  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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???

            • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                            After the 3.3 update, the app started draining my battery at an insane pace. It was almost dead by lunch time after a full charge. Once I uninstalled it, my battery life went back to what it was before.

                              Since the last iOS update to the app I am not able to get my current location. I have to select my city. It was working prior to this last update. I have made sure that the location settings are enabled and that the app has permission to use gps. Please fix!

                                  • Fix iPhone app

                                    The app for iPhone takes almost a full minute to load, and when it finally does, I have to manually enter and select my location. Every time. I used to love this app but it's clearly no longer functioning properly after the update.

                                        • Wrong location shown for PWS

                                          My PWS (ISASTKIL2) is located in a St Kilda, South Australia. Not in Calvin Grove, which as far as I can tell does not exist in South Australia
