Weather App

Is there any way to switch the weather app for AccuWeather.com to Celsius? I have it so it  shows my location (Saskatoon Sask) but wants to show it in Fahrenheit.

I have mine in Celsius. Swipe down from the top bezel and you will see a gear icon on the left, tap that, you will see a C and F slider, choose C. Use the + icon beside it to add more weather locations. Swipe down again from the top bezel to hide the menu.

You are welcome! You'll get used to the gestures on the PlayBook. I mean most times, the top bezel slide is pretty standard, it's the one I try first when I get an app without decent instructions.

 

The other one to learn is the diagonal swipe from the bottom bezel towards the left bezel (think half of a V shape but flatter). That one usually works to get you back a screen in Android applications. In fact, a pop-up screen will usually come up to show you how to do that.

 

Left and right swipes from the left and right bezels will let you switch and  multi-task between open applications.

 

That weather application is a good one and I am sure you'll enjoy it. Bye for now.
