Xwidget does not work in the background [off screen, unused phone]. Xwidget launches only when the screen is turned on.
I think that you are a bit confused about how an Android app should work Slavoo.
I remind you that a good app have to work like this to save battery..! Apps that work in the background even with screen turned off are BAD. Even the last versions of Android put the apps to sleep to earn battery life. XWidget consumes only 1% of the battery life so it's great!
After the last update 1.1.1 weather and clocks work perfectly! So I don't understand your point..
Now if you notice a little delay sometimes of a half second to load the widget when you turn your screen on after hours of inactivity I don't think that it's so important.
(Maybe Tony can optimize further the loading code)
But remember that the same app works a bit better in some phones than others. There are so many phones out there with different capabilities and ram management and Android versions that it's impossible to have the same result for all! It's normal Slavoo..........
