    Has anyone tried creating a custom iconset? I created a couple of PNG images and ran them through Dropbox for the URL. So, how do I go from here to a .zip file with the extension changed to .bwi? I don't have a clue how to do that.

    I'm loving it!

    I played with it a bit. The icon set that I was using was not square (default appears to be 160 x 160). Mine were like 175 x 130, so they came out looking scrunched

    You can try them if you like. Will need to get the Dropbox url.

    Here's the URL:

    Is all I need the Dropbox URL? Mine are Square. Don't know the res size. I can check.
    They were 2160x2160. I resized to 160x160. Is that all I need do?

    For the last few days, the right side of the app menu window has been cut off on my iPad (so I can't get to the Settings button. Also, since the latest update, my chosen icon set shows in the app, but not in the Notification Center. I'd post screenshots, but for some reason Tapatalk isn't letting me do that right now.

    They have separate sets now. You need to set the app and the NC screen to the same iconset.

    Unfortunately, I can't do that, because I can't get to the Settings button on the iPad. Works fine on the iPhone, though.

    Note that the temperature and the Settings button are both cut off. I can see them for an instant when the window opens and closes, but can't press the button when it flashes by.

    Yes, known issue with the current beta. It will always crash when trying to load custom icons. Next beta has that fixed.

    Are you on Mac OS X?

    1. Create a folder
    2. Put all the PNG files in there, make sure the naming is correct
    3. Select all the PNG files in the folder, then open the context menu and select 'Compress'
    4. It will create a new Archive.zip file, just rename it to anything you like i.e. 'My Iconset.zip'
    5. Move the .zip file to your Dropbox 'Public' folder
    6. Right click the .zip file in the 'Public' folder and select 'Copy Public Link'
    7. Paste that URL into an e-mail and send it to your phone, there you can copy it again and paste it into BeWeather

    No computer. I created the PNG images, then uploaded to Dropbox. Then saved as URL. Is there a way to do this on my iPhone?

    You need an app that can create a zip file.
    Here's one: WinZip - The leading zip unzip and cloud file management tool by WinZip Computing LLC
    https://appsto.re/us/JeY1D.i
    It says it can zip and unzip files in Dropbox but it may need an in app purchase for that.

    One more thing - the iconset should contain 68 icons.

    I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm checking out iZip Pro. I've had it a good while, but never used it. I can do 68 if I can figure out how to do it all.

    I think you need to go to the Dropbox section and download the png files so they are local to the app.
    Then in the local section, select all 68 png files and select the zip button at the bottom. Give the zip a name and once it's done upload the zip back to Dropbox.

    Thanks, Karen! That will help. I have to create my 68 PNG icons and size then to 160x160.? Hank said the default was that size. That will take me a while. I could download some, but that's not as fun.
