You can have mete☼4me display the units you prefer. Select "Settings" on your iPhone, and then mete☼4me. Temperature can be displayed in °C or °F, distance and altitudes in metric or imperial units. For more information on settings see the bottom of this page.
|When you launch mete☼4me for the first time, a map with a few predefined places is shown. The mete☼4me weather forecast are shown in four different ways that complement each other. |
MAP: All your selected places appear on the map with an icon that shows the day's weather forecast with high and low temperatures. Pan and zoom the map to see the places you want. Move the day slider at the bottom of the screen to see the weather changing day-by-day. Tap an icon; it will expand and show its place's name. Tap it again and it will revert to its compact form. Tap the '>' in the expanded icon to navigate to the DAY OVERVIEW or METEOGRAM pages of that place and day.
WEEK OVERVIEW: This is a day-by-day overview of the weather forecast for all your places for the six coming days. For each place there is a row of seven weather icons, one for each day of the week. You can swipe up and down the list if not all your places fit on one page. Tap any weather icon to navigate to the DAY OVERVIEW or METEOGRAM pages of that place and day.
DAY OVERVIEW: The forecast for one day is shown for the current place, including the rainSP☼T. Use the hour slider below the center of the screen to run through the forecast hour-by-hour. Move this slider to its rightmost position to see a summary display for the day. Use the day slider at the bottom of the screen to run through the forecasts day by day. You can return to the MAP page by pressing the BACK button at the top left of the screen. Or, tap the graph icon at the top center right to navigate to the METEOGRAM page.
METEOGRAM: The main forecast parameters (temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, and wind) are shown as curves or icons on a meteogram. Use the slider at the bottom of the screen to run through the forecast day by day. Alternatively, swipe the meteogram to the left or right to navigate from day to day. You can return to the MAP with the BACK button, or go to the DAY OVERVIEW pressing the sun icon at the top.
PLACE LIST: This is the page where you manage your places as you manage lists in any other iPhone application. Search for a predefined place, add a place, change the order in which places appear on the WEEK OVERVIEW page, change the name of a place, or delete a place.
General information about mete☼4me can be found in the information page (i), where a link to these help pages (?) is available.
|You can add forecast locations in mete☼4me in three ways, two of which work on the MAP screen (the third is available on the WEEK OVERVIEW page).|
Locate Me: To get the weather forecast for where you are right now, just tap the Locate Me button in the upper left corner. The iPhone pans the map such that your position is at the center and markes it. Tap '+' at the top of the screen and then 'Done' to save your position as a new place on your place list. meteo4me checks its database to see if your position corresponds to a predefined place. If this is the case, meteo4me stores that place in your place list; otherwise, it creates a new place and calls it "Unknown". You can change that name on the PLACE LIST page. This function works wherever you have GPS reception - in any place of the earth.
Define your own place: To get the weather forecast for any location on land or water, pan and zoom the map to show the desired location at the center of the screen. Tap '+'. A pin will mark the center. Tap-hold-drag the pin until it is exactly where you want it. meteo4me checks its database to see if the pin's position corresponds to a predefined place. If this is the case, meteo4me labels the pin with that place name; otherwise, it labels the pin with "Unknown". Tap-hold-drag the pin to a different place if needed. Tap 'Done'. meteo4me stores the place in your place list, loads its weather forecast, and display it on the map.
|The WEEK OVERVIEW page shows the weather development at all your places during the next six days. If the places are in very different time zones from where you currently are, some places may show only five days of forecasts because the day may have already ended in the early time zones.|
Tap '+' to add one of five million predefined places. The SEARCH page appears. On the search screen select the country in which to search and type the place's name, or part of its name. A list of places will appear if more than one place name matches your search. Select the place you want. meteo4me adds the selected place to your place list and displays it at the top of the WEEK OVERVIEW page. Please note that the number of locations is limited to 20.
To change the order in which your places are shown, to change one of your place names, or to delete one of your places, tap 'Edit' (the pencil button) at the top left. This opens the PLACE LIST page that works in the standard iPhone way.
|The DAY OVERVIEW page shows you the hourly forecast for one day. The name and altitude of the current place are shown at the top. The day's overall weather of the day is indicated with an icon on the left. Below the icon date, minimum and maximum temperatures, probability of precipitation (PoP), and maximum speed of wind gusts are given.|
To the right rainSP☼T shows you a small map with expected precipitation intensity levels at and around the current place.
Tap the graph icon at the top to navigate to the METEOGRAM page. To go back to the WEEK OVERVIEW page tap the back arrow a the top left.
|The METEOGRAM page shows hourly forecast data as a set of icons and curves. Name and altitude of the current place are shown at the top, with the date given below. The following 2 lines show the minimum and maximum temperatures (in red) and the probability of precipitation (PoP) in grey. |
The upper diagram panel shows low, middle, and high cloud cover (icons), intensity and type of precipitation (icons), temperature (red curve), and probability of precipitation (grey curve) in hourly intervals.
The lower diagram panel shows the wind direction (arrows), speed (light blue curve), and wind gust speed (blue curve).
