SBSH has been making software for Windows Mobile devices for years, and one of the company’s most popular offerings in SBSH PocketWeather, which sells for $14.95. Now SBSH is offering a version of PocketWeather for the iPhone, and best of all it’s free (although you’ll have to pay if you want to remove the advertisements).

The iPhone version of PocketWeather automatically detects your location and pulls down detailed weather information including current conditions and forecasts. You can also use the Graph feature to see the week’s highs and lows at a glance, or look at historical data by plotting average temperatures for each month of the year.

The maps tab gives you a couple of different ways to check out weather conditions on a map. You can see a Google Map with buttons for various weather stations in your region. You can click the Earthquakes tab to see recent activity around the globe. And you can check out recent weather images with somewhat detailed, but not all that interactive data including satellite imagery and storm and flood warnings.

SBSH PocketWeather is available as a free download from the App Store. You can find some more screenshots after the break.
