    Is the beta still available?
    You have to download the TestFlight app...it's working.

    Yes. I reported that earlier in this thread. I’m not sure if that’s by design or not.
    It is by design. If I remember correctly using the custom font the numbers never fit properly. We might take a look at this again.

    Restricting icons to 12 for custom sets has created problems. What is the reason for this limitation? Inserting default icons in my custom set ruins it. Using custom sets is one of the main reasons I use BeWeather. I don't have a way to make changes in the sets I created.
    DarkSky is providing the information what icon to use. Unfortunately it differs a lot from what Weather Underground gave us.

    For custom iconsets we might create a fallback system were we translate DarkSky's icon names to the old Weather Underground ones so the sets work without changes.

    This is not as easy as it sounds though. For example when DarkSky only tells us 'fog' we have to figure out if this is day or night etc. Also the old sets never included 'wind' as that wasn't reported by WU. We would have to show sunny/clear night instead. And again we would have to figure out if it is day or night.

    I have downloaded the app to my phone, but it shows "No Apps Available to Test"
    There is a "Redeem" link that asks for a
    Redeem Code: Enter your TestFlight invitation code.
    Any ideas?

    After you download TestFlight then go back and press the BeWeather (Start Testing) button.

    @pfluger, this sounds a bit challenging but it there is anyway for you to do this it will be greatly appreciated by many of us long time users. Otherwise a lot of the existing custom sets that will be less usable. Thank you.

    One thing I noticed for me the widget will not update the temperature right away, when I open the app the temperature will be different then what the widget says for that location.

    So app has the correct temp but the widget will not.

    All apps in the widget area update when the widget is opened. They are not designed to update until the widget is opened. At least that's how my iPhone Xs Max works. My BeWeather widget updates rather quickly in my opinion.

    No that is not how it should be, on Beweather 2 I had the temp the same on the widget as when I opened the app.

    Seems there is some kind of bug. Even after I open the app the widget will have a different temp.

    Most widget update if you swipe to the left and have internet connection, there is no need to open the app to have the widget updated.

    When I go to my widgets all the apps update. I don't have to go into the app itself.
    Are you saying that BeWeather doesn't update your BeWeather widget unless you go into the app?

    I'm not experiencing any problems with my BeWeather widget.

    Do you have the same location on the widget as in the app? My widget always shows the same temp on both. The widget should update just as the app does. I just swiped to the widget, and it updated to 56°. I then opened the app, and it updated to 56°.

    yes I have the same location, normally I wouldn't have to go to the app but when I do, the app will show a degree warmer or two obviously because it has been opened and updated but then I look at the widget it shows different temperature degree or two lower, the widget will update itself maybe 20 to 40 minutes after to have the same temperature as on the opened app. I am using the teal widget theme, not sure maybe themes have something to do with it?

    Yeah, that's not right. Should be almost instantly once widget is opened. Maybe delete and reinstall BeWeather 3 beta

    I wouldn't think the theme color has anything to do with it. The widget and the app should update to the same temp. Whatever temp Dark Sky is for your location. Technology isn't always perfect though. Keep an eye on it and see how it goes. May have been a temporary glitch.

    Everything seems to be working fine here. No opportunity for an alert. I like the Purple theme. I am suspect of Dark Sky, but as I said before, so long as they don't use DS radar colors, it is fine.

    But positive report from me.

    Thanks Cletus

    I just installed the app yesterday. It looks good. However, I've not gotten any notifications. I know that a few people have shared that they have received some, so I thought I would mention this!

    I have two email subscription alerts that I get. So if I get one of those, then I'd expect BeWeather to send one too. There is a fairly big storm coming so tomorrow my phone should light up with alerts.
    Fingers crossed.

    Also make sure to turn weather alert notifications on in BeWeather. They are off by default.

    Since I turned it on last night before going to sleep, I haven't gotten any. It's rained off and on all night, and I have plenty of other alerts from other weather apps on my phone.
