Photos and video widget bug

Anyone else noticed a bug with regards to the photo and video widget. If you remove it from the home screen it tends to come back but invisibly. If you try to add a widget to the screen it's "on" then an error comes up saying no more space on screen. If you try to put the photos and video widget on a screen it says it is already installed. Rather odd. :smileymad:

Weird indeed. I don't use it either which makes it more frustrating! Getting rid of it involves a bit of faffing about and restoring the Home screen to default by deleting the SE Home data, grrrr... Apart from that I'm enjoying the Arc, just don't mention the 360 software, d'oh - I just did :smileysad:

Well, I've given SE a heads up, who say they've never come across the issue, but will pass it on to the appriopiate team

Re: Photos and video widget bug

Thanks MTL!

As I don't use it I could live with it being buggy, it's just the bug means it reappears if there space left on a home screen to accommodate it (I now have no space left so it, hopefully, won't be making an appearance anytime soon!). This is where I found a work around: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1032757

Maybe the 2.3.4 update will resolve it.

Re: Photos and video widget bug

Thanks for the tip Bild, if it happens again (hopefully not) I'll give your suggestion a go first before restoring the Home screen to its default (as that means putting all the widgets back how I want them).
