I am expecting the location determined once by first update then should be the same location until the new location detected even location services not enabled. I am using location services off mostly and activating If i got error on my forecast widget. But this should use my last location when location services disabled and change as soon as detect the new location.

Version 4.2.0 - Backup and Notifications
NEW features:
 - Status bar Weather notifications (Pro)
 - Backup and restore widget settings

Fixes:
 - Use Google's Geo lookup instead of OpenWeatherMaps's, if available 
 - Help text scrolling
 - Minor bugfix and code cleanup
 - Updated translations

Version 4.1.1
Fixes:
 - Updated 7" and 10" tablet layouts for Month View calendar widget
 - Update the current day/month in the Month view calendar on date change
 - Calendar resizing in Standard style widget
 - Better multi-day all day event handling
 - Facebook widget refresh hang
 - Updated translations

Version 4.1.0 - Facebooking...
NEW features:
 - Facebook news provider (Pro)
 - Month view Calendar style and Tap action toggle (Pro)
 - Sharing in News feed article view
 - Widget background selection now a standard feature!

Fixes:
 - Fix http://yr.no location lookup in e.g. Japan.
 - Fix weather cache handling on connection failures
 - Fix icon and text overlay color handling
 - Performance improvements
 - Updated translations

Version 4.0.5 to 4.0.7
Fixes:
 - New http://yr.no provider (The old geoname service was too unreliable)
 - Allow Clock+ upscaling on Lock screen (with warning message)
 - Fix Calendar hang on refresh and icon disappearing bugs
 - Bug fixes and Performance optimizations 
 - Fix Calendar refresh bugs
 - Updated translations (AF, DE, IT, IW, RO and SK) 

Important note to existing http://yr.no users:
The re-written version of the http://yr.no weather provider replaces the old Geonames location service with the Google Maps location service. As a result of the change in location provider, existing http://yr.no users using a Custom location will need to re-select the Custom location(or switch to using network location).

Version 4.0.1 to 4.0.4
Fixes:
- General bugfixes
- Flex (Analog) and Clock+ (Forecast) Clock Tap action 
- RSS Finder clicks not working
- "Loading weather" indicator not going away
- Properly encode Feedly content that may contain spaces
- Allow disabling of Calendar event taps (New feature)
- Slightly smaller weather panel layout to better fit some screens
- Slightly enhanced small widget layout to not wrap with battery %
- Fix Left/Right weather panel condition text ellipsis
- Updated translations (AF, IT, DE and ES)

Version 4.0.0 – Dreaming of News in Norway...
NEW features, General:
- News widget 
- Weather widget 
- Daydream screensaver (Pro)
- Clock+ (Forecast) widget (Pro)
- We removed the 'vclouds' and 'modern' icon sets to reduce the app size by over 5MB. Now available via the Play store (Free)

NEW features, Clock:
- Show Battery percentage
- Analog clock styles: Standard and Classic (Pro)

NEW features, Weather:
- Weather layout styles: Standard and Classic
- http://yr.no weather provider

Version 3.5.0 - "Extra Extra, read all about it ..."

 - Calendar colors (Pro)
 - "Do nothing" Clock Tap action (Pro)

Fixes:
 - A few layout and padding tweaks incl. a slightly larger Calendar font

Credits:
Our thanks go to +Jorge Ruesga  for contributing the News Reader feature.

 - Custom color selection for all fonts
 - EXPERIMENTAL! OpenWeatherMap Weather provider

Fixes:
 - Fixes the Clock+ widget sizing on HDPI devices
 - Translation updates

Release Notes:
OpenWeatherMap seems to have a bug in their geolocation API - they return different locations for the same coordinates.  We have logged the bug with them but there is no committed resolution from them.  As a workaround, if you cannot live with it, use a custom location.

Version 3.4.0 - Icons, icons, icons, and  a widget ...
Changes:
 - UPDATED! Forecast widget now resizeable
 - NEW! Clock+ widget
 - NEW! Weather Icon Set selection with 2 additional Icon sets:
    - vClouds
    - Modern (Pro)
    - Additional sets are available in the Play Store (Flat, Vista and Realism) and 3rd party developers can now add their own sets
 - Almost all images refreshed
 - Hex input field for color picker for more precise control
 - New translations (Turkish, Finnish, Arabic etc.)
 - Bug fixes
 - REMOVED! - Analog clock

_Older versions were functionally equivalent to CyanogenMod's cLock._

Hi, David. Just installed Chronus and will buy the Pro - if nothing else, at least to support a fellow Torontonian :-). I have 2 questions (already!) : 1. Any chance of a widget with the date in large font and above the time? I would like the date slightly larger than the time.
2. Weather source for Canada? (Canada Environment). Thanks.
