I have not tried your app yet but I don't know whether your app has dual temperature (C and F) selection display at the same time or just a single temperature unit (C or F) selection. I think with globalization, people who are traveling for business or leisure will be better off to know both temperature at the same time rather than switching to single unit.

Hello,

Application lets to switch between Celsius or Farenheit in preferences screen. Display the two values at the same time can be a good idea but it takes place on UI that is already consistent. I'm going to think about

Just checked it out. Firstly, the UI can be better just by using more visually pleasant, modern font. The old typewriter font (courier?) looks really outdated. More importantly, the weather information is really inaccurate. I checked out two cities right next to each other in my country. The yahoo weather has both cities at 15C while your app has one city at 16C and other at 12C. Also checked those cities at accuweather which has the same results as the yahoo's. Don't know why your app shows 16C and 12C (tried refreshing and restarting).

Hello,

For the fonts, I'm going to check to improve that.

Weather data are provided by OpenWeatherMap project that is a community and free project to provide data weather API. So, I hope data are good and if not (sometimes I think not all the time), I think they will work on to improve quality of the API.

I would find dual temp display useful too, widgets too please. I know makes for a busy widget so there is your challenge.

Also, 1x1 widget please with weather icon, Celsius and Fahrenheit and anything else you can squeeze into a 1x1. I like all my useful apps on one screen and this is hard to do when one hogs the screen. I'll check this app out when I see 1x1 widget is available.
