    Make sure you set the permissions correctly on Widgets.app and its contents. Should be 0755.

    It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to list widgets that work or don't work as people try them out. Just a thought.

    A "sticky" post showing widgets that work or don't work might not be a bad idea

    Do any of the radio widgets work on the iPhone. That would be great to have. I would love to stream some shoutcast through wi-fi.

    Can anybody help:
    1) I put the "widget" app into the app folder
    2) I put the Widget Resources where they belong
    3) I put the widgets where they belong (created the folder)
    4) Restarted the iPhone

    Now I have the widget app on and when I launch them the widgets show up but don't really work:
    1) weahter only says cupertino and temp, can't change anything
    2) calender only shows Sept, can't change anythin
    3) BMI calculator is a no go
    4) iCal events do not show up

    ESPN is no go as well. Only see the initial front but the icon is too big so I am unable to press on the "i" to change like to football.
    DO I do anything wrong?
