It's stuck on the wrong location. I uninstalled and reinstalled, no dice! On line says to go to and clear and reset. Still zilch! SOLUTION * Open in CHROME. Input the desired location in the box with location icon. Then go and open the app. Allow access to location while using the app. Worked. Sounds nuts but as long as it works!

App is fine. Not the prettiest but it does its job for the most part. The location function is TERRIBLE though. Most of the time gps location doesn't work. When you open the app it either defaults to the last place you did manage to get the GPS location function to work OR it defaults to Dublin. Is it really that hard to get it to default to a chosen location? Honestly, location is such a basic aspect of a weather app its incredibly surprising its so poor in this one. Hence only 2 stars.

It doesn't seem possible to delete entries from the list of places (as displayed by clicking the magnifying glass top right). As a result whenever I start the app, it shows me the weather for somewhere I visited several months ago, which I have no need for any more. Even uninstalling & reinstalling doesn't clear the list! I thought I might be able to edit it in Settings...but it seems there are no Settings! Come on Met Éireann, all that should be basic functionality.
