After a positive response from South African users, WeatherSA broadened its offering to BlackBerry, Mxit and now Android.
The launch of the Android application will continue to grow our rapidly expanding user base of over 700, 000 SA users,” says WeatherSA’s director Chris Barker. “The Android application is not a far departure from the existing weather apps and has all the story tracking and notification features that WeatherSA users have come to expect.”
The WeatherSA app has been designed with South Africans in mind. It’s simple to use, yet features detailed weather data conveniently on your mobile. It allows you to easily swipe between locations, view seven-day forecasts across four time slots, view a detailed rain forecast as well as detailed graphs and maps.
It is the only South African app with built-in storm capabilities allowing you to track storms in real-time. The app also allows you to play and zoom live storms, watch activity on the national radar and view lighting strikes in real time.
It allows you to stay informed with customised push notifications for your suburb such as a daily weather forecast, national warnings and breaking weather news. One of a kind notifications include the 30 min prior warning for storms, unusual weather, and hail risk for your commute home.
Additional features include easily checking the best time of day to cycle, jog and hit the beach plus much more lifestyle content.
While the app is free to download there are some additional subscriptions that give access to extra features.
