    Lightbulb Weather app (broken)

    The Weather APP seems to be 'broken', currently (15/9/12). However, The Weather Network is available, for FREE, from Store & certainly serves the purpose as well as anything.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    My weather app seems to be working properly. I had to go check because normally I only go to Modern for a couple of games.

    I dunno... mine, still, says Page Failed to Load [Try Again]

    Anyway, the alternative remains valid... another weather thing people can use.

    It's confirmed. Having put this elsewhere, as well, replies are showing mine is not an isolated experience; others are encountering the same scenario. IF, this happens for you, as stated, there is another "weather" @ Store called "The Weather Network"... established, web based & FREE.

    Cheers,

    Yes, well, seems to be 'broken' for many but, not everyone. Bit strange but, true.

    Cheers,
