* The user will choose the location - country and city - worldwide, and have more than one location be viewable if chosen.
* The app will be accessed (after installation) from the windows taskbar via a taskbar icon, whereas 1 click on the taskbar icon will show a small window with the current weather, additional click on the small window shall open a bigger window with a 5 days weather forecast at the center of the screen (the user may choose a full screen display option, and minimized display).
* User friendly interface and attractive design - similar (but not identical of course!) to the following weather app - [url removed, login to view]
