But McTraveller answers that question and many more including "What's the weather like over there?" and "How many Peseta for a Dollar?" While CityTime seems great for finding out what time it is in other locales while you're at home, McTraveller seems better suited for those who are actually in a different country. Here's the description we received, follow the link for (poorly downsampled) screenshots.<br /><br />"Superior World Weather for 56,000 cities worldwide. 2 day & 5 day forecasts can be received.

I've got some better quality screenshots up here (http://www.jenneth.info/archives/000248.html). This program looks awesome - I can't wait till it's released! :multi:

Looks like a very nice application. I'd venture to say this will be a must have for frequent travelers.
