iPhone app crashes after making changes via website if you select "Weather flow PWS" for provider

I tried out the new web portal to manage my 3 pixies and their connected whisperers. I modified 2 of the 3 (if you're looking at my account, they're named "Potted Plants" and "Front Lawn") to use my Weather Flow PWS that I have in my backyard, since I have one and I noticed that this option does not exist in the iPhone app. Upon doing so, the iPhone app crashes every single time. I went back to the web portal and changed the weather provider back to the default "Netro Weather" and the iPhone app no longer crashes. If I changed it back to the Weather Flow PWS, it'll crash.


I presume it's crashing because the site offers this new choice for weather providers but this same choice hasn't yet been pushed out to your iPhone app yet and the app doesn't know what to do. I guess until the iPhone app gets updated I'll use the default provider, but this is a pretty annoying bug since I constantly get better results with my weather flow pws than any of the iPhone available options.

How can I tell if it skipped a day due to rain or excess moisture?

With the Pixie is there a way in app (and if so where) to see if it skipped a day because either the sensor reported that the soil moisture was above the threshold set or because the weather provider predicted enough rain to cancel it?

Change sensor zone?

I have a whisperer and a pixie configured in the same zone. My pixie is defective (the unit leaks water which wound up damaging the unit and battery and no longer works, replacement is in progress), so I want to delete it in preparation for my replacement. It says I need to remove the sensor first. Is there any way to just move the sensor (a Whisperer) to a different zone, or perhaps to just simply unlink the sensor from the Pixie, or do I actually have to delete the sensor from my account and then go through the process of re-adding it back to my wifi network and all that? The app makes it seem like I have to actually delete it then re-add it. Since my replacement unit won't be here for over a week I had desired to keep the sensor monitoring the soil in case I need to manually water it.
