  • Location - This is displayed near the top of the application. It for display only.
  • Latitude, Longitude - Use your smart phone or other GPS enabled device to determine your current location. You can also use LatLong.net
  • Celsius - Displays temperatures as Celsius and wind speeds as kilometers per hour when checked
  • Api Key - Forecast.io generously allows access to their data for free. However, you’ll need to sign-up and get a API key. Don’t worry, they won’t spam you. It’s simply a mechanism to control access. Just click on the "”Get API Key”” link and follow the prompts.

ILoveFreeSoftware has a nice tutorial on how to setup Simply Weather.
