The new Jolla Weather app does currently only support the Foreca weather service and therefore many minor cities in my area like Hyllinge, Karrebæk and Karrebæksminde is not available.

With other weather service providers like yr.no, dmi.dk, Yahoo Weather and weather.com these cities are easily found, so I suggest you either make Foreca improve their database or make it possible to choose between different weather services.

02/05/2017 - Still no improvement and this question is 2 yrs old.

Also the UK Met Office provide forecasts for a large number of places, too. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/datapoint

Might be UK only, but it would be nice to have the facility to add them if you have a registration.

It would be really nice to get more detailed locations, for example the weather in Helsinki varies a great deal depending on your location

Still waiting for this to happen. The OP is 2 years old and my nearest weather location is set to 3 miles away and as we all know, it can be sunny one side of the road and raining the other, so 3 miles away is of little use to anyone. Disappointing springs to mind.

Hmmm. My experience is as following: Most weather-services and apps are overing more locations to choose, but in practice often they use just the same "weather station from the area". So it often is more like a convenience thing.

It would be a good addition if they add the GPS location as a default location to the app. This way it shows the weather forecast where you are without the nerd to add or change the location all the time. All competitor OS-es have this standard.

I wrote an email to Foreca see my question and answer below.

Thank you for your interest. We provide the weather information for Jolla, but Jolla is in charge of the app itself and presenting the data to customers. In this case Jolla's customer support is able to help you best. If you have any weather information -related question, we'll be happy to assist you.

Best regards, Joanna, Foreca


Hello I have an Jolla phone and I like to use as much native apps as possible. My problem is that I just get a city 30 km far away from my hometown. In a browser and on your site I can find my hometown. May you help the sailors of jolla to solve this issue. Thank you very much and best regards.
