FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHERE ARE ALL THE WEATHER DETAILS?
Just select the hour or day that you want to see the details for and they'll be displayed for you. Tap the same hour/day and they'll disappear again.
HOW DO I GET THE MOST OUT OF ICON WEATHER?
I recommend that you personalise your app the way you want it. To do this, click on the Settings icon > Personalise, and then change hat you need.
A good place to start is the 'Home Screen' section. I kept the app simple when designing it but if you want to see more, you can opt to see the 60-Minute*, 48-Hour or 8-Day forecast displayed when you open the app. You can also decide whether or not you want to show the first index (now for 48-Hour or today for 8-Day). This saves you from having to navigate the home screen to see the information that is important to you.
WILL THERE BE AN An\NDROID VERSION?
Hmmmm, I'm not sure. It's a lot of work and I'm currently focusing on updating the iOS version.
HOW DO I SETUP NOTIFICATIONS AND/OR ALERTS?
Notifications and alerts are currently not a feature available to Icon Weather. I'd love to add as many features as possible to ensure that Icon Weather stays apart of your daily weather routine but I'm not sure when i'll be able to start focusing on notifications and alerts. If this is something you'd love to see, please let me know at one of the social media outlets below so i can figure out how important this should be.
I WANT TO CHECK HISTORICAL FORECASTS. CAN I DO THIS?
A time machine feature is being worked on now so that you can look up historical forecasts. I'm hoping to have a minor update with some new features in the 2nd quarter of 2020 and time machine will certainly be among the first new features i put in the app. Stay tuned!
CAN I SEE POLLEN, AIR QUALITY AND ALERGY DATA?
Not yet....but i'd love to implement new features and more data. Please contact me if this should be prioritised.
WHAT CAN BE CUSTOMISED IN ICON WEATHER?
Customisation is important to me so i tried to make everything customisable. A few features which you can change are:
All weather units (temperature, wind speed, rainfall, snowfall, distances and pressure)
Change your home screen to display default, 60-Minute, 48-Hour or 8-Day forecasts when opening.
Choose between feels-like or actual temperatures in the Today Widget, summary section
Change the forecast summary custom data point to be any of 10 data points including precipitation intensity, precipitation probability, dew point, humidity and more!
Re-order the data points in the detailed forecast section for the 48-Hour, 8-Day and Today Widget.
Select between 12-Hour and 24-Hour times.
WILL OTHER LANGUAGES BE SUPPORTED IN THE FUTURE?
I hope so! I've made it easy to implement new languages in the future but translations take time and cost money. let me know if you'd like to see your language supported by Icon Weather and maybe we can work together to make it happen.
WHERE IS THE RADAR?
Icon Weather does not have a weather radar at the moment. This will hopefully come in the future and at the moment I'm currently testing various weather providers so that i can provide everyone with a great service.
CAN I PAIR ICON WEATHER WITH MY APPLE WATCH?
At the moment no. There is a long list of features that are currently being worked on and a watchOS version of Icon Weather is not one of them. I would love to release Icon Weather on Apple Watch but this may not be until late 2020. Let me know if this is worth prioritising and maybe i can make it happen in the first half of 2020.
HOW DO I GET RID OF THE ADS?
The ads are here to stay for now but there may be a paid subscription possible in the future as new features are added. I felt that at the moment, Icon Weather should be free for everyone but as new features are added (weather radar, watchOS, etc), it may be necessary to move to a subscription based model like most other weather apps out there. Icon Weather will always have a free tier though so that it can be enjoyed by everyone.
