Well, I knew there had to be some type of culprit to blame for this behavior.My hunch about Samsung’s Touchwiz interface proved to be true when I decided instead of restarting the phone to instead restart the Touchwiz application.Performing this also deletes the widget so by reinstalling a fresh version of the app, we just might correct the widget issue.We recommend deleting the problematic app (and widget) and THEN restart the i Device.It’s always a good idea to do a reset if you are starting out with a new i OS update.
After reinstalling and launching the app, check if the widget functions normally.
Another oddball tip is to go to your regional settings and change your language and then change it back (I switch from U. Once you have explored the notification settings of the widgets, Press the home button and wake/sleep button for 10 seconds or so and let your i Device restart.
Restarting the device often fixes your widget content problem in i OS 10 .
After running a force stop on Touchwiz, my widget once again started responding to input AND updating. To get below: After killing Touch Wiz and then the system firing it back off, the widgets started to work again. After finding that the issue above keeps happening with all weather widgets I placed on home screen, I tried three of the big launcher replacements (Go Launcher, Nova Launcher, and Apex).
I am not sure as of yet whether or not this is something an update from ATT/Samsung will fix, or if the app writers need to update code for the SGS4. NONE of the 3rd party launchers have this issue and widgets update perfectly.
After recently purchasing Samsung’s new flagship smartphone the Galaxy S4, I have had a weird issue with some of my beloved weather widgets not updating.
