    You have the Beta?
    I do.

    So far, my only issue is "way too many choices". Font selection is great, but would like to see the Helvetica Neue. And the number of icon sets is overwhelming. But I like the layout, and there is a butt-load of data.

    And I haven’t even gotten to play with the widget yet.

    pfluger,

    You have a real winner here! I really like the app, the UI, and the customization features.

    How do you want feedback sent to you? In this thread?
    All feedback in this thread please.

    One feature/gesture I would like is to tap on the main temperature number and have the main view 'reset':
    1. Scroll to the top, close the map, close the forecast graph if expanded.

    I keep touching the temp to try to reset the view and also trying to pull down the page so the top is perfectly aligned.
    I hope this makes sense.

    A variation of this would be it you tap on the main temp number it closes map, etc. and if you tap on it again it goes back to prior view with map open.
    If I understand correctly you want an easy way to get something like the attached screenshot?

    Having the map partially visible is the "default" view. I can see where it sometimes might be preferable to see more data and no map.

    We were once testing with having the top and bottom part snap together once they get close enough.

    Yes, I think cutting down on the font choices (especially since there is no font preview yet) is a good idea. Right now 'Default' is Helvetica Neue.
    We might also merge 'Labels Font' and 'Data Font'. I think this is just confusing for most.

    Not much we can do about the iconset choices. These were all made by and submitted to us by loyal BlackBerry users over the last years ;-)

    Thanks for that info. Didn’t realize that the default font was Helvetica Neue. Maybe you could indicate that somehow.

    I think merging the font settings (Labels and Data) is a good move. I probably wouldn’t set different fonts for the app and the widget, but I can see why some may want that option.

    I get the iconset thing, but it’s still overwhelming, nonetheless.

    As soon as I'm able to download TestFight, I will be joining you Beta Testers. I think there's a problem because I've been waiting for the download to complete ....

    If you have problems downloading the beta, use the native mail app.
    I tried initially with the gmail app and it only brought me to the AppStore to open testflight (was already on the phone)

    Like it so far. It uses weather underground info. That's cool, because it's more localized. I get the current temp here in my neighborhood, rather than 20 miles away at the airport. Motion was on for the map, and I wasn't sure about the green blobs dancing around. After consulting 2 other radar maps, It has to be either radar ground clutter or a glitch of some sort. In the screenshot, you can see the green blob.
    There were several that moved quickly about. At one point it showed in the bottom brown area. Other than that, it looks and works great! Here's the screenshot:
    Update: The green blob seems to be gone now from the "Map in Motion" feature. It showed the first time, but works great now.

    I had no problem with that. Have you tried a hard reset? Then try again.

    Yes I have. Contacted Apple and I'm going to have to do a device reset. Not to thrilled about that.

    I don't see an option for custom sets in this version. Just the "Share" image i showed. But I don't see anything like what you have on the old version. I've looked all through the settings. You can change the font style and it has different theme icons. I used the "Autumn Goodness" iconset. Maybe no custom image sets because of the added widget options. Even without that, this will be my favorite weather app. One thing I wish it had that Weather Underground has, is the weather radio. I get that here. Many places do not for some reason. But I'll keep weather underground too. Did you mean you have to restore?

    Kudos for that!
    I love the app thus far. One comment regarding the temp badge is that it needs to be refreshed to show the right temp. But with iOS 8's widgets nowadays I really don't need temp badges. My other comment is in regards to the above image (courtesy of Ledsteplin): I would really like the option of only showing the top half without the details in the bottom half. Regardless, I think you have a winner here and I'm so glad BeWeather is back! (It's pretty chilli in Florence, no? )

    Yeah, you can show just the top half. I used 2 widget sections on that. There are 5 to choose from.

    I would like a 'close all' function if you tap on the big temp number: 1: close map, 2: close forecast rain view, 3: set hourly strip to beginning if it had been scrolled over.

    Then if you tap on temp again it would open map and maybe open forecast rain view.

    This would allow you to quickly go back and forth to different views.

    Ideally, we could also have a preference to have default view with map closed.

    A couple of issues/questions:

    1. The next hour powered by forecast section only shows up for first location. It does not show for other locations. Is is supposed to work this way?

    2. The Day line could be formatted a bit better, specifically the high/low temps seem too far off to the right even with larger weather icons and rain showing for the day.

    I've found that the current temp in the App and on the icon badge is directly related to the personal weather station it's set on. Mine differ. I switched stations, and the temp rose 5. The temp on the widget still is more correct though. It updates faster than both the app and the badge. I have yet to figure that one out. If you're close to an airport, set it on that. But, yeah, some of the personal weather stations don't update as quick as others.
