Problem w/WeatherChannel App

I've been satisfied with the WeatherChannel App, but last week attempted to upgrade since a new version is available.


Since that attempt, I end up in a "loading" mode each time I try to use that app.  I deleted the app, but it's still apparently on my BB.  When I view it in MyWorld - where it still shows it as "installed" - I can not get the menu to appear that would permit me to select uninstall (I have no problems viewing the menu on other apps).  If I click to view the app at that point, it puts me in "loading" mode, and the app never opens up for use.


Need some help resolving, as I really would like to use this app (I've installed WeatherBug in the meantime, but prefer WeatherChannel).

Re: Problem w/WeatherChannel App

Well, looks like I resolved this on my own.  For those of you experiencing this or similar problems: I connected my BB to the website, checked for updates, and while installing the most recent update, I had WeatherChannel removed. 


I was then able to successfully (and wirelessly) reinstall the WeatherChannel app (from the archives).


Looks like I'm back in business -- although it took several hours to resolve.
