Used to be a very helpful widget - but simply does not work anymore (no data for LOWW and others)...

Ok, the 02.02.10 version fixed things for a while, however, again, the widget no longer updates its into.

Once again Aviation Weather with the same setup on my iPhone is working fine.

Does anyone have any idea whats going on here? This used to work flawlessly.

Well, i have no idea whats wrong with this Widget, but after a clean install of Snow Leopard (had an upgrade before), and upon installing the widget, it just has NO data.

It seems to try to connect online, i can see the connection going out through little snitch (where YES it is all allowed) but no data returns, but neither any errors or anything else, for ANY airport that i put in (using NWS). My connection is fine, firewall fine, little snitch, fine, in fact, everything works, except this widget.

Have not tried using mymetars because i dont..umm want to have to use my metars and sign up when i just want some simple info to be on hand. Plus i always used NWS with no probs (i can even open safari go to site and look at data there, so why cant the widget download it?)

Anyone have anything similar? Any Ideas?

Strangely enough aviation weather works great now with NWS on my iPhone....
....this is the firt time i have ever had a problem with this widget, but its properly frustrating when i have NO info to work with to try and correct it (LOGS etc)

Nice widget, but it has one really annoying feature.

It uses the system clipboard to move data around. So if you copy something to the CB and then bring up the dashboard to past it into a widget (a sticky note, for example) most of the time what you had in the clipboard is lost and you end up pasting an unparsed METAR into the sticky.

I had to stop running it for that reason alone.

Apps that blow away the clipboard contents without direct user action (or at least asking) are very, very uncool. :-(

Very nice! The only thing I want changed is the look. It's pretty ugly, judging by the extremely positive response to your widget you shouldn't have much trouble finding someone to give you a hand with this!

Well done. As a pilot it's really neat to see the multiple airports at a glance. Great Job! The first version the text ran off the end of the widget. This one seems to work well.

Works great, and I love it...but it's ugly as sin. Still, 4 stars. Thanks!
