  1. Changing locations

    Any chance to get an update that allows swiping between locations? It would be a great enhancement.

    Also, the auto locate doesn't always work. Most of the time it just refreshes the data from the last location the app was opened to.

    • Current location

      On iOS the button that looks like it should take you to your current location has never worked. It always takes me to the location set for devices without gps. Clearly my iphone 5 has gps as it works in every other app except this one. If that button (3rd from the right on the op bar) isn't supposed to take you to your current location, what does it do???

      • Back to the basics

        Look to your competition. Not sure what you're aspiring to accomplish, but the current iPhone app is...far from being a home run. Sure, it's clean. But, it's sterile. You have so much incredible / valuable data and appear to just dump it on a 'sterile' format that makes it unpleasant to review. I compare your app to Canada's The Weather Network app. Rich with data and organized in a clean yet optically / UI friendly manner.

        Love what you do. But, in my opinion, something / someone has gone awry in trying to devise a "clean" app.

        • Always display the home PWS on the WunderMap App

          Allow home PWS to be set in the WunderMap App and always display home PWS on the map.

          • Android 2x2 Widget isn't correct. When I touch it to get the correct information & return the Widget is still wrong.

            Example. Widget says 54°. I touch it & go to the main WU App, which says 65°. I return to the main phone screen & the app hasn't changed. Widget says it was last updated 10 minutes ago. This happens often.

            I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.3.

            Please contact me if you need more information.

            • Elevation display WunderMap 3 iPad

              Just a note about the update WunderMap 3 iPad app. The elevation in metres or feet in my case (maufox Station id IPLAINEW2) in Mauritius Quatre Bornes now indicates 99m or 324ft. it should display 354m or 1161ft. On wunderground.com, the elevation is displayed correctly.
              For the daily precipitation it show dash, but this has been like this before.When I check the XML for my station, it reports <precip_today_string>-999.00 in (-2537.5 cm)</precip_today_string>.
              however on my site maufox.net the values from the same source (VWS) are correct. Are you aware of any bugs or parameters to change in Virtual weather station…

              • widget problem

                there's a problem with weather widgets in the new version of the android app. when refresh interval is set to "update as needed" and there is no internet connection, the widget says "unable to update the weather" instead of showing most recent weather conditions and forecast

                  • iOS app shows wrong city

                    iOS app always states the wrong town. Please have it read Germantown rather that Menomonee Falls. I'm looking at the Tree Tops weather station, clearly based in Germantown.

                    • Pollen Count / Allergy Information

                      With the pollen allergy season upon us it would be nice to have this information available via the ios app especially since it's already available via the website.

                        • Indicate freezing in temperature forecast chart

                          The "forecast charts" home screen card shows a line graph of recent past and forecast future temperature. Currently, the line is blue for past temperatures and red for future temperatures.

                          Probably the most important reference temperature is freezing (0°C or 32°F). Especially during the fall, winter, and spring, it is useful to know what the temperature will be relative to freezing. The current design of the graph makes this difficult. You can see the temperature go up and down, but close study is required to determine whether the temperature crosses 32°F.

                          It would be helpful to visually indicate above and…

                            • Graph PWS wind speed, gust, and direction in the WunderMap App.

                              Add a tab that graphs wind observations to the PWS detail in the WunderMap app.

                              Or perhaps the current graph tab could be enhanced to allow the user choose the desired observations, including: temp, heat index, dew pt, precip, humidity, wind, gust, direction, etc.

                              • Alert triggers multiple time or when no data

                                I have had two problems with the alerts on the IOS app.
                                Either I get hammered with duplicate alerts. For example, yesterday I received 4 alerts in a 4 minute period each telling me that there was a severe thunderstorm warning, all pointing to the same NWS statement. Why so many duplicates.

                                Or I get an alert and when I go to open up the alert, it is "no longer valid". Even tho the alert is for a new notice, and I immediate open it. Many times, the alert is not valid.

                                This type of excessive notification is starting to…

                                • Need to be able to disable temp in notification area on android, and limit update interval.

                                  I'd really like to be able to disable the temperature at the top of the screen (in the notification tiles) on Android 4.4. Also, I don't see a way to change the update interval. I suspect the app is hammering away at updates (killing the battery) more often than I want it to so it can display a temperature in the title bar that I'd rather not see. Good otherwise, thanks. Also, you ask for my email address below, but don't clearly indicate if that will be visible to the public or not on your page here.... despite the link…

                                  • Mobile app (Android) forecast is NOT the same as computer website. Fix this please!

                                    It would be nice to have the mobile app offer the same info (temps, forecast, etc.) as the website version. I find the mobile app on my Android Samsung phone to be WAY off on most counts. The website version is very accurate. Fixing this discrepancy would be great.

                                    • Bring back the "set your location" feature

                                      First, I would like to say I love the update to the UI for the Android App. It shows a bunch of data in an easy to read fashion. The only problem is it seems I cannot choose which location I want to display in the Notification area anymore. I live in an area that gets majorly different weather than the "town" location. My next door neighbor has a PWS, so I can get the conditions right at my house with WUG. I love it!! However, I work 600 miles from my home for 2 weeks at a time. I…

                                      • You have the "is the weather correct where you are" on the app. But if you click on the X then the choices you have are not enough.

                                        Where you can select if the weather is correct where you are, you get a tick or a cross, if you click on the cross, the options you have are not enough. Yesterday it asked me if i had cloud, but i had sunshine, there was only 4 options to choose from ie foggy, snow, rain etc, but no sunny option. Apart from that, i love the App

                                        • Incorrect data shown in station details for Wundermap app

                                          When I select the detail view of certain weather stations, I am getting incorrect data. As an example, the map (and other sources) will show that it is 4 C. However, if I select the station, the correct information is displayed for a brief moment, then it changes to incorrect data. The incorrect data is always the same: -17 C. This happens reliably for the weather station IQUBECRI4. The information is correct on the web, but consistently incorrect for both the iPad and iPhone apps.
