NEW
Appy Weather+ users now get 1-tap (smart) access to Dark Sky's radar. To be clear, it's a web link to Dark Sky Maps that loads within the app, is optimised for faster access than if visited via your browser (note: can get the maximum speed by going to Settings to preload the radar, but beware that it may impact data use/battery life, and so it's only recommended if neither is a concern and you expect to check the radar regularly — it's still pretty fast with this setting off), and automatically opens to the location you're currently checking the weather of.

2019.08.13


NEW
Added "Black" and "Light ⤻ Black" themes.
IMPROVED
Widgets and Notifications settings categories tidied up.
IMPROVED
Free users now have read-only Widgets and Notifications categories on their Settings screen, so that they're aware settings for both exist on an upgrade, and also learn where they'd need to go post-upgrade to access them.
FIXED
Appy Weather+ widgets should now be available for all phones, regardless of screen size/display properties. Optimisations also made to ensure there are no appearance issues by showing a bit less information when there's less room available.
FIXED
There should no longer be any inconsistency, however slight, between the temperature reported on status bar with that on any widget.

2019.08.12


NEW
Added a "Current Temperature" notification setting for Appy Weather+ users, enabling you to either permanently display the temperature on your phone's status bar or in your notification tray. There is also an option to have the current temperature/weather summary display on your lock screen! Screenshots:

Current temperature on status bar or in notification tray

NEW
Added a "Landing Page" setting (in a new "Startup" category) that allows you to set the default screen to land on when app is loaded. Can choose between the Hourly, Daily and Timeline screens — defaults to Timeline.
IMPROVED
Removed 10 weather requests per day limit for free users.
IMPROVED
Changed default Layout setting for new installs to "Dense" (regardless of phone display), as it's become apparent that the "Comfy" option is the more divisive of the two, and so best to be conservative with the default pick.

2019.08.07


IMPROVED
It should now be more discoverable that the (bottom) Navigation Bar is in fact scrollable! Scroll up to access locations, and down to change the view. Alternatively, you can tap on the scroll buttons on the right to navigate between the different sections. If you already knew about this functionality, great, and hopefully it's even easier now thanks to the new scroll buttons for a one-tap change. And if you didn't, then this should unlock functionality and make switching between locations much easier! For anyone still reading, with phones getting bigger and bigger (and not having the biggest hands myself), it's a challenge I set myself to make Appy Weather not only optimised for one-handed use, but delightful even. Hopefully you'll agree changes like this one support this mission.
FIXED
A number of stability improvements based on a review of crash reports logged.

2019.08.05


IMPROVED
Launch times improved — should be more noticeable on older hardware, but the improvement applies across the entire device spectrum. App will take slightly more storage space to facilitate this.
IMPROVED
When a sad face is displayed in a Weekend/Next Week card on the Timeline, the accompanying weather icon should now be more distinguishable.
IMPROVED
If precipitation probability for a day is less than 50% but still possible, text that presents time it's most possible if it does actually occur tweaked from "more likely" to "most possibly".
FIXED
If you're using the Light ⤻ Dark theme, and the app is resumed, a refresh should correctly apply any theme change necessary.
FIXED
The summary for Next 7 Days should no longer highlight the incorrect day coming up that will have the lowest temperature when there's precipitation expected.

2019.07.23


IMPROVED
The phone's nav bar should be dark (with white buttons) when Appy Weather is using a Dark theme. If you're seeing any issues, such as the colour of the buttons being incorrectly dark too, please email bardi.golriz@outlook.com.

2019.07.22


NEW
Added "City" option for the "Current Location Display" setting.
IMPROVED
When you pick either street or area for "Current Location Display", if a street or area name isn't returned for your current location, it more intelligently falls back on the next most specific desired alternative.

2019.07.17


FIXED
Correct date for when a weather warning is up to should always display.

2019.07.16


NEW
Added a "Layout" setting, enabling you to change the compactness of the interface. Existing users should mostly default to "Comfy" which is what it's been set to since launch, but you can now change to "Dense" if you'd like less whitespace. New users, on the other hand, will have the setting default to whatever is considered to provide the best viewing experience based on the phone's specs/display settings (as will existing users where this recommendation applies to).
IMPROVED
When "Area" is picked for the "Current Location Display" setting, it will attempt to identify a more local location first, before falling back on a more general area name.

2019.07.15


NEW
Added a "Current Location Display" setting that determines how precisely to display your current location's name (area or street); it defaults to "street" which is what had been used up to this point. Scroll down to the bottom of Settings to get to this option in the new Advanced category.
FIXED
No unnecessary double space after the degree symbol in any body text.
FIXED
There should no longer be a cut-off on the welcome screen on any device regardless of display characteristics.

2019.07.12


FIXED
Fixed issue with free users being informed that they hit their 10 requests a day prematurely (incorrectly).

2019.07.11


FIXED
If the text size of your location name on a Now widget is reduced because it's a long location name, it should return to a normal text size when/if your location changes and its name is short again.

2019.07.10


NEW
Based on customer feedback, added a new Font option to Settings allowing you to change it a more neutral (system) Roboto.
NEW
When the app has been updated, you'll now get a card at the top of the Timeline linking you to its release notes.
IMPROVED
When the app needs to restart after a setting change, such as with the theme set, it will now be instant.
IMPROVED
The Hourly screen now has a link to open the full-screen Today card at the top for increased discoverability and consistency with the Tomorrow link further down the screen.
IMPROVED
Should be faster to get your current location, impacting launch and refresh times.
IMPROVED
Laca font updated to latest version — should look cleaner than before.
FIXED
Timeline should always show the correct set of cards on a refresh/view change.

