MANY, MANY THANKS

This is a perfect widget which shows the weather in my location in England. All the features are as described by the developer and more - humidity, visibility, pressure and time of observation.

Needs an update. Will crash Amnesty Singles. Impossible to choose a City location other than Edinburgh.

The Widget looks great and is accurate. Unfortunately, it has stopped working. Back to Apple Weather it is.

If you're having a problem with the widget do let me know so I can investigate the issue.

Thanks,

Nice widget, although it gives the forecast only (Highs and Lows), rather than the current temperature... it'll co-exist with Apple's widget on my Dashboard.

Brilliant, just brilliant. The included Tiger weather widget is useless, this one is spot on. Nice design. Great widget. 10/10

Excellent performance!

Beats Apple's offering hands-down. Apple's widget misidentified Dublin as being in the US somewhere, failing to read my localisation data.
The Beeb's widget allows me to chose between Dublin and Dublin Airport for weather.

Most important, it's right. If a widget gets the current weather wrong, what hope has it of getting the forecast right?

Clunk. The Apple weather widget just hit the bin.

0.9.2 seems to have fixed these problems. Now works fine for me.

THANKS TO THE DEVELOPER FOR RESTORING THE CURRENT FORECAST BUT...

... when the previous version showed the current forecast it also showed the update time in the tooltips. I remember that sometimes it wasn't updated for hours and in a few instances even for a whole day. Therefore, the current forecast without indication of when it was updated is simply useless. I hope the developer will address this and make it a five star widget again.

NO LONGER SHOWS CURRENT LOCAL TEMPERATURE

I have noticed the BBC have recently changed the layout of their local weather page. I don't know if this has caused the current local temperature to disappear on the widget but I hope the developer can fix this.
