    Just downloaded the Palmary weather app and really like it. Nice graphics and appears to be very accurate.

    Here's the question...

    On the bottom of the 'Now' tab, there's a list of what appears to be nearby cities with their current conditions. Whenever you select one of those, the conditions appear on the main screen but my current location name doesn't change. How do I know what the most accurate conditions are for my actual area.

    I e-mailed the developer but haven't heard from them. Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks all.

    Not sure if this answers your precise question but ... I just manually added my location, plus some other locations (via zip code) in which I am interested. Works like a charm.

    Try this and tell me what happens...

    Go to your Now tab and choose a different location at the bottom of the screen. The conditions should change but does your primary location name stay the same?

    Thanks for the confirmation. It appears that this is a bug that needs fixed. I guess I'll wait to hear from the developer.

    I don't see this as a bug, but deliberate, the dev would be in a better position to say though. When you scroll through the locations, the name of the station remains at the bottom above the icon, and your current location remains at the top. He could probably make a clearer distinction, but I like how it displays both. Especially because I have multiple locations in there, and it starts up at whatever screen you last had up, and I know what location I have set.

    Noticed this too and emailed the dev on Tuesday, still no response. I also noted that the 15 Day tab has a quirk in the listing of days. For instance there is a today forecast, tomorrow and then Friday. Well, today is Thursday so tomorrow should be Friday which means Friday is listed twice. Once as tomorrow and then again as Friday.

    Anyone else notice the quirk?

    You're right...don't know if Friday's weather is listed twice or if the entire string is off by one day. Good catch. Hopefully developer will respond quickly to fix these bugs.

    Just downloaded this app and can't seem to get it to work. Whenever I search for a location to add I get nothing but "No locations found," no matter what city I enter. Anyone else have this problem and a solution?

    In the Market the Dev commented that they underestimated its popularity and the app exceeded the server, but thy were working on a solution.

    DEAR USERS OF PALMARY WEATHER! We did not expect that our program will be so popular. Our web server has been suspended by hoster because of overload. That is why you were not able to make weather updates. We are working extremely hard on it and will try to make sure that this problem will not recur. Please be patient. Thanks in advance. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Saw that there is an update available today. I installed it and noticed that it now refreshes much faster... Great job, Palmary!

    Thank you for the great APP, I just downloaded the newest update this morning, but still have the issue of it forecasting, Today, then Tomorrow, then Monday on the 15 day. today is Sunday. Please tell me I get an extra Sunday this week:D, and not 2 Mondays!!! :eek:
    Other than this one issue. this is a great addition to my Droid, and I use it every day.

    I have this same problem. (Today is Sunday, March 7.) The screen for my city shows: Today, Tomorrow, Monday Mar 8, Tuesday Mar 9, and so on. As you can see, tomorrow and Monday are the same day. Interestingly enough, the daytime temperatures show as the same but the night time temperatures are different. Thanks for taking a look at this!

    Thanks for the great weather app. Is there a way you can give us the ability to zoom in on the weather graphics? Sometimes it is a little tough to read.

    Thanks

    Our program is just a wrapper around the data which are provided by CustomWeather Inc. Unfortunately current quality of maps is the best that CustomWeather provides to us. I have asked their technical support about improving the quality of maps and waiting for respond.
