Hey PWS owerrs!

The new Wunderstation app from Weather Underground is now in the App Store! Available for ipads, this app is great to use as a weather station console,. All your PWS data right at your fingertips!

WunderStation allows you to customize how you view and analyze weather data. Add your station, and any station, from our network to your list of stations to compare current and historical conditions. Drag, drop, add or delete content widgets from the dashboard to view the data that's most important to you. What's really neat is you can expand each individual widget and toggle between an animated infographic view or a graph view to view historical data. It is all finger-friendly, so play with the graphics to go back in time to better analyze the data. In addition to the standard weather measurements, WunderStation can also chart your additional sensors (UV, solar radiation, etc). No need for a weather station console, when you have the console data available on an ipad!





More information avaialble here:
wunderground.com/wunderstation

Play around with it and send me your feedback. What do you love about it? What improvements would you like to see?

Have fun!
Kari

I have a Davis Vantage Pro2+ connected to WU via meteobridge. When I view the live data on Meteobridge, the rainfall rate corresponds to the console reading. Ex: today, the max reading was 3 in/hr for both. However, when the rainfall rate is displayed on my WU graph, it displays the rainfall amt. for that event, not the actual rate. Any ideas on what is happening?
The weather station is KCOLITTL120.


I would like to help figure out the problem here. Is the data correct on your history page on Weather Underground? http://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-stat ion/dashboard?ID=KCOLITTL120
Also, please note that the rainfall history does not update until "Today" is over.

Thanks,
Kari

Why would the Wunderstation app say my PWS is not reporting, but the data is clearly visible on the website?

EDIT: I notice all the stations in my area are not reporting so seems to be a general problem


If all the stations are not reporting in your app, your wifi signal may have been lost. I have seen this problem before and just reconnected to the wifi.

I have a Zephyr Instruments PWS 1000 Td I am using easy weather application my station address is KCA South 55. On my easy Weather information box it shows failure at the bottom of the page so I assume the data is not uploading. It has been over 24 hours and I checked the clocks and the connections not sure what to do next. I try clicking on the support tag to send a e-mail and it does nothing. I could use a little help with this problem

Thanks John


Hi,

I see your station is KCASOUTH58, not KCASOUTH55. And it looks like it is showing up just fine on the map and on our apps now. Are you still having this problem?

Kari,

I am running a Davis Vantage Vue. I can see from my Meteobridge console that indoor data is being passed to WU. I cannot, however, find a widget in the WunderStation app that will show indoor data in the app.

Is this feature fully implemented?

Michael


Hi,
I see your indoor data is coming into our database. Are you sure you are logged into your Weather Underground account on the WunderStation App? You should be able to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the widgets to add another widget. (You also have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the "add widgets" window to find the indoor data.

Thanks,
Kari

I love the app! I am however a little confused on the timing of the rainfall data, and when it actually displays in the widget. When it is raining see incremental increases in the "Today's Accumulation", as well as the "rate". When I drill down in the widget to see accumulation for: Today, Yesterday, Past 7 days, Past 30 days etc. the data does not match. A couple of day after the rainfall event it displays correctly. I know that it is reporting as it should because I can see it in the browser. Can you explain to me, or tell me where to find an explanation of how rainfall data is handled in the app?


Those do not update until "Today" is over, then it adds today's data into the history.

Hi Kari

I can see my PWS using my browser at http://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-stati on/mypws but cannot find it using the wunderground Android app. In fact many personal weather stations do not appear to be visible using the app. Do I need to do anything to make my pws visible from the app?

Station ID: IAUCKLAN269

Thanks

The Android app does not yet allow for you to search for your weather station by typing in your station ID. We are working on adding that feature so it functions similarly to our other apps. You should be able to find your station by looking at your location on the map with your android device.

Don't have an iPad, but do have an iPhone6 Plus. Maybe you could let it run on both. But I do understand that maybe it's just to much screen for the iPhone.

Just got my station registered and am thrilled at what Weather Underground can do! I live in Alaska where official stations can be few and far in between. I am an Android user and am hopeful that the Wunderstation will become available on that platform for several reasons, the most important being access to my indoor temp sensor for checking on my house for when I am in Hawaii. If there were a way to access this indoor data from a web browser that would be just as good. Is there a way, or will it be possible down the road? This feature is important enough where I may buy a used ipad just for this purpose. That said I would gladly pay for the Android version of the app as I have no desire to haul along another gadget when I travel.

I too am disappointed that this is not out for Android... I dumped Apple and IOS because of their "walled garden" marketing philosophy, and don't want to be dragged around by their outrageous restrictions on use of their devices. Android is outselling Apple worldwide, and I would hope that Weather Underground supports Android first, and then when resources permit, IOS.
