Flip Clock Screensaver Weather US Only? Refund Me Please

Postby markrosswilson » Tue Jan 06, 2015 2:29 am

The Flip Clock Screensaver isn't accepting UK locations. Neither post codes or locations are accepted.
Entering 'London' gives only one option - 'London, West Virginia and 'Glasgow' gives one option - 'Glasgow, Montana'.
That's ridiculous.
Valid UK post codes are not accepted either with or without a space.
You should have stated up-front that this only works in the US and not the other 99% of the world.
I'd like a refund.

It should definitely be working with UK post codes. Can you give me an example of a post code that's not working for you?

An example was G20 9TA

Typed in Paris for fun.
Unsurprisingly, it comes up Paris, Texas. Without the option to select the other Paris.
Good film though

Yes, the service expects a post code, but tries to match based on name if a matching post code isn't found. Unfortunately, at this point, I don't have a way of returning more than the first matching name. If you enter "Paris, France" it should give you the one you're looking for.

That returns "Abbey Road Ward, England" for me when I test it. Sounds like maybe it's failing on the first lookup for some reason. I'll need to dig a little deeper to see why that is... thanks for the heads up!
