Spb Software, well known Windows Mobile software developer, releases a major update for Spb Weather. Aside from the modernized finger-friendly UI, Spb Weather 2.0 offers forecasts by Foreca – the same source used by MSN.com. The software also has an expanded city database, and a revolutionary 3D globe with animated weather forecasts over a real satellite image of the sky. Current weather conditions data is retrieved from METAR (special aviation related weather observations data format), sourced from Weather.gov.
The 3D globe features animated, several-day forecasts, with global sky conditions, temperature, and precipitation for up to 10 selected cities. The animated globe cites the local time for each location, shows the nighttime overshadow, and can be zoomed in/out.
The UI is also more finger-friendly, making use of such features as gestures, adaptive skins, smooth animations and very fast response time.
Spb Weather is compatible with Windows Mobile Professional 5.0 or higher; all Windows Mobile screen resolutions are supported. A free, 15-day trial can be downloaded, or Spb Weather 2.0 may be purchased for 19.95 USD, or upgraded from 1.x Spb Weather versions for just 9.95 USD, at www.spbsoftwarehouse.com. According to Spb Software upgrades policy, all Spb Weather users, who have purchased the product within the last 90 days, are invited to exchange the previous version of software for the newly released one, for free. Users of Spb Traveler 2.x are also eligible to get Spb Weather 2.0 free of charge.
