Meet Timer.Coffee 2.0!

I’ve made a ton of internal changes that have allowed me to introduce some cool new features, such as:
- Updating the recipes without needing to update the entire app.
- Brew Diary, which allows you to track your brews, add notes, and more.
- 5 new languages added: Italian, Dutch, Turkish, Romanian and Ukrainian.

This is just the beginning — more awesome updates are on the way! Thank you for being a part of this journey.

Version 2.0.1 fixes a little bug related to loading the steps for recipe in a correct order. Tnahks @robertkb for pointing it out!

Latest update notes

• Fixed a few bugs on the Map tab.
• Added fishing coordinates for New York.

Hope you enjoy the updates. Suggestions, questions, feedback, or bug reports are always welcome at contact@tidespro.com

Latest update notes

Reliability improvements, especially for cases of getting and expiring the subscription.
Previous emergency update fixes app freezes on app start on Apple Watch and a random crash during background update. These issues were the result of an unfortunate oversight during larger under-the-hood changes. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused - thanks!

Made the purchasing & product restoring process more reliable (usually Weathergraph should pick up your purchases without a need for a manual restore).

SKY BACKGROUND: Enjoy the full-color background matching the sky at a current time of day. Tap the Skylight option in app and widget preferences, and you're in. Sky background is also available on the watch.

PREVIOUSLY:
The chart now loads much faster when you open the app. I've optimized it to only render the visible part initially, with the rest showing up afterwards. Result? Much snappier feeling.
Fixed a bug that caused widgets to update too frequently, which could result in the system temporarily disabling further widget updates.

Precipitation probability is now more visible on the skylight background.

High/low lock screen widget and watch complications now shows temperature high, low, and precipitation for the next 24 hours instead of today only.

RADAR AND CLIMATE
- NWS radar (for the US) or Windy.com (rest of the world) loads up with your actual location marked and centered.
- Weather Spark is a climate report service ran by enthusiasts, who love data visualization as much as I do. There is no better place on the internet to get the info about how are the Canaries in September. Weather Spark integration displays the closest point from the Weather Spark database (one is nearby).

MORE IMPROVEMENTS
- Weathergraph adds NWS (National Weather Service) forecast for all US based weather enthusiasts.
- Preferences now have their own screen on the watch, just like in the iPhone app.
- Weekly chart: You can now see a week at a glance below the main chart, both in the app and in the large widget. Tap the weekly chart to scroll directly to that time.
- Sun glow: As the murky autumn arrives, know when to look forward to a healthy dose of sun rays. The warm glow above the cloud layer highlights particularly sunny times.
- Smoother scrolling through the app and charts, especially on the older devices.
- Full-screen chart now allows you to scroll through more than a week (if the forecast is long enough).
- Wind lock screen widget uses the arrow for wind direction and circled icon when gusty.
- Brand-new sunrise/sunset complication and lock screen widget, that shows the next sun event (or tells you that you are in a polar day/night zone if you are that lucky).

Revamped watchOS 10 app
- Weathergraph now shines on the watch with a sleek new look! Pin Weathergraph's widgets to watchOS 10s Smart Stack, just a twist of a crown away from the watchface.
- Note: Due to a location permissions issue on watchOS 10, the app may not update your location automatically. Don't worry — just open Weathergraph on your iPhone, and it will sync the location to your watch.
