Your feedback is welcomed, and the application includes an email link on its information screen for that purpose.

NOTES:
- This application contains weather data *only* for Australian places. It is offered to overseas users only for those who want to keep an eye on Australian weather.
- Forecasts for regional locations for which BOM does not supply 7 day official forecasts have been extended with BOM computer modelling data. This is not as reliable as human-generated forecasts, but can still provide useful guidance about temperature and rainfall trends for those locations where this is not available from BOM published forecasts.

Recently changed in this version

v1.0.1
* Observations were labeled as an hour older than they actually were due to incorrect daylight savings offset. Rest easy everyone - now fixed!

    I bought this app because it was really good on my iPhone, but am disappointed in the lack of features between the versions. This Android version really needs an update. C'mon guys.

    This app is buggy on Android. I have to hit refresh when changing cities which is annoying

    I had this same app on the iPhone and loved it, but after getting this app on android was disappointed with the reduced features, specifically the inability to view the temperature over time graphs.
