    Been using 4cast for my weather app for the last few years. Last week it stopped loading the current info??? I deleted it and reinstalled it and I still get no info. It uses weather.yahoo.com for its info. Did yahoo change something? Anyone else use it and are you experiencing problems?

    Best regards,
    Glenn

    I think someone mentioned that this app was going dormant. In fact, I think it lasted longer than the original announcement said. Something to do with the weather info provider that 4cast passed along.

    I know that kMeteo (http://forum.brighthand.com/applica...os/284403-kmeteo-having-trouble-updating.html) was having this issue, but hadn't heard anything about 4cast. I wonder if they use the same weather info provider.

    kMeteo is still ticking along; sometimes it takes several (or many) taps to update, depending on time of day. I just looked at 4cast on my TXs and saw that I haven't updated the data since Jan 16, 2006 (going by the day of the week that Jan. 16 fell on; 4cast doesn't show the year) *eek* and I haven't the foggiest reason why not. It's a lovely app and looks beautiful on the TX screen.

    Here's the answer. Shimon isn't supporting it for Palm anymore. :( Dev/member here at BH.

    Developer's main site.
