The BBC Has Released a Weather App

BBC Weather has introduced a weather app for iOS and Android. The free app competes directly with other weather apps including The Weather Channel, Accuweather and Yahoo’s Weather app.

Like other weather apps, the BBC’s app uses GPS to detect your location and give you a forecast for weather in your area. It also includes 5-day forecasts, hourly forecasts and  lets you check for weather in other areas.

Here is more from the press release: “With regular updates for the weather and other information including UV, pollen count, wind speed and humidity, you’ll always know when to take out the brolly, put on the sun screen, or stock-up on hay fever supplies. And when the summer has been and gone, you can still keep ahead of the snow, sleet and showers.”
