What to do before and after an uninstall + reinstall

Since reinstall seams to be more asked for now as part of debugging, I’m starting this thread to discuss how to streamlining it. (Please let me know if anything is missing or unclear!)

Before uninstall:
i)
Open “Settings”, and make note of your chosen setting for:
Under “Appearance” ,

  • “App theme”,
  • “Widget theme”,
  • "Widget text size,
  • “Map style”,
  • “Animation level”, and
  • “Fullscreen Mode”.

Under “Units”,

  • All units.

Under “Downloads”,

  • “Allow Mobile Data”
  • “Servers”.

Under “Advanced”,

  • “World View (Beta)”

ii)
In “Settings” under “Advanced”

  • tap at “Export”. Save the bacup file of your “PLACES” and “GRAPHICS” somewhere where you later can access it.

iii)
On the widget tap the small “3-dot-menue-button” in top right corner. Make note of:

  • Place,
  • Forecast model,
  • number of days,
  • #Graphs”.

After (uninstall +) reinstall:
1.)
Open "Settings"and

  • re-apply the settings from i).

2.)
In “Settings” under “Advanced”

  • tap at “Import”, and choose the file you exported earlier.

3.)

  • Delete the extra place that was created by default when you opened the app for the first time after re-installing it.

4.)
Re-allow Flowx to access GPS-location of device for your saved place in “Travel Mode” by:

  • In main app, tap “3-dot-menue-button” in top right corner and tap “Edit place”.
  • Tap “3-dot-menue-button” in top right corner and tap “Travel Mode” to toggle off, and then back on again.
  • In system pop-up dialog allow Flowx to access GPS-location.

5.)

  • Recreate the widget, and
  • re-apply the settings from iii).
  • If it fails to load, try to reboot the phone.
