I’m noticing a number of crashes on the iPad version related to low memory, and crashes on both the iPad/iPhone to do with HTTP requests.
I submitted a new version to Apple yesterday that hopefully addresses these issues, but I am continuing to investigate.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
There were quite a few items I skipped to get v2.0 out into the wild, so I’ve quickly developed v2.1 to address some of the things missed. Coming soon:
iPhone and iPad
[NEW] Weather forecast popover/screen
[NEW] Special weather tip popover/screen
[FIX] Chinese fixes
[FIX] Memory usage improvements
[FIX] Bug fixes
[FIX] Fixed currency code on in-app purchase screen
[FIX] iPhone now rotates properly (still portrait only though)
[NEW] Rainfall and wind (speed, direction, gusts)
[NEW] Radar images are larger
[NEW] Added a legend popover for the radar screen
[NEW] Added time label to top of radar screen
[NEW] Removed Special Weather Tip from main menu
[FIX] Typhoon mode works for sat/radar, weather forecast, special tip, rain, wind
[FIX] Localised UV to Chinese
[FIX] Fixed TC track image width
[FIX] Reduced memory usage
[FIX] URL loading crasher
[FIX] In-app purchase product loading crasher
After months of work, HKWarnings v2.0 is now a Universal iPhone/iPod/iPad app and is now ready for download.
The iPad version shows the warnings, plus current weather, radar and satellite images and has links to other weather agency typhoon tracks. Click on the “Menu” button. And maybe on the “heart” icon?
IMPORTANT NOTE: HKWarnings now only runs on devices running iOS 5.0 or greater. If you are running iOS 4.x, iTunes will not let you upgrade, but if you have, for example, two devices, one running 5.0+ and one running 4.x, if you upgrade on the 5.0+ device, when you next sync your 4.x device, HKWarnings will be removed from the 4.x device. This is an iTunes ‘feature’ I’m afraid.
Other screenshots below. User guide coming soon…
Coming soon, a universal (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch) version of HKWarnings:

[Ignore the “make it crash button”, that’s just for testing]
