36,000 miles above the North Dakota.

36,000 miles above the North Dakota.

I was pleased today when Apple sent me a nice little note announcing that my latest app was approved for sale.

Weather Planet 1.0 gives you a “private” weather satellite as it shows you an alien’s eye view from thousands of miles above our home. Continually  updated clouds reflect current conditions as you can add any city you like from a database of thousands around the world. Scan mode will hop from city to city showing current weather and temperature. Want more? You can bring up detailed weather forecasts courtesy of Weather Underground.

Want to watch the seasons change? Different Earth textures load in each month, letting you see the advance and retreat of the winter’s snow cover.

The background contains all 88 constellations and the moon for a more realistic view.

Hope you enjoy it. And now back to Distant Suns….

  1. I think there is a crucial bug,i downloaded the application and after the first use which everything was ok, a persistent pop-up window appears saying “unable to discover your current location, using preferences instead” by clicking ok it reappears,as a result the app is totally useless, I have an ipod touch 2g and iphone3.1.2Os…hope for an update

  2. that is an occasional bug on part of the software that generates the cloud maps. It’s not my software, so there is nothing that I can do about it, I just fetch the cloud data every 3 hours and display what it gives me.

    It doesn’t happen very often thank goodness, but does give a bad impression if that’s the first thing you see.

  3. Looks great. But one half of the globe is covered in a ‘milky’ haze through which you can barely see the continents, but no clouds, while the other half shows the continents and clouds perfectly. What’s wrong?
