About

Android mobile application - Europe Live Weather Compare. Full Java source code and most of the code for the webserver stuff that provides the data feed.

Originally developed for a Design/HCI module as part of a CS course at UCL, London, from Dec to Jan 2012-13.

Ideas for future implementations

Top priority

  • Use the latest Android API to bring it up-to-date now that so few phones use the old (pre-14) APIs
  • Switch to Google Maps API v2.0 now that v1 is deprecated (essential as they no longer issue keys for v1)
  • Support for other languages (only English at present)
  • Support for large screen sizes and high resolutions (currently looks excessivley stretched)

Mid priority

  • Add feels-like and wind direction variables
  • Add views for min/max data from yesterday, maybe swipe up/down to swap between these and the 'Latest' view
  • Allow multiple city collections, so users can switch between different 9-city views (Europe, UK for example)

Low priority

  • Draggable tiles to allow custom arrangement
  • Improved graphics and animation
  • List-based selection of cities

Unsure

  • List of available cities read from server rather than locally (SQLite DB).
  • Expand to other continents, and/or globally.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
