    Here's the thing. When i get to a different city, the location doesn't show on the weather widget. So i type in the name, and it never changes back when i get home. The stock google now widget changes perfectly, but looks like crap.

    The widget looks good, but it's too small. I've got 20/20 and i have a hard time seeing it.:D

    There are 7 to choose from, the one in the second photo can be resized from 2x2 to as large as full screen.

    None of the weather apps mentioned so far are working for me, so now i'm testing apps, two at a time. Right now, i've got Go Weather EX, and YoWindow. Eventually, i'm bound to find one that changes location, as quick as the stock one does. If Google had more weather widget choices, i'd probably find something else to do.:D:p

    I've been using Beweather for years. The widget changes location, and you can change whether the location is identified by cell towers or by using your GPS/location. Free version has ads, pro version does not. Several different widgets to choose from. Here's the widget I use with transparent background.

    The winner is....YoWindow. It's the only weather widget that changes locations as fast as the Google weather widget, and it's a hell of a lot prettier. I'm using the free version, which is good enough for me. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions.:p
