Problem with iPhone app - 01/12/2010 11:56


I have the Weatherzone app on my iPhone 4 and whenever I run the app I get a message box that keeps popping up saying "Network Error. There was an error fetching data. Please try again in a few minutes."

This error just keeps popping up. It happens while I am out and while I am at home using our wifi network. Because the error keeps popping up I can't even get in to the setttings of the app. I am using the latest version of the app, I upgraded it last week when I was notified of the update.

All other apps work ok, and I had the same problem when I was running the old iOS version (I was on 4.1 and updated to 4.2 yesterday).

I love weatherzone, and it would be so much more convenient if I could get the app working, rather than using a browser to go to the webpage.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Kate, I use my WZ app on my iphone 4 all the time, without any troubles. I was having similar troubles with other apps tho (like facebook). To fix them, I had to delete the app and install them again. But I dont know how that works with the WZ one, because you have to pay for it. Would you have to pay to download it again?

Hi Kymm

The app store recognises that you have already purchased it and allows it to be redownloaded for free.

I just deleted the WZ app and redownloaded/installed, it has let me get a bit further, I have put in my postcode and it says Greenacre (Updating) at the top, but then the error starts appearing again and no data ends up being displayed.

I am too getting this error it says "updating" and then network error, I then have to close the app. Very frustrating as I have the paid version too.

Oh and iOS4.2.1 here as well.
Oh also happens on wifi (Internode ADSL2+) & 3g (vodafone)

Hi Teddy

Yep, mine is the paid version too. Glad to know it is not just me! My internet is iinet ADSL 2+, so doesn't seem like it is isp related.

I have also tried with 3G turned on & off, but same problem.
