Since a couple of days/weeks, I noticed that my widgets aren't updating anymore on my home screens of my Nexus 6 (Android 6.0.1).App Widgets are miniature application views that can be embedded in other applications (such as the Home screen) and receive periodic updates.These views are referred to as Widgets in the user interface, and you can publish one with an App Widget provider.Well, I knew there had to be some type of culprit to blame for this behavior.My hunch about Samsung’s Touchwiz interface proved to be true when I decided instead of restarting the phone to instead restart the Touchwiz application.After running a force stop on Touchwiz, my widget once again started responding to input AND updating. To get below: After killing Touch Wiz and then the system firing it back off, the widgets started to work again. After finding that the issue above keeps happening with all weather widgets I placed on home screen, I tried three of the big launcher replacements (Go Launcher, Nova Launcher, and Apex).I am not sure as of yet whether or not this is something an update from ATT/Samsung will fix, or if the app writers need to update code for the SGS4. NONE of the 3rd party launchers have this issue and widgets update perfectly.Recently on my phone Gmail stopped receiving new emails and giving automatic new email notifications.It worked well initially, so I’m sure that the recent changes I did on this phone caused the issue. Whenever I remember or expect emails on Gmail, I had to open it and refresh manually to get new emails.I’m enjoying this feature with my Samsung Galaxy Y Pro Duos.Few months ago Sysprobs published a personal review about Samsung galaxy y pro duos.
