Home Weather Center 1.6
Lightsoft announced its Home Weather Center (HWC) 1.6 for OS X. HWC is a weather graphing, monitoring, and analysis application designed as a virtual weather station that utilizes Internet-based weather sources rather than hardware-based sensors. As data is gathered and stored in its database HWC allows the user to view weather statistics such as the lowest temperature or the highest wind speed over any time period stored in the database. In addition HWC contains a journal for weather notes and can generate web pages containing current conditions. The Universal binary version now features new preferences, a re-write of the Wunderground Personal Weather Station decoder, fixed bugs and crashes, a fixed memory leak, updated documentation, the ability to view the source data for a location from a button in the "Advanced" preference pane, and more. Home Weather Center requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and costs $35.
