How will they look?

Our Weather Apps have been created to work perfectly in both; full-screen on a landscape display or within a landscape (16:9) zone of a portrait or landscape multi-zone layout.

How do I set them up?

These Apps are location-aware so that you can either set them to use an address you manually set in the App preferences or within the Player's address. This will allow the same single App to be published to multiple players and they will show the correct weather for their specified location. The following video shows you how to update the site and contact details in the Player Manager module:
