    Hi guys!

    Lovin' my i4, jailbroke it a few weeks ago and have been exploring in Cydia..

    Came across Weathericon, thought it would be neat to have the weather in my Status bar.. So i installed it, works great..

    The one little thing that irks me though, is that the weather in the status bar is always off by 1 degree (i live in ontario, canada).

    I checked the settings of the Weathericon, and i have it set to use iPhone Weather as the source, with Wind Chill disabled. So I figured that the iPhone app weather and the status bar should be equal, but they're not.

    I've been using the app for 3 days now, and i've yet to catch the status bar and iphone app equal. Right now, for example, the iphone app shows 13 degrees in my city, and the status icon shows 12 degrees.

    Ps, i only have my city configured in the iPhone weather app, so its definitely not a multi-city error.

    Anyone with similar experiences or solutions?

    .... I don't even know what to say. I guess to some people one degree makes a huge difference.

    I have the same problem as well. I'm almost 100% sure it has to so with how the program rounds the temperature when it's in celcius mode. If you go to farenheit mode the numbers match.

    I'm assuming it's just reading the farenheit value and using a formula to convert it rather than read the celcius data from the weather app
