    I just installed your app but I can't find the widget - it doesn't show up in the list when I try to add a widget on my Nexus phone. What's wrong?

    Pretty good app, but since the latest Android update, metservice consistently thinks I'm in Auckland, despite changing the settings. The widget is useless if it doesn't even get the right location.

    Doesn't have much of an idea where in New Zealand it's located. My other apps don't have this problem. The developers must live in Auckland because that is where this app just LOVES to tell you about the weather in the widget, despite the fact I live in Wellington.

    This would have to be the worst weather app I have ever used. No isobar maps. Quite literally only weather radar.

    Most of the information is there but this app is missing one of the major things that it should have - a pressure map. The app is not logical to find your way around, its so annoying that I only use the basic features.

    Missing one of the best parts of the full site. The 48 hour temp/wind/rain timetable graph.
