Weather Forecast, new application made by Android in Spain

NEW! Version 2.3.5:
- Fixed important bug with widget 4x1 not refreshing.

Why do our app need those permissions?
- Network communication: data need to be downloaded.
- Your location: in case you use geolocation.
- Phone calls: we need to read phone state so we can automatically update widgets after booting when detecting an Internet connection.
- System tools: change Wi-Fi state in case you use the switch available on widget 4x1.

After several weeks of development, we bring you today a new application created by us. After SMSReader and Donut Clock, we present Weather Forecast.


Though the name explains what this application is about, we are going to explain you why this one is special.

With Weather Forecast you can obtain the current situation (temperature, humidity and wind conditions) and forecast for the next three days (with their maximum and minimum temperatures) simultaneously up to three different locations. Highlights:

- Simple and intuitive interface.
- It provides a direct access to AEMET's website in order to display useful information such as map-ray or infrared satellite image without leaving our application (only useful data for Spain).
- Supports Celsius and Fahrenheit.
- Available in English and Spanish.
- Version compatible with Android 1.6 and higher.
- It's free!

You can download it now from Android Market or you can use this QR Code:

Available in Android Market


As always, we are looking for your suggestions and ideas so we can improve this application. You can contact us via Twitter (@androidinspain), posting a comment here or sending us an email.

We hope you enjoy Weather Forecast and... thank you very much!
