Live Weather Status Update

Live Weather for Paperland hasn't gone as smoothly as I would have liked.

[UPDATE] Global live weather is now in public beta test:

A few weeks ago I released the update to users in the United States, which uses the NOAA public feed for weather.  There are some improvements I'd like to make for those users, but I'm happy with how that's going.

After much more investigation, I settled on a weather provider for non-US users, and a few days after I released that update, they shut me down due to the high volume of traffic.  This cutoff happened much quicker than anticipated, and to make matters worse, I have been unable to get a hold of anyone from the company to fix the issue.

I've decided to search for another global weather provider instead of dealing with this poor technical and customer support.  I intend to have an updated version of Live Weather for non-US users in a week or two.  I appreciate your patience and support, and hope you all will keep using Paperland until you have a chance to try out this feature as well.

As always, you can contact me at if you have any more questions.
