WeatherBug is seeking Android users who are interested in testing out the latest, most cutting edge version of the WeatherBug software for the Android platform. Remember though, this article is talking about a testing release and it’s not available from the Android Marketplace. The main thing WeatherBug is interested in testing is app stability, performance and other related issues. If everything is working great, then fantastic! If on the other hand, there are some challenges experienced during your tests with this pre-release, then please share them with me at MHartley(at)WeatherBug.com so I can make sure the WeatherBug development team is aware of anything new discovered on your end.
