The AccuWeather app for mobile phones functions in much the same way regardless of the model of Samsung phone you use. The app provides you with the weather and local news for locations you specify. By default, it sets your current location as your home location. You can reset the app to display a different location of your choice as the home location. Once reset, weather and local news relevant to the new location is displayed when the app is launched.

Step 1

Launch the AccuWeather app on your Samsung phone. An active cellular data or Wi-Fi connection is needed for the app to load properly.

Step 2

Tap “More,” then “Locations” to view the current cities set up through the app. The first city listed is your home location.

Step 3

Tap the “+” sign in the main menu of the app. Enter the zip code for the new location you want to use as your home location. Tap “Search.”

Step 4

Tap on the location in the search results. Tap “More,” then “Locations” again.

Step 5

Tap “Edit,” then “Set Home” next to the new location you added. It is now your home location. Tap “Done.”
