What's New

This update rocks! We've added custom weather alerts and multi-location weather support. This is something you will love! Here are the highlights: Add multiple locations to track weather. Long hold on the weather widget and change locations. Enable receiving weather notifications per location. Quick access to weather locations right from the weather widget. Weather alerts automatically go away from the notifications queue once they expire from the National Weather Service. Alerts get updated every minute! We've also added support for the bigger screens of the iPhone 6, 6+ and iPad Pro. While we were under the hood, we squashed a few bugs and made some performance improvements. If you run into any problems, email us at [email protected] and we will be happy to look into any issue for you.
