    I'm aware this is probably a dumb question but I need some help. I've had that stock clock/weather reporter on my S3 home screen since I bought the phone. I'm not sure if I did something or if it did it on its own but that clock is gone. I've tried turning my phone off and restarting it but it won't reappear. I don't want to to a factory reset and lose all my info in the phone & I don't want another clock, I'd like to stick with the stock one. Can someone give me a very simple step by step to get it back?

    I really don't know much about how to work the settings on this phone. What is that app called that widget called that I'm supposed to find. I see the "Clock" widget that I use to set my alarm but I'm not sure if that's the right one. When I drag it to where the other one used to be it just stays as a small picture of a clock instead of expanding like the other one to show the time & weather.

    Long press on the screen, you will see a menu pop up select apps and widgets, then select widgets, stock clock is in the last widgets panel, long press it to put it on your home screen.

    I think it is the Accuweather widget that is default out of the box. Try that.

    Make sure you press the Widgets tab (it's on Apps by default), and my widget was just named Weather [on the last page of widgets].

    I have a slightly different problem. The stock clock app on my S III is working great. I want to add it to my new Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. It does not have a clock app at all, just an alarm. I know there are lots of clock apps in Play, but I like the one that comes stock on the S III.

    Is that possible?

    Welcome to the forums.
    I don't believe so. I tried manually pulling an .apk file from my Tab to my S3 and it didn't work. After mulling it over a while, I came to the conclusion (at least I think it is right) that since APP X is signed to ROM X, they can't work on other devices. So, pulling your clock from your S3, which that app is signed to your S3 ROM, can't work on your Tab due to different signatures.

    Dumb, I know....I like the Calendar on my tab better than the stock on my S3. That was the exact app I tried extracting, and failed.
