Is there any way to tie this app into a site other than weatherunderground? Something like visualcrossing (or any other site) via an API? WU will not give out free APIs without a personal weather station, which I don't have.

It only supports WU right now, but you don't need an API key for BIT's weather functionality to work.

Thanks Mike

When I installed it, it said I had to put either a location in (the only way to get a location was to install the API) or put "none". When I put none and tried to update it said "skipping weather" (or something to that effect - I'm not in front of the screen at the moment). I'll go back and re-read the instructions. Thanks again.

Put in the Station ID that you want to use and keep the API key blank.

Thank you! I assumed the station ID had to be a pull down slection and not freeform typing. I'll give it a shot
