When will the IOS version be released? Any sense of when - It would be great if soon.

I just watched the video that Jo did, and I noticed the glitching she is experiencing - the white gridlines appearing and disappearing?! I had this come and go many a time, and wondered whether it was normal behaviour or whether it's the browser? Chrome has a rasterization bug that effects users with Nvidia graphics cards, so I wondered if it might be down to this? Chrome never seem to ever fix it though, and it's been going on for years.

I think Jo manually zooms here browser out a bit which is what causes it not to display cleanly sometimes.

Paul - getting the ios version out ahead of this cold snap would be very smart for NW - even if a few bugs still exist.

It's a process I'm afraid, will let you know as soon as it's available on the app store.

Should probably let whoever runs the Facebook page know that, then..

Well, sorry about that, as it's just not possible to say when it will be available. It's not in our control when it's released, it has to go to Apple, who review it, then it's released to the the app store when they're happy. That process can take a day, a few days, or it can take longer, and there's nothing we can do to speed it up.

      We've added a brand new feature to the weather radar on Netweather today, as well as the overlays for lightning and satellite images, you can now display live tweeted weather updates from twitter, making it the first social weather radar in the UK!
      If you're a twitter user, using one of the following hashtags (#ukice, #uksnow, #ukfog, #ukrain, #ukstorms) along with a postcode or geo-location info in your tweet will plot it onto the radar map so you can share weather updates for your location.

      This feature will also go live on the Netweather Extra radar tomorrow

      It's been a while since we had any major news about the radar, so I thought today would be a good time to share some with you..

      In short, although the V5 version of the radar is still fairly new and in it's final beta phase, we've decided to jump straight on to V6 and are currently working hard to put that in place. The new system will use the same mapping and zooms as V5 but will use newer technology to allow us to bring a number of new features - including many of the most requested ones from the feedback we've had on the V5 radar.

      I'll go into more detail on these new features and some of the other changes in the next few weeks (including a major announcement or two) but the one change I wanted to let you know about today is a change in our lightning detection on not just the radar but across the site.

      Very soon instead of our StrikeStar network we'll be changing across to use the ATD lightning detection system. Although StrikeStar has been great and provides a pretty accurate picture of lightning across the UK, we're always keen to improve what we can offer to our users and the natural progression is the ATD system which and gives even more accurate and sensitive strike detection.

      Stay tuned for further announcements and updates over the coming days and weeks, we're working really hard behind the scenes at the moment and are all really looking forward to bringing these new features and improvements online very soon!

      Paul
