Motorola Droid :: Way To Clear Cache For Weather Widget?
Apr 2, 2010
Using the widget to read stories is draining the memory down on me, has anyone found a way to clear the cache for it? clearing the browser cache doesn't do it, and I have 5mb that's gone from reading the stories.
Browser seems to chew up memory pretty well, which is usually okay, but it would be good to be able to clear it. Well if you long press on the back button you get an option to exit and clear cache. Neat. Any other apps do this?
I was rooted and not thinking about using the cache clear app I did it using the recovery menu in the phone. Now I can't see to be able to rename .apk files on the phone. It says the file system is read-only. I have tried remounting the filesystem several times and i can't.
On my news and weather app the weather does not show up therefore does not show up in the multimedia dock at night. I have tried zip code and geolocation. It keeps saying when i refresh weather info unavailable. IS anyone else having this problem? This just started happening yesterday morning prior to that i had no problems with it. The news portion is working fine.
Anyone else notice that if the city that you are in is longer than a certain amount of characters it will wrap the letters to the next row and will then cut the temperature in half to where you can barely read it? It's pretty silly looking.
The weather toggle widget def looks the best but when you put it up against the stock news and weatehr widget(which is powered by weather channel) it seems pretty inaccurate, any thoughts or suggestions
So since the 2.1 OTA my weather widget will display the city, but no weather icon. if i sync it manually, it will show up. with 1.5 it would update every 3 hours, regardless if i had Background data on or off (i normally keep it off).
so now with 2.1 it wont sync unless i have BG data on, or do it manually. any way around this?
just noticed today that when going back to my homescreen, the weather/clock takes a split second to re-appear. i have beautiful widgets weather, and this is the first time it has happened. batt pulled, rebooted, reloaded skins, and no luck.
I recently flashed the Cyanogenmod 6.0.0-RC3 ROM onto my Moto Droid, and also installed a Simple Black Bar theme from their forum. Now, my Weahter and Toggle Widget app doesn't show up on the list of widgets when I long press my screen. I reinstalled it, and it worked, but then any time after that when I reboot my phone or unplug it from my computer, it will fail to load, and again won't show up on the widget list. Is this a bug in RC3? How can I go about fixing this?
Just a quick question for those of you who know the marketplace pretty well. I really want to upgrade to LP for my phone, but there are two moto widgets that I really like but can't seem to find similar replacements. One of them is the calendar widget and the other is the weather widget. What I'm looking for is an app that displays the current date and the next upcoming event. I've found a few, but they take up too much space for my tastes. I'm trying to keep these two on the home screen for easy viewing. Secondly I'd love a weather widget which could display the weather information in a small amount of space. Pictures are not necessary, I could live with text descriptions.
I've been using Weatherbug Elite since soon after getting the Droid X. I'm running Launcher Pro Plus. I have always been able to resize the map widget of weatherbug to 3x3. Now (since last update I think) the widget sizes to about 2.5x2.5 from the standard 2x2 size. The other .5x.5 is grey screen. Has anyone else been having this problem or know if it can be fixed? I really like weatherbug but would like to fix this.
I've installed weather widget donate and when I the clock is displayed on my moto droid screen, it's not aligned correctly. It's bunched to close together and I'm not sure what to do. It seems that all the clocks I've downloaded from within weather widget, it's all the bunched. Any ideas of what I can do? This is annoying as I was really happy to have this widget installed.
Last night I Rooted and installed Bugless Beast v1. Since installing the rom my Weather Widget (Donate) has failed to update a location. The display says N/A and 32 degrees. I searched and browsed the forums. I couldn't find much info on what might be causing this. I re-installed Google maps and cleared the cache, still nothing. I will say when I use maps I get a "Location is temporarily unavailable" message. I decded to do a full wipe, re-root and rom install, but I still get this issue.
So i think the Weather Widget is already on one of the screens when you get the phone.... i deleted it and then added it to a different screen....
My problem is this: When i go to add a city by name or zip code and hit search, i see the pop up window for searching for a split second and then it disappears and it doesnt come up with any cities for me to select....
so basicly its not letting me add any cities... anyone else having this problem?
I have been happily using Weather & Toggle widget since getting my Droid a few months ago. All of a sudden though it will not refresh the weather or forecast. This is true even if I do a forced refresh. I have also tried removing the clock/weather widget from my screen and re-adding it. No luck. It remains stuck on yesterday's high of 80 degrees and sunny. Considering its cloudy about about 65 today this is clearly wrong. It was showing 80/sunny at 5am this morning when it was still dark!
Also, in the 4 day forecast section you get by tapping the weather portion of the widget, it starts with Tuesday. It should start with today, Wednesday. This is by far my favorite app/widget so far but its completely useless if it remains stuck like this.
Is not available on the phone (Droid X). Yeah sure there are motoblurry widgets, but I kind of liked the Google one - slim and handy. I downloaded a copy of GenieWidget.apk but it wouldn't install - not sure if I picked a bad copy or what.
This morning, at random, i woke my phone up and unlocked the screen after being in my packet and the news and weather widget's grey background is gone and the news and weather is simply in white text over the top of my background. i actually like it, but just wanted to know if this was right?
