Disclaimer: Don't blame me for the forecast itself! :D

Having said that, looks like we're in for lots of clear sky this weekend in the UK!

I have another suggestion...

How about a widget that just shows the forecast for the next 24 hours?

I'm really liking this new update. Liked the old one, but this new one is very nice.

Works perfectly on my Samsung Nexus S and on the Galaxy Tab 7 (old one).

Great work, thank you :D

Cheers

Ian

FYI, the latest update is doing a Force Close quite often on a HTC Desire.

I like the update. My only quibble is that it does not react to the orientation of the phone. I understand the need to use landscape mode, but I have a habit of holding it the other way round in landscape orientation. As I am quite ambidextrous, I have no problems having the buttons left or right, bit some people my have stricter preferences.

As soon as it's available for the wildfire I'll download it. Sounds ideal!

Is it still not showing up in the Market for you?? It should be, I've enabled this screen size in the manifest...

Please make sure you have version 2.11. If you already do and you're still getting the crash message popping up, please send the error report through as this really helps me debug it.

Actually, no! I've made the change, so next time I release an update the option will become available ;)

Done. This should be enabled next time I release an update.

Sorry for what is now a triple post, but several of you asked me to let you know when it would appear on their HTC Wildfires... and now it should! (fingers crossed!)

Changelog:

New Features:

- Should now be available on devices such as HTC Wildfire

- You can now choose between °F and °C

Bugfixes:

- Fixed background crash

- Fixed some large screen layout issues

- Fixed bug when entering manual locations in a timezone you're not part of.

PS: Anyone know what this review means??:

Good, but detail view and overview buttuns do exacly the opposite.

I already have it on my wildfire s, great app, but how do I get a better longitude / latitude setting, it varies from 61 meters to as much as 1000 meters sometimes, don't suppose a few meters makes much difference

Shibby,

It's working on my Wildfire, thanks. Some much fun in 1.2mb - no bloat-wear on Android!

Going to try it my wife's Acer Aspire One Netbook (Android 2.3)...

Would be nice when on the main screen that when you press the Android back button to close the app you don't get the "Are you sure message"

all we need now is a " move to sd card function " , also the forcast cloud cover is always about 3-4 hours out ,

Hmm, it will use GPS if it's turned on, however, it doesn't actually turn it on, does it! Might look into this in the future... in the meantime, you could manually configure your location.

I added Move To SD a version or 2 ago :D

As an ex-software developer i'm very impressed with the app, works perfectly on the Dell Streak. Scaling to a 5.1inch screen usually causes problems for most apps, but yours is 100%.
