@bumski - Agreed.....our development team is aware of this. This issue resides where the feed is being pulled from. We may/hope to get this request implemented in the near future. -chumby support

It would be nice to be able to read the WHOLE STORY! When you drill down to the story you only get the first line.

@Rafti - Thank you for letting us know the issues with this app. We have submitted these to the developer. -chumby support

11751 is the Zip Code for Islip NY, it comes up as Bayberry Point NY, which is only three streets within Islip, not a town or separate zip code. It would be nice if there was a way to read or link to the local news beyond the 1 ½ line snippet that ends with “…” such as “Susan Sally Boville director of the center for …” It would also be helpful if the traffic map could be dragged. Even with the bugs it’s still one of my favorite apps!

In my app, the date does not change at midnight. For instance, my zip is 10024, it's 4/25 12:24 EST now but it still says Saturday 4/24. Everything else seem to work OK. Known bug?
April 12, 2011
Hello everyone: FWIX reported the issues are fixed, and personally looking over the zipcodes in the comments, it appears it is. Please report any issues here or at http://gsfn.us/t/27xfr
I really like this app but I can't always reach my Chumby screen to see all of the information. Would it be possible to cycle through the traffic, weather, and news?

Hi chumbians, we have this logged with FWIX here: http://gsfn.us/t/27xfr
Feel free to add your specific info if it is not captured here.

To all our valued chumbians, this bug has been filed and is currently being addressed.

Same story here -- getting UK news feeds for the past week even though my location is shown correctly in the upper left corner, and weather is for the correct location. Zip 44xxx in Ohio USA.
March 27, 2011
Hmmm. I live in Wisconsin. 53225 and Im getting news from the UK ! Aside from that its cool.

Is anyone out there listening? Today it's reporting news from Binghampton NY for Zip 44118, which is near Cleveland OHIO. The geographic locations for this app are WRONG WRONG WRONG for the Cleveland Area. Thanks if you can fix this!

It's still reporting news from North Carolina to Cleveland Ohio zip codes. This is the source: http://www.shelbystar.com/
Can anyone update the data feeds to remove this source for Cleveland, Ohio zip codes like 44118?
OK, it's still mixing up news sources. Cleveland Ohio does not equal Cleveland County North Carolina! This source:
http://www.shelbystar.com/ is in North Carolina and many of the Cleveland Ohio news stories come from this source, incorrectly. Thanks in advance for fixing this.

Put two copies of Local Info on their own channel, and set them to switch up every five or 10 minutes. They'll ping-pong back and forth, and the temp will never be more than 5 or ten minutes old...
It's the best workaround I can think of till they fix it... (Which I can't believe they haven't yet...)
January 1, 2011
The temperature does not seem to be updating. The app is saying 30 degrees right now; meanwhile, it's actually 54 outside. I'd like to use this app but, until this is fixed, sadly I can't.

Best Widget I;ve used
November 8, 2010
The data we're using for this app treats some zip codes - like 71201 - as part of the nearest "metro" area. We've alerted the data provider and they are working on a fix that could be released in the next few months.

spacegravity4me, if local Monroe news is what you want, grab the Generic RSS Reader and paste:

That's 'local' information in the US, I would guess. Not everyone lives in cleveborough, okladokey. Would it kill you to add 'American' to the title?
From the rest of the world.

This app would be AMAZING but it keeps giving me news from shreveport! I'm in a city 2 hours away. zip code is 71201. Just letting you know in case there's something you might be able to do about it. Keep it up.

The traffic section of this widget is so good, it deserves its own dedicated widget. Please consider!
October 28, 2010
Any chance we can make this work in Canada too?

Like sultnwoz reported on September 22, 2010, the weather (current temp, explicitly) doesn't update without restarting the app... Leads me to believe the NOAA data is fine but there is a bug in the refresh. (My zip is 18069.)
October 10, 2010
Dang that's a slick widget. Developers take notice...
October 7, 2010
Small bug: "Sunday" doesn't get printed; instead it is "undefined". Thank you for adding the weather drill-down.
September 28, 2010
We've added drill-down weather, and fixed the Dash misalignment issue. We're still investigating the particular issues with Cleveland, OH...
September 23, 2010
GEO for this app is sometimes incorrect. I live in Cleveland Ohio Zip 44118 and receive news stories from Cleveland County South Carolina. Needs a bit more precision as to filtering out news stories!
Would rather replace the news with a 3-day weather forecasts, perhaps replacing the current weather forecast with a radar (animated would be even better).
Like the idea of news, but it has a hard time finding relevant stuff for my town -- more like state-wide news, not local.
Great app! The screen is misaligned slightly on the Dash.
Interested to see that different parts of the screen are differently interactive, but surprised that the weather is not. If I could get the weekly forecast from that, I can dump another widget or two and streamline my channel
Overall, it's now part of my morning line-up. Good work!
September 22, 2010
Weather for zip 44118 hasn't changed since this app was released and is a week old! Get a better source for weather, I think the NOAA app is broke. Otherwise it's great though I think it gets Cleveland Ohio confused with Cleveland Tennessee.
September 21, 2010
Thumbed! Good job. Pretty and functional.
THIS WIDGET TELS ZOLTAR EVERYTHING HE NEEDES TO KNOW AT A GLANSE!! :O

THIS MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT USING THE INTERNET
