I'm using weather underground to show my weather station data.

.The current temperature is shown constantly in notification area on my HTC so I don't have to open anything. Using the three day weatherunderground widget on my home screen.

Metservice app on another screen, where it will stay until a 3 day widget appears on met service app.

freitasm: I have screenshots. It shows the temp inside the app but not on widget. Not keen on having to tap twice, wait for ad to load, to see temp...


Hi Mauricio, I'll get our dev team to contact you about this problem (Stephanie our digital product manager is on leave this week).

Hey freitasm, we made some changes to the widget on June 5.  Have you updated the app since then?  Are you still seeing this issue?  Are you using the current or custom location?




(Accuweather uses the airport observations for the whole region up to palmerston north, so the current might show up but it also might not reflect the conditions where you are.)

I'm getting the offline message lately, is this due to demand on the app?






iOS latest version


Same on wifi or 4G


The widget takes a while to load, then the screen goes blank due to my timeout. When I go back, its populated but then it reloads, and the timeout happens, other widgets don't have this issue. Oddly the app says offline now, but the widget comes up if I keep the homescreen open, as if online

This app seems very slow on my iphone 6s.


Slow to load, + don't like seeing ads (loading ads slowing things down?). I think I will continue using the default iphone weather app, much more informative.
