Default [APP]Location Aware myRadar for Tilt 2

myRadar is a location aware radar application that makes use of Wunderground and Accuweather US webservices to show real-time, animated Radar Images of your local area regardless of where in the US you might be. This application requires myLocation services to function automatically.

Note: the ROM based HTML viewer control that myRadar uses to pull web service data is broken in cooked WM6.5 builds from mid 23xxx up to 28205 (which tested good when I built for Raphael). The problem renders the viewer unable to "go online". No 21xxx ROMs are affected tmk. This includes all shipping WM6.5 builds & derivatives. Hopefully we'll get to the root problem itnf and it won't require a re-flash to correct

The myLocation service installer can be found here.

The program will install to \Program Files\myRadar. A custom png Icon is also located there for those who may wish to install it in Titanium or Manilla.

Have fun with it!

Changelog:

v1.1
Added gesture capability when loaded in landscape mode. changed pathing logic.
Todo: resize window when device is switched to landscape mode during display.

v1.2
Improved pathing logic. myRadar now looks for myRadar.html in the same folder.
Window will auto-resize when landscape mode is selected. Whether it shows the Map or a background "loading" display is sporadic however. I'm still tracking this bug.
White screen issue isn't fixed yet. I believe I know where the problem lies however.

v1.3
Auto-resize issues corrected. The shown map resizes correctly.
HTC G-Sensor enabled. Simply orient your device for the view you prefer.
Re-boot after installing to activate G-Sensor changes.

v1.4
I removed the Accuweather feed. Using the Wunderground Feed only. Buttons now allow zoom in/out in 120 mile radius increments.

Already have Radar working. I'll be working on his mortscript for the weather panels itnf. I took a cursory glance a few weeks ago and it's no big deal. I'm hoping to see a lat/long->zipcode myLocation plugin itnf from irus. That will make coding changes a breeze.

Please don't keep it US and WVGA only as your mylocation "awareness" keeps getting better! At least, the non-radar part (radar's US only, isn't it?)!

lol, guess I deserved that.

If you can give me some web URLs that return international radar images, I'd be happy to work custom HTML scripts into the application and let everybody choose which ones to use.

myRadar is really a customized browser that displays a page from myRadar.html. That HTML file contains the coded wunderground/accuweather info. I can link to any site that can return an animated gif when you give it a lat/long.

It's listed as International Site beta but maybe it's usable.

thread moved to Rhodium Themes, Applications and Software since it is mostly relevant to this device.

Sweet!
I always love new radar apps! Nice find!

Installed, my location is working properly.
When I click on the radar app, I get a banner in the toolbar with the name, but
a blank white screen where the radar app should be?
