    I stumbled upon Shine weather app ($0.99) through Daring Fireball. I must say, it is incredibly fast with a sensible UI that is very Tapbots like.

    The app aims to provide only the most crucial information: temperature, rain probability, and wind speed for 7 days (and 3-hour increment for next 3 days). No Doppler radar, wind direction, visibility, rainfall, feels like temperature, UV, humidity (although I would much appreciate feels like temperature, UV, and humidity).

    The app isn't quite there yet, but author promises lot more to come in the near future. Some of the most notable missing features include:
    • Weak international cities (very few international cities and no extended forecast for those supported)
    • 10+ days extended forecast
    • iPad universal
    • Cannot re-arrange entered cities (and no way of resolving of ambiguous city names, such as Springfield)

    What happened to this app? I get "weather request failed" on it's UI and it's no longer in the app store that I can see. Abandonware?
