Dear Windy dev team,
First of all, I would like to thank for this great app and service.
I've the latest Windy version installed on an Android 6.0.1, and I noticed that the forecasts showed in the widget, does not match any of the models forecasts. Please see the images attached, and look at the rain forecast.
So, what is the source model used in the widget?
Thank you very much!

Hello i m french
i use windy on a Samsung cell and Android version 5.0.2.
The widgets "windy détails" and "windy radar" don t work properly. Only W "day forecast" is OK.
An error message occur and says : "Windy s'est arrêté " and no display of the widget on the screen.
Can you fix it ?
The widget uses the ECMWF model.

Some problems with the widget on Android 9.
Often the widget hangs after a reboot and the only way to fix it is to remove and re-add it to the screen. I think this happens when the network is not yet available, but I can't say for sure. Seems to happen 80% of the time.
- wait until network is ready before getting weather data
- if for some reason the network is not ready, allow the widget to recover from that
Then there's a UI problem with the "failed to retrieve data screen". If there is older data, this screen should disappear and the old weather data be displayed instead. There can still be a small warning icon that current data is not available, but the way it's now, the whole widget becomes useless when the internet connection is bad. That can be solved better. This is a notable problem, because otherwise the UI is very, very good. So:
- cache old weather data
- try to get new data
- if successful, display new data
- if not successful, display old data and warning icon

3 cases here:
Widget is blank after reboot. It need app to be open to be refreshed.
Widget gets blank after some time. It's loading after manual refresh.
Widget gets blank by itself or due to reboot but it's impossible to refresh it. Only helps when it's removed and placed back on screen.

Widgets are still garbage. They fail to retrieve data and remain black. Must open the app to get information. Been like this for MONTHS. annoying.... please fix asap.

@Marienka Hi there! I'm experiencing a minor problem with the Windy app. The app's typical dark red round shaped icon is not being displayed. As a result, a grey box in the desktop, and another blue square shaped icon on the apps menu are shown by default. I tried reinstalling the app, but that didn't solve the problem. I have a Sony Xperia Z5 with Android 7.1.1. Thanks!

Any chance that the widget problems will be fixed some time soon? Those widget bugs and errors are being reported since 2016 by hundreds of users. It's so sad that you have such a good app but a completely buggy and useless widget. It fails to retrieve data, it fails to refresh, it stays black for hours and it crashes whenever I want to resize it (welcome to the year 2014+, phones can display 5x2 widgets by now, no more need for 4x2 widgets).

I'm facing exactly the same issues. I have also 5x6 grid, Android 9 and widgets crash reliably after switching display orientation. Bit of a shame, but still great app!
