    There are plenty in Cydia and many that come with themes. The only issue I had was battery drain as they constantly update throughout the day.

    ifile then allows you to change the var localle.

    I've noticed a little extra drain due to it refreshing about every 15 mins. Most of the complete themes have nice weather widgets. Basalt and Noki hd are amongst those I've used. Their is a tweak to put a simple weather readout in your status bar too. But the animated widgets are the eye candy ones.

    I now prefer to use the z|ui theme now. My weather shows in the pull down notification screen.

    I never really noticed any extra drain, been awhile but can't remember the other one I used to use, but it was nice on the lockscreen. But I liked the Buuf theme and got this custom one from the modmyi forum that was animated.

    I tried some of the HTC Sense type widgets but didn't work as nice or smooth on iOS, but been awhile so not sure if anything changed. Haven't played with cydia in a long time. I love the setup I have on my GSII, hit the icon and it goes into more detail among other settings if you hit the numbers which is very cool. Anything like this on Cydia that works smooth and could edit functions/settings direct would be cool.

    Yeh the second is my GSII, you can click it for further forecast, but also the numbers control various settings and functions of the phone which is very cool. Was just posting that to see if anybody knew of something similar in Cydia. As I remember trying some of the widgets like this that I think were named under HTC sense etc but you didn't have that functionality and they didn't run that smooth on the home screen on iOS.

    The 1st two were from Buuf devs on modmyi where if I recall I downloaded it from.

    You must have used an old or crappy device, had this one from Nov and not one issue, had a lot of iPhones since they came out and have had a lot of issues. On our 2nd 4S as the 1st one had to be replaced. Most of my employee's have iPhones so I see issues and replacements there to.

    But in regards to battery life, my GSII was better stock then the 4S, and way better now being rooted and rom'd.

    But I think your getting off a tangent on your own thread, only reason I posted that other pic was too see if someone may know of a similar nice/simple widget on Cydia that worked as it does on this phone. As the ones I played with didn't, lockscreen was fine, but being on the home screens didn't seem to play well with iOS.

    i never had a crappy android device always top of the line and i just had it with them! i have had the droid x, thunder bolt, galaxy nexus s and many more and they are all crap! the device would constantly delete my numbers, delete picture and it was just not a enjoyable experience
