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.

  • Five reasons not to buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+

    If you’re thinking of purchasing the new Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+, here are the reasons you should be thinking twice.(This is a preview – click here to read the entire entry.)

  • It’s still difficult to just buy a Google Pixel today, and that’s insane

    For all of its great successes in the Pixel, Google still has one critical flaw to figure out.

    April 20 marked the six-month anniversary of the Google Pixel going on sale in the Play Store. As was typical for a Google phone launch, they were tough to get ahold of — backorders reached weeks or even months, depending on what model you wanted. Now, six months later, Google inexplicably still can’t keep Pixels in stock. Just head to the Play Store right now and see that most configuration combinations aren’t available.

    Even the models that you can click “buy” on — like a black 32GB Pixel or silver 128GB Pixel XL — won’t ship for two to four weeks. Once again, this is a phone that has been on sale for six months and not once in the past 180+ days has the stock situation been any better. How is it that Google can get this so wrong? Part of it is expectations, but the blame mostly lies on Google’s apparent inability to control its supply chain.

    When it’s tough to ge…

  • [Deal Alert] Get a Nextbit Robin for $136.99 ($163 off) from eBay

    The Nextbit Robin was released to the general public last year, after it finished its Kitckstarter campaign at over $1.3 million. It was an interesting phone, and over the past few months, we’ve seen it drop lower and lower. Now you can get the Robin for just $136.99 – a $163 discount from its current MSRP.

    If you need a refresher, the Robin has a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage with 100GB of cloud space, a 5.2″ 1080p IPS LCD, a 2,600mAh battery, and a USB Type-C port.

  • [Deal Alert] Get a refurbished UE MEGABOOM for just $129.99 at Best Buy ($170 off MSRP)

    Here at AP, we’re quite fond of Ultimate Ears’ MEGABOOM Bluetooth speaker. In our review of it from back in 2015, we found that it was tough, sounded great, and had a nice companion app. The only major sticking point – its MSRP of $299.99 (which it still retails for, by the way) makes it pretty pricey for a Bluetooth speaker. However, Best Buy is currently selling refurbished units of the MEGABOOM for just $129.99 a pop, making it a much more enticing value.

  • Livestream’s Mevo camera now supports YouTube Live

    Last year, Livestream (yes, there is a company called Livestream) released the Mevo camera, a small device designed for live broadcasting on the go. It was the first camera with integrated Facebook Live streaming, along with support for Livestream’s own service (Periscope support came later). Now the beta versions of the iOS and Android apps support streaming straight to YouTube.

    While the camera can record video at 4K with the new beta, it can only broadcast video to YouTube at 1080p. It’s worth noting that the Android app for the Mevo is still in beta – you’ll need to join the G+ testing community to get it (instructions here). The finished Android app is expected sometime this summer.
