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

An excellent app especially when you can your save family's weather around the world. I am logged in but do not have the ability to add the indoor app.

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.

Hi Wunderground team,

Thanx for te wonderfull app. Beautiful!!!
You have recently added the unit indoor temp and humidity.
Mij PWS works with Weatherdisplay.
Everything works great except.....how do I add the indoor temp and hum?
I have been looking on your website but can not find anything about it.
The option to add a unit I can find but there is no inside or inside hum. icon in the screen.
Can you please help me?

Thanks in advanced

Hi Leo,

You need to be logged into your Weather Underground account in the WunderStation app to be able to view your indoor data. Actually, it looks like your station is not currently online. Your station last updated on Dec 26th. Once you get your station back online and log into your account, you should be able to add the indoor temperature module.
Thanks,
Kari

I love this app for the iPad, I wish the android one would more closely resemble this. The android app IMO kind of well.. sucks.. not as configurable IMO than the iPad application and the tiles.

Kari,

I love the app, and so do the family members and other who use my PWS data. One comment.

I note that the app reports civil twilight times under "sky conditions" rather than actual sunrise and sunset times. If I load the wunderground.com web page for the PWS, the page reports actual sunrise and sunset times.

What would be great is to be able to adjust the "sky conditions" widget to report any of actual rise and set, civil twilight or nautical twilight.

Hi Kari
Thanks for the help, just one other thing I have noticed, why on my pressure gauge widget screen, does the tendency indicator not move from steady as my weather station does alter its reading. No big deal but just wondering if you had any ideas. Once again, absolutely great professional app. Well done.
Cheers Jeff


The pressure change at your station has been too small to register a change in the pressure tendency field.

Hope that helps!

Absolutely great app, love it. Just wondering how I remove and shift the layout on my screen and I see there are other widgets on one of the demos, how do I access them. Cheers Jeff.


Glad you love it! You can move the modules around by pressing and holding on any widget. Once it turns grey, you can drag it around and the other widgets will move and allow room for it. Also, if you scroll to the bottom of the widgets, you will see a blank widget with a + (pus sign). If you tap on this blank widget, a list of your options will pop up.
Thanks,
Kari

Hi, some minor problems show up for me, in Australia, Metric settings.
No option to select hPa for pressure.
Temperature Block - Dewpoint shows -13 should be 8
Temperature Today Block - Graph shows temps as negative.
Daily Forecast Block - Temps show as negative.
Pressure Block - Main scale is "inHg" minor scale is "hPa"
Great looking app, all information on one screen.


Hi there,

hPa is equal to mb. So you can use the mb setting to see the pressure readings in hPa.
I pulled up your station to troubleshoot the negative numbers, but I'm not seeing negative temperatures anywhere. Are you still seeing the bad data? If so, what date is the bad data appearing on?

Thanks,
Kari

Nicely done! Except for radar, this may replace my main weather apps. It's attractive, yet powerful in that it offers detailed views as well as pretty graphs/dials.

Two immediate suggestions:

1) Launching for iPad is understandable given the increased screen size. I would love an iPhone version as well, single column. I monitor my PWS more often from there, but the iPad version is great!
2) I'd enjoy seeing connected webcams.
