[prMac.com] Madison, WI - MyWeather, an industry-leading developer of digital weather and traffic content, has announced the release of MyWeather Mobile 1.1, and update to their comprehensive weather application for iPhone and iPod Touch. Since its initial release to the App Store on July 9th, MyWeather Mobile has built a loyal following with over 125 five-star customer ratings. These users have been instrumental in providing valuable feedback to MyWeather, who has responded with Version 1.1, a new release that incorporates significant changes.
Key New Features:
* New Current Conditions: In addition to temperature, MyWeather Mobile's current conditions screen now includes precipitation total, humidity, barometric pressure, dew point, wind chill and wind speed.
