    My-Cast weather app not working

    Toller

      Just tonight, the My-Cast weather app has stopped working. Both the data display and the map were stuck on about 4 PM. Now (11PM) the data display seems to be working but the map is still stuck at about 4 PM.

       

      In looking on the web, it's the My-Cast Lite application. It came on the notebooks free. (3 HD+, 1 Tab E, and 1 Tab A) Is it necessary to download/install again?

       

      While I can get the app again, how do I load/install it because it will download to a PC. How do I get it to the Nooks?

          Toller, that app is available on the Google Play Store, which all your stated Nooks have access to. Install it to your Nook from the Play Store.

           

          However, reinstalling it won't fix the current map problem. I just tried on my Nook S2 and got the same problem.  Also, the map is stuck on my other Android devices, so my guess the problem is with the My-Cast server.

            OK The fact that it shows up elsewhere (yours) means that the problem isn't the weather service servers too. I wish there was a place to call. 

            Thanks. I guess we'll have to wait. ... trying for patiently.

              Well. I've found a bit more about the problem!

               

              I logged onto a site about My-Cast and found that people everywhere are having this problem. The interesting thing is that the first reports were last fall and there's been a steady trickle since then. All of the complaints start with words to the effect ... I used the My-Cast weather app daily until yesterday. In short, there's been a rolling failure of the app. You and I may be the last ones, or nearly last, to suffer this.

               

              I got looking on Google Play for a weather app Plan B. I don't usually go there since I don't use any of my devices for apps with very few exceptions. Then I hit a problem. I've signed onto Play with the Tab 4 and don't remember the password. Is it the same the the password for Google generally? Or if not, how does one deal with a forgotten password?

                  I have an acceptable replacement weather app that comes with 5 or 6 different widgets one can use on the home screen..

                   

                  1Weather:Widget Forecast Radar - Android Apps on Google Play

                   

                  this has everything from forecasts, to lunar phases, to a real interactive radar map.

                   

                  it does unfortunately come with ads, but you can remove those with a one time fee of $1.99.

                   

                  I put this on my phone AND SGT4N after installing nova launcher and discovering I couldnt access the built in weather widgets while using nova launcher.

                   

                  it WORKS. reliably. every time.
