    I don't use weather widgets purely because of how far off the weather is. It's always about 2 to 3 degrees off for me. It's a shame because some of the weather widgets look really good.

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    Is there any widgets out there that use the built in weather app for the source of the information?

    Most of the good ones use Accu-weather AFAIK...It's pretty good here in the UK, I have weather HD, on my iPhone and ipad, and it's been great at predicting the lousy summer we are having, with accurate temperatures too.

    As a bonus you also get the nice HD images of where you are or your chosen search location, showing the area In retina with all the clouds and rain!

    I've tried others, and like you say they are not all as accurate. I'm not sure which ones take info. from the built in app though...Probably wouldn't be worth developing one that worked that way.
