Sailing Weather


Google has pushed an update again to Google Maps that has broken the app. I hope to have a fix this weekend.

Sailing Weather is a simple app used to determine if the weather forecast is good enough to go sailing based on your preferences. Set your preferred weather conditions for temperature, rain, wind and a sail boat icon is displayed if the weather is within those parameters, a house icon is displayed otherwise.

Features
- New weather data provider with a more accurate weather forecast
- Touch the daily weather forecast to get a detailed hourly weather forecast
- Select a forecast start and end time to get the forecast for the hours you are actually awake
- Redesigned use interface with scalable images that look much better
- Scales beautifully on both small and large screens
- Fast load time
- Small size
- English and metric weather data selected automatically based on your location
- Location based on GPS, zip code, city/state or city/country (GPS is slow, entering a location is much faster)

A nice idea, but needs to be more configurable It's good to be able to see at a glance when the weather might be OK, but why does the period of interest have to start before midday and end in the afternoon? And would it be so difficult to allow the windspeed to be expressed in knots or Beaufort force? A few minor tweaks would make it much more useful.

Stopped working with connection error This app was ok for a while, few adds which is ok for a free app. Must of had an update as now I get a popup covering the screen with every screen click within the the app and it hasent worked since, just keeps saying connection error. Guess they were trying to make more advertising money but they broke the app in the process. Anyways its a neat idea for an app (picture of a sailboat when its sailing weather, picture of a house when bad) but the information it gives can be found in a million other apps.

Pretty good It would be good if units were changeable. As in wind speed, I'm not even sure what m means but knots and kilometres would be good.
