Weather reports don’t exactly leave the population polarized. Everyone pretty much agrees that the local weatherman is rolling the dice before best-guesstimating what the forecast is going to be. Why we still rely on some random dude with a barometer and airport is beyond me. Instead, why don’t we just rely on what our neighbours are seeing and feeling when it comes to the weather?
Weddar, a new application that just hit the market, aims to do just that. Instead of relying on machines to make estimates about the weather, Weddar actually polls people, and then determines what the weather looks like in your area.
It’s a new idea, based on old social-media inspiration, so we thought we’d pass it along. It could very well be the start of a new hyper-local weatherman system based on what’s actually happening on the other side of your bedroom window, instead of what may or may not be happening at the airport 100 kilometres away.
The application is currently free on the App Store. We’re anxious to hear what you think about it in the comments.
We’re working on a more in-depth review, so keep your eyes peeled for it in the future.
