1.4 should be hitting the app store shortly.
The main changes are
- a fully accessible version of Weather Gods on your wrist, split into two parts; a smart weather complication and a watch app.
- German localisation
- Japanese localisation
The watch app can be used with your current GPS and also with your favourites from the phone app. The watch app presents an hourly overview with each of the gods. Each god can be double tapped to drill down into some more detail. The Fire, Air, Water and Ice god also have their own 48 hourly timeline. For the first time, we have included dew point, humidity and pressure, with the Air God.
Optionally, you can install a couple of Weather Gods complications.
The first complication is the pressure for the hour and an indicator as to whether the pressure is rising, falling or level.
Our main complication is based on the smart weather conditions from the weather wheel on the phone app. For each hour, we check and prioritise the weather conditions and present the top three based on a priority system. For example, gale fore winds would be a higher priority than an overcast sky. You always get the current temperature in addition to the top three conditions.
Both complications work with time travel. This allows you to rotate the digital crown and hear the pressure or smart conditions for up to 48 hours in to the future.
The phone app has also received a few updates:
- Accessible stickers for Greek, German, Japanese, French, Spanish and Vietnamese
- Improvements to follow me and offline mode
- Accessibility improvements to the main notification setup screen. Previously, once you had configured a notification, we put you back to the start. Not helpful when working your way through the list. Now, we will put you back to the notification you just configured. This has a couple of benefits. First, you get confirmation that the notification is activated. Second, you can easily swipe to deactivate if you change your mind. Finally, it's easy to move on to the next notification in the list.
As ever, we couldn't have managed without the fantastic beta testers from AppleVis who helped us with the development and testing of the app and watch app. So, a big thank you to them. We are also indebted to our two translators who have made the Greek and German translations the best ever. Thank you Irene and Michaela :)
Please let us have any feedback about the watch app or the other changes to the main app. If you need any help with anything then please send us an email from Settings and we will try and get back to you as soon as we can.
