Dear Enthusiasts!

It's been a while since the last blog post. Over the past few weeks, I have been working tirelessly to collect feedback, prioritize the most requested features, and develop a selection of them.

First and foremost, I would like to thank all of you who have sent me feedback either through the feedback board or the in-app feedback form. I really appreciate how engaged you are and that you help to make Sonuby better.

I'm very happy to announce that version 1.1.0 is now available on the App Store and Google Play Store.

Here is what you can expect.

What's New

The first major version since the release of Sonuby includes the two most requested features as well as many improvements and bug fixes.

 

Dark Mode

By far the most requested feature on Sonuby’s Feeback Board was Dark Mode. As an Enthusiast subscriber, you can now switch between the light standard design and a beautiful dark design. If your device is already set to dark mode system-wide, you don't need to do anything. Sonuby will automatically detect the setting and switch to dark mode. You can also switch between light and dark design manually via the app settings.

If you are not yet an Enthusiast subscriber, you can try the subscription for three days (monthly subscription) or seven days (annual subscription).

Also, this month you can get a 50 percent discount on the annual subscription by using the coupon code XMAS. This can be redeemed within the app.

Forecast Accuracy Indicators

A feature requested by many meteoblue fans was the display of forecast accuracy in the 7-day forecast. From now on, you will see five dots next to the day's date that change color depending on how accurate the forecast is for that day.

Renaming locations - Now Free

You can now rename locations as a free user.

Skydiving Weather Report Improved

Based on numerous feedback to my post in /r/SkyDiving/ (Reddit), I have made the following adjustments to the skydiving weather report:

Nowcast:

  • Air pressure has been moved to extended mode as it is irrelevant for many skydivers.

Daily forecast:

  • Wind direction is now displayed with arrows by default, wind barbs can still be enabled via the module settings
  • The altitude meteogram for wind and temperature has been reduced to the most relevant jumping heights, the full altitude meteogram can be enabled via the module settings
  • UV index has been moved to extended mode as it is irrelevant for many skydivers

Other Improvements

  • Wind is now displayed everywhere with wind arrows, wind barbs can still be enabled via the module settings
  • Precipitation in 7-day forecast is now split into rain and/or snow
  • Increased the contrast of light design in some places to improve readability

Bug Fixes

  • Windbarbs now point in the right direction
  • Fixed meteograms to correctly display larger amounts of snow

 

I would be very happy if you would rate Sonuby in the App Store or give me feedback via the Sonuby Feedback Board if something is missing or not working. This would help me a lot in developing the app. Thank you for using Sonuby!
