JustTheWeather app for Android / Google Phone


I'm playing around with the new Android platform and have produced my first application. It's called JustTheWeather and takes your GPS location and queries the Google weather api for current and forecast conditions, displaying the results with text and images.

I wanted to make a simple app with just the weather so my 10 year old step daughter could look on my phone for her daily question of "What's the weather going to be like today?".
It has been fun and I've learned quite a lot, mostly that I have a lot to learn!
Probably going to publish it to the android market soon, for free of course, it's so simple that I can't imagine charging for it.
This was just a stepping stone (or diving board depending upon how you look at it) into building the application I really want on my Google phone. Shhh.... more to come.
