Aeris Wear Update 1.0.6

After reviewing user feedback and requests, we’ve worked hard to update our latest app, Aeris Wear, by adding new features and increasing user ease and convenience.  Here’s what’s new and updated in Aeris Wear 1.0.6:

We’ve added more data sync interval options to help optimize your device’s battery life.  Choose how often you want Aeris Wear to update, from every 15 minutes to only 4 times a day.

You may now choose to turn notifications off.  Aeris Wear will still update, but your device will not alert you when it does so.

Current and forecast weather are now more precise with the addition of numerous weather observation sites. Aeris Wear gives you the ability to choose between only official data or multiple other data sources so you can get the most accurate weather.

Pick which location you’d like to receive data for by either using your device’s GPS location or manually setting a desired location.  Check out the weather at your vacation resort before you hop on the plane!

Data now automatically updates when Aeris Wear is launched from your Wear device.

 

Visit the Google Play store to download Aeris Wear today!  Once you’ve experienced the convenience of having your weather just a glimpse away, upgrade to Pro for $0.99 to enjoy all 9 available cards, including satellite and advisories.

Aeris iOS Weather Framework: 2.0 Preview – Part 1

Our Aeris iOS Weather Framework has been in the hands of developers and Aeris users for about two and a half years already and has received a lot of positive feedback from everyone who has been using it within their own iOS applications. Our goal with the iOS framework has always been to make interacting and integrating with our core Aeris API quick and painless so you can focus your time on building great applications instead of worrying about fetching, parsing and displaying weather data. Now, after months of planning and development behind the scenes, we’re excited to give our first public preview of what the new 2.0 version of our iOS weather framework will bring! Instead of trying to build new features on top of old legacy code, we decided to start from scratch using modernized Objective-C code, new Objective-C literals and new iOS APIs with a huge number of improvements. As a result, we went straight to 2.0 with a complete rewrite, so let’s preview some of the major changes and improvements.

Integration examples of using the AerisMaps library are available within the AerisDemo application, included with the SDK.  Importing and setting up the AerisDemo application requires several steps as outline in the documentation.  This video tutorial expands on this, stepping you through the installation of the Aeris Android Weather SDK within Eclipse. Be sure to review the Getting Started section and the AerisDemo project.
