    According to the Met Office, the app has been taken down temporarily while they make changes to the Weather Warnings aspect of the application. Once they have Apple approval, the app should be back up the store. Thanks, Jon

  • I tried to use the app to book a hotel but ended up freezing my phone. it seems to utilise a lot of resources. Ended up using my old useful site to book the hotel anyway as could no wait at www.HotelBooked.net
