ios and Android apps reporting garbage (again)
« on: May 12, 2019, 06:19:39 AM »
This issue first appeared about a month or so ago (just after the first updates) but then appeared to get fixed.
However, today the issues have resurface on both ios and android apps.

You'll see in my screenshots below.

click the map in the app and choose my station from the app . . .
everything in this screen is ok

if I then click "view forecast" the location is correct but the data is coming from some unknown weather station named "Oamaru airport"
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
interestingly, there is no "station info" button for this station.

Clicking the station shows my location on the map but with an airport icon over it.

This corrected itself previously. Others have reported installing an earlier version of the WU app fixed it for them. I tried this (5.8.x) but got exactly the same incorrect results.

Checked on another android phone with a fresh install of the app and got exactly the same incorrect results.
Checked on ios and got the same wrong data again - so it is certainly garbage data coming out of WU.

Also, there is another station within a few hundred metres of mine.
This also displays an incorrect name - but for this station the "station info" button is present.
If I click that I get this screen . . .

Hi
I do not know if it's related but ...
I use Weather Station app on my Android to see the data from my personal station but, since 9 days ago, no more data is uploaded. Nor from my station or from any other.
Any help is welcome.
Thanks
Regards

I don't think it is related as my station is reporting fine and appears correct using the web interface - just in android and ios apps reporting station is incorrect.

hmmmm . . .  seems to be fixed now.
Had to clear the cache from the app and load again but all looking good (for now)
