Because of my concern for the viability of MonoTouch for App Store apps, I’ve rewritten Ina Ruwa in Objective-C. That’s why there’s been no updates for so long.

Ina Ruwa has been renamed “Ina Ruwa Free Weather” and has been upgraded to support fast app switching when using iOS 4. Advertising will come from Apple’s iAd network in place of AdMob’s ad network.

Coming soon is a paid version, “Ina Ruwa Premium Weather.” As submitted to Apple, the premium app provides the following additional features:

  • No ads,
  • Can import your list of cities from Ina Ruwa Free Weather so you don’t have to reenter them, and
  • Choose between graphing actual or AccuWeather’s Real Feel temperature.

I’ve lots more features planned for the paid version, but I wanted to get something out there ASAP. If you have a special request, please let me know.

Both the free and premium versions were submitted to Apple for review yesterday.
