Finally let me change station name... thank you

It’s great and I can get to my station data from anywhere. An old neighborhood name that was assigned by Weather Underground has never made any sense, it’s miles away, an old name which has never been associated with my historic location; my home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has been here for 100 years, so I have no idea how some other place miles away got assigned to it in the first place by WU. It will forever drive me insane until it gets removed; it would be great in a future PWS update if I could just choose to not show it. PWS Monitor did provide a recent update which allowed me to change the main “nickname” at the top of my station. Thank you PWS for letting me know it was Weather Underground who assigned the incorrect name!

Developer Response ,

I'm not sure how Weather Underground assigned those neighborhood names and they don't seem to have a mechanism in place to change them.
I could add an option to the app to show only your custom nickname instead of both nickname and assigned neighborhood name. Look for that in a future update.

GREAT station monitoring app!

As the owner of a PWS (and a NWS meteorologist), I have used/posted to/monitored the wunderground app for years. While that app offers more features (forecast, photos, etc.), I’ve been frustrated by how difficult it can be to use it to find the actual current and past data from an individual station on a mobile device (iPad) - which is where this app is FAR superior! My one request to the developer would be to allow for the option of showing the data from a station selected from the map WITHOUT having to first add it as a favorite.

What is there is 5-star quality

I needed an easy way to be able to check the graphs from a PWS station, or two. Well, this is it. Very clean-cut interface, easy to read and attractive. It is 5-star quality. Why am I only giving 4 stars? The big thing that is missing is a way to view the charts from other days, by tapping an arrow or entering a date. When Matt adds that, 5 stars all the way!

There was also a suggestion to show the current data from any site by long-tapping it without making it a Favorite. That is a great suggestion! Just a pop up of the current data would be perfect. For charts, it should be a favorite. But it’s really awesome to be able to select a pin and see the current data instantly.
