A Yahoo weather app. It works for international locations.
Includes forecast and thermometer display.

I hope it can show the weather all over the world ;-)

    Thanks for looking into the updating problem. I've since noticed that it is actually caused by Yahoo. Their website is sometimes very slow to update the weather data for overseas (Australian) locations. There is one way that we can workaround this annoyance. Instead of listing 'Today' and 'Tomorrow' in your widget, please state the actual name of the day ('Monday' and 'Tuesday') instead. This way, we'll know immediately whether Yahoo hasn't bothered to update the weather data for a few days. Another thing is that I'm hoping you can list the minimum temperatures in blue text and the maximums in red. It'd also be good if you can increase the font size of those temperature texts.

    Xavion thanks for your message. There was a bug in the update mechanism. I fixed it. The app should now make a hourly update of the weather data.

    My clock applications are correctly showing that today is November 15, but your Yahoo! Weather application still thinks today is November 12. This means that it's displaying the weather information for the wrong days, which is totally useless. How long will it take you to fix this problem?

    Thanks a lot for your help. I fixed the typo and embedded the font. So the input field should be rendered to the correct place.

    Congratulations on a very nice looking widget. It displays well even on the smaller devices (I have Chumby Classics and a One) and has a lovely clean, clear look. Since you obviously have very high standards, I'm sure you won't be offended if I point out two tiny problems - when you go to configure it, the boxes to type in the info are offset to the right and half out of the screen. Also, there is a typo - 'display' reads 'disply'.

    Is it possible to give me some additional information? What happened? Your hardware environment? (Chumby Classic, Chumby One or Chumby 8 …) I hope this could help me to fix the problems ;-) I tested the app on my Chumby Classic and my android phone. Unfortunately I have no new device like Chumby 8 or Infocast.
