    It's a beautiful looking app. Do you have a screen shot of the forecast page?

    Does it require the iPhone 4 or will it work on the 3GS?

    I answered my own question - it works beautifully on the 3GS. Truly awesome. Until I get used to it, I'll probably check the weather every hour or so just to look.

    katra - any plans to incorporate these icons into a full weathericon retina theme? They're gorgeous.

    Very good looking but from my perspective I find the program a bit too inconvenient. I like to launch the app and get a nice snapshot overview of weather now and to come, for the day (broken down into timed segments) and week ahead. HD 4Cast gives an admittedly gorgeous screen of weather now and then swiping gives further screens of days ahead. I'd prefer to see more segmentation of time for day ahead as well as week ahead without having to continually click through. WeatherPro is my current app of choice and provides the info in a much better summary format. But granted it doesn't look as nice. However I'm not after just good looks; info has to be the prime factor. Hence I'll be keeping it rather than 4Cast.

    That said, I'll repeat HD 4Cast does look very good. Well done.

    Hello OP, beautiful images, love it!

    Can I ask what program you used to create the HD images? I'm not a graphics designer like you :( but trying to learn! Thanks!

    Downloaded this yesterday afternoon after reading this thread.

    This really is a beautifully done app. Can't wait for future updates.

    One small gripe though....the weather alerts could sure use some work. Telling me there is an alert really isn't all that helpful when you don't give access to the details of the alert. I had to go open another weather app to figure out what the circumstances were.
