Stays "awake" and in Sync w/System Time So far, after trying a plethora of clock/weather widgets, I haven't found one (aside from the Android system clock widget) that properly stays in sync with the system title bar clock. All of the others eventually simply stop updating (yes, I've configured battery optimizations). Then, a post found via Google, put me on to this. It works exactly as it should. Not sure why no one else seems to be able to figure this out, but now I don't care. Well worth the price. (Android 6.0 Blu Vivo XL).
No complaints until the latest update. Whenever I go to the weather details now it asks for access to my notifications. Another reviewer was told it was a result of Google's merging of a permission they use to turn the ringer on/off. Since I never use this feature I should be able to refuse the request. However, the only way to avoid the constant request is to grant access. There is no way to refuse access even if I don't use the feature. I'm tired of lazy app developers demanding too much access.
The time doesn't display correctly all the time. I've got to open the app to sync it correctly every so often, but still everyday. Otherwise, this app is awesome. Flick you two extra stars if you can find a way to resolve it. Edit: First time updating in a while, time is still unsynced from actual time. I had to pay for this...
Location is broken all of a sudden after three years of using this. It will only show correct location. Experiencing this on both Pixel XL and Note 5. It displays am error saying that there is no network connection when clearly LTE has full bars. Maps, Yahoo weather, and every other app that uses location works just fine. Will go back to 5 stars when this is addressed.
Ive been using this for about 5 years as my standalone homescreen and its always worked great. What id love to see in this app is support for canadian weather services (i.e: the weather network). American weather really drops the ball for my region. Thanks HD widgets team keep up the good work.
Pretty nice app. I bought it years ago when it was pretty lacking. After playing with Beautiful Widgets, nothing really appealed to me so I returned to HD Widgets. To my surprise, the options were plentiful and I could customize my header widget almost any which way! Promptly uninstalled Accuweather and Beautiful Widgets afterwards. I couldn't find an option to save unactive widgets. Would be nice to have this feature! 4 stars.
