Hello there. I too have a problem with the ZIP code as when I do type it, it doesn't say Hialeah Gardens, FL where I live. Also, it seems like it wants to take forever to load the content via mobile or iPad but I'm glad there's an option outside Fire TV to check it out since I only have a Roku.

I'm hopeful to see the project expand and eventually make it to Roku so I can have my own Weatherscan-like channel on my TV set.

Roly,

Thanks for reaching out.  You're right about it taking some time to load the content to mobile devices.  She's a pretty good size web app by the time it loads all of the assets.  It gets better as you start to have some cache'd content though.

I'm dismayed to hear about your ZIP code.  I thought we were past all of those issues.  Do you mind sharing your ZIP code with me?  I'd like to check it out.

Thanks!
Scott

This is great!  I have actually been looking for more options lately and this works perfectly.   Is there an ability yet to be able to customize the scroll and still have warnings/watches come through?  Just curious.  Wish there was a Roku app like this, 'local now' is the only option that is not even close to this.  Guess I will be investing in a Fire TV Stick!

I second this to customize our own scrolls on it.

I love the project but I have two issues. On iPhone landscape, the page zooms in and I can’t resize it. The other issue is that audio gets layered and I can’t understand what is what. For example, there is a warning or a “stay tuned” message over the title card audio such as “your local radar”. This has been on the site. Thank you.

is this IvuWeather glitch going on nationwide. It's only the video that's messed up. The audio is fine
