NORTHFIELD, Illinois — Despite the “convenience” of the wireless web and the ability to access the Internet from a personal digital assistant, finding the information you need is not as simple as it should be. For example, to get the local forecast on most wireless phones, you have to first open a browser, go to a specific website, wait for that website to load, enter in your city and more waiting until the forecast is displayed. You then have to repeat the process throughout the day if you’d like to refer to it again.
Weather Center, neohand’s latest solution for smartphones, is designed to take the frustration and wait out of accessing weather forecasts on your Windows Mobile/Pocket PC handheld device. With a minimal amount of effort, you can easily download and store current conditions and detailed weather forecasts for your choice of more than 5,500 cities worldwide.
With Weather Center, users select a home city as well as up to five additional preset cities. These preferences are saved. Then, updating occurs with the tap of a button. Seconds later, a seven-day forecast overview, coupled with current weather conditions, is downloaded to the device and remains there until the program is updated again.
