GOOGLE PLAY DESCRIPTION
Arcus hyper-local weather forecasts gives you the most precise up to the minute weather forecast available.

"Heavy rain starting in 4 minutes, for the next 35 minutes".

Arcus uses the Forecast.io API to get the most accurate, and most current weather information.

"Forecast.io is backed by a wide range of data sources, which are aggregated together statistically to provide the most accurate forecast possible for a given location."

Features include:

- Homescreen widget with customizable data points
- Fully usable without location services
- Notification Bar Weather
- Severe weather alerts
- Vibrate for precipitation
- Radar Map (US ONLY)

Pro Features available via In-App Purchases:
- No Ads
- Up to 10 Custom Locations (free version - 2)
- Widget Interval Options (free version ~ 4 hours)
- Touch to refresh from widget

***Disclaimer***
Due to way too many negative reviews in regards to the following, I have to show this unsightly section.

Please note that Arcus DOES NOT do the following:

- Radar outside the US. Once I find a provider that doesn't charge an arm and 3 legs, I will definitely implement this.
- Animated Radar. This is coming soon. Full disclosure, it will be available via in-app purchase, because things cost money unfortunately.
- Down to the minute forecasts outside of the US and UK.

If you install this app in hopes of the aforementioned features, I'm not sure what to say.
Don't be the person who gets mad that Thor was not in the last Captain America movie, because you know, nobody said he would be there.

***Back to things that matter about Arcus***


Notes:
- This is not an official port from the Dark Sky company. Please visit http://forecast.io for the official web version. There's even an android version now.
- Based on the concept and implementation of the service, this app works best with GPS enabled, or latitude/longitude for a particular location.
- Please note that 'up to the minute' weather conditions are only available in certain countries.
