    Following up on the Vita Net Profile Check utility recently released by developer @Joel16, the dev has another project that he was working on is the latest entries to the GekiHEN Contest that is entry date expires at the end of today (EST Time) which a live counter can be seen in our forums for a precise time. VITAForecast as developer Joel16 gave psx-place members a sneak peak a couple days ago, this weather app is now released, digging its weather info from and brings the data in this HENkaku homebrew for both the PS Vita and PlayStation TV devices.

      VITAforecast is a weather application that determines the current weather in your area (provided a zip code, and country code. -> example 07009, us). This application makes use of a free weather service API offered from, and parses the data to extract relevant details.​

      Current features include:
      • Current temperature (Including minimum and max on current day), in both degrees C/F.
      • Short description on current atmospheric condition.
      • Humidity
      • Cloudiness
      • Wind speed in both km/h or mph.
      • Atmospheric pressure.
      • 5 day forecast (Future update - considering how well this goes)

    • Note:
      • Please enter your zip code correctly and use common letters only. For example (Use without quotations): Format: "zipcode,id"
      "wv1,gb" = Wolverhampton, UK
      "07001,us" = Avenel, US
      "169-0072,jp" = Tōkyō-to, JP
      "75008,fr" = Palais-Royal, FR​

      • The biggest font appears rather smooth-en-ed out. This is a problem with the graphics library, and something that I cannot control. However, this is just the initial release, so expect the overall quality of the program to improve in the coming updates.

    • Controls:
      • Square: Re-enter zip code and ID.
      • Start: Exit app.
      • Triangle: Refresh data (although it already does this in the background).

    Download: via GekiHEN website
