What can you use the app for?

Weather Alarm is a mobile weather tracking application that lets users stay on top of the condition changes that they need to know about. The app provides a wealth of weather-related information, including wind speed, humidity, UV index, temperature and precipitation for the area the user specifies. Users can also setup a weather alarm which alerts them when a specific condition is about to happen, such as snow, rain, thunderstorms or sunshine. Users will know which days are better to stay inside and which they should enjoy at the beach, on the ski slopes or walking the trails. The application offers general 10 day forecasts as well as detailed 3 hour forecasts for up to 3 locations. Temperatures are available in Celsius and Fahrenheit.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Weather Alarm offers many appealing benefits for weather gurus and those who plan to spend any time outdoors. So far, the app hasn’t received much attention from Apple users. This could be because there are so many free weather apps and online resources available that users are reluctant to pay for a similar service. The app is not yet available to Android users, either, which cuts down its mobile demographic. The custom weather alert thing is unique and helpful, but it might be hard to convince people to pay for something that can be accessed for free.

What are the differences to other apps?

There are many weather-related applications available to mobile users. Weather Alarm improves its offerings with its unique alert system. Users can setup a custom alert which warns them when a certain condition is coming in the next few hours or over the next few days. The alerts are very convenient for anyone who will spend significant time outdoors (or anyone that might be impacted by adverse weather).

Alternative Apps
How does the web app look and feel to use?

Weather Alarm offers a very sleek, modern interface. The icons and text are very crisp and easy to read. Users can gather a lot of weather-related information at a glance. The display is well-organized so new users can dive right in after installing. Users with experience navigating free apps will appreciate the lack of intrusive advertisements.

How does the registration process work?

Weather Alarm is currently available on iTunes. Users can visit the Apple Store on their mobile device, search for the application then download it. No special registration is required. The user will have to supply location details, of course. The app also lets users add up to 3 locations to track simultaneously if they want to.

What does it cost to use the application?

Weather Alarm can be downloaded on most Apple devices for a flat fee of $2.99. This is the cost of purchasing the application. No subscription fees are required and the user doesn’t have to pay anything else to access current features. Users should note that the application is compatible with iPhone, iPod and iPad products using iOS7 or newer. An Android version is in the works but no pricing information has been provided for that version as of yet.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Weather Alarm is a convenient tool for anyone who needs to know what the weather is going to be like regularly. The application provides a lot of information in a clean, concise interface. The ability to setup weather alerts is appealing for people who work outdoors as well as anyone who spends a lot of free time outside. The downside is that the information provided can be accessed for free elsewhere, which will make it hard for causal users to justify spending money on the app.
