Will It Be Sunny Or Not Find Out With Kweather

hI have released  a new application  called Kweather  a weather application for over 200.000 locations around the world.

It gives the current and forecast weather for a 24 hour period with choices for imperial and metric measurements.

One point  to note  I think the times are GMT but I could  be mistaken,  as I’m  in England  the server could  be delivering  the times  as UK time.

It requires Wget  a working internet connection and an API key from the Open Weather  website.

Elections Comes To MPdata+

My UK  Member of Parliament  application MPdata+ has been  updated  with upcoming elections in your area.

A new window opens with the date time and what type of election it is, with buttons for more information which takes you to Who Can I Vote For site, the other button downloads the .ics file.

The data comes from Who Can I Vote For site in a .ics file.

This is my first .ics file conversation so I’m interested in locations that break the new feature.
