[prMac.com] Devon, United Kingdom – App developer Rory Buckley is delighted to announce the recent major update to Weather Pod, the popular weather discovery app. Version 1.3 focuses on both the visual and data side of the app, including new features and stunning visual improvements. Weather Pod is known for it’s charming appearance and intuitive weather discovery methods, so building off this unique theme was the key focus that Rory Buckley took forward as he developed this latest release.
Existing users will notice the new visual layout as soon as they start using the app. Weather Pod has always cleverly used appropriate live motion backgrounds to reflect the users current local weather conditions & version 1.3 comes with a new improved default background, a glowing rain themed background & most noticeably a beautiful winter themed motion background.
The above mentioned motion backgrounds all power the foundation of the app, where the familiar ‘live’ weather icon appears mysteriously and elegantly in the middle of the screen. Upon touching the weather icon, the user will be able to show/hide many advanced weather elements, such as a live minutely summary, humidity, visibility, temperature, wind etc.. New sub-elements of a ‘feels like’ temperature feature and an advanced wind/gust summary have been added to their respected parent element categories.
Summing up other noteworthy improvements to the user interface, an hourly, daily & weekly rain drop feature has been introduced. When the user touches their chosen rain drop, it will (like all rain drops do) fall elegantly down the devices screen bringing the desired hourly, daily or weekly summary to view. This feature heavily supports every other feature on the app, giving the user an advanced and quick weather outlook.
According to Rory Buckley, one heavily user-requested feature has been for Weather Pod to show weather for other locations. Version 1.3 gives the user exactly this, with a cleverly built weather search feature that finds current conditions & 5 day forecasts for any worldwide location, based on the users input (city/town, zip/postal code, lat/lon).
With Weather Pod having established itself as a known App Store weather app with a growing user base, Rory Buckley’s vision is to continue to positively develop the app beyond expectations. He promises many more exciting and imaginative features in the very near future.
