Inaccurate data

Set up functionality good. You can change colors but not much else. I tested Houston against our tv weather and this was very different (and wrong)

Fixed Location

Unlike the user created widgets, the WP widget weather location is fixed on Bondi Beach NSW. You can allow users to search but that is confusing for visitors.
