1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Pretty much all my settings are set the same as the always are (just data sync on, battery saver mode, screen brightness down, etc) and my phone was at 50% after being unplugged for 4 hours. I literally did nothing on my phone the entire time. I unplugged it and went back to sleep. Could this be the culprit? I set it to refresh every 2 hours so I didn't think it would have such a substantial impact. I love the widget, but it's not worth the price of my battery life.

    Make sure the Fancy Weather is n't accessing your GPS everytime it updates. That may be having your GPS on all the time (or close to it). See if there's a way to use WiFi/cell towers to update it instead.

    I have GPS turned off and the checkbox unchecked. It was checked to "automatically determine location". Not sure how it does that w/o GPS, but I unchecked it and manually entered my zip code. Hopefully that will help. My battery used to last a solid 14 hours with a lot of pandora/slacker/mp3 use.
