Spb Software House just announced a major update for Spb Weather - one of Spb Software award-winning and best-selling weather application for Windows Mobile touchscreen phones. Aside from the modernized finger-friendly UI, Spb Weather 2.0 offers forecasts by Foreca - the trusted weather source of MSN.com, quotes current outside weather conditions, has an expanded city database and a revolutionary 3D globe with animated weather forecasts over a real satellite image of the sky. Spb Weather 2.0 builds on the success of the previous versions, bracing its original strong point and introducing new features:

  • 3D Globe with Animated Forecasts - The mobile weather forecasts are visualized similar to those on TV: the 3D globe runs animated, several-day forecasts, with global sky conditions, temperature, and precipitation for up to 10 selected cities. The animated globe cites the local time for each location, shows the nighttime overshadow, and can be zoomed in/out.
  • Modern Finger Friendly UI - The new interface of Spb Weather 2.0 is based on the time-tested Spb Mobile Shell UI engine, making use of such prized features as gestures, adaptive skins, smooth animations and very fast response time.
  • Reliable Forecast Source - Spb Weather 2.0 global weather service is powered by Foreca, the trusted provider of MSN.com. The program also supports forecasts from US National Weather Service and Gismeteo, plus users still have the flexibility to create and use custom weather source templates.
  • Current Weather Conditions - Current weather conditions data is retrieved from METAR (special aviation related weather observations data format), sourced from Weather.gov.

Spb Weather is compatible with Windows Mobile Professional 5.0 or higher touchscreen devices and supports all screen resolutions. As always, Spb offers a fully functional free, 15 days trial version; the full version costs US$ 19.95 while upgrades from 1.x Spb Weather versions are available for US$ 9.95. According to Spb Software upgrades policy, all Spb Weather users, who have purchased the product within the last 90 days, are invited to exchange the previous version of software for the newly released one, for free.
Users of Spb Traveler 2.x are also eligible to get Spb Weather 2.0 free of charge.

Cheers ~ Arne
