    It would be nice to set the default weather location to Knoxville, TN instead of Knoxville, GA. Yes I added my own location, but cannot remove the Georgia location.

    Loved the old version even when it would boot me off time to time. Now I can't even use it cause I won't load. What good is an app if it won't load.
