Location in Weather App?

Hi

In the weather app, the location is hardcode by longitude and lantitude?

How would I go about using the users current location, or letting the user enter a place name?

Any tutorials, or guidance?

Hi Andre,

I had a go at this a couple of years ago - have a look through my Github repo for this functionality implementation. There will definitely be other/better ways of doing this, but that code should give you a starting point. Whatever I used may well be out of date now, I really don't know. But the app is still working on my phone just fine!

Steve.
