Default Weather Forecast for your iPod

The iPod gets more and more functionality that only PDA and mobiles have at this time. Today it is a straightforward weather forecast which can be updated every time the iPod is connected to the computer that is running the weather for me software. Using weather for me is actually pretty simple. After you have downloaded the software you have to enter your name and email (or fake ones).

After that you have to configure weather for me by adding the city that you want the weather forecast for and some other settings. You can choose between English and Metric units and opt to save the forecasts. You will have to supply a city code to the program which can be obtained by visiting the my forecast website and entering the city of your choice. Every city has a code in its url that starts with city= ; the number behind that is the city code which needs to be added to weather for me.

The last step would be to click on the button download weather now to my ipod which will download and add the weather information to your iPod. Weather for me has a autosync option which is a command line parameter. To be able to autosync the iPod with the latest forecasts you have to create a shortcut of the file and add the parameter -sync to it. You still need to add it to the autostart of windows to be able to do it automatically.
