MeteoGroup Launch Extreme Weather App for Android

Weather alerts, one of the most requested features on WeatherPro, has been launched on WeatherPro for Android. The weather alerts appear on the forecast screen if extreme weather is forecast at any point in the next three days and Premium subscribers can also opt to receive alerts in the notification bar.


WeatherPro was first developed for iPhone in 2008 and the original app has traditionally led the way in the development process.  Now, for the first time since WeatherPro was launched on Android, MeteoGroup has introduced this major new release on the Android app first.



High customer demand led to the development of this feature which highlights when extreme weather, such as high winds, heavy rain or low/high temperatures, is forecast in the next three days. The alert appears on the forecast screen and is colour coded to represent low, medium and high warnings.  An easy to read graph and explanation provides additional detail.



Premium subscribers also benefit from the added value of alerts without even opening the app.  Subscribers will see the alerts for their favourite locations on the homescreen widgets and can opt to receive alerts for these locations in the notification bar.



MeteoGroup continues to develop the alert system and more advanced features, including a push service for the warnings, are expected in the coming months. WeatherPro for Android 2.3 also has some small design and interface improvements and some bug fixes.

WeatherPro for Android 2.3 is available for download from Google Play at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mg.android.
