I enabled the "Say time before alarm" and "say weather before alarm" features on Alarm Clock Plus, but when alarm activates the wrong temperature is being said. Not by a few degrees, but by 20 or more. For example, the temperature is 30 C, and I hear "It is 2 C"! I did not have this problem with the free version.

I have Galaxy S2 and it seems that the temperature is read from Samsung's built in "News and Weather" app. I tried changing my location in "News and Weather" thinking that the data for my location may be corrupted, but it did not fix the issue. No matter which location I choose, it says the wrong temperature.

How can I fix this so that the correct temperature will be used? I'd really hate to rate this alarm app badly as it's really good except for this irritating bug.

Is it always off in the same direction -- i.e. always says a lower temperature? Could it have to do with units, e.g. using °F instead of °C, or even °R? – Izzy Aug 8 '12 at 21:01
@Izzy unfortunately the issue is not with the Farads and Celsius – AnDroDroo Aug 22 '12 at 18:32
Maybe it's getting wrong data from its provider. I have two devices with AlarmDroid running, and noticed they give different temperatures for the same location even -- though not that far different. – Izzy Aug 22 '12 at 22:59
