Cumulus Weather Monitor for Android
« on: October 06, 2019, 05:39:17 AM »
Hi,
we made simple app for monitoring Cumulus realtime.txt file from any server/website. If you store file from your PWS on server, simple add URL of file and you can start monitoring your Personal Weather Station.

Will be great to send me some ideas for improvement. We will try make also iOS version.

Thank you so much

How soon can we expect to see this for iPhone? I already upload my realtime.txt and I was very excited to see this. Then I saw no version for my iPhone. Huge bummer. Many people use iOS so please let us in too.

Many thanks for your interesting in our new app. We're developing this android app for few weeks. Now we need feedback for Android version to fix issues if there are. If everything will be OK, we will try make also iOS version. But Apple doesn't allow adding http url requests (without SSL) and we need to solve this iOS issue before app will go to apple store.

If we find iOS solution, apple app could be in store up to 1-2 weeks.

Nice app!

Is there a possibility of adding an option to choose our own automatic refresh rate interval? I upload my realtime.txt every 4 seconds, so it would be great to be able to have it auto-refresh every 5 seconds.

thanks a lot. Yes, autorefresh is possible to add. We had this feature in apps, but we switched it off. We can add this feature as option in settings. Thanks for your idea.

That'd be great! I would certainly pay for an ad-free version to show my support for the development. :)

Looks good.  =D>  Can't wait for the paid no-ads version. I really like your PWS app and paid for it too.

Suggestion: PWS name field needs more than 8 characters.  16 should cover most situations.

thanks a lot. 16 chars? I am not sure if we find more place there. maybe more thin font. added to TODOLIST. thank you for feedback

btw in this app there is inapp purchase for no ads in settings.

EDIT I see there is some problem with product :) sorry. we will fix it

Heh...it took 9 characters for the PWS name (which is what I needed) even though it didn't display it in the text entry box.

Also, just got the ad-removal link to work in the app.  Nicely done.

One little thing:  Date format of 06/10/2019: needs an option to change it to 10/6/2019 for us in the USA.  I notice that it is being sent as 06/10/2019 by Cumulus so maybe there is a way to change that there instead.

Definitely needs auto-update.  Paid version does not update unless you hit the reload icon at the upper right.  I think the ad version did update itself.

we will talk today about changes in app. yes, we will try make station name longer. now you see only 8 characters.

we fixed noads link in app, thanks for test :)

date format and also units we take from cumulus file, you should be able to change it.

this app has not autoupdate. but we will add it. there is little bit problem with background downloading data restrictions.
