLocation here - link to thread. That's all I was suggesting. I don't really care either -- except that the vast majority of questions asked in this thread are about how to 'get the Weather iWidgets to work. Just think it would serve newcomers better. End of my input. It's Eldwin's thread. I'll leave answering the FAQ of the engine to most iWidgets to others from here on out. Just tires me.

    I've been thinking about this too. Ian are you familiar with phonegap? It's supposed to be used for making native apps out of html js and css and essentially "wraps" it in Xcode etc for varying platforms. I wonder if someone was to create a tweak and have it run "natively" via phonegap, if we could harness ios7's ui features exclusive to Xcode as well as run uniaw in any format we choose, like a regular ios setting. I haven't even began researching to see if this is just a fools errand or actually something that could work. Sorry to jump in and kinda ramble OT...

    I was wondering if anyone can help me.

    I've installed the iWidgets and iMinions pack, however whenever I follow the instructions in the first post to bring up iWidgets, I get nothing.

    Can anyone confirm to me how to get iWidgets up?

    Did you try to reboot/respring then try to tap in an open position
