  1. Hi, after the last update 0.84.22, weather not updating on wifi or mobile data (3G). This is the message : "Unable to update weather. Please make sure you have Internet access and try again". I have Internet access on both, wifi and mobile data. I use a Samsung Galaxy i9305 S3 LTE with 4.3 Android version. Please solve this problem. Good job ! Thank's !

    1. Thank you for reporting this.

      There is a problem with the weather server. We have released an update the temporarily solves the problem but we have already started implementing a different weather server. If you know someone else who has this problem please tell him about this.

  2. My wife and I have the same problem.

    Update 0.84.22
    Weather not updating.
    Message... " unable to update weather. Please make sure you have internet access and try again".

    I have Internet access on both WIFI and Mobile data.

    I use a Samsung Galaxy S5 G900V with Android version 4.4.4. My wife uses a Motorola Droid RAZR M with Android version 4.4.2.

    Please fix this problem as soon as you can.

    Great work!

    Thank you for your time!

  3. Hi. Looks like there is some issue with resizing widget. In this version there is truncated/not visible bottom part of the widget when using the same setup as in previous version. e.g. I don't see full "cloudy" title for weather but only upper part of it. There is workaround - vertically extend widget size, but I don't like that, it's one step back. I'm using Nova launcher prime, Android 4.4.2.

  4. I want to report that on the latest version, 0.84.23, on the Daily Forecast screen, there is an incorrect numerical month designation appearing for all entries. For example, instead of the day/date appearing as: "FRI 12/12", it appears as "FRI 0/12". This is the case for all days; they appear as follows: "SAT 0/13", "SUN 0/14", etc. Perhaps this is just me (Nexus 7 2013, running Android 4.4.3), but I'm assuming it is a general issue that needs to be fixed. Thanks for a GREAT application!

    1. Please go to settings, Weather & location settings, choose Date format and select the desired format. That should fix the problem.

  6. Is there a way to include julian date as wel? It'd be perfect! Thank you for such a simple yet beautiful app!

    1. We will add this to the list of things to do for a future update.

  8. Where can I change from hourly forecast to daily forecast? On my phone its daily but on my tablet its hourly and I cant seem to change anywhere

    1. There are two types of forecast widgets, one displays hourly weather by default, the other displays daily weather forecast. Both types have a hot spot at the lower right corner of the widget that when tapped, switches from hourly to daily forecast (or from daily to hourly forecast) and vice versa. Email us if you have any more problems.

    2. Thanks kindly Droid27! That was easy! :)

    3. Had the same problem and have been searching the Internet for an answer. Found it here. There really should be something within the settings to make this information known, because I have been trying to get this figured out for days and you really shouldn't have to go through all of this to figure out something that is SO SIMPLE to rectify.

      Glad to have found this information, because I was going nuts trying to figure out what happened.

      Thank you!

  9. Hi! I've read somewhere that it was possible to set two different widgets with different locations. If so, how do you do it? Can't find it anywhere... Thanks

    1. Hi there.
      We have posted a video on Youtube that shows how to do this. Here is the related video: Multiple location widgets
