    pfluger,

    Congrats on your release and positive initial reviews.

    Do you intend to continue with the public beta for future changes?

    Here is my wish list for the next release, I think most on are your list:

    1. Allow map speed change options.

    2. Bold text for alerts

    3. Pure black background themes and/or allow more advanced customization with pick background color and pick font color.

    Also, I the app is closing sometimes when I tap on it to open.

    I got the can't connect to App Store error as well with the promo code...and then I thought "Screw it" and bought the app. It's the least I can do for all the work and lord knows the app is worth it. $2.99 is far cheaper than what I paid for be weather in BB World anyway lol.

    I think he mentioned a widget map for a future update. Or something. Don't recall exactly.

    Yes, we plan to keep pushing out beta versions via TestFlight. All feedback etc will go into the now 'official' BeWeather 2 thread here in iMore.

    Here is my wish list for the next release, I think most on are your list:

    1. Allow map speed change options.

    2. Bold text for alerts

    3. Pure black background themes and/or allow more advanced customization with pick background color and pick font color.
    All on our list.

    Also, I the app is closing sometimes when I tap on it to open.
    We have multiple reports about this. We haven't been able to reproduce this yet. I hope we can have a fix soon.

    One thing I just noticed in the widget I'd that when I have a weather alert it shows the red bar, but it shows the name of the city instead of what type of weather alert it is. It would be useful to have it show the alert or even scroll the alert.

    A couple of things on the beta.
    1) the icon at the top under the location is ever so slightly cut off
    Attachment 72301
    2) changing locations in the widget sometimes gets the Unable to Load message. Swiping Notification Center closed and open a few times refreshes it or something and the location you were trying to view shows in the widget
    Attachment 72302
    3) suggestion - a setting in the app for the widget to only show the current location. I never use the alternate locations in the widget except to test it
    4) suggestion - rather than maintain each locations' scroll position when switching locations, could it make the scroll position the same on each page. So if I've scrolled to the bottom on my main location and I switch to the second location, it would also be at the bottom? Same for whether a section was expanded or not. If I expand it on one location, I'd like it to be already expanded when I switch locations.

    Up until this past week, I was receiving alert notifications to my lock screen and NC screen each hour. But now I get 3 early in the morning. One at 4:00 am, 5, and 6. Then they stop until the next morning.??

    Just downloaded my invite to the free beta (it had gotten stuck in spam purgatory).
    I noted the following; 1) display overlap on location list 2) weather map never loaded 3) I had one crashed yet scrolling past last location but I couldn't replicate it.

    I've got 5 beta Apps in TestFlight. The only ones that go to Spam Purgatory are the BeWeather apps. All the others come in on the inbox. The others are on different gmail accounts though. But still odd. They're all iTunes, which I have in contacts and set as VIP in mail. ?
    Anyhow, the free version has the same "share" issue as the paid version. Here's an example I put on a black background to see the issue better.

    Again, as I said before, you can barely make out the BeWeather logo and name. And the white strip at the top looks bad. So far everything else looks ok. Gotta look some more.

    2. The "Upgrade Now" button needs a better spot so as not to anger users. It's sorta in the way. Like this:

    The free version seems to lag behind the paid version with the temp badge. I have to launch the app to update the temp.

    Have you tried switching to a different personal weather station. Some update more timely than others. You can set to see "reported at" and tell when they update their info.

    The free version is limited in the number of locations you can add. That should avoid the overlapping as you cannot add that many locations. I will have to double check. Your suggested layout does make sense though.

    You can have more locations in the free version if you have the paid version installed. The sync their settings, so whatever number of locations you have in the paid version will also be in the free one.

    The free version does not support the homescreen icon temperature badge. Temperature badge, weather alerts and lockscreen weather are the only features not available in the free version. (Basically everything that would run in the background. We have to limit the number of data requests to our servers) You will get a upgrade request message when you try to enable them in the free version.

    The problem here is that settings are synced between the free and paid version. As you have turned the setting on in the paid version, it was also somehow half-heartedly enabled in the free version ;-)

    They do have separate notifications listed in the phone's settings. I turned the badge for the free version off. The 2 seem completely independent of one another. But that may just be my perception. I suppose the syncing causes that perception.

    We need your help! The free version needs reviews.

    If you have a minute, it would be great if you could download BeWeather 2 Free at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bewe...mUvbUpU2471623 and leave a review for it! You can of course uninstall it right away if you are already use the paid version.

    It seems to work as well as the paid version. I have much of it turned off so as not to interfere with the paid version. But I find no issues.

    In pfluger's defense, the free version only allows 5 locations, so the fact that the update button partially obscures the "add location" link below the 5th location is really not an issue.

    I am having an issue with both the free and the paid version. I was out of the country for about 10 days. I've been back for > 20 hours, but the location-based location is still showing the out-of-the-country airport location. I have done a hard reset, and force-quit both the free and paid version. Privacy > Location > BeWeather (paid and free) are both set to ALWAYS.
