It looks like it's still pretty much the free app minus the ads and a nicer look at this stage, but hopefully they update it quicker now that it's out, it's a shame that they didn't somehow allow subscribers to get it for free though.

Figure I'd kick off a weather app thread.
This is the first post but will most likely end up down the thread a bit.

I think a few of us use the Oz Weather app.. I noticed recently the Tables/Graphs were not loading. Got onto the developer this morning. He says it looks like the BOM have changed their file naming convention. An update will be required to fix. I presume he will be attending to it..
2006 - 543.5mm, 2007 - 701.5mm, 2008 - 833.5mm, 2009 - 579mm, 2010 - 631.5mm, 2011 - 872.5mm, 2012 - 770mm

I'll put in a plug for PocketWeather - nice layout, all the info is there. If they had the graphs in there I'd probably save time switching between it an OzWeather all the time :)

How long before the local apps start consuming the new 'chance of rain' number?

I agree with Pocket Weather, but the new version does support 'Chance of Rain', check out Weather AU.

Ah, thanks for the tip - my location is using the Swanbourne data, which leaves that field blank. Switching to 'Perth' has fixed it.

The latest update has fixed the historical data problem (72 hour tables and graphs).. :)
