Hey someone in Australia, can you tell me if the new BOM mobile app (Android) is pulling and displaying data at the moment??

I am trying to access it from China, and it says:

"There was a problem loading the weather
Your device is online but cannot fetch data from the Bureau at this time"

I wonder if there is some geo-restriction going on. Interesting.

Thanks in advance, coffee++

Thanks +Google Photos for helping me rediscover that Google is missing the point, left hand doesn't talk to right hand.

I got to here, now what?? No sharing option, Give me something to do with it, durrr.

If you need help, reach out ;)

Cool to find out that my Android development, design, rapid prototyping, and security/quality/best-practices consultation massively contributed to the success of the project I worked the last year on...and won that client an approx AUD$1 million award from Google!

Google Drive API integration last year found Google's API to be broken...
Google Play In-App Billing API integration this year, found Google's API to be broken...

Help me cite some teachings/discussions on why it's wise to not muddy an icon's meaning by using it frivolously for other things ~OR~ why it's ok.

It's pretty obvious that using, say, the Coca Cola logo to represent water isn't doing it (designing) right, right?

What about using the Material 'sharing' icon to represent 'submission' (like a form submit button) or 'posting' or 'uploading'? IMO that'd be a bit of a design crime. Keen to hear what others think though!
