I think this is a pretty nice app.been using it for a while.
Only 4 issues i have with it

1 ..Behind the temp display on the widget,the green grass/flower image i feel is unnecessary unless it can change on different weather times.
I.E if it is snowing then maybe snow in background,if it windy then maybe leaves etc.no matter what the weather i get green grass/flowers which looks pretty crass.

2...The alert(notification) for drastic weather change,what is classed as drastic weather change?
.i have had the app for about 6 weeks and only just this past week or so has it started too alert me of weather change.But nothing i would class as drastic,if it is cloudy today and going too rain tmw then it will make a notification,but it could rain all night and be normal cloudy day following.
If it was going too be very high winds then yeah an alert in needed,torrential rain etc.but then at what point do you/app decide the following days weather will be drastic.

3....when adding location i get problems locating server when i choose too input location using the browse option..
Location-browse location-United kingdom-Scotland-"city" will bring up server error.Could be connection error my side but just noting it.


4...On the weather display the time i have set for update is 1 hour,but it is now 4.11pm and the display says conditions as of 2.50pm.
I solved this myself if you come out the app and back in it updates but does not always do it.Since when you use settings it says updating but does not fix that problem.But as i said coming out the app and back in should fix it most times.
I just noticed the same thing on your Paris image,the time 10:32am but the conditions 3:00am.this should auto update along with the hourly update i reckon.


I know it seem like long winded issues but just trying too explain the best i can,i really like the app and find it better then bw which i used too have.

P.s
Im rambling now,im not good at explaining things in writing but trying my best.still best weather app i tried so far.
I understand it beta so will be some issues,so not slating the app.
Samsung Galaxy s 2.2.1.

Might be having the same issue. Don't have a wifi network to test with ATM though. I just get a message that there's a network error and that I.should check my network settings.

GOWeather 5-day forecast updating issue
Hi,

I downloaded GOWeather last night and I really like it, but there seems to be a problem with the five day forecast at the bottom of my screen.

The forecast in the main screen updates when I manually refresh (doesn't seem to happen otherwise - I noticed someone else has mentioned that) but nothing I can do makes the five-day forecast update. It still says "Tonight Tomorrow Thurs Fri Sat". It's Wednesday now, so I want it to change!

When I set it to forecast date the date changes (4/20, 4/21, 4/22, etc) although the weather predicted doesn't, but if I switch it back to day, it goes back to "Tonight Tomorrow Thurs Fri Sat".

Hope this can be fixed

EDIT: It does update when I'm on wi-fi. And the widget running on my lock screen updates continously. It just seems to be the 5 day forecast on "Day" not date. I'll double check by leving it off wifi overnight again.

I can not get the "themes" to download, and also, the "Default Videos Including Night" stops at 85% on the download.

What does the "wallpaper" theme do in the settings? I don't see any wallpapers added to my gallery when I download them (on a droid 2).

Also, does this include functionality to be added to your lockscreen or do you need widget locker? If so, how?

I'd really like to use this app but it won't update at all for me unless I'm on wifi which is very rarely. I also would love to see a 1x1 widget eventually.
