I've had my Touch for 24-hours and I have to admit that my first venture into touch phones is both cool and frustrating. Cool: we only saw this type of technology on The Jestons and Star Trek when we were kids. Frustrating: typical Verizon lock-down.
I've been reading posts on hacking for a couple of hours now, but none have shown how to d/l and pay for an app that is not available for the Touch. I want the My-Cast we had on our standard LG phones (verizon) the last few years. It was quick and the clear radar could zoom right down to our county. Weatherbug can only zoom down to 3/4 of Texas and has very little contrast, making it difficult to view in sunlight, even on the big external screen.
Yes, I want to pay for the app, not pirate it. Truth be known, $2.99/month is cheap insurance against losing a $6,000 hay field in a single afternoon. We have 5 months to make an entire year's income, so having precise weather coverage on our phones is mandatory.
I reason that it isn't piracy if I'm paying for the app. It's just that I'm paying for an app Verizon won't let me have. Of course, will the computers in accounting flag it because it doesn't go on the Touch?
Thanks for your help.
