Samsung galaxy weather widget not updating

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.

I had tried several different ones and after a period of time, the widget would stop updating or responding to the manual update input from touching the widget.

Did you get the apps from the Google Play Store or did you sideload them to your phone?I love them both, but am disappointed that the weather app on my phone doesn't work. I've tried all of the solutions in this thread and nothing seems to work. One main advantage a smartphone has over a feature phone is that a person can easily customize his or her phone by downloading apps to the smartphone.Tap to retry.", but it works just fine on my phone.I've had both the phone and the watch for about a month.
