Hi. This is my first post so hang in there. Lol. I'm looking for the apk of a couple apps that come with the stock Sprint Samsung Galaxy SIII. Music Player and the Weather/Clock widget that comes on the home screen when you first get it. I'm running CyanogenMod 11 M7. I personally don't like Apollo.. and don't want a weather app from the Play Store. Please help me get these. Thanks!

Here you go:

I am not sure what the difference is between the two weather widgets. But, the Accuweather widget is the widget you see on the homescreen out of the box. The music player is also the Samsung music player.

You'll need to copy to /system/app; then change permissions to -rw -r -r and reboot.

However, I cannot guarantee that these apps will work in a non-TW environment.

Good luck.

The vast majority of touchwiz apps will only work on touchwiz (stock based) roms due to the code additions that samsung makes to the AOSP base that these apps rely on

tl;dr you can't use those apps on AOSP

Yup


The music player heavily relies on the touchwiz framework...and they've made the widget so that it doesn't even show up on other launchers on touchwiz, much less work without the touchwiz framework


For a good weather widget, I'd suggest looking into beautiful widgets

For a good music player, check out Apollo

Just to build on CNexus' thoughts: For weather, I also enjoy an app called EZ Weather. For music, I primarily use Poweramp, but I also like the Google Play Music app.

(I wasn't sure if the apks would run on AOSP. It was worth a shot. Sorry.)
