Weathercloud Beta 8 Now Available
Today we’re excited to announce the release of Beta 8!
Our latest version comes with some important new features to make Weathercloud even better, including map layers, the ability to upgrade to Pro and Business via in-app purchase, an improved API and several other minor enhancements and bug fixes. Read on to discover what’s new:
Beta 8 makes the Weathercloud Map much more useful and interesting than ever before, as you can now easily switch between up to 7 different layers, including devices (classic view), wind speed, temperature, humidity, rain, solar radiation and UV index, with the latter two also showing day and night zones in real time. You can also hover over the map to quickly compare current data from different stations.
Thinking about upgrading to the Pro or Business plan? In Beta 8 the process is really simple and will just take you a couple minutes. All you need to do is choose the plan that best suits your needs, enter the number of devices you wish to upgrade and checkout. You no longer need to contact our Support team to upgrade.
Our API for receiving data has been completely rewritten in order to enhance performance and to make it as stable as possible for better scalability in the future. If you are a developer, you don’t need to do any changes to your software or application.
Other minor enhancements and bug fixes
- Added Show on Map button to the Devices page for quick access to both your devices and the devices you follow on the Map page.
- Added online status indicator for the devices you follow.
- Added Beaufort scale to the Business dashboard.
- Replaced daily rainfall with the rain of the last 24 hours in the Business dashboard.
- Added Pro Weather Link and Weather Tool to supported weather software.
- Added new Fine Offset WT Series to supported devices.
- Updated the instructions for sending data via WeatherLink Network.
- Wind rose diagrams now display the message ‘Not enough data to display the graph’ instead of wrong data if there is no data of average wind speed and/or average wind direction.
- Solved a bug in the Twitter feature that prevented the decimal of temperature from being displayed when it is zero.
We hope you enjoy the new features included in Beta 8 and we look forward to your comments and suggestions.
Thank you for your continued support and stay tuned for more to come!
This is great except you do not tells us which plans get which new features and you do not tell us how to get this. There is no way that I can find that let me know which version of WC I am running? When will the IOS App be ready?
Hi Ed, since Weathercloud is an online platform you’re always automatically using the latest version. The current version is indicated at the bottom right corner of the footer. The features that we add in each new version are available to everyone unless we indicate otherwise on our blog. You can check out our Plans page for detailed information about the features included in each plan.
OK – so why not just say that it’s “running” rather than “Now available” ?
Hi there great effort, but can you let us know when iOS app and GooglePlay app wil be – finally – ready?? Thanks.
Can I help you to test the andriod app as a beta tester?
Who is allowed to use your rest api in order to upload weather data to the WeatherCloud system? As my weather station is not on your list of supported brands I have developed a piece of software of my own, and I’m now using it sucessfully for uploading data to the UK MetOffice database. Is it possible to do the same thing within WeatherCloud? Where can I find dokumentation about the api?
Hi Björn. Yes, you can use our API to upload your weather data to our platform through your own software. Please get in touch with our Support team for more details. Thanks!
Hello Weathercloud Team,
is it possible to use your API for an automatic download from weather station data nearby my home?
Hi Felix, we are sorry to inform you that we currently do not have an API to get data from the site.
Your system is not sending me an email to get keys after I sign up, I am signed up, but I can’t move forward in the process. It is not in spam folder
Hi Brian, thank you for your interest in Weathercloud. We have activated your user account and you can now sign in with your credentials. Regards.
Hi, In Beta8 the Evolution graph for wind direction is empty but the wind direction shows on the gauge display in Current although the average wind direction is grayed out. The same data displays correctly in Wunderground. Ideas?
Hi Collin, the third-party desktop weather software or mobile app that you use to upload data to Weathercloud must to send average wind direction so that we can display the corresponding gauge and the graph for wind direction.
How do I get stickers from stations that don’t belong to me? (for use by an amateur association) I need to take a PRO account? Thank you.
Hello tobyportugal, you can right-click on the sticker of your interest and copy its URL.
Hello, I am have a weathercloud account and have linked my Bresser station to your site. Your site gives me what I was looking for but I am not able to see my wind speed data on the site, I can see it on the station which I have linked but weathercloud does not show my wind s[eed. Can you help please?
Hi Rick, thank you for joining Weathercloud. We just checked and your station Wick Farm 1 is displaying wind speed on our site.
Hi, is there a way to get access to the api to grab personnal registered weather station ?
Hi Franck, the API to extract data is currently not available but we plan to release it in a future update.
Hello! May I use the rest API to get data from any station? I have no device, so I can’t upload data, but I’m interested about the weather near home and this site is really nice and helpful. Is it possible? Thank you.
Sorry, I’ve just read the reply to the last comment. But I wonder if users without any device will be able to get data from one or two stations…. Thank you again!
Hi Fernando, the API to access data is planned for the station owners.
When you plan to deploy API data access for the station owners? I need to put my current station data on my site (WordPress driven).. And will be glad to continue using Weathercloud instead of migrating to the other service.. Thanks in advance for reply…
Hi Georgi, the API to access data is in our plans and will be released as soon as possible. We move at our own pace to ensure that the growth of the network is sustainable.
Hello guys, did you have a chance to develop API which allows to get access to personal registered weather station? I see previous comments that is was in your plan but I do not see this.
Hi R., we are sorry to inform you that the API to get data from the site is not available at the moment.
Hello! Will the API ever be available?
Hi Alex, yes, the API to get data is in our plans and we expect it to be available this year.
Any idea on date to release the API in 2023 please?
Hi David, the release of the API is planned for the end of this year.
