Samsung galaxy s2 email widget not updating carbon dating shroud of teran
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.It worked well initially, so I’m sure that the recent changes I did on this phone caused the issue. Whenever I remember or expect emails on Gmail, I had to open it and refresh manually to get new emails.But that is weird when you have a smart phone with proper email client and internet connection always.As I already mentioned, I'm using a Motorola Nexus 6 with stock Android 6.0.1 on it.I have all the latest version of the Android version for my phone, and have installed all security patches.When I reboot my phone, it updates the widgets one time, and that's that. For example, I have the widget for Google Fit on my home screen, and it is still showing the status from a couple of days ago; when I rebooted my phone.I tried the Android N beta some time ago (I can't remember if the widgets updated then though). But I'm guessing the Android N beta has nothing to do with my problem? Are there some settings that I could have executed that froze my widgets?
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.
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.
Take for instance the #Samsung Galaxy #S4, this Android smartphone which was once a flagship model has access to the Google Play Store which has more than a million apps available.
Most of the apps available here are free while others come at a premium price.
I could delete the widget from the screen and then readd it back, however, this did not resolve the issue.
