Nice job Jody, thank you! Looks like it works fine.

1) None of my software reports home or anything like that so I have no real idea of sWeather's install base. However, based on the email feedback I get, it is one of my most popular apps. So, based on that, and based on their verbiage, I will assume the number of API calls the free tier they offer is not nearly enough to support sWeather.It certainly does, and no worries at all. Thank you for creating the program, I had been looking for something when WeatherWatcher went pay-only and your program fit the bill perfectly. Here's hoping it all pans out with Yahoo's API access. Until then I always have my phone app.
2) Changing the API would require a lot of code refactoring, which I don't have time for. If I did do something like that, I'd probably just write an sWeather 2.0 as time allowed and require each user to get their own API key from OpenWeatherMap to get around the API call limit.
Of course, another option is to pay for API access but most of the ones I've looked at are pretty pricey and the donations I receive for my software wouldn't even begin to cover such an expense. That said, every donation is, of course, appreciated. =]
Personally, I don't use all of the apps I've written, but I did write sWeather for myself, and use it daily, so I'm eager to get it working again. I hope all this helps to explain my perspective on everything.-skwire (January 08, 2019, 09:38 PM)
