    1. We have released another update with a few bug fixes and support of a new weather provider. The old weather server is also working now so check again - use the server that is better for you. We are working hard to bring the application back to being stable again. Thank you for understanding.

  12. It's getting there! The widget shows correct time and temp, but sunrise and sunset shows sunrise at about 2 AM and sunset around 2 PM here in Burbank, CA. (should be about 7AM and PM today.) When things were kerflooey I was looking at temporary alternatives, but this is really what I like best. It's clean, unobtrusive, and, of course, transparent.

    1. Thanks Ira. We are working hard on fixing bugs and adding at least one more weather provider. The application will soon become as good (and even better) as it was before the server problems. Just make sure to check for updates (if you do not have automatic updates for the application enabled) and install new versions.

  13. Greetings Athos!

    WeatherBug seems to be accurate with an extensive range of weather data, and they offer enterprise API services (including free trials)...might be worth looking in to.

  19. Another detail, my location is in Argentina (GMT-3:00), but the app shows my location at GMT+00:00 which is impossible...I am in Argentina. It seems you have a lot of work to do with this app

    1. There is a hot spot at the lower right corner of the widget that toggles from hourly to daily forecast and vice versa. Tap it to switch back to weekly forecast.

    1. Hi Arun. You can add two locations and the locations you need (from the weather forecast page). Then simply tap the location on each widget to switch to the desired location. Email us if you have any more questions.
