One of the first things many of us do when we check our phones of a morning is check the weather. A new module on crowdfunding site IndieGoGo will now give you instant access to local weather data on your phone.

Called WeatherAtPoint BLE, the keychain sized Bluetooth weather station is the second generation device from MindLabSolution. Their first generation connected to your 3.5mm headphone jack on the phone, but with that jack now gone for most phones they’ve re-tooled and moved to a wireless solution.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
