I sent an email about the "slight" to providers of their free data on the weekend, and no reply yet.

folks, a little help please. I have a Samsung tablet S2 with McAfee installed. When I go to install any version that is not on the Play store site it tells me that installs from an unknown site is blocked. Any suggestions as to what I do to turn off this notification. I have tried in settings and also in McAfee and do not see any selection to allow this to install.  Thanks for the assistance to an old man that just likes the weather and a weather station.

Jimi,

Thanks that did the trick. Now I just have to find a version that will allow me to get rid of the ads. We used to be able to get rid of them by allowing WU to get our data for the weather stations that we own. I guess that IBM has gotten greedy!

for me and my Samsung tablet version 5.10.1 works fine and I do not have any ads. I wish that IBM would honor the agreement set up by the folks that originally developed the application. We give them data they give us no ads. Simple!!! but then IBM is not known for being easy to work with on anything.

An option I'd like to mention is to use the WS View app.
+1 on WS View, thanks for the pointer @galfert.  For others wanting to try it, grab "WS View" from the Play store, Menu -> Manage Wunderground, add your station ID and you're done. 

This is also a great replacement for Meteoino, which hasn't worked with any new Android versions.
I like the graphics on that app and it updates every 18 seconds. I just wish there was a GPS option that would change the station accordingly.
Nice graphics, however, no maps,  radar, forecast, Web cam on one compact or widget  page rules it out for me.

It seems they have switched to using the standard Google Play Store subscription system for removing ads. Although I still had 4 months left on my old WU subscription I went ahead and signed up in the v6 app. Now the WU subscription is handled by Google along with my other app subscriptions on Android and the "Your Membership" section in the "Member Settings" on the WU web site now shows the new expiration date in 2021.

 :sad: However, I do not like the way data is presented in the newest versions of WU. I will continue to use that older version that I posted above and that one I like. The idea that a new version must be published to keep your application as relevant is crap. Until the user base asks for more features then the developers should generate a new product and leave the old one alive. That way we (the users) have a choice to upgrade or not and we are not forced into the mold that the developers think we need to be using.  End of Rant!!!

Still no sign of improvement in the new app.
Still no widget.
And still no reply to any of my support queries - including why you have to pay twice for the new app to remove ads.
IBM have really borked WU.

this was probably more to do with your install/phone.
Never stopped working here.

Mine stopped as well, the other day " Can't update your location" it's done this before and started working again. Hopefully it's just another WU temporary glitch.  :roll:

Well, no answer on where that came from....
Still not updated though.

While there is now a widget on the new app - it just shows the weather now! I have a window for that...
I liked the old widget's 3 day view.

Mine also stopped working so I tried the new 6.5 version but without the ability to pick my station there is no point using this app over any other.
So the next most important thing to me was a nice widget so I went with 1Weather and I'm OK till I can find a way to get my data back on a widget.

That's from "inside" IBM.  Everything that depended on the old data feed is now dead (again).
