    I see that too. Its almost like a slow "bounce" of the widget below BeWeather 2. Its not Fantastical, but ANY widget immediately below BeWeather. I move my widgets around, and the issue follows the widget below BeWeather, regardless of where it is on the list of widgets (top, middle, bottom) or what it is.
    I've seen that kind of action in the App Store when I download an app. There's this bounce action after I enter my password. It must be a loading thing.

    Both the app and widget are working well for me so far. Will play around more tomorrow.

    The way it goes up beneath the top part? Mine does that a little. I just adjust it. It is rather annoying. But not a huge issue.

    I couldn't adjust it / swipe it down. Plus that the old locations are displayed just fine, the one with Blackhawk being one of the old locations.

    Do you have Map Preview Off? If not, turn it off and see if that helps.

    OK will check that later, I've no Internet connection on my phone right now. That could be the culprit.

    I’ve noticed that, as well. About half of the weather icon is up under the location name, and it does not respond to attempts to scroll/slide it down. I have Map Preview OFF, and the only way to "fix" it is to pull down on the Daily Forecast to open the map, then tap the X to close the map. When the screen comes back, it is correct.

    I have 3 locations plus GPS defined (4 screens total), and this is quite noticeable as you scroll across location to location - some are correct and some exhibit this strange behavior.

    I don’t thinks so. I am seeing it too, and I have both wifi and cellular service.

    If you close the map by pulling up the bottom part of the screen to meet the top part, you will have that issue. But if you close the map tapping the X in the upper left corner, it should not happen.

    True, you can hit the X and close the map, but the new feature is to pull up on the map to close it. The new feature is not working quite right yet. It's pretty jumpy. But if the attention to detail taken throughout the app so far is any indication, I think they'll get it fixed before prime time.

    And I like having the map open by default. I usually just look at the map when I go into a weather app. If I wanted to know the current temp, I would just pull down the NC. I go into the app to see exactly where the rain is to see when a good window would be to drive home and not have to deal with the people who can't drive in the rain and are surprised about the rain because their flip phone they're using to text their significant other about being late for dinner didn't warn them about it.

    Anywho, I'm still not having an issue with the widget. I'll cycle through some icon sets tomorrow and update the spreadsheet, but the few I've tried so far haven't made any difference whatsoever.

    I can't get the widget to display at all now with the new beta.
    What phone are you using? Maybe I can replicate that if I test on the same one.

    A more minor thing, after the update, the settings panel showed my icon set but the forecast didn't use it. I had to re select it.
    It looks like it reset my iconset and font settings in both the app and the widget. Still running through my list.

    EDIT: I see what you mean, Karen. The name of the iconset was correct, but the displayed iconset was the default set. I reset the font, as well, but not 100% sure that it was incorrect.
    Yeah, sorry. I forgot to mention that this update needs you to reselect the weather icons. Some of the settings storage changed, so this was expected.

    I just loaded all of the options. No problem with the widget disappearing but the text forecast now is cut off by my calendar widget.
    Attachment 70165
    It looks like this is a limitation imposed by Apple. No widget can be taller than "one screen full". If you scroll to align the BeWeather widget perfectly to the top of the notification center you will notice the cut off is exactly at the bottom of the screen.

    We are currently tweaking the widget to save vertical space (making the location selector smaller, changing the advisory indicator to be part of the location name etc)

    Known issue. We are trying to figure that one out. Notification center doesn't seem to like it too much when widget's change height.

    EDIT: Figured it out. We left some debugging code in this build that is causing this. ;-)

    I'd like the icon set menus to auto scroll to the selected set upon loading. This would make it a whole lot easier to test them out. That's a big list.
    Good idea and makes sense.

    The swipe up motion to close the map works great and makes a whole lot more sense, but it doesn't have a fluid transition. Or any transition at all. The top and bottom panes just snap closed. It also skips a bit when opening. It's obviously 2 seperate screens trying to transition in sync, but they're not cooperating with each other. Is anyone else seeing this or am I just due for a restart? iOS 8 has been full of skips and battery leaks so far. Big changes under the hood, I suppose.
    Here is a video of how it should look like. Does it look any different on your device?
    I pull the forecast down slowly until the map snaps into fullscreen. Then I swipe up on the toolbar to close.

    Im have the Map Preview OFF, so I dont have that option. I can pull down on the Daily Forecast and the weather map opens up. Then I tap the X in the upper left corner, and the top/bottom of the screen close together to hide the map. Using that process, its "like buttah".
    You can swipe up on the toolbar (the bottom panel with the play/pause button, timeline, hurricane button etc.) to close the map. It is not "interactive", so you can not slowly drag it up, it will just recognize a swipe and then close it.

    Widget with 5 locations, all sections enabled, custom font/theme/iconset on iPhone 5s.

    Anyone with an iPhone 5s or up seeing a "Failed to load" message when using the widget?

    Not too sure about that.
    Blackhawk had an active alert too but the display was fine, but that location was added while using another build.

    I will test again and report back my findings.

    Edit: didn't run into this problem now but only found locations without weather alerts.

    What I did notice is that when you zoom in on the map and accidentally turn it by for instance 45 degrees (f.i. north now pointing towards NNE) there is no easy way to correct this.
    Not a big deal but would be neat if it's possible.

    Yes, it's actually happening more with my 5s now than with previous builds
    Edit; it says "Unable to load"

    I'm on a 6 plus and it happens somewhat randomly. When it shows unable to load, opening the app itself seems to correct it the next time I open NC. This is when using icon sets other than the default set.

    The app itself is still not updating in the background, only when the app is opened.

    Still the best weather app and improving. I think we all appreciate the attention you are giving this.

    This is a great app, and getting better and better!!!

    Noticed one this this morning: I changed the icons in both the app and widget. The app icons changed immediately in the app but I had to reboot for the widget icons to update.

    I'm on a 6+. The widget definitely seems very finicky this time around. Sometimes it displays, sometimes it just shows up completely blank, sometimes it shows the "unable to load" message.
    Last night before I went to bed, it seemed stable with an icon set in the app, but default in the widget, and several locations defined. This morning I checked and the widget is showing up blank. It does briefly flash the weather up like it is trying to display it, but then it disappears.

    Would it be possible to make the swipe down to display the map work if you started the swipe in the top section?
