What is this app good for?
The initial idea was to revive old tablets, that are still working, but became too slow or too insecure because of the old Android version. Usually these tablets are still good enough to run WhatWeather.
How long can I use the app for free?
As long as you wish. It offers a basic set of features and can be upgraded with in-app purchases.
What is WhatWeather Pro?
WhatWeather Pro has become obsolete since WhatWeather provides the same features as an in-app purchase. You no longer have to install a separate app.
Do I have to purchase upgrades for each device separately?
No. Your in-app purchases are eligible for all devices assigned to your Google account.
Do you offer 24/7 support?
We give our best to check e-mails daily and to answer your requests.
Why is feature XY missing?
To contact us is a better idea, than to write a 1-star review. Give us a chance to put it on the list or to explain, why we don’t want to implement it.
Why don’t you support Android versions earlier than 4.0?
We use libraries, that have their own Android version requirements. We have to follow them. Moreover Google demands usage of modern versions of its libraries, so we periodically have to update them. If the new library version one day requires i.e. 4.4, we will have to set the minimum version to 4.4 too.
Why doesn’t WhatWeather have a widget?
WhatWeather isn’t yet another weather app. It’s supposed to be a weather station. Its main screen should always remain on, so you don’t need a widget.
There is much empty space on the screen, why don’t you fill it up with bigger font or additional data?
There is one layout, that has to fit all the different aspect ratios, time and date formats, languages and optional data, that you can turn on and off. Our reference is an old Google Nexus 7. We are improving the layout continuously, but it will possibly never fit your particular device perfectly.
WhatWeather asks for the GPS permission. What do you use it for?
The weather data providers need your position. WhatWeather tries to locate your device automatically. If you reject the permission or turn off the device’s location service, you have to enter the location manually. There are no personal data besides the coordinates, language and app version submitted to the backend server. There is also no background position tracking, because your weather data are updated only if the display is on and the app is in the foreground.
