Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day.

Weather4Me app for Windows Phone 7
Heres another interesting weather application for your Windows Phone 7. XDA member s_v_l presents Weather4Me, which takes information from AccuWeather and is optimized for high traffic usage. A single weather query takes near 15K data and because of that, the app is very fast and responsive. The latest version features detailed current weather conditions for a particular selected city, today weather information, up to 5 days forecast information, English or metric units support, and data refreshing on startup. You can see actual weather, degree of cloudiness, temperature divided into real and perceived, humidity, and pressure.
The application can be found for free and with no ads on the market.
As always, we encourage you to leave your feedback.
