☛ Push the current temperature (or forecast high) straight to your badge icon on your homescreen, or get the forecast as a push notification up to 3 times a day.
☛ Sunrise/sunset times.
☛ Extended forecasts for regional areas.
☛ Tides.
☛ State Warnings.
☛ Realtime UV support for supported locations.
☛ Last update is always cached, so you don't need a network connection to check the weather for the week, once you've got it once.
☛ Updates are tiny (less than 10kb) so you don't have to worry about your data cap.
☛ Supports landscape and portrait view.
This app is delivered fresh to your door, from three smashing chaps in Adelaide.
