access to daily, monthly and yearly stats would be a nice feature plus maybe a more,for lack of a better word, high tech/appleish design would be good. but i am so happy that we finally have an iOS app. i check my weather from my iphone probably 90% of the time so having this app is a huge plus for the weathercat software.

thanks

Nice Job!

An iPad version with access to some Graphs would be great! An iPad with a wall support could do a really nice weather display!

Thank you. I agree that an iPad version could be a beautiful weather display. It's a big project and one that The Grand Poohbah will consider carefully.

Designs for iPad Display

The Grand Poohbah would love to see designs for an WeatherCat display on the iPad in landscape orientation (1024 wide by 768 high). Show me what you'd like to see in a WeatherCat display.

Could we have an indication of reached Min/Max values for temp, solar UV and windspeed? If the bars could show that that would be nice feature.

That would be very nice indeed. I will see what I can do.

Is it possible to have the rain total to be 0.00 in place of 0.0 ???  Rain yesterday was 0.23 and the program just showed 0.2.   [rain2]

Will do. You're timing is impeccable. I was just about to send the 1.1 update to Apple for review.

I'm not too good with design and programming but it's definately an app I am willing to pay for. I know it's not a huge client base but you gotta start somewhere.

I have two weather stations, the ability to toggle between them would be great.

I got the DNS working so I can use it outside of my house, it would be great if it could automatically toggle to the internet if the local connection times out after a set interval (10 seconds) or immediately if it wasn't connected to the local network.

Leave your setting at the Internet full-time (Settings, Network = Internet). If you are within range of your WiFi, the client uses the WiFi to connect to the DNS. If you are outside the WiFi range, the client uses cellular. It should be seamless.

Thanks, that is working.  Any chance there will be an ability to toggle between two stations?  I have another two...

There's a good chance it will be in a future release, but not soon. I've got to get the localized version out first.
