Weather HD 2 Arrives in a Gorgeous Design RevampJuly 31st, 2012
Weather HD 2 is now available. It’s stuffed with gorgeous. Packed in stunning. And wrapped in beautiful.
It’s a ground-breaking new version that has been built from the grounds up to be more useful, and more beautiful. We focused on what was liked the most, and wanted the most, and tuned and perfected every bit.
Eye-Popping 3D Weather Maps.
With Weather HD 2, we wanted to create 3D Maps that are not only useful, but utterly gorgeous. To be able to do so, we built a 3D maps engine from the grounds up that in every sense of the word pushes the iPhone and the iPad to their limits in rendering out as beautiful of a 3D world as can be! With extremely fast loading time, beautiful animations, and very high detail, the 3D maps in Weather HD 2 outshine anything you have seen before. You can see on the 3D maps temperature, cloud coverage, and radar layers.
Quickview: Fast Forecast, Fast!
One of the great things about Weather HD was how beautifully it portrayed the weather. One disadvantage however was that navigating between cities was quite slow. A list could’ve been faster, but it would’ve looked ugly, so for Weather HD 2, we created Quickview; a beautiful animated rendering of multiple locations in a split-screen fashion that is not only fast and extremely easy to use, but also looks amazing.
MultiForecast for Ultimate Weather Data Accuracy.
With MultiForecast, you can add through in-app purchase Accuweather and MeteoGroup, so you can see how the weather is reported differently between providers and never have to second-guess how your day will turn out to be.
With Weather HD 2 you can now share the weather to Facebook and Twitter. Also, with the Friends’ Weather feature, Weather HD can show you how the weather is in your friends’ locations; a fast and easy way for you to keep track of how the weather is for your friends and family. And Live Tweets shows you how everyone is tweeting about weather in the United States
Beautiful Animations, Severe Alerts & More Languages.
Weather HD 2 comes with beautiful new animations that will pop from your iPhone and iPad’s screen, and now provides information about severe weather alerts in the United States and Europe. Also, you can now receive Push Notifications for Severe Alerts affecting your cities.
And it is now fully localized in 15 languages!
And all of this as a FREE update!
It is a great new update, packed with so many new features, all together perfectly balanced to achieve the best user experience.
