    fantastic the new graphic!
    disable the splash screen please for faster startup and add wind units (knots, kph)

    Hi!
    Nice app but it is really annoying that the “Go Weather EX startscreen” appears everytime you klick on the weather! It would be much nicer and faster if the weather opens directly without the annoying start-screen.

    My suggestion is to make the app as fast as possible for a good user expirience.

    I really like the design and the new animation looks great! What I don´t like is the grey color of the city name and the temperature.

    This app is getting better and better! Keep on rocking! :)

        Hi ,

        my name is Igor. I have translated go launcher into Italian language.
        A lot of people on Marklet play is asking for Italian translation of Go Weather.
        Please let me know if you need help or support.

        Regards

    Cool, no more crashes in the latest version and geolocation finally works! Only in the today preview, the background image/video is missing.

    • admin says:

      Hello, please provide your phone model, system information and GO the Launcher EX version number, so that we can follow up, thank you

      • Schoern says:

        I have a htc Desire with unofficial CM9 from COS running and the latest Go Launcher. I never had problems with videos/animations on this rom.

        • admin says:

          Hello, the latest version of the GO weather EX yesterday published in the Google Market, an updated version, is to solve this problem, thank you

    Please, please add Environment Canada as a weather source for Canadians.

    Neither Google or Accuweather are accurate in Atlantic Canada, and are in fact almost always extremely incorrect for both forecasts and current conditions.

    Well good app…but miss km/h for the wind speed :-(

  6. Mattz says:

    It is a very good widget and i would like to get fixed/added a couple of things

    As said above unity of wind speed (km/h)
    The possibility to edit the name of the current city, because some city names are wrong
    And disable the splash screen
    I would like to see this in other languages such as Spanish

    Sorry my bad english… xD
    Thanks.

    • admin says:

      Hello, Thank you for your careful recommendations, we will make further optimization, and ask whether the name of the city can provide editing error, so that we can promptly corrected? thank you

  7. Traycer says:

    I agree with many of the points above.

    1) Please allow us to select the weather provider (AccuWeather, The Weather Network, The Weather Channel, Weather Underground, Environment Canada, etc.) I am in Toronto, and the above five sites all agree the current temperature is around 21°C. But GO Weather EX thinks it is 28°C!

    2) I don’t want to see the splash screen when viewing the full weather conditions. I just want it to appear quickly (a quick, smooth fade is sufficient) when I need it, and not wait for the splash screen to disappear.

    3) “Temperature unit” should be replaced with “Units of measure” now, with a choice of metric or imperial. That way I can see my reports in °C, km/h, kPa, etc.

    4) I would like the ability to select which app is launched when I tap on the widget’s clock. Right now, it simply runs whatever the built-in clock app is. In my case, it is the very plain ICS alarm clock. I would like Alarm Clock Plus to be launched instead.

    Great job so far, and I love all your other apps!

    • admin says:

      Hello, thanks for your suggestion, ask the last one needs is to customize the weather alarm clock application, instead of using the system alarm clock program.?

      And please provide a phone model and system information, so we can better follow-up questions, thank you

      • Traycer says:

        I am on a Samsung Galaxy Note (North American model, SGH-I717D), running the unofficial CM9 build for it.

        For suggestion #4, I would like to be able to launch a different alarm clock app when I tap on the GO Weather widget’s clock. Of course, it could be _any_ app, but I want to use Alarm Clock Plus. ;-) As a test, I froze the standard CM9 clock app using Titanium Backup. Now when I tap on the widget’s clock, it simply says “Cannot find alarm in your system”. It would be nice to have a setting that lets me choose which .apk to run. Thanks!

    • sp says:

      I agree with the feature to have multiple weather sources selectable. I would also like to be able to choose between geocoder sources. Look at Fancy Widgets, that’s the widget that has both the geolocation, geocoded name and weather for that location most accurate, due to specific combination of weather and geocoder services.

      Apart from that this and a few other GO apps are awesome, especially as they are free!

      • seren says:

        Does it actually update its location during each refresh based on current GPS/location services at all?? It doesn’t seem to be doing this, that makes this widget pretty useless for a MOBILE device.

  8. Mitch says:

    I don’t get how the app is an improvement. The original GO Weather is far more feature rich. I’m sure it’ll get better, but this is pretty basic and boring in its current state.

  9. bankai says:

    amazing, I just love the new style of weather, the automatic update of the weather seems to not work properly. Otherwise the animations are excellent, for France the weather works well, while depent weather service. Another beautiful application of dev.

    • admin says:

      Hello, please provide the phone model and system information, in order to follow up your question, thank you

  10. Porobu says:

    The new widget is amazing, but the text is too big for LDPI screens, and you cant see the humidity text.

  11. Michelasso says:

    Please add an option to select which alarm application to use when touching it. I am using Alarm Xtreme free which is much more advanced than the standard Android and it would be nice to have it tied to the GO Weather widget

  12. Zack says:

    Add: percent chance of weather in daily and weekly forecast, follow it to follow me via gps, and radar maps.

