 +====== Guide on how to use Snowstorm ======
 +
 +===== Using widgets =====
 +
 +You add widgets to the home screen by pressing on an empty area on the home screen till a widget menu appears. Scroll down in the widget till you find the Snowstorm entries. Select the size that you want to install.
 +
 +A newly installed widget isn't configured, so you need to tap on it, and then configure it. The default settings are normally ok, so just press save.
 +
 +The widget will then try to download a forecast for the current location. Downloading can take about a minute, or longer if the Yr servers are heavily loaded.
 +
 +The widget will keep trying to download a forecast periodically if the Yr servers are down, or if there are any problems in getting your current location.
 +
 +You can see a detailed forecast if you tap on an installed widget.
 +
 +You can see a log of what the widget is doing by tapping on the widget, pressing menu in the forecast view, and then selecting log.
 +
 +You can always change the widget settings by tapping on a widget, pressing menu, and then select settings.
 +
 +===== Using the application =====
 +
 +Start Snowstorm, and select the search or recent tab. The search tab will let you search for a location, and you can then view a forecast for the selected location (if Yr has one). 
 +The recent tab will display a list of locations that you have retreived forecasts for, and you can also see when you last downloaded a forecast.
