    I have beautiful widgets v 2.9 installed. I selected Beautiful Home from the widget screen. I can see the clock, date, city location, high/low and current temp. However, I don't see any weather related pictures/animations (clouds, rain, etc.). Is there anything special I have to do to get these or should they automatically be available? I've tried rebooting the phone which didn't help.

    You mean there is no cloud/sun/moon or anything on the widget? Did you choose "Beautiful Home" when selecting the widget?

    My Beautiful Widgets is working as it always had. I just looked at the version in my settings> applications and it said version 69. Have you tried to uninstall/install?

    Edit: idk why it says version 69 in my manage applications setting. The Market shows v2.9

    Yeah, I chose beautiful home from the widgets screen. Uninstalling/re-installing doesn't help. Here's a screenshot.

    I'm assuming you tried to"trash" the widget and reapply it. I really don't know what could be doing this. Are too rooted? Running an aftermarket ROM?

    Yeah, it's rooted (motorola milestone). Tried trashing widget and re-creating it already.

    Strange thing is I've also tried weather widget (weather and flip clock) and it doesn't show the weather images either.

    Sry I can't be of any help. You may try the Milestone section to see if anyone else is coming across this problem. I asked if you are rooted because I thought a new ROM or a nandroid restore might fix the issue, but I don't know anything about how the Milestone works.

    Hey MAKAVELI, I just noticed there was an update to Beautiful Widgets today. Just wondering if you still had your missing animation problem?

    Beautiful Widgets uses Google Weather information to display the animations. So, probably your city is not available on Google Weather.

    If you would like to test, please change your city for a bigger city nearby, or choose New York or Miami. Probably you are going to see the animations...

    I have this problem also. I get no animations. It would be nice if we could select the weather information provider on Beautiful Widgets.

    Regards from Brazil,

    I have BW and it is working just fine. I installed the update and live in a very small town in central PA.

    Perhaps a vist to the developers site and email may help.

    I had the same problem with the weather by changing my location to a larger city and disabling geo location the weather animation started working.

    Hope this helps :)

    Hmmm....might be a stupid question, but your statement that both are not working put up a red flag.

    Do you have a sd card installed, or can you access it? Both WW and BW animations won't work if there is a issue with you're card.

    Worked for me also

    I changed weather source to accuweather and set my locations and it started working properly.

    At first I just tried to set location and received an error about connecting to google weather service.

    There is a problem out today where if you are using Google Weather, the icons don't show. There is an update in the market to both BW and Beautiful Live Weather that eliminates it.

    Yeah... looks like Google changed the domain of their icon set, which screwed up what BW was trying to do, even with other icon sets. The update is a quick little patch that fixes it.
