    After updating on note 3, no data is displayed. Also says no forecast available. Strangely enough, both data and forecast were working fine just before update. Was a good app, now just junk.

    App has crashed on my HTC with the latest update. Please fix. It was a great app.

    So the latest update seems to have less information? The "Now" no longer seems to show anything, only blank data, and seems to only have 1 station rather than 4 nearby ones. And the history seems to have lost the long run average/almanac data. No harm knowing how current month stacks up versus long run average, so to me something lost when it's been removed.
