Android Bugs

I have a little Samsung Galaxy S2 which is a perfectly adequate phone. I use the Google Apps on it to keep some semblance of order in my life. However, I run into some occasional bugs which require a bit of work to solve. So I’m putting in the fixes here so they’re easily available.

1. Weather widget displays an incorrect location. Documentation date 03.11.2014
This is fixed by going to Settings->Application Manager and performing a forced stop on the TouchWiz Home application.

2. Lockscreen displaying an incorrect location. Documentation date 03.11.2014
First I thought this was related to the first problem. However, this can be fixed by going to Applications->Security and changing the location detection to refresh automatically. It looks like adding a new city in the weather widget updates the location in the lockscreen, but removing it doesn’t force an update to the lockscreen.

More bugs will be documented here as they’re found.
