really nice, how about an addition for maps, just the like marsware's weather panel if you've ever used it, there they ask for the URL of the map image and they just keep fetching it.

Pocket Weather is the commercial name of SBSH's app....

You'd better find another name for this soft...

Why not :
Pocket Hurricane
Pocket Forecast
TTWWY : Take The Weather With You
TTWWU : Take The Weather With U
T2W2U : Same, but more like modern apps... A_C


Hope this will help...

If we already have Marsware that doesn't need NET CF3.5, why not just keep this one nice and simple.
Once youo start adding features galore it just get too resource hungry (memory!)

Sorry about that - I did not use the correct compiler options when compiling to the Pocket PC platform. I have recompiled and the DLLs were merged into the executable.

I will have to troubleshoot the CF3.5 - I didn't target that framework so it should not asking for that. It may be related to the missing DLLs issue, since both require the B4PPC compiler to use "optimized" options.

I have re-uploaded into post #1 - thanks for testing.

This sounds like an interesting idea. Do you have a URL for the marsware's weather panel? I am not familiar with this.

Thanks! I like "Pocket Forecast" and will use that (if it's not in use already). I wrote a wiki application called "Pocket Wiki" so I wanted to stick with the same naming convention.

I don't want to use any application names similar to the great programs A_C writes. I'm not worthy.
