App has no way to set Home screen Start-up zoom
In the app in Settings, we can change the Start-up location (which is where apparently tapping the house Icon will take one).
But we cannot change the Home screen/Start-up zoom!
@jidanni That is correct. It's not a bug.
OK. (But perhaps do like the Flightradar24 app, remembering the previous zoom through thick and thin (all manner of restarts, powerdowns, etc.)

@TomSlavkovsky Could there be a setting to change this? Mine starts showing almost whole east coast of US, and I have to spend several seconds zooming every time. Pretty annoying.
@jidanni @scandium We have been discussing it yesterday. The map starts in zoom 5, with the ECMWF model, and wind map to keep application fast. There are usually three requests regarding the start of the Windy app
weather model selection, and
map selection. Allowing adjusting these three components will create huge load on our servers. We will look into this and if we find some sustainable solution we will provide it into the app.
@TomSlavkovsky The user just has to adjust them by hand anyway after the app opens, so no savings. Or are you saying most users are happy looking at the defaults? If so they would also not try to set a preferred startup configuration either.
