*THIS APP ONLY WORKS FOR MELBOURNE AND SYDNEY*
Please don't leave 1 star reviews just because the app doesnt provide the weather for the rest of Australia, when it is entirely the Bureau of Meteorology's fault.

A simple application that displays the weather forecast using data from (and copyright of) Australia's Bureau of Meteorology (BOM).

Note: This app only currently works for Melbourne and Sydney, entirely due to the way data is data from the BOM. If anyone wants to help extend it to other cities get in touch!

Whats new

    * Added the day of the week to the date display
    * Updated so that the data is re-processed only if necessary (so when you change preferences it wont take forever anymore!)
    *Major re-write coming soon (I hope) to make it more responsive.

requests Great app, Request: background color and text color options, and custom size for each text aspect (large date) & enable "MOVE TO SD" & if you could make this into a full screen widget =D THANKS FOR THE APP

Boring and basic App is too basic and boring. I get more out of the stardard boring app already installed on the phone. Get some skills. Shame i cant score 0.

A Google User

This is perfect, thank you!! Ever since they changed their website, I've been looking for something that makes the bom data available in an app!

A Google User

Thanks but braindead formatting. I don't want to read "Short description" over and over again. D'oh!

A Google User

Good for Melbourne weather. No widget. Plain text output. A bit uninteresting but works well most of the time. Would rate higher as a widget.

A Google User

Excellent app 12 out of 10 one star wonders need to read the description before rating

A Google User

Great! Looks like crap but who cares? Does the job perfectly with the only exception is that it needs to display the current temperature

A Google User

Plain text only - get with the GUI program Need some formatting and display finesse to make it easy to quickly focus on what is important. As it is, everything has to be read.

A Google User

Very good text based weather. Needs more cities though

Kevin Howard

Best weather app So long as you live in Melbourne or Sydney :)

A Google User

Good app. Wish it had a little picture summary at the top though.

A Google User

bom wx nice app doeswhat it says it will do.

A Google User

Nice Does exactly what it claims. Confirms that melb will be stormy today whereas the standard GS2 app says sunny!

A Google User

It tells you the weather, but presents it as one big lump of text.

A Google User

Simple and clean. Does exactly what it says and no time wasting "extras".

A Google User

Simple & perfect Pretty simple but all I really want to know re forecasts. Saves fiddling around on the BoM web site.

A Google User

Very accurate weather and very simple to use. Love it :)

A Google User

:) Simple and informative. Very good!

A Google User

Can get more data from BOM website. App needs a lot more development.

A Google User

Not bad No problem with the information provided...just needs a nicer interface and maybe a widget to compete with other apps out there.

A Google User

100% Simple, factual, minus bloat & crap. Pity other apps, cant say the same?

A Google User

Just a text web page feel Would of expected weather radar etc.

A Google User

Love the app ... it doesn't come with any fancy graphics but it works well

A Google User

Since it removed forecast temps for all around Sydney its useless unless your in the middle of the city, bad bad move developer...

A Google User

Great app! Does what it says; it's silly that people are complaining that it doesn't show their city - it tells you that!

A Google User

Exactly what I needed. Great app and update.

A Google User

Great simple app to get text weather description from the Aussie BOM

A Google User

Nice and simple app. Gives the information needed

A Google User

Great app, all you need with no waste No bells and whistles, does everything you need it to without all the added junk that no one knows.

A Google User

Stops working after 7 pm every day, otherwise simple and concise

A Google User

Finally a app that works! 7 day forecast for Melb/Syd, great well done, get this.

A Google User

Great to have an app that retrieves accurate forecasts. Requests: 1. Ability to config update frequency. 2. Current temp widget. 3. Forecast widget.

A Google User

Please add perth. Till then won't be using it.

A Google User

Does what its supposed to. Thank you.

A Google User

Simple and to the point, no frills. Fine in my books.

A Google User

Simple and effective. Does just what I need without unnecessary extras.

A Google User

Awesome app Not the best interface, but does what it meant to deliver..

A Google User

Can only get Melbourne weather :| even being in Sydney...

A Google User

Love the fact it uses true BOM data. But the interface is butt ugly. I hope further versions are coming. Thanks

growfin

Excellent. Would be perfect if you also pulled the U.V index for the current day, just like the website. This app is much easier than having to save bom forecast web link to your home screen, and resizing the web page each time! Thanks

A Google User

I'm sure it's accurate but looks very unprofessional the way it's presented. Shame - was expecting much better from BOM

A Google User

Often has trouble parsing data. When it works its great.

Sebastian Puciłowski

Does one thing and does it well: follows unix philosophy.

A Google User

Only Melbourne or Sydney...eastern states crap

A Google User

Wonky One star is too much

A Google User

FAIL FAIL FAIL. Only Sydney & Melbourne.

A Google User

I will leave 1 star BECAUSE bom is where ALL of australia's weather comes from & it can be viewed!
