For example, Foreca is providing water temperature and precipitation chance.
You can set Foreca as default weather source.
No matter which location you choose, Foreca data to be displayed.

- Weather settings moved from the menu to Settings.

- Forecast widget displays more days.

- Geo-location tracking is "on" by default.

- Americana: people can sit on benches.

1. I can no longer find the Weather selections for choice of weather station, such as a local airport versus a private weather station near my house.

When I click on "Settings", then "WEATHER", I can see only "Current weather" and "Weather forcast".

I had created a few local setups, each using a different weather station; these settings HAVE survived the update to 2.6.1, but I no longer can see which weather station I selected, nor am I able to change it.


2. Choosing the "best" weather station requires a lot of experimentation, so I think it was MORE convenient for WEATHER to be listed in the Menu, rather than buried among the other settings which are chosen once, then almost never changed.

So I would vote for returning the WEATHER choices to the Menu, to save a click.

Perhaps help new users by renaming "Settings" to "Infrequently-changed Settings".

Thanks for your continued efforts, Pasha. YoWindow is definitely my favorite Android program. It is both useful and FUN! My friends are impressed by the graphics. So am I!

Sorry, guys!

There were a couple of errors. We are going to fix them in the next build.

You can access your weather stations setup in Location Properties.
Just one more tap.
Open locations list, tap "three dots" button beside a location to open Location Properties.

We are going to add weather stations to Weather/Current Weather in the upcoming updates.

Thank you for the kind words, FuzzyHopper!
