1.3.2 Weather Underground

NEW: Weather Underground provider for current weather.

To choose Weather Underground go to YoWindow Settings/Advanced/Weather

Many people keep reporting that METAR observations are not good for their area.
Now we are providing an alternative.
Weather Underground owns a large network of Personal Weather Stations (PWS).
One of the stations maybe at your place - closer than METAR.
So you can get more accurate weather.

This is the first time we are starting to pay for weather data.
Weather Underground is quite expensive.
I hope we can handle it in the long run.

It's hard to test weather provider quality for me alone.
If you played around with this feature let us know if it works for you.

I'm sure at least one YoWindow user will love this feature ;)

Server side of this feature was programmed by Askar.

Other changes:
- We had to increase minimal supported Android version to 2.3.3 because Android 2.3 is officially obsolete.
- A number of crashes fixed, many related to new photo landscapes.
- FIXED: Christmas lights are still on.

Hi Pasha,

This is a suggestion.
The selection of wunderground instead of METARs needs to be location specific.

I added Oymyakon, Russia.
I know that they have a PWS.
So I selected wunderground for them.

Wunderground then became the provider for Mansfield, Vienna, Leiden, and Saint Petersburg.
The PWS that was chosen for Mansfield had an incorrect reading.
I don't even know which PWS was chosen.

I have a small PWS that cannot be connected to the computer.
But I was able to compare it to the PWS that was chosen.
There was a 2 degree difference.
The PWS used by the weather channel 3 miles away agreed with mine.
The METAR 12 miles away was 1 degree difference.

Is there a way to show the user which PWS has been chosen?
Or let the user select a PWS for locations like Oymyakon and use the METAR for locations like Mansfield?

This is just a suggestion.

Marty

The following features are planned.
- Set custom weather provider for a location.
- Plug PWS data.

We just need time.

Hello Pavel
I have a free version of YoWindow on your Android device. I do not see anywhere that option for the Weather Underground. I there I send data from your station for eight years. That would suit me really then it would be realistic to printed information on YoWindow window with my cell Trnovec Bartolovecki.

Installed on Android 2.2 >> no PWS option.
How about having it on PC (Windows 8.1)?

Rik, PWS support is not available yet in YoWindow for Andorid.
This feature is planned.
I don't know when it will be ready.
