As part of the fan base, I’m happy to share that Moshen Chan’s world clock and weather app, Living Earth HD, now contains a larger extended forecast with even more details. In addition, v1.3 brings support for Apple’s upcoming iOS 5 and makes some helpful tweaks to the alarm clock feature.
Even though Living Earth HD had a basic forecast before, tapping on the current weather will now result in a full 7-day forecast in list view. Taking things a step farther, tapping on a day will show or hide the hourly details, featuring temp, wind speed, humidity, cloud cover, and chance of precipitation. Actually, the information is for every two hours and trimmed to the remainder of the day, when applicable. All of this weather data is provided by the acclaimed Weather Underground.
Further changes incorporated in Living Earth HD v1.3 include:
• Alarm sound volume respects system volume setting.
• Alarm ramps up in volume over 10 seconds.
• Touch and hold to take photo/post to Twitter/Facebook is less sensitive.
Living Earth HD is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, third generation iPod touch, and fourth generation iPod touch running iOS 4.0 or later, and available in the App Store for $.99.
