    Accuweather (built-in widget) glitches since update to Android 4.1.2

    Hello all !

    Recent update to Android 4.1.2 on my Samsung Galaxy S2 (LTE) caused a glitch in the built-in widget/app Accuweather.
    I was trying to see if I could find a decent app to replace it, lots of good weather app's out there indeed, BUT I read that one MUST delete/uninstall any such existing widget/app (weather) before installing a new one.
    The one I have in mind, and that mentions to remove any existing weather app is "The Weather Network - Météomédia" , widely used here in Canada.

    Well, it seems that this Accuweather widget came with the phone when I bought it, and all was perfectly fine and dandy until the Android update.

    Now, Accuweather will:

    1. Always show the same "main" screen which is now a grassy landscape obviously representing a summer day although I live in Québec and it is snowing (even today) .... so the image doesn't quite cut it, does it?
    The temperature is fine .... showing the right numbers.

    2. Take forever to "reload" (when one taps on the little double-arrows within a circle on the Accuweather image - bottom right); what used to take a few seconds now takes forever, if it ever updates.

    3. (Will) not find the "current location" (city - province) after having cleared the cache.

    Can I still install a different weather app/widget even if this Accuweather is ever present within the system?
    If I can, what should I do/not do before installing?


    Thanks !!

    Trying wiping all the data and cache, it may help to fix AccuWeather.

    And yes, you can safely install any other weather app. If that weather app is asking to delete all existing ones, it's probably 'just in case'. AccuWeather is integrated with your stock launcher, so you can't delete it or freeze it. Simply remove it from the homescreen.
