Manila JVH3 Weather City Editor Updated
It´s a common problem on Manila/Sense Weather that sometimes we can´t add our city or we get some updating problems over 3G/EDGE/GPRS/WIFI. XDA member JVH3 just updated this useful tool to fix these problems. Now, the app supports more ROMs and sports new icons, just to mention some of the new features.
