    Weather App Will Not Update

    Weather applet just all of the sudden quit updating weather data. Just blank spaces where conditions should be. All locations I try end up with same result. Using Centrafuse 3.5 with weather app set to auto-dial in settings with an excellent wireless signal strength. Any ideas?

    So in short.. if it was using the Weather Channel to pull it's data from then it aint going to work again. The plugin will need updating to pull the details from another site.

    Hi Sall,

    There may well be, but sorry can't be any more help as I don't do Centrafuse.. I used Google Weather in FreeICE.

    Check this app out. Works good for me. It's available in the CF market as well.

    It's a great app. Willem wrote it to take advantage of GPS, so if you have internet you'll always have current weather during your travels.

    Yes but does it show Doppler radar. I am desperately in search of a Doppler radar app as I don't have time to write my own. The forecast is fine but I need real time Doppler.

    World Weather Online, the API that Willem is using (you must register for an API key - it's free) is an RSS feed - no doppler.

    Did somebody say Doppler Radar? Why yes, we can do that. I've got a couple of items on my plate right now, but I'll pass the code to Willem so he can add current doppler data (US only...sorry folks) to his app if he so desires. If not (he may want to keep it truely global), then I'll put it out as a little add-on app.

    Week or two...maybe less.
