    I was dissapointed to find out that the official Weather.app doesn't remember the last weather that was loaded. I use my touch like a portable mac, and wipped it out today when someone asked about the weather. Unfortuanitly I was no where near wifi access, and the weather app said it couldn't connected.

    When I open Stocks, or Maps, those come up with the last data, but weather doesn't. Is there another weather app out there with offline mode? This is very much needed.

    Weather sometimes stays with the last data and at the bottom says Update failed although it seems picky :/

    Suppose its used to being connected all the time

    as i understand it he is not asking to get live data while being offline... he just wants the old data to be remembered when he is not online anymore...

    Well to me he asked for a wheather app with offline mode and that seems dumb to me, but try reinstalling the app if you dont get the latest update

    he wants it to come up the same as he used it last time like maps stays in the same place so you can still view the map without wifi acess but you cant refresh

    he wants to see the weather forecast when he doesnt have his wifi acess

    workaround, not optimal


    Yeah, it's too bad it doesn't store the last forecast, but here's a workaround, though obviously it's not optimal.

    Take a screenshot (an installer app) of the weather forecast, then view it and mail it to yourself (when you have wifi). I use gmail. Make sure your mail setting is set to save the emails that you send. You can view your gmail offline (w/o wifi). Offline, the "Inbox" email doesn't show the forecast, but the "Sent" email does show it.
