Settings gone

Nice update... but where are the settings? As my iPad is in English - previously one had the choice of what language you wanted for the text weather report (not available in English). I had it set to French. Now, that settings page is gone, and the text is in German only. :-(

Edit: several revised versions have been issued, but still no fix for this problem. Looks like the just do not care about anyone else but the German-speaking part of Switzerland

Response to developer: thanks, finally got it to work. The response took a long time though. And it's really not obvious where this setting is or how to access it.

Developer Response ,

You can change the language of text products by long-pressing the weather report tile and then tapping the settings icon.

zu überladen

Bisher fand ich die App mit ihren Informationen inkl. der Benutzerfreundlichkeit sehr gelungen. Die Version 3.0 macht dies für mich zunichte und zu keinem besseren Nutzererlebnis. Wirkt für mich zu überladen.

Unübersichtlich und kaum personalisierbar

Ich war ein grosser Fan der alten App und habe diese mehrfach täglich genutzt. Leider wurde nun nach der normalen Meteoswiss (Desktop-)Website auch noch die App völlig unübersichtlich gestaltet. In der neuen Version werden zu viele Informationen zwingend dargestellt, die ich nicht benötige. Kacheln können nicht ausgeblendet werden. Ausserdem ist keine Anpassung der Kachelgrösse mehr möglich. Die neue Version gefällt mir leider überhaupt nicht. Die alte Version kann zwar auch nach dem Update genutzt werden, aber immer mit dem störenden Banner oben auf dem Screen, das auf die neue Version verweist. Es wäre schön, wenn man dies ausblenden könnte.
