Ourcast is a weather app with rain updates every ten minutes and interesting social features.
What's NewWe've made Ourcast bigger, bolder, and better! Version 1.5 includes some very exciting features:
- The Forecast and Map screens have been completely redesigned to make the app more fun and more informative.
- We have extended Ourcast's community features to let you check-in and report your weather and share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter (wait until you see the weather icons!)
- Our forecast model now reports snow as well as rain.
- To give you an idea of how intense (or not) the rain is in your area, we are reporting dBz (weather jargon for intensity of rain).
We hope you enjoy all these new features. There are plenty of wonderful features coming in future updates. Thanks for being a part of the Ourcast community!
