The Galaxy S4 and Note 3 are the only Android devices right now with ambient temperature and humidity sensors. This Weather Station app I developed (free and with no ads) utilizes these sensors and additional ones to the full delight of amateur and pro meteorologists:

----------

String resources from this app are attached for translation only. Do not assume you can use them in your own app without talking to me. If you want to use the strings in a revenue generating app please pm or email me beforehand for permission.

----------

Translating strings and arrays in res.zip:

All who help with translations will be acknowledged in the app. The res/values directory contains the files strings_localizable.xml and arrays_localizable.xml with the English (US) words and phrases that would need to translated. As an example here is how the translation to Brazilian Portuguese worked:

Step 1) Copy the strings_localizable.xml and arrays_localizable.xml files from res/values to another location.

Step 2) Complete the translation of the words and phrases inside the xml tags.

Example 1:

<string name="app_name">Weather Station</string>

becomes

<string name="app_name">Estação Meteorológica</string>

Example 2:

<string-array name="pref_notifications_when_entries">
<item>Rising</item>
<item>Falling</item>
</string-array>

becomes

<string-array name="pref_notifications_when_entries">
<item>Subindo</item>
<item>Caindo</item>
</string-array>

Step 3) The translated files are placed into a new directory inside the res directory called values-pt (or values-pt-rBR). I can take care of this last step I just need to know what language it is and if it is limited to a regional dialect.

The pressure will work on any device that has a barometer (e.g. Nexus 4, Galaxy S3, etc). The temp and humidity will only work on a Galaxy S4 b/c it is the only device right now with a ambient thermometer and hygrometer.

As I explain in the Google Play listing, the auto start permission is to run a very short service to re-set the alarm so background readings can be taken. The service only runs for a split second and then kills itself. If you disable background readings the service won't run on restart.

I am very interested in knowing how accurate the temperate sensor is working on the S4. Can someone test this out with a dedicated temperature reader and tell me how accurate it is or how off it is in Fahrenheit? Thanks.
