Nowhere near as good as the iphone version

Dave (**)
Poor UI... is this really coded by Noser Engineering?! No joke?

Stravag (**)
Very ugly and poor userinterface. Rather use the website for weather and places to search

stefan (**)
Weather is useful. App is ugly and very poorly implemented.

Andrea (*****)
Great app! I hope that more features are still to come like public transportation as featured in IPhone. Btw: Local.ch is buggy for android 2.1
