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.

  • Google is giving away a free pen loop to Pixelbook owners

    It’s a pretty simple solution, but it’s better than nothing.

    In addition to the Pixelbook itself, Google also released the Pixelbook Pen alongside it. The Pixelbook Pen is a $100 stylus that allows you to doodle on the Pixelbook and easily call upon the Google Assistant, and while its price might be tough to swallow, it’s a really fun accessory if you’ve got the cash to cover it.

    However, as great as the Pixelbook Pen is, one thing I always thought was a bit odd is that there’s no way to store the Pen inside the Pixelbook like you can with the Samsung Chromebook Pro/Plus. I’m crossing my fingers that this is something we see with the Pixelbook 2, but until then, Google is giving current Pixelbook owners a free loop for their Pen.

    The loop attaches to the side of the Pixelbook’s base using an adhesive, and once you stick it on, that’s about all there is to it. You can slide the Pen in and out of it as you wish, and you can still use the Pixelbook in any of its four modes.

    If you h…

  • Android may have native Wi-Fi Direct printing in the future

    Android has a few different methods for printing, one of the easiest and most recognizable is probably Google’s Cloud Print. But setting up and using a random printer from your Android-powered phone or tablet isn’t quite as easy as it is from a more traditional laptop or desktop computer. According to the folks at XDA, though, that might change with the recent addition of Wi-Fi Direct printing to AOSP.  

    Wi-Fi Direct, for the unfamiliar, is a peer-to-peer system that allows two Wi-Fi enabled devices (like a phone and printer) to connect directly to one another without the use of a router.

  • Samsung: Galaxy Note 9 could get machine learning chip

  • Gboard v6.9 prepares Smart Replies to messenger notifications, deeper Bitmoji integration, and more [APK Teardown]

    Yesterday brought us a new version of Gboard, bumping the version number up to 6.9. There’s not much in the way of changes that you’ll see right away, but there is now a semi-hidden feature that will tell you about changes when they happen. However, a…

  • Android Wear 2.8 adds system-wide black theme

    Gray is so 2017.

    For those of you that continue to march on and use Android Wear, a new 2.8 update should be arriving on your wrists soon. When it does, you’ll likely notice that things look a bit darker. According to a thread on Reddit, updating to Android Wear 2.8 gets rid of Android Wear’s system-wide gray background and replaces it with a black one.

    As you can see in the pictures below, this black color is found on the quick settings page, the app drawer, notification shade, etc. I personally never had any issues with the old gray theme, but the new black coat of paint looks incredibly sleek.

    Users have reported getting the new look on the Huawei Watch 2 and original Huawei Watch, but it’s unclear at this time if the black theme is only available for watches with an AMOLED display.

    Also, as Droid Life points out, the naming for the software doesn’t make a lot of sense. The Android Wear app on your phone will be updated from 2.7.0.177669439 to 2.7.0.180439970, but the actual…

  • Android Wear v2.8 app update adds darker background and ‘improved notification glanceability’

  • Running out of space on your Chromebook? Try these tips

    16GB isn’t a lot of space. You might need a way to add more.

    While Chromebooks are mostly cloud-centric machines, there are still quite a few offline packaged apps available. Sometimes, when you have a lot of those installed alongside media like music, video, and pictures, there’s not much room left. Add in Google Drive syncing, and running out of space is a real possibility — especially on the 16GB storage models.

    There are a few things you can do to help if you ever hit the storage wall. Let’s have a look at some of them!

    Adding an SD card or USB thumb drive is an easy option

    This one is simple. Your Chromebook likely has an SD card reader on the side, and if you add a card to it, all the space on the card is available to the operating system for storage. The same goes for a USB thumb drive.

    There are a couple issues to be aware of here. The first is that you might not want half of an SD card or a USB thumb drive hanging off the side of your Chromebook where it can get…
