Sky’s the limit: Weather app promises precision

10.11.2011 Weather : App : Prediction

New York– New York-based web mobile developers Adam Grossman and Jack Turner have launched a weather app that promises military-style accuracy in its predictions.

Known as Dark Sky, the app uses GPS technology to forecast the weather over your exact location with down-to-the-minute accuracy, all shown in a chart at the bottom of your mobile screen.

Able to predict one hour ahead, the app might tell you it will rain in six minutes for a period of eight minutes and then be sunny afterwards for a period of 12 minutes.

For another mobile app that uses GPS in an innovative way, see our story on the Light Album.
