My weather app quit working. I restored my phone. It worked for a very short while and quit again. How do I fix it or remove it

    Likely a problem with Yahoo as they provide the weather data for that app.  It can't be deleted.  A couple things to try...


    Shut down and restart the app...

    - From any Home Screen, double tap the home button to bring up the Recents List

    - Tap and hold any icon until they wiggle

    - Press the red to delete the offending app from this list.

    - Press the home button twice when done.

    - Restart the app


    Try a Reset... press the home and sleep/lock buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.

    I put Weather into a folder with all the other unneaded unremovable apps.  And got a free app TWC from "The Weather Channel".
