Useless. API no longer available from Weather Underground. Thus, this app does nothing.

yes, WU blocked free APIKEY, but I had NOTHING to do with that, nor did this app. You gave WU a one star review, but there is no reason to give it to my app. You've never used it! It works GREAT if you have a key!

This isn't Darksky. My darksky apps are no longer in the store. If you got a IQ! error, please use "contact developer, with things like what was happening when it occured.

Works great. I have a weather station in my backyard syncing to Weather Underground and I had no problem getting an API key. Now I can see the data in near real-time on my wrist. I'm running it on a Fenix3 HR. It wasn't obvious in the description of the widget, but if you long-press the up key you can get the option to find the local weather station (based on GPS) or your "home" weather station. Nice feature, but not obvious (to me, at least).

Glad you like it! I too have a WS, and wanted to see the weather in my backyard, and that's why I built it! As far as the long press, I should make that better known! I keep my home station as "home", and yet can easily see what the weather is when I travel, and easily see what's happening in my own back yard!

If you follow the instructions to get your API Key, it works great. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is that as far as I've been able to find, there doesn't seem to be any kind of "forecast" information. It shows current info based on whichever station it connects to, but doesn't show you even simple forecast info like high/low temp and rain chances. If that were there, it'd be a 5 star no question!

Developer Reply
March 10, 2018, jim_m_58

The thing is, forecast data is a separate request (and returns a bunch of data), and with some of the devices I support, it wouldn't work memory wise. I look at doing a second widget with the forecast on devices I can that would allow it

When attempting to get the API code from WU I get an error code on the WU website Oops! There's been a glitch Error Code: 10.226.239.79

Developer Reply

That's on the Weather Underground website. I have no connection to Weather Underground (other than getting data), but I do know others have been able to get a key in the last day or two.

Easy to download but not functioning on my watch (vivoactive 3). Did as suggested in your instructions to obtain a "API Key" but ended up with a non-functioning web page/site and no API Key in sight! PS

Please use 'Contact Developer" and let me know the watch you have, wand what happens when you run it. Is the an error message and if so what is it?

Works great on my VivoActive 3. Really like that it lets you pick a specific weather station if you want.

Good information and options, but slow to load. Probably not much can be done about it, but that's the only criticism. Good, attractive, well done app.

I have to open and leave the Garmin Connect app running in order to view widget on my Fenix 5x. I may be doing something wrong but I like this widget bedsides that.

Developer Reply
December 27, 2017, jim_m_58

Do you have an iPhone? if so, this is due to how the watches communicate with Garmin Connect Mobile. All CIQ watch apps that use the internet would be the same.

Once you have an account, you need to get your key on the same website. See my facebook page for screen shots with the steps: http://facebook.com/connectiqaz

Works great with patience and a learning curve. Weather Underground site is wonky regarding verifying your email after joining. Click the email verify link and chill out for 15 minutes before trying to get an API code. Cut/Paste API code into app box. Go back to WU website and let it have your location to search for closest data station. Copy/Paste the station code into the app. Entering my city name did not work for me, as my city has numerous stations. DO NOT TURN ON "Always Get Location" if you are inside and cannot connect link to GPS. Pressing start button in the widget switches me from main data screen to sunrise/sunset screen, and description "waning gibbons" moon, whatever the frack that is. :^) Hope this helps.

Got the API key and went into Garmin Connect, but when i click on your widget the only option I have is to "View in Store". I have a Garmin Fenix 3 and can't enter the API key...

This is a bug in garmin Connect Mobile on iOS, and impacts all CIQ apps. You can go to settings in Garmin Express (PC or mac), or on the phone, there is a thin white line where settings should be, and if you tap on it, you can get into settings

Does not automatically find location. GPS enabled watch and phone. You manually have to enter which WU station to use, might as well goodle search the weather if you have to search for local station to input in the widget. Older version worked fine.

Developer Reply
November 2, 2017, jim_m_58

Please use Contact developer for this. It will start GPS if needed, and if it's taking too long, first get a GPS lock in a native app, and the run the widget. Nothing has ched in this is some time. The "newer version" is something done in the background by the store to add more devices. (the Descent, etc)

You need to check with Weather Underground to see what's happening. I'm just a user there like everyone else.

The link to WU is in the description, and I have screen shots on my facebook page as to the steps after you create an account. https://www.facebook.com/connectiqaz Use "Contact Developer" if you still need assistance.

Fenix 5X user. Needs forecast. I'm forced to use 2 widgets. Also, when I fly to another city, the widget never even try to get new GPS location. Constantly have to turn out on and off, uninstall, to get out to realize Kim in another state.

Developer Reply
October 1, 2017, jim_m_58

Due to memory limits on older devices, forecast is not an option in this widget. (it ever was mentioned as a feature) When you go to a different city, press "menu" and you are given an option to get a new GPS location (I use the last location most times for speed - you get data faster.) With that, you can also see the data for where you are, or switch back to "home" as see the data for the folks at home. Please use Contact developer to ask about problems.

Great app; only weather app that's worth using. Works perfectly in U.K. Many thanks.
