iPhone weather app - submit your weather station now

Post by undertheweather » Thu 05 May 2011 2:01 am

Hi all,

I've been working on an iPhone application for Cumulus users to view both theirs and others stations.

Due out in June it will include all the weather data from your own weather station as well as more functionality
that the iPhone can offer such as push notifications, GPS location, graphing etc.

To submit your weather station please visit www.undertheweather.co.nz and complete the form.
Screenshots of the application are also available there too.

Please also contact me if you have any feature requests that you would like to see included in the 1st version due
out in June.

Thanks, Ben

Wiki quote ...
The App Store is a digital application distribution platform for iOS developed and maintained by Apple.

The service allows users to browse and download applications from the iTunes Store that were developed with the iOS SDK or Mac SDK and published through Apple. Depending on the application, they are available either for free or at a cost. The applications can be downloaded directly to a target device, or downloaded onto a PC or Mac via iTunes. 30% of revenue from the store go to Apple, and 70% go to the producer of the app. ...
Would the author care to clarify their position and any benefits there may be for information providers ?

Thanks for your post - it is intended the app will cost approx. $2.59 NZD. This will go towards the significant development costs
of the app and ongoing development.

There is no charge to submit your own personal weather station however there will no be any revenue passed on to individual
station owners who submit their station. Your data is available freely on the internet via your own website. This platform simply provides another platform for people to view it.

Thanks, Ben

Ben is kindly letting me test his app and I gotta say it's damn good. I'll post up when it's available in the apps store.

Please guys, add your stations here: http://www.undertheweather.co.nz/ don't worry about the cumulusxml.tpl file, just the path to your realtime.txt file is enough.

I've submitted one of my sites. The form does not give you the opportunity to say where your realtime.txt file is! (Mine is not in the root of the website)

I'm sure someone will contact me about it at some point when they can't find it

Thanks David - have added the path to realtime.txt on website - thanks for your feedback.

App should be out later this week - we will notify everyone who has submitted a station once available.

Regards, Ben

Hi all,

Latest update for the Under the Weather app - the iPhone version is currently with Apple awaiting review. As has been mentioned here previously I do have some promotion codes from Apple available for me to give away.

If you would like to win a promo code I will run the following competition;

> Anyone who 'likes' our Under the Weather page on Facebook and has submitted their weather station to the app will go into draw to win 1 of 5 promo codes.

> Anyone who 'follows' our Twitter page and has submitted their weather station to the app will go into draw to win 1 of 5 promo codes.

Please post your station name to our wall or twitter account when you enter to be in the draw.

Enter both if you like.

Cut off to enter is 12pm a week today - Friday 9th September (NZ time).

The app will only cost USD $1.99, however I would like to offer at least a chance of getting a free version to the weather station owners that have supported me and provided some great feedback.

Facebook -> https://www.facebook.com/pages/Under-th ... 7575447060
Twitter -> http://twitter.com/#!/underweatherapp

P.S. Anyone who already follows us on either and has submitted their station will be valid also.

Appreciate the support. Thanks, Ben

I'm quite happy to pay $1.99 -- you need to recoup your developers fee from Apple somehow, especially as they will take 30% commission on each purchase!
