Yesterday saw the release of MetService’s new smartphone app, built for both iPhone and Android markets.
The app is location based, and includes the 10-day ‘Towns and Cities’ forecast, Severe Weather Warnings, latest video forecast from MetService TV, real-time rain radar and 3-day rain forecast, and traffic cams – all for your current location by default, and for all other NZ Towns & Cities via an easy-to-use menu.
There are some great interactive features, including the ability to share the forecast via Twitter and Facebook, and change out background images to personalise the app to your ‘weather mood’. Interactive Manager Craig Delany says, “We love the idea of people being able to make the app their own by uploading a picture of their kids jumping in puddles for a rainy day forecast, or their favourite summer holiday snap for a sunny forecast”.
Find out more about these and other app features in the following video:
The MetService app is ad-free and available now for $2.59 on iTunes and Google Play.
