Started app, added another location using "Find by location" (Zagreb/Gric), selected the forecast for Hamburg, touched the (x) mark to the right.

Observed: nothing happens

Expected: Hamburg deleted from list of locations, leaving only Zagreb/Gric

Repeatability: 5/5

Please clarify: do you get a toast saying "Favorites are deleted." after pressing (x) ?

This might be caused by the (x) icon being quite small and on the very edge. On some devices, it might be difficult to target it, perhaps your screen does not reconize the touch correctly.

  1. When you do not get this toast, it means the app does not get the touch-event.
    (=> I need to make the icon larger and put a right margin in.)

  2. If you get the toast and entries do not get deleted, it is a different bug.
    (=> I need to search further.)

Just for clarification: the visible entry is always kept, and all others get removed.

E.g., a list saying

  • HAMBURG
  • ZAGREB/GRIC
  • BERLIN

will result in:

  • HAMBURG

After pressing (x).

I think I stumbled upon myself as well while ago. It's just a bit of an unexpected behaviour. Initially, I also had the idea that the (x) removes the location that is displayed, as I saw the list like "bookmarks". I add locations that I need from time to time to access them easily. (@Starfish you may remember our discussion that I also assumed that all such "stored" locations get updated.) From this point of view the current behaviour is a bit unexpected.

The answer is the "X" deletes all entries except the current one.

Reason for the current behaviour is:

  • privacy (quickly delete hints to past travel points)
  • performance (deleting the visible entry would need to invalidate all visible forecast data and to jump to the "next" location, triggering a new data poll)
  • the above will completely break user experience when you do so with no data connection available :-)

It might not be expected behaviour , but it works well.

Will not change it at this point. :-)

A way to address the initial issue would be to "star" the real bookmarks, IOW mark entries that should be kept upon "delete others".
