    Hey guys

    If I'm remembering correctly, the native weather app in was based on The Weather Channel. In we're back to Accuweather. Has anyone loaded the 810 weather bar on 1047?

    I believe the 810 Weather Channel version showed "chance of participation" in the hourly forecast (along with temp and forecast). Accuweather only shows "RealFeel" in the hourly forecast (along with temp and forecast). I find chance of participation way more useful than RealFeel, so I'd like to get back to the Weather Channel version.

    I don't mind grabbing the weather bar from 810, but thought I'd find out if I'm remembering the 810 version correctly, and if anyone has already tried this.

    Yeah I was wondering about this too... Maybe they haven't decided or the user is able to choose which provider they want?

    Looks like the weather app version in 1047 is, while the version number in 810 is However, the version from 810 is Accuweather, so I wasn't remembering correctly. Maybe it's 663 or 483. Trying that now.

    Yep. sys.weather- from OS is The Weather Channel, allows you to add cities, and has chance of precipitation in the hourly forecast. It's loaded and running, but the question is if it's really working.

    Current conditions are a little off and I'm getting "--%" for hourly chance of precipitation.

    You're right, the stock weather app is back to AccuWeather.com. The odd thing is that the data from the stock weather app is different than the AccuWeather app, even though they're both AccuWeather.

    Also, the stock weather app shows wind in "KPH," should be "km/h"

    Native Weather App in 810 vs. 1047...I think its different-img_00000002.jpg
