Canada Weather 2.0

by on November 13, 2016

I’m happy to announce that after a week-long struggle with the intricacies of the Android AppWidget framework, I’ve just released a new version of Canada Weather. Over the past year requests have piled up involving more flexibility for the widget, better use of space on the widget, antiquated user interface, no option for sound on […]

Canada Weather & Radar 1.1

by on December 24, 2015

After over a year without an update, it was high time Canada Weather & Radar got a facelift. Users frequently emailed requesting that alert notifications be cancellable, for dark text with transparent background for the widget, for a direct link to Environment Canada’s 24-Hour forecast for each location, and for a more modern looking user […]

Canada Weather 1.0!

by on June 10, 2014

It’s been a 6-month odyssey, but finally Canada Weather 1.0 is ready! The trip consisted of a complete rewrite of what was otherwise a completely disjointed assembly of libraries that worked poorly together and made it difficult to fix problems.

Canada Weather 0.33 release

Next on the agenda: […]

Canada Weather 0.3 Release

by on May 7, 2013

After a few months of comments on the last release of Canada Weather, I decided fixing the widget layout and adding animated radar were worth it. In addition, this release includes the ability to switch icon sets (environment canada just released a new set) and switch the background to light (because the new icon set […]

Canada Weather 0.2

by on February 7, 2013

This update was a long time coming, partly because so many people are using this app now that I’m nervous to try anything new, and partly because it required that I learn how to do three completely new things in Android – Services, Broadcast Receivers, and WidgetProviders. Widgets in particular can be very tricky, and […]

(Yet another) Canada Weather App

by on November 17, 2012

I check the weather about fifty times a day. Okay, not really, but between seeing where it’s snowing the most and checking to see if it will be raining too hard to dig holes (my job), I check it a lot, and usually in five or six locations. I’ve always liked Environment Canada’s forecasts, but […]
