Spot Requests of the Last 2 Weeks

I'm pretty regularly confirming all of the spot requests i get about once a week.  In the last 2 wweks I have been extra busy, so havn't been able to add the spots you have requested into the app.

I'm gonna get back on it tomorrow with adding in the 120 request I've now got to get through :)

If anyone's interested in helping me moderate these (has some spare time/is a student + good with google maps),  let me know, this isn't a profitable project, so there's no money in it.  but hey, I'm just throwing it out their.  Drop me an email at sj@windfreak.org

Cheers and Sorry about the delay with the spots

EDIT: Woke up at 4:30am, did 100 Spots this morning, 80 more to go tomorrow morning :)

European users Fix v1.5.2

It turns out that a lot of mainland Europeans were experiencing a crash on the forecast page, This has now been fixed, and if you update WindFreak to version 1.5.2, it should work. WindFreak v1.5.2

Technical details:
I parse the windStrength (String) to windStrength (float), floats don;t work with commas.

For European users the windStrength (String) would contain a ',' instead of a '.'

UK = windStrength (String) = 23.5
EU = windStrength (String) = 23,5

I've mitigated against this now by replacing commas, seems to have done the trick.

Check out the update for the fix!!
