  1. new widgets for larger phones and phablets

    New widgets for larger phones and phablets. I would love to see 5x2 and 5x3 widget options for the larger handsets that are now available. Also on the weather app I would like air pollution and pollen levels added to the weather app, this would be handy for people with hay fever and asthma. Please vote if you agree.

      • Today forecasting at 1 hour intervals

        Would it be possible to have an option for the Today weather to be displayed at 1 hour intervals? This would be helpful when trying to snatch some outdoor activity before the next rain shower.

        This option to extend also to the widget. Our screens are getting bigger now and can accommodate more information so there is less need for the cramped layout of yesteryear.

        • Is there anyway of changing the units? eg C to F

          Ability to change units would be useful to an old fart like me!

            • separate faster dynamic refresh for weather alerts

              There should be a separate refresh timer for weather alerts that has 5,10, or 15 minute intervals as weather alerts need higher refresh rates. Although people should not rely on the app for life safety, it may save a life if refresh rates were optionally faster or dynamically lowered when storm conditions are forecasted for that time.

                  • Show where the precipitation is snow.

                    In your maps view have an option to show where the precipitation is snow. Similar to what you see on the BBC weather map.

                    • Please put in an option to show the 5 days weather already fully expanded rather than having to click the fiddly plus buttons

                      Because the am/pm summary is meaningless so it always has to be expanded anyway. Great app by the way!

                        As it's a great app currently, but if a smartwatch could be integrated it would be amazing!

                        • Add jet stream position and atlantic pressure chart.

                          I find the north atlantic pressure chart on the met office website interesting and useful, especially the iso thermal lines that indicate snow fall temperatures. Also, the high altitude winds and jet stream chart would get aviation users interested and helps to get a sense of current weather predictability.

                            • Display location on Five Days page

                              My phone sometimes gets confused about where I am, which means that when I load up the Five Days screen I have to switch to the Current or Textual screen to make sure I'm looking at the forecast for the right location. Could you also display the location on the Five Days page instead?

                                When you open the app, if the current area is observing snow, the background graphic is a miserable dark rain! Come on. ... let's make it pretty! Otherwise utterly great app. Comment on widget not showing right temps when day Max is also below zero is correct. Cheers. ..

                                  Met Office data is very reliable but it seems there are various versions of this data. www.yr.no uses different Met Office data (as used in AIX Weather) and includes towns (and weather data) which can't be found in your app's data source. The addition of an alternative data source (as perhaps a premium feature) woud make this app the most comprehensive and best one for the UK market!

                                    • adjust the data updating to synchronise when a data connection is available.

                                      To preserve battery life I only connect to the internet a couple of times a day. Shortly after I connect, I see a little sync icon appear, and all the apps that need to connect (email, calendar, Facebook etc.) go and grab the data they need. But not UK Weather! It has its own updating timetable which hardly ever coincides with my Wifi / 3G being enabled. So unless I do it manually, I'm permanently being told that my data is out of date.

                                          As a user, I want a large widget to take advantage of the space available on my Nexus 7 tablet (and other tablets!), so that I can view more information on the widget without the need to enter the main app
