Hello, and thanks for approving my account here at Accuweather, my name is Micky, and I write over on Nokiausers.net. Its good to be here.!

I recently purchased a new Nokia device, the N97, which came with a preinstalled Accuweather widget, but during early testing of the device, with very buggy early firmware, I lost the Accuweather Widget that came preinstalled on the device. I thought, no problem, I will get it from the Ovi Store, Nokia's version of Apple's App Store, but sadly I could not find the Accuweather Widget, or application anywhere in the store. In fact, I cannot find this Widget anywhere on the www either. I can find the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music Accuweather application, but this differs to the N97 widget as on the N97, the Widget has homescreen support.

So this leads me to the following question.

Can you tell me where I can get a replacement Accuweather widget for my Nokia N97 please?

Also if you could let me know directly why the widget has been removed from the Ovi Store too this would be great, as I do plan on writing a detailed review on the N97 for Nokiausers, and of course will be mentioning the preinstalled applications, such as the Accuweather Widget, with Homescreen support.

Thanks for taking the time to read my first post here on your forums, and I wish to thank you once again for approving my account here.

Kind regards

Micky

Thank you for approving me to join this forum, and thanks to Micky who brought up this problem. I have exactly the same problem with my N97 and I know that lots of other people do as well. These are few examples:

http://forum.vodafone.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=29181
http://dailymobile.se/forum/index.php?topic=8328.0
http://discussions.nokia.co.uk/discussions...hread.id=142558
http://allaboutsymbian.com/forum/showthread.php?p=426283
and many many many more .....

it would be really appreciated if you could provide us with the widget again, I even don't mind paying for it and become a premium member if it works well, since that widget was my favourite one in the buggy N97 phone.

Thanks a lot

it is the 5800 one but i added home screen to it. the home screen doesn't work like perfect thou. i need more time to work on the home screen part to match it with the size of the box there. u can try it yourself, it is nothing comparable to the one that comes with N97, but i am working on it to make it look better. working most of these days, the first day i am free i will try to make it look better

================= 0.0.1 Beta Version (July 10, 2009) =======================
I got tired of waiting for Nokia and Accuweather to provide us with N97 AccuWeather
I am a Hardware Engineer, so i am sure if there was a Software Engineer or Programmer , he could write better code
I did this in only few hours and it should have still 100s bugs
I just modified the program, so still Accuweather and Nokia are the owners of the program
I just did this for myself, but since there are many people looking for it, i decided to put it on the NET as well
The Terms and Condition link in accuweather widget wasn't working, so i didn't know if i can use the owner program to modify it or not
The home screen is not working 100%, and it is not fit to the limited space, need to work more on it, hopefully tomorrow after work , too late now.
if you are good at programming and u think u can finish it and make it look nice, please go ahead since i don't have lots of free time
If you decide to install it , be aware i am not responsible for any damage it can cause your phone


================= 0.0.2 Beta Version (July 13, 2009) =======================
Most of the bugs should be fixed
Any bug please send me an e-mail

Known bug: If you can't see the right screen inside the box, one 90 degree rotation of the phone should fix the problem, after that if
u rotate it back, you still should be able to see the screen properly
