    I've been using BeWeather since the beginning (BerryWeather), but from what I've read about this new update/version on iOS I can really say I'm disappointed.
    I've decided to remain on the old version for now until Pflunger fixes or brings back the customization BeWeather is known for.

    I'm a little disappointed myself. I do like that it's using data from Dark Sky, but so many other features aren't working. I'm not sure if I'll keep this for very long. I think I'll wait for a couple more updates, but if there are no improvements... it's outta here!

    Pflunger? Some may need a plunger when they flush the app!

    I don't know if all the data comes from Dark Sky. I just noticed the rain graph said powered by Dark Sky. But it does appear weather underground is no longer used. TBO, whenever weather underground had issues, so did BeWeather. @pfluger may have made the changes to improve performance.

    Whatever...this weather app has been around a long time and in my opinion should have been released/updated in better working order.

    Agree. There's at least 3 things that don't work.
    1. Widget background color options
    2. Weather icons section
    3. Weather share option to save to camera roll.
    The rest were intentional changes.

    Sorry for the late post.

    There will be a couple updates coming in the next few days/weeks.

    Some of the bug fixes that are coming:

    - Widget not showing according to configuration
    - Custom icons not working
    - Search by zip not working
    - Weather alert notifications not working (complete overhaul is in the works)

    And some new features:

    - Search by street address so you can get precise by minute precipitation forecasts for other than your current location
    - Alternative selectable data points for hourly and daily forecasts (you will be able to switch to wind, uv index, humidity etc)

    The old BeWeather 2 version should keep working for a couple of days but might stop at any moment when Weather Underground cuts their weather data service.

    I just checked my Series 3 Watch after seeing your reply and tapped on the weather icon on its display and realized that it was Dark Sky.....smh...I then checked the installed app list and noticed that BeWeather is no longer installed. Thanks for the follow-up, sir.

    I'm glad I saw your reply because if I hadn't, I would have continued on thinking that BeWeather Pro 3 was installed on my Watch. I knew it was there before the update because I keep the same 3 weather apps installed (BeWeather, The Weather Channel & Dark Sky) and it is usually the complication.

    I agree that it’s only fair to give it a try. Since posts started showing up here on iMore, the developer shared that it’s a work in progress, so I’m content to hang in there!

    We have a beta version available (Version 3.0.16). Feel free to download and test. Please post your feedback here.

    https://testflight.apple.com/join/Jijx2Mid

    New features:
    - Search by street address so you can get precise by minute precipitation forecasts for other than your current location
    - Alternative selectable data points for hourly and daily forecasts (you will be able to switch to wind, uv index, humidity etc)
    - Added new cloud cover data point to current condition data slots
    - Location names can now be edited by tapping on the location name in the title
    - All locations in widget now have minutely forecast data (where available)

    Bug fixes:
    - Fixed widget not showing according to configuration
    - Fixed custom icons not working
    - Fixed app crashing when sharing a weather photo and then saving to photo library on iOS 11+
    - Fixed red location indicator not showing on map
    - Now skipping hourly forecast items if they are in the past
    - Many minor fixes

    Known issues:
    - Data updates are lagging (i.e. weather data might not be updated right away every time after opening the app)

    This version will reset your settings (theme, units etc). Your list of locations should not be affected.

    I really like the Selectable data points for hourly and daily!!! This really adds a lot more information and value.

    I have a few minor formatting suggestions/issues that I will send in a separate reply later.

    One request: for pressure can we have the option to show this as inches HG instead of millibars?

    No other issues so far. Widget and custom icons are working for me.

    I'm in! Can confirm widget background color options work. However, the forecast temperatures do not show.

    I'm not sure what to make of this. In the "next 7 days" section in the app, it shows rain @ 100% when it was sunny, night when it should show day, etc.

    Same here. I had nothing but Clear and Sunny weather all day (Sunday), but it's showing 100% rain and Monday is showing the USMC night time icon (silver) as opposed to day time icon (gold)...

    I'm getting some overlap on some settings in the Current Conditions section at the bottom. iPhone 6s Plus



    This seems to have corrected itself when I switched the data points on daily a few times.
