is totally useless. Don't know where the forecast comes from but it is way off...not even close to other forecasts. I fact, the current conditions are usually way off.

Not for me, it's OK.

Think I just figured it out. When I click on it after not having used it for a day or so, it gives old/incorrect data. If I close it and re-open, the data is good. Something is still wrong though because I should not have to manually refresh the data this way.

Maybe it wasn't designed to be a real time app. Maybe Microsoft will release that feature in an update.

No, it is real time. Just noticed the same happens with the Financial app. Just opened it and got Fri results. Closed/re-opened and it had today's numbers. A real PITA. There is probably a setting somewhere I need to change but who knows what and where?

Doing some more research and see where Bing apps are prone to various bugs exactly like and similar to my experience. MS offers a few suggested fixes which I am going to try. Will let you know if anything works.

Just got a tip from another forum which helps a lot. After opening the app (weather or financial), click on the home button and screen refreshes. Much easier than closing/reopening.
