    Epocware Handy Weather v7.0 S60v5 SymbianOS9.4 Signed Full

    Epocware Handy Weather v7.0 S60v3 SymbianOS9.x Signed-Full









    It's not often that I get to review an application that's nigh-on perfect in every detail. Yet Handy Weather is such a program - admittedly it only really does one thing (check the upcoming weather for a small number of locations) but it does it so smoothly and unobtrusively that it just had to earn a coveted Mega-App award. Available for almost every handheld platform in the world (really), Handy Weather impresses under S60, shown here, by not only working as a standalone application but also making its functionality available as a screen-saver.

    After installation of the week-long trial version, you're gently led into picking a home city (even medium sized towns are available in many countries) and an auto-update interval (the default is 8 hours, which is about right), then it's into Handy Weather proper. Version 5, reviewed here, has had something of a UI tweak and more emphasis is now placed on the 5-day 'Day graph', giving a one glance view at what's coming up, weather-wise. This does make getting to other views slightly more laborious, but it also means that newcomers get to the most important view immediately, so probably a good thing.

    You're also prompted to set a default Internet access point before going online for your first 'Update' (also mapped to the '#' key for extra speed), but you don't have to worry about messing around with multiple access points - just set this to the GPRS setting you know will always be available. Each update only requires 2K of data (for a single city, at any rate), a trivially small hit. Even with several cities being set up for forecasts (you can add them in 'City>Add city'), at updates every 8 hours, we're only talking about 20K a day at most.

    Once there's data in the application, 'Day graph' gives an overview of the next 5 days, weather and max temperature, 'Night graph' looks at the forecast for each night over the next 5 days, along with minimum temperature (useful to know when it's going to be frosty).

    'View>Day forecast' gives more information for a specific day, with wind direction and speed, u-v index (a sign of the times) and humidity. Visibility and pressure, staples of the amateur weather sleuth, have now been relegated to a 'Current conditions' view, although this didn't seem to produce data for my location.

    The city support is particularly well thought out. Once added, you can use left-right to switch between city tabs, showing the same forecast view.

    New to version 5 are satellite maps of your area. These aren't updated automatically for bandwidth reasons, since they're essentially images (around 150k of data per map update). Maps for Temperature, Pressure and Cloud cover are available, as shown here, all zoomable to x4 and scrollable within each region. Each is useful, if not actually essential unless you're the aforementioned weather sleuth.

    Today the error came ... "Your subscription for weather forcasts have expired". Well, it was nice on the home screen for as long it lasted this time.
