Amazon pulls their Fire TV Weather app from the Appstore

About a week ago, Amazon released a Weather app for the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The app was simple and elegant, but now the app is nowhere to be found. The app was a bit of a surprise when it arrived since it was the first time Amazon released a first party app for the Fire TV platform. Perhaps we’ll see the app return as an added feature to the Fire TV home screen in a future software update.

    Amazon should also consider changing the apps layout. I do not need to know weather info for 5 areas. Just want info for my city like when entering the Weather Friend app.

      I’m with you in thinking it’s going to be integrated into the Fire TV experience.

      @mjbxx You can simply delete the other cities.

    It’s still showing up as available on mine under New Releases.

    I don’t care for it much however.

      I see it too but you can’t download it. The price section in the Overview says “Unavailable Pricing Unavailable”. I suspect that messaging was composed by the Office of Redundancy Office. ;)
