A new weather experience — A cool new app from The Beautiful Weather Corporation
With the holiday season upon us with shopping, parties, family visits we will likely be keeping a sharp eye on the weather. Well a new app from The Beautiful Weather Corporation may be just the ticket.
Beautiful Weather offers a whole bunch of ways to experience weather, from the unique Panorama View of the day’s weather as a pastoral landscape, to the World View of weather highlights on an interactive globe(warning: may cause wanderlust). Original music conveys weather conditions from soothing rain to glowing sunshine. In addition to standard functions like Day View, Forecast Details and Week View, you’ll find surprises like ‘This Day in History.
But it doesn’t stop there..for a $0.99 t0 $9.99 in-app purchase you can buy from a Month to a year of premium service that includes all the core features plus more detailed, hourly forecasts and panorama mode for seven days, and is visually enlivened with animations (weather conditions, animals in Panorama View), a real-time cloud layer in World View, and richer detail in features like ‘This Day in History. In case you would like to see the premium offerings before purchasing, the Premium Option is active for all users on Sundays.
I tried out the app and found the display simple and easy to read..the accuracy compared favourably with other weather services and it is a fun app to use…I ony have a couple of niggles..the music gets to be too much after a while, fortunately you can mute it and it would be nice to be able to click on a city on the animated globe and be taken to the weather page for that city…a in later version perhaps?
