Description

HandWx is an Android application that delivers pinpoint weather forecasts and high quality radar images to the handset based on the phone's location (or a location you designate).

Location, Location, Location

HandWx knows where you are, even when you don't.

Imagine you're on a trip driving across the country and you want to know if it's going to be warm enough to camp outdoors in your lightweight sleeping bag.  You don't know a zip code and there's no discernible town nearby to get a quick bearing on a forecast.  Flip on your Android phone and load up HandWx and you'll soon have a forecast for up to seven days for your current location. You can track radar and storm data, wherever you are, and if the forecast calls for a cold or stormy night, that old motel you just passed won't look so bad.

More Location, Location, Location

Your phone can make the forecast and radar images follow you around.

Weather trackers can ask the application to follow their current location and update the radar tiles every 5 minutes as they move. 

Even More Location, Location, Location

Get a forecast for any location by lat/lon coordinate, zip code, or city and state.

Users can get a forecast for any location in the United States by typing in a zip code, latitude/longitude coordinates, a city and state, or the address of a local milestone. The Android geo-coding automatically locates the latitude and longitude for the information you entered, allowing HandWx to deliver the latest forecast for that location. Alternatively, triangulation with cellular tower signals helps locate your precise location which can be used for getting a forecast or accessing tiled weather radar data whenever you are in "follow-me" mode.
