@Yves70 That's too bad. Each time I start up I have to zoom in thousands of miles. I guess whoever set the defaults lives in a larger country or uses some regional approach to looking at weather. Alas, there is no "one size fits all."

RE: How to change the default startup zoom level in the app?
RE: App has no way to set Home screen Start-up zoom
OK. (But perhaps do like the Flightradar24 app, remembering the previous zoom through thick and thin (all manner of restarts, powerdowns, etc.)
RE: App has no way to set Home screen Start-up zoom
@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.

How to change the default startup zoom level in the Android app?
I found how to change the default startup location, but not the zoom level.
RE: Windy is showing me a webcam
Ah! I get it. That's what happens when there is only one webcam in my vicinity.
RE: Keyboard shortcuts
On Twitter, "?" brings up a list of keyboard shortcuts. Saves a lot of bytes,
RE: Alert menu wind direction should also include arrows
In fact I now notice the original "pizza pie" in the image indeed has eight slices, apparently trying to express the same thing
(that a slice pointing north is called "S"(outh), etc.)
RE: Windy 3D mode is back!
It may be 3D if one wants to look at the whole world.
But I was just wanting to look at just e.g., Taiwan,
and I saw the 3D button and expected something like Google Earth where I can
tilt the view etc.
So for smaller areas it is just still 2D.
RE: How to set up a Windy Alert
@idefix37 It turns out the "suspend alert for some time" button is only available if one clicks on the link sent to one's mailbox. Otherwise for me it the pencil is just a "rename" link, like the last pencil in your image, the one that you didn't put a red arrow next to.
Android app lacks instructions
I just installed the Android app, and my very first impression is I can't find the instructions.

Can't keep myself in center of screen when zoomed
Here we find an arrow in the upper right that will put us on the map as a blue dot. So good so far.
However we would also like to zoom in. Therefore, as there are no plus and minus buttons, we must use the unpinch gesture.
Alas, there is no way to keep her blue dot exactly in the center of the screen anymore:
Sure, you might say, "Well just log in and then you can save your favorites or whatever." But I'm talking about the case where people haven't logged in yet.
You might also say well just install the app.. but I'm not talking about that case.
You might also say well just tap that arrow that you tapped in the first place again. However it is now not available anymore, as you see.
Dimmed menu items look disabled
Here we see the first few menu items are dimmed. Users will assume that there's no point in tapping them because they might be disabled.
RE: Add way to remove a favorite via the favorites screen
@jidanni ah, one must tap the favorite and then it becomes full screen, and then typing again on the ❤ will finally reveal a way to remove it.
Add way to remove a favorite via the favorites screen
Pressing on one of the hearts should allow the user to remove a favorite if they wish.
Else it is very hard for the user to figure out how to remove a favorite.
RE: Weather-radar screen updates resemble inchworm (but that's OK!)
@korina I am not talking about the three animals.
I left the middle default animal selected.
I am simply talking about the way the clouds etc. move across the screen. They don't move as one clump. The left part moves then stops. then the right part moves the same distance. Sort of like an inchworm.
Weather-radar screen updates resemble inchworm (but that's OK!)
Ah ha, I finally figured it out!
I figured out what animal the special way the blobs move across the
screen after one presses the playback arrow button on e.g.,
The animal is: an inchworm!
Note I am not criticizing windy.com in any way.
I am just saying how the blobs move,
AAA---BBB then, ---AAABBB then, ---AAA---BBB
resembles an inchworm.
(I'm sure the algorithm has its reasons and advantages, especially for
people on slow networks like me.)
Airgram colors hard to read
Tap "display as Airgram.". The hour colors are hard to read. Please just use simple black numerals. Thank you.
RE: X map closer button
I am saying normally we just want to see the map, and no day to day predictions.
But sometimes we only want to see the predictions, but no map (which would be a waste of data traffic.)
So there should be a way...
X map closer button
In this situation, there is only an X for the bottom half of the screen. I want there to be an X also for the top half of the screen. In other words sometimes we just want to see the day-to-day predictions and not cause the map to waste data as we move the days forward..
Want to turn off all highway cameras
I wish there was a setting, that would ensure that all highway cameras are turned off, no matter which page of the windy app I'm looking at. Because I'm really much more concerned with the weather, and don't want to waste any of my precious data allotment bandwidth with highway cameras. Thank you.
(Yes, even thumbnails.)
