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.

I find this the most accurate weather information for Irish Midlands. I find I can get a good picture of the weather for today in about 30 seconds, using the graphic daily forecast. Irish weather is very changeable and this is the most accurate app for weekly planning. When I use the app over the phone network it's not as reliable. The Met Eireann website (PC) gives an excellent picture of my daily weather . Inland lakes forecast is accurate.

Good but theres a big problem, the colour scheme on the forecast makes it almost impossible to see key information like temperature and time on the graphs. This is also the case on the animated forecast which is a cool feature if you could see the time it applies to. Please change your colour font to something we can see.
