    Great, I just updated yesterday but hadn't checked it. It doesn't work for me either. You gotta love when they update something and break it!!! I mean, do they even test this stuff before they put it out ??

    Then their server must be down. Anybody checked on your computer?

    Edit: Well the regular website works, so it must be the connection to the app that is down. Oh, well.

    Glad it wasn't just me. I pulled up WeatherBug in the meantime. Gotta have my fallback apps! haha

    Damn, at least it's not just me. I just upgraded to max this morning and I was pissed it wasn't working. At least this is good to know.

    I have TWC Max and I believe it worked for a short while after the update, so I think their servers are down. The free version also doesn't work. If you check the app on iTunes, there are hundreds of 1-star reviews now being posted.

    lol, I was one of those who posted a 1 for the reviews. I just checked it a minute ago and it worked. Hopefully all is resolved.

    The weather is pretty much always the same here, but the one day I decided to use it (today) it wasn't working. Still not working at this point.

    Same. We couldn't get it yesterday either on both of our iPhones. Try Fizz weather!

    One of the best apps now became pretty much useless.

    What's stange is the Weather app works, and I thought that was tied to the Weather Channel.

    From all the weather apps i've tested, the only weather app that works best is [app]WeatherEye[/app] and it's free.

    Yeah, thanks, it is working again, although very slow to first come up.
