If I understand right, you would like to see somewhere on mainpage rose with wind direction?
That's what I was thinking. Even just an indicator arrow. Maybe in the little space left of the temp/under the station ID.

Or what about instead of text like "South" a little rose instead?

Status bar info is little bit problem, but somewhere on mainscreen I can show some little rose with actual wind direction. Also there is no much space for gust, which I'd like see there :) But yes, this feature I will try add.

So that rose icon updates with the station data?

If so, That's like perfect. Quick reference graphical is easy to spot.

OK if the "wind rose" with arrow is running ....
I think we do not need the next icon (wind) cause it all could be done by the "wind rose" with arrow.
You got more space

Update 4.0.3 and 4.0.9 Android

New feature

- Wind icon with direction rose compass
- windy widget map in Wind section (only paid version)

I also tried fix unexpected imperial unit problem in temperature chart. but I'm not sure if it's working right. I neve got wrong dataset... But sometimes it happens.

Help
Please if you will see in temperature chart units with '!', please contact me (F! or C!) with screenshot if you can. I'd like know if temperature/dew chart data shows right in imperial units. Also I have still one bad feedback with autorefresh. But you wrote me, it's OK...

Hello
It seems to run OK
Meanwhile let me point other option.
Once you got in the middle an area with wind info named "WIND FROM" maybe you can use the "wind rose" in this area too and free the upper area ( where it is now).
In that way we got a visual and a descritive indication of the wind in one onle position.
That area could be also the sensitive area to call the wind page.
On the wind page I would like to see a way to get back to main page diferent from the "PWS METEO" on first row because when we have auto update selected it will reload every time we come back from wind page to main page. Hope you agree and that could be done.
Regards
JMCN

I thought of that too. It's another good option.

thanks guys!

I can make clickable "wind from" section, but I tried put compass inside the box, but there is no space. Only without word direction. I will think about it. Anyway, compass icon in the top menu will stay there, wind section is my favorite :)

Autorefresh will be repaired, but don't know how just now. I know about problem with autorefresh if you go back to main page via app logo - page is refreshed again.

thanks for new ideas for improvements!

buffy,

Have you been able to figure out how to add the weather to the lock screen and the icon bar(Taskbar)?

Thanks!

That is right :)
Right now is use Wunderground app because it allows me to see my temperature on my taskbar wile on my phone and also allows me to see it while the phone is locked with a lockscreen forecast.
Let me try again for pictures.

I will try learn something about this feature

If it can be selected on or off it would be a great feature.

The choice for Wind Rose on top bar is exactly right. On top, first thing I see.

All the data is right below. This is how info apps should be made. No extra bull. The app is tiny on your phone but does a workhorse job of delivery.

I was looking for some solution for lockscreen. And I have not good news about this. Lock screen is little bit impossible just now. Also widget :( android and Ios have another solutions of these and it's difficult for me cover both platforms. Sorry guys.

Status bar looks better. I know how can I change background color of status bar :)

but all features above need background running.

After app will be finished, I will try add these features. Now I have still so many things for repair, because of unstable WU. I have still issues with metric/imperial mesh units..
