DOES THE APP WORK ANYWHERE?
The weather app will work anywhere your provider has a data feed available. This means you can take the app with you on your bike, in a car, a boat, and on vacation and still get the weather forecast. Simply turn on location services and it will deliver forecast and alerts no matter where you travel.

You can also edit the names of these locations to somethine like "Grandma's House" or "Sunset Beach Trip" by clicking the "Edit" button.
HOW DO I GET THE APP TO FOLLOW ME WHEREVER I GO?

CAN I CHOOSE WHICH WARNINGS/WATCHES I RECEIVE?
YES! Your weather app will receive all weather alerts issued by the National Weather Service office (no matter where you travel).

DO YOU HAVE AN APP AVAILABLE FOR BLACKBERRY USERS?
At this time, our vendor has not designed an app for Blackberry mobile phones. However, Blackberry (RIM) has changed the operatiing system on some of the phones and tablets to allow users to download the ANDROID version of the weather app. This won't work in every case. See your phone provider for details.
