About Sunshine Weather Deep Blue
Sunshine Weather App Deep Blue (Updated 12/10/2015):
Sunshine Deep Blue is a weather Android application. It is simple, quick, modern, minimal, and up to date with Google's current Material Design and Android development standards. This version of the application is the deep blue color theme.
Supports 7" and 10" Android tablet sizes as well as Android smartphones in multiple densities and resolution.
Search locally or internationally by zip code, city, or country (including most abbreviations).
Open Google Maps at your defined location.
Share the weather from your location upon a click (or two...).
**Important** - Use the settings button to change location, for weather conversions, and to turn notifications on and off.
*** The settings/menu button will allow you to change temperatures between Celsius and Fahrenheit. ***
This application is written in conjunction with Udacity's: Developing Android Applications. This course is meant to cover all of the fundamentals and building blocks of Android Development as well as the use of java and xml. This course has a recommended time period of 8-10 weeks.
Those of you looking to familiarize yourself with all of the fundamentals in Android Application Development, please visit Udacity's course catalog at
and search for "Developing Android Apps". Designed and instructed by software/mobile developers, designers, and engineers, all of which are current employees at Google.
May the weather be perfect for you!

***** Calculation/conversion problem on Landscape and Portrait mode for 7" tablet(Verizon Ellipsis 7).
**** Landscape mode is not turning for Nexus 10 tablet on Emulator. I haven't tested on an actual Android device yet.
*** Upon entering null or " " into location search field, a crash upon startup will follow. Please re-install to solve issue.
* Google Map Location pulls up location south-east of actual location in long, lat, which was pulled from openweathermap.org. Please kill application and restart. If that does not resolve issue, Please re-install to solve the issue.
* Application syncs upon a frequent dynamic timer. This sometimes makes the application update a few moments after the initial request. Previous data is stored in a local database and called upon the application starting until a sync is available or made.