    This app is awesome otherwise. I’m very excited to follow/assist in its refinement!

  13. Karen says:

    Weather is not updating to current conditions. It is several hours old even after manual updates. I have the same issues with both go weather and the go weather widget. I have no problems with the correct city. Animations are fine. Right now temp is 83 but go weather shows 76.

    No RESIZE ICON, please !!!.

  15. Rusty says:

    hello, Wow very good upgrade of go weather widget.
    however metric readings need to be added.
    also need the option of weather servers as the weather forecasts can be very incorrect or not update enough.
    cheers,

  16. Voxel says:

    In the widget (4×1 black), the weather icon (sun, moon, clouds…) is bigger and placed lower than previous version so weather condition text overlaps it.

  17. Schoerb says:

    I saw, that the new version just has been released to the market. For my Desire with ICS/CM9 weather animations still not work. Anyone else with this problem?

  18. Martin says:

    Is it possible to download the previous version? I liked that better and I regret updating :)

  19. coy says:

    Not sure if already exists but I travel often both by car and plane and don’t want to have to add every city I visit to see the weather. So, with gps on is there way to see current location weather?

    • admin says:

      Hello, Thank you for your valuable suggestions, we will record your needs and to make further optimization

  20. sffjunkie says:

    When swiping through the cities on the widget it would be nice to have an option to display the time for the timezone of the location shown.

  21. sffjunkie says:

    Also for me the widget displays some text in what looks to be Korean just below the date.

    • admin says:

      Hello, I’m sorry I did not understand what you mean, what are the specific what the problem is.?

  22. just_do_it_best says:

    无法在其他桌面上使用桌面插件,有点遗憾啊。

    • admin says:

      您好,对于GO天气EX程序的独立应用功能我们已有相关的记录,后续会考虑其可行性,感谢您的使用和支持

  23. Declan says:

    升级到2.0之后我所在城市Hamilton, Waikato, New Zealand可以更新温度等数据,但是天气图标永远是N/A,希望能尽快修复这个bug。

    • admin says:

      您好,请问是一直持续无法更新还是过一会就可以更新了呢.?

      • Declan says:

        可以更新温度,风向什么的数据,但是天气图标始终显示为”N/A”,所以在晚上显示的也是白天的背景动画。

  24. 言逸城 says:

    我觉得。。。背景和字体颜色不符。。。

    例如:阵雨的时候,背景灰色,字体黑色+白色轮廓,难道不会看不清吗?

    为什么不给每一种天气配单独的字体颜色呢?

    还有,在Android 2.3系统上面,点击24小时天气和一周天气曲线自动弹出的动画有点卡,不流畅。

      顺便再说一下,为什么网站总是被墙?非要逼我挂VPN么???!!!每次被墙之后,都懒得打开了!!!

  25. Carlos says:

    Greetings,Vastly improved.Could I suggest you put the days rather than the dates as an option.Probably more practical and a bit more detailed forecast if that’s possible like the GoDev weather feature with the scroll down.I am currently running both.
    Great work.

    • admin says:

      Hello, I ask the hope that the 24 hours forecast the daily weather forecast is accurate to the day.?

      • Carlos says:

        The 24 hour forecast spiked to 26C the other day which is not accurate temp considering this is being taken from our local station.I will watch it over the next few days.The Daily forecast of the GoDev also from the same station has been okay and well detailed. I hope this info helps.

        cheers
        Carlos

        • Carlos says:

          The 24 hour forecast is accurate.Could you please add text details of weather info. Many thanks

  26. Noah says:

    Hey guys, I know this is in the wrong section, but is there any way to get the ThemesFactory program? I downloaded the 2.4 jnlp but when I open it and it tries to download the application, it says:

    Unable to load resource: http://61.145.124.93/soft/3GHeart/themesfactory.jar.

    Would anyone be able to just send me the jar file or upload a link to it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • admin says:

      Hello, I’m sorry I did not understand what you mean, what is refers to the theme Tool?

  27. Scoot says:

    Hi. Is very nice but is little bit laggy when you use it. The weather information transitions is very laggy.

    Thanks. And please try to fix it.

    • admin says:

      Hello, please provide your phone model and system information, so that we have made to optimize, thank you

    I am having a problem with the weather app. It used to tell me I was in Taylorsville, Ut. But now is tells me that I am in Midvale, Ut. My zip code is either 84118 or 84129. there are 2 for Taylorsville. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. Shayne Oleen

    • admin says:

      Hello, Do you mean positioning before the program can not automatically update your current position and still shows?

      • Shayne Oleen says:

        It does not matter when I turn it on, It still reads Midvale, Ut. Taylorsville, Ut is not even in the list of cities to choose from. It used to be, but it is not there now. And I can restart the phone I can do a battery pull ect. It comes back as Midvale, Ut. as mu current location.
