Here are a couple of tips to help you enjoy the HOU Weather app for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows 7:
Tip 1: Update your phone’s software first.
Be sure that you have recently connected your phone to your computer to get the latest updated operating software for your phone. iPhone users, for example, won’t be allowed to download the HOU Weather iPhone app until they’ve updated their iPhone operating software, which is needed to take full advantage of the HOU Weather app features.
Tip 2: When it comes to smart phones, age matters.
Our new HOU Weather app is optimized for the latest smart phones and those to come. Likewise, there are many "flavors" of Android phones. The app works best on the newest phones. Owners of older Android phones may experience page freezing and loading issues.
Tip 3: Still have questions or comments? Let us help!
Smart phones are getting smarter all the time, but there’s still lots to learn. Sometimes the problems are with the phone, and sometimes they are with the app. Either way, we are here to help. If you’re having a problem with the HOU Weather app, please let us know and we’ll do what we can to help.
