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.
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.
We however ask that when you do contact us try to be as detailed as possible so that an accurate assessment can be made and the correct solution can be given.
If your phone can’t do an app update the first thing you should check is if your phone is connected to the Internet.
The only time i get the weather to update is to uninstall and reinstall the application.
Also when i open up the app it doesn't refresh like it should.
For this latest installment of our troubleshooting series we will be concentrating on the Galaxy S4 apps not updating issue and other related problems.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy S4 or any other Android device for that matter then feel free to contact us using this form.
I could delete the widget from the screen and then readd it back, however, this did not resolve the issue.
