Since buying an iPad from the US a month or so ago, I’ve been hoping for an iPad version of one of my favourite iPhone apps – Pocket Weather AU. And now it’s finally here.
From the get-go, Shifty Jelly has had Pocket Weather World HD available on iPad, but this doesn’t source its data from the local bureau of meteorology (BOM). That changed today with Apple approving Pocket Weather AU HD.
It’s available in the App Store now for only $2.49, and builds well on its iPhone counterpart. This app gives you more weather data than you could imagine needing for your chosen city. There’s time, current temperature, rainfall, humidity, sunrise and sunset, wind direction, UV levels, air pressure, dew point, and a six day forecast. It’s beautifully set out and has two sleek skins to choose from.
You can view the nearest radar, which pops up over the app, and the ‘Locations by Awesomeness’ menu lets you choose a town or city by GPS localisation, selecting from a map, or browsing through the list of weather stations.
