Weather Apps

Post by Johnny » Mon Oct 30, 2017 9:35 am

If you'd like your weather forcast with some added mustard then you might like an app called 'What The Forecast' for Android and IOS. The mustard part is telling you what it's like outside with some added humour, it has a profanity setting of 'Some' 'On' or 'Off' The images below are with the 'Some' setting, I couldn't really show the other screens on our lovely MT 'PG' forum.

In addition to this silliness, it does actually give you the hourly forecast for the day and the days ahead, if you tap the main screen it also gives you the finer details, data come from Aeris Weather.

If you don't like swearing then don't even think about it. It's free with ads at the bottom of the screen or $2 to go ad free.

No I don't work for this company or have any connections with it. :)

Not to mention it's hilarious to hear a computer voice read that mustard!

I personally use Carrot weather on my iphone (I am not affiliated with this company also). She's very snarky herself. (I edited the word in question) I like that I am able to save and view my PWS at home (Data retrieved from WU). You do need to pay for the premium subscription, which I prefer since it's tied to my PWS. You can choose how 'snarky' she is. I have to have my phone on silent during work, cause she does 'say' these words, ROFL..

Hi Christopher, that sounds fun as well, especially if you can get it to read your Weather Underground data, I'll have to have a look.

The developer just added that feature. Granted it is a premium, but it's reasonable. I was just tired of viewing weather data that was inaccurate from all of them.
