Grand,

No problems with the update. On my iPhone X, I turned on Gateway Alert (after fumbling around to see where the setting was). Then I turned off my phone's WiFi connection & voila "Gateway Has Changed" appeared with the new gateway address. Clicked on "Use new gateway" & all was good. Reversed the process by turning on WiFi & again all was good with the same messages and options. Very nice!

Oh yeah, all is good on my early Christmas present... Apple Watch 4. ThU32:-)

Have a great Holidays & Merry Christmas🎄

Dear Grand, Blick, Paul, and WeatherCat iOS power users,

Someone recently posted a 2-star review for WeatherCatRCP for iOS at the Apple App Store.

. . . .

Sorry to hear that.  :(  I really don't think people realize how much harm they do when they act like cry-babies instead of trying to understand what the problem.  Worst still, is the general lack of civility in public communications.

Second, if you feel that WeatherCatRCP deserves better than a 2-star review, please take a moment to add your rating and review.

I don't know who it is but it's probably Edouard.

Hahaha. Just kidding, my Orinda Classic Car Center friend.

No it wasn't me, but I would like to give Apple's App store some grief over how they insist you review an App.  Obviously, you can't allow a Mac to review an iOS App - why not?  ??? 

Okay, no big deal since I have an iPad with a nice keyboard.  No, you can't use an iPad because WeatherCatRCP doesn't run on an iPad - you can't write a review on another device than what the App runs on?  [goofy]

Fortunately, I do have a Bluetooth keyboard for my iPhone so I just posted a detailed and thoughtful review that should discourage crybabies from trying out WeatherCatRCP without first understanding what they are doing.

I'm more than a little upset at the way Apple is literally contributing to the sort of thoughtless review that Grand has been saddled with.  Apple should be trying to encourage everyone to be thoughtful in the review process.  Allowing people to write with a keyboard instead of texting shorthand would go a long way toward encouraging thoughtful and detailed reviews.

Oh well, . . . . . Edouard

What's new

Adds "Gateway change Alert" Option. If ON, you will be alerted when the Gateway changes. The Gateway changes when you change Wi-Fi networks or move between Wi-Fi and Cellular. The default setting is OFF.

Details

When awakened, the App will detect if the Gateway has changed and provide an alert.
The alert gives you the option of continuing with the new Gateway or changing the server.
This alert is an option on the Options screen. The default is OFF.

The Gateway changes when your device switches to a different Wi-Fi network,
switches from Wi-Fi to a cellular network, switches from a cellular network to Wi-Fi,
looses the network connection (cellular or Wi-Fi) entirely, or re-connects after loosing a connection.

This option is helpful if your WeatherCat 3 server is on the "Local network" (Wi-Fi),
but not accessible from the Internet. It lets you deal with those instances when you
are away from your local network and inadvertently open WeatherCatRCP, causing
WeatherCatRCP to spend what seems like an eternity searching for the non-existent "Local network".
Instead, you can select "Change Server" in the Gateway Changed Alert and either
switch to an Internet connection or quit the App.

Tip

If you get the message "Unable to verify server", you should try again by doing the following:
Go to WeatherCatRCP Settings, tap Manage WeatherCat Servers, tap the radio button for the desired server.
Tapping any server radio button that's already selected will re-connect you to the server.

Other changes in v1.1

Show an error message (instead of error number) when there is no network connection.
Show the Gateway IP address on the Settings Manage WeatherCat Servers screen.
Update with iOS 12 and watchOS 5 libraries (Xcode 10.0).
Fixed a bug that may cause a crash the first time you attempt to connect to Local and it does not connect.
Update app icon for the 44mm Apple Watch Series 4.
Adjust the Options view so that the switch description can be seen on an iPhone SE and iPhone 5.
Adjust navigation bar buttons to display the longer German localized title.
Change the "Not a WeatherCat RCP server" message to the more accurate "Unable to verify server" message.

Questions? Problems? Please post them here at the forum.

General Discussion / Re: Web Hosting company recommendation

That's an interesting article. I've been with HostDime in Florida since they started in 2003. It is now a large, privately owned company that has been growing slowly but steadily over the years.

The shared hosting program that I am on is no longer available to new customers, as they've mostly moved to larger business accounts. But the legacy accounts are still well supported with minimal price increases over the past 15 years.

I just sent my own review, which differs from the previous reviewer by a total of 3 stars.

WeatherCat iOS Clients / WeatherCatRCP Review at Apple App Store

Dear WeatherCatRCP Fans,

Someone recently posted a 2-star review for WeatherCatRCP for iOS at the Apple App Store. They had trouble connecting: "Canít get it to work. It opens the first time, but canít connect to my stuff only the test station setup, then crashes. Then it closes upon open after that until deleted and redownloaded. Rinse, repeat. - kp3_&_mp3"

First, if you know kp3_&_mp3, please ask them to post their problem on this forum so that I can help them. Frequently, the problem lies with their system setup, not with WeatherCatRCP.

Second, if you feel that WeatherCatRCP deserves better than a 2-star review, please take a moment to add your rating and review. Here is the link to WeatherCatRCP in the Apple App Store.
