    Is the 4cast pligin, used in 2Day, supposed to autoupdate (as set in Preferences in the 4cast standalone application)?

    I don't intend to keep the 4cast application running all the time on the Treo 650. Will the plug-in update the information in the background?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    No - 4cast does not do auto-update, it will just update automatically when you launch 4cast.

    Background/Automatic update may be implemented in the future, but will probably result in a higher price tag (due to the amount of work required).

    Same. Nothing more discouraging then going into a network app to get some info only to find that it has to sync to get what you want.

    If I understand it correctly, if the 4cast application is left running (in the foreground), it will auto-update.

    Am I right?

    Will it do that even if the Treo is asleep (powered off)?

    I cant imagine even the 'Weather obsessed' leaving their Treo's parked in 4Cast all the time. Still it is an app that I (and I'm sure many others) use regularily so it would be nice / great if it was sitting their waiting with the information we want when we arrive (eg. background sync).

    Count me in as well. I don't have a data plan with Verizon, so all of my data usage comes out of my minutes...which means that my heaviest usage is free nights & weekends. These free nights end at 5:59 A.M. As that's about the time I get up, I usually update 4cast the night before.

    I'd prefer more updated data, and would like to set 4cast to update every day at 5:30 A.M. and would gladly pay for this functionality.
