Description

eWeather and News is designed for exhibition mode, but will also work as a standalone app. Using your GPS location or location search, it will give you the current weather conditions, current time, and let you choose between displaying your local 3-day forecast or displaying a local/national news feed. It refreshes hourly.

Location services are not required. If they are turned off, a location search can be entered to find your location.

This app requires data services. Planned updates include:

The ability to save more than one location at a time.

Dim screen upon user request (if possible)
