With all this climate change going on it's getting ever harder to work out whether you need to take an umbrella out with you in the morning or pack your suntan lotion.
Luckily, if you install Elecont Weather on your PDA, you shouldn't get caught unprepared again. This Windows Mobile application provides you with 10-day, up-to-the-hour forecasts forecasts for more than 51,000 different cities across the World, using weather data from the WSI Corp.
Elecont Weather displays forecasts for the next 10 days from a new panel on your Today screen. Each day is given a weather icon and a temperature and scrolling forward and backwards through the days is done by clicking on the left and right arrows. It makes for a really neat, at-a-glance view of the climate for the next few days. Best of all, it's constantly updated, so you can be sure that the information is pretty accurate.
Opening up the Elecont Weather application itself offers you the chance to add new cities to your profile, rename cities, and perform live updates. The Options menu lets you play around with all manner of settings, including customizing the Today screen view, unit of measurement, background, language, icons, animations, and more. The 'Details' section even lets you mess around with fonts, sizes and text colors.
I must say that I found the user interface within Elecont Weather a little irritating. The layout and structure of the Options menu is a bit confusing, and when adding a city you need to choose the country first, rather than just being able to type the name of the city and access the suggestions list straight away.
On the whole though, Elecont Weather provides a clear and accurate way to check the forecast for the coming days.
