Pocket Weather AU
*** There are two version of Pocket Weather: World and Australia. This is the Australian one and has AUSTRALIAN DATA ONLY. ***
If you have relatives in Australia, or your an expat, then you should know that there's only one reliable source for Australian Weather -> the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM). Your built in iPhone Weather App doesn't use this source, which is why Pocket Weather AU exists. We only have Australian Weather, but really, it's the best in the world, so what more do you need?

- Push current temp, text forecasts and warnings to your iPhone (NEW in 2.0)
- Tide graphs for hundreds of locations around Australia
- Animated weather icons
- Sunrise/sunset times
- All of the BOM rain and wind doppler radars with Find/Track me function as well as the ability to have it auto update (Live Radar in settings, NEW in 2.0)

- Give your locations custom names (NEW in 2.0)

- Last update is always cached, so you don't need a network connection to check the weather for the week, once you've got it once.
- Updates are tiny (less than 10kb) so you don't have to worry about your iPhone data cap.
- Supports landscape and portrait view, and in landscape you get all the information on a single page.

- The national radar rain overlay was drifted down the page in the last update, so we sang it a love song, bought it some flowers, and actually sat down and listened to it. We didn't try to solve it's problems, but instead provided a listening ear. "This is my listening face" we said "I'm cooking, and making art at the same time" we stated. Now it's back where it should be. Only one of you noticed this, shame on you, the national rain radar is a precious thing. Don't ever forget that.
- Fixed some of the push notifications sounding like they'd been recorded with a strong headwind
- Other minor bug fixes