2019.07.04


IMPROVED
Another check in-place to prevent an incorrect (not as absurd as before, but nonetheless still silly) temperature difference between two days to be reported in a Reports notification or greeting string at the top of the Timeline.
FIXED
When you select a location from the Locations scroller in the Bottom Nav, selected colour status of locations should be correct (i.e. selected location highlighted, others dimmed).
FIXED
When changing your default location, it should never set it to the incorrect one (this could happen previously under specific circumstances).
FIXED
If your default location isn't your current location, the first location record on a new launch will now be "Current Location" for clarity, and not whatever your location was when you last checked it.
FIXED
Optimisations made to potentially improve launch times.
FIXED
If sunrise happening at the current minute, Timeline won't incorrectly state sunset is.

2019.07.03


NEW
New XS Now widgets (light/dark text variations) for Appy Weather+ subscribers who've requested a 1x1 widget.
IMPROVED
More stability improvements, working through the crash logs.

2019.07.02


IMPROVED
Bar colour on the Daily chart in the Dark theme is less subtle and should be much easier to make out.
IMPROVED
Check in-place to prevent an absurd temperature difference between two days to be reported in a Reports notification or greeting string at the top of the Timeline.
FIXED
[Search] button now goes away when you've been auto-scrolled to the Views section if you were on the Locations section in the Bottom Nav, and then clicked on a card on the Timeline that has a chart. (Will return when you close the card with the chart)

2019.06.30


FIXED
Another tweak made to ensure if location name is past a certain length that the integrity of the Now widget layout is preserved.

2019.06.28


NEW
First sponsor is in for free users: the newest member of the Third Culture Apps' family — ruff.

2019.06.27


NEW
Added setting to hide the date on the Now widgets.
IMPROVED
Now widget sub-section added in Settings to make it more clear that the new Date and previous Clock checkboxes only apply to the Now widgets.
IMPROVED
More stability improvements after reviewing the last week's crash reports.
FIXED
If location name is lengthy on the Now widget, it should no longer push temperature to run over multiple lines and be cut-off.
FIXED
Comparison with yesterday's weather (if available) should appear as a full summary if app is launched early in the morning, and bite-sized before mid-day.
FIXED
Comparison with yesterday's weather (if available) should only appear for your default location.

2019.06.18


IMPROVED
Stability improvements made after reviewing recent crash reports.

2019.06.17


IMPROVED
Increased number of weather requests per day for free users to 10 supported by feedback and analytics. Will continue to monitor closely to ensure the sweet user + dev friendly spot is hit.
IMPROVED
Language used to describe weather requests limit tweaked for improved clarity.
FIXED
Fixed incorrect subtitle text showing in the last column of the Timeline widget, sometimes causing the contents to extend further than desired.

2019.06.13


NEW
Added setting to show a clock on the Now widgets — off by default, so you'll need to turn it on.
FIXED
An incoming notification that's not been interacted with should not hijack the app state when you launch the app normally.
FIXED
Summary on widgets should no longer repeat that there's precipitation both now and later (sometimes this was correct technically, but sometimes it was inaccurate).

2019.06.11


NEW
You can now tap on all widgets to launch the app, whether the app is running in the background or not. The tap target area is alongside the new expand icon in the widget's title text. Improvements still to come to ensure tapping on "Upcoming" takes you straight to the Daily tab.
IMPROVED
Summary on widgets no longer unnecessarily mentions precipitation "at X" when it's expected to from the first hour covered by the widget, as it's misleading potentially suggesting precipitation is starting from this time when in fact it could have been continuining from a previous hour.
IMPROVED
If your default location is your current, and you've a widget on the homescreen, your location should update more reliably.
FIXED
Widgets are now optimised to ensure when the system font isn't Roboto that no temperature value undesirably runs over multiple lines. Column layout for days has needed to be tweaked, and font size overall reduced to accomodate for this.
FIXED
When temperature is in Fahrenheit and temperature is 100 °F+, day low temperature should no longer get cutoff on widgets.
FIXED
Date (beside day name) should no longer run over 2 lines in widgets.
FIXED
When you change tabs, the tabs that are not in view will not have an incorrect selected appearance.
FIXED
When you tap on today's/tomorrow's report notification, should now always open the correct full-screen day card.

2019.06.10


NEW
Comparison with yesterday should appear at the top of the Timeline if first app launch is in the morning (rather than early morning when the more detailed summary string appears).
IMPROVED
Precipitation notifications should be sent with greater (expected) frequency when there's precipitation throughout the day, especially when it's initially not forecast to happen for the entire day.
IMPROVED
Accessibility colour tweaks, noticeable primarily with subtitle text — now AA compliant.
IMPROVED
Introduced minimum height for a bar on the Daily chart, ensuring icon should always be contained within the bar (and not extend outside).
FIXED
Summary of the day should now always appear at the top of the Timeline in the early morning regardless of when you last launched the app.
FIXED
When your current location's name is lengthy, text size on the Now widget reduced to ensure the widget doesn't overrun causing the icon and/or temperature to not be visible.
FIXED
Added missing space between sentences on the Now widget when the weather both now and later is precipitation.
FIXED
Comparison of precipitation between two days should be more accurate now (for example, when two cards are linked in the Timeline of days with precipitation).

2019.06.05


IMPROVED
Any background work being executed for widgets should less likely interfere with the app's reliability when it's in the foreground.
FIXED
Removed all instances of a mistaken double space on widgets' summary strings.
