In the past, the BBC was guilty of playing favorites between Apple and Google. Its preference was the crunchy fruit logo tech giant. This time around however it has proven to be quite diplomatic and chosen both for its latest and greatest app. The special app will feature on both iPhone and Android and will show weather reports almost a week ahead of schedule. BBC will also stream news regarding ultra violet rays, pollen samples, wind speeds and humidity ratio to boot.
The BBC mobile weather app
is displayed in almost the exact same way on both systems with a minor difference in case of the Android. The BBC was looking forward to increasing its mobile device weather forecasts as this appealed to the people. The ordinary citizens of Britain want access to tons of information that will shape their behavior especially with regard to the climatic conditions. And that is exactly what the BBC is offering these folks. It will undoubtedly be facing a lot of opposition since other players on the scene such as Yahoo, Met Office, The Weather Channel, AccuWeather and WeatherBug are all entrenched in their ways.
The only thing that is not featured on this app is a video service. The weather channel application is a sane solution to the wind and rain and snow and sleet issues of England. The English weather, being soggy and downcast most of the time, is something the citizens of England want to avail when it gets sunny and shows a clear blue sky instead of the usual clouds and drizzle. Besides the five hour preview there is a three hour forecast and a full day-and-night length synopsis of the weather.
Especially when users want to explore further into the nitty-gritty stuff that lies in this app, there are lots of opportunities for them to do so. They can stay updated and even start predicting the outer situation based on reliable data. The public was in need of such a handy app and finally it is being released. Weather conditions have always perplexed mankind and that includes the meteorologists. But with smarter systems and electronic sensors there is hope for weather prediction and even weather control to be a possibility some day.
