    Looks definitely interesting, specially when signed by XLabz. I think I was right to wait.

    If it is not a critical disclosure, could you tell us which is/are your weather report sources?

    TIA!

    This looks interesting. Accurate weather is critical for me, so I would like to know about weather sources and battery drain. Thanks.

    Have you used both? I bought his, and it's okay, but I'd like to be able to zoom map to full screen, and show more than next 6 hours in hourly view.

    I haven't bought this one yet, does anyone know if it has these two features?

    @XLabz, why limit only to 4 days forecast, it should be minimum 7 days and also option to check further as in some other apps.
    That was major turn off for me.
    Also does this app supports Weather maps? and does it support Landscape mode?

    Weather+ HD doesn't have any background operations that can cause this. But as with any other app, if you leave your device switched on without power save mode, it could drain your battery. Our weather source is World Weather Online.

    Weather+ HD only shows you the local time and weather forecasts for the next 4 days of a particular location. You cannot view maps of any country.

    This app doesn't support Weather maps and works only in portrait mode as of now. We will keep adding new features in our upcoming updates depending on the number of users who request for it. We will definitely keep your suggestions in mind. Thanks.

    One last wish: Here in Europe Weather Online is rather poor for regions where detail is key, like mountains in winter.
    At this moment, W-O predictions for negative temperatures are very bad in the Alps near my home, giving positive errors in the range of 6-8° which I consider dangerous (you expected -10°C, you get -18: your truck just fails --same unreliability for skiers for instance).
    And, mind you, these issues also appear for most of the other Weather apps around here (if and when they even dare announcing their sources)
    So, my advice would be, rather than going straight against the "I-got-everything-including-radar-photos-music-and-coffee-also" competitors, just specialize on accuracy, multiplying the actual weather sources for instance.
    And have it known.
    I for one would definitely pay more than the average € for an app whose predictions would show accurate...

    Hi Herve!

    Thanks for your suggestion - we will look into the possibility of using multiple sources to arrive at a higher accuracy.
