Any idea what would cause ALL of my homescreen widgets to stop updating i.e. I'm completely stock & un-rooted, and when this issue first came up I did a factory reset but the problem still comes up out of nowhere.
I had tried several different ones and after a period of time, the widget would stop updating or responding to the manual update input from touching the widget.I could delete the widget from the screen and then readd it back, however, this did not resolve the issue.

Thanks, I'll give it a try to see if I still have the issue. From then on I've stayed with whatever launcher came stock on the device.
