Not sure if it needs the public_html added (needed as that is where the files reside).

Update - using / at end (missed in instructions) worked - now I have imperial units etc.
Glad to hear it's working. :D

Small update to the app. There is now a back button in the settings menu.

Fine, it works well.

It would be nice to put a title on it, as part of settings,
e.g. weather station name (and not from another weather source as some have me as Zlatina, Greece (as opposed to Bulgaria) and others have the name of the village from 70 years ago (not sure how they managed that, lol)).

Thanks for the comments/suggestion. Where would you see the title of the weather station being used? Would it change something like "Trends" or "Now" to "Title - Trends" and "Now - Trends"?

Ok I see what you mean. I'll think of a way to show a title in future updates. There has been some request for personalization of the app and I will look into adding these features in the near future.

For everyone who has tried the app and likes it please leave a rating for it on the Google Play Store. If you are having problems please post here to give me a chance to get everything working.

Just gave this a try. Nice. worked out of the box first try. Gave it a rating.

Nice how it doesn't over emphasise wind like most weather apps... Would be nice to have DewPt front an center since around here that is important to go with the temp.

Would be interested if you plan on offering skins (different themes).

Ref:
Tried this on a Galaxy Note 3 using 4.4.2 KitKat.

Thanks for the comments and rating. I'm looking to make certain parts of the "Now" page customizable. That way the user can add what ever they find most important on the main page. I'm also looking into allowing the user to change the color theme of the app.

It works well for me on a Motorola XT910 running Android 4.0.4, it only needs Solar and UV graphs, and could probably do without "Is Fay Light" and "Numberofcurrent.....perStrings" :)
I'd definitely pay to remove the annoying ads telling me I "may have 2 viruses" when that is an option.

Funny, didn't see any ads but then I have an ad blocker on my Note 3. I will pay for any App I use, but don't do ads.

Great little App Theo
Agreed, happy to pay a few $ to get rid of the ads.
i know google have some funny rules about how much and how many etc before oyu get any revenue, but the guys at OziExplorer did their own .apk download to avoid the whole google play store thing
