Islamabad, Pakistan – AxisBlue Studios today is pleased to announced the launch of their latest weather app “Weather Mate”, an elegant yet highly informative package that is designed to be the one-stop weather solution for everyone. Weather Mate delivers a complete bundle of information which includes current live weather conditions, 7-day weather forecasts including hourly details in 3-hour intervals, astronomical information, push temperature/freeze alerts, and animated weather maps for more than 3.2 million locations world-wide.
Weather Mate has been built under supervision by weather experts and iOS design gurus and thus uniquely combines user experience with usability.
“Weather Mate offers the most detailed feature set of any weather app on the App Store. Users can also keep track of up to 10 locations at the same time, which makes the app very useful for travelers”, said Luke Thompson, Chief Software Architect at AxisBlue Studios. “With this app, we have managed to fill the feature-holes present in the other weather apps on the App Store”.
Everything About Weather:
Weather Mate displays current weather conditions from local weather stations which includes temperature, feels like temperature, weather description, wind speed and direction, precipitation, visibility, humidity, pressure, cloud cover, wind chill, dew point, heat index, probability of rain, and snow for up to 10 global locations at a time.
Forecasts can be viewed for the entire week with details for high/low temperatures, weather condition/icon and astronomical information like sunrise, sunset, moonrise & moonset. Immediate forecasts can also be displayed in 3 hourly intervals with detailed information available for each interval. Users can also inspect weather conditions on a global scale using a selection of interactive and animated Cloud, Rain, Satellite and Radar maps.
Interactivity and Ease of Usage:
The app offers the advanced “Push Temperature Alerts” feature which displays the current temperature right on the app icon’s badge on the home screen. Also included are freeze alerts to notify when the temperature passes the zero mark, which also appear on the lock screen and the notification center. Another unique feature is the ability to listen to current weather conditions making the app highly suitable for the elderly and the disabled. Users can also simply swipe to switch between current locations with the option to choose custom units for any of the weather parameters.
Weather Mate features a stunning streamlined interface with beautiful background weather animations automatically matched to the current weather conditions, a large world clock for each monitored location and one-touch screen capturing and sharing capabilities. Users can choose time in 12 or 24-hour formats and also control the brightness of the app.
Superb Performance and Compatibility:
Weather Mate is a universal App for the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad. All features are fully compatible with iPhone 5 & iOS 6 and the gorgeous interface is HD ready for Retina displays. Users get a completely smooth and bug free experience with every single feature optimized for high speed and performance.
Weather Mate has been developed by iOS experts with one key feature in focus – Performance.
“Once we had consolidated the feature set, we had one single mission, to deliver the most stable and high performance weather app on the App store. Too often, apps bombard the user with tiny details which defeats the superb interactivity of iOS devices, while on the other side, many apps are just a lot of shiny interface without any associated usefulness.” said Carl Barnes, the design lead. “With a large number of features, it was a challenge to control the app size without compromising on any information and keeping the performance level very high at the same time. I am confident that we have very successfully achieved the feature/performance balance with this app”.
“Getting all these features from existing apps would require users to spend $8-9, with the inconvenience of having multiple apps for the same function. We wanted this app to be the definitive weather solution for iOS users. The trust factor is very important for us. We want our customers to be completely satisfied and be the directors for the future development of Weather Mate. We also have a dedicated support team to handle all the feedback from users”, added Carl Barnes.
