Al Roker Releases iOS exclusive Al’s Weather Rokies App

Posted by on May 16th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The TODAY Show co-anchor and renown weather man Al Roker has just released a new app called Al’s Weather Rokies exclusively for iOS devices. It is a cartoon-style game that incorporates real time-weather.

The game, which was created with The TODAY Show technology contributor Katie Linendoll and animator Steve Lunny, is based on a real-life experience Roker faced. The goal is to make sure a weatherman wakes up from his weather-laden dreams to get to work. It incorporates weather icons and unique characters known as “Rokies” to create the gameplay.

Roker clearly loved the process of creating the game. “Creating an app that fused animation and weather was an exciting opportunity I could not pass up. I loved being part of the creative process and sketching some of the mascots featured in the game,” he said in a press release. “I challenge everyone to WAKE ME UP!”

Al’s Weather Rokies  is available on the App Store for $0.99.

The Weather Channel has recently updated its The Weather Channel for iOS app. With this update, the app gets a new look (with new icon), a simpler interface, and more. A key feature is “Social Weather,” which allows users to report local weather as well as share images of weather conditions via the app.

According to Kevin Doerr, Vice-President for digital products at The Weather Channel, mobile users’ wants were key with regards to redesign. “We’ve redesigned the app to create a more streamlined view with better data, more context and a participatory experience for our users,” he says. “Our mobile users want real-time weather, and our new crowd sourcing will provide a deeper layer of data about what’s happening around them right now.”

More information about the redesigned app is available at The Weather Channel press site. The Weather Channel app is available for free on the App Store.

iOS 7: Perfect Weather – NOAA Radar and Forecast Balances Quick Overviews with Important Details

Posted by on September 18th, 2013
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Perfect Weather – NOAA Radar and Forecast is a slick-looking weather app designed to compliment iOS 7’s new look. However, it’s also quite functional.

The app includes the essentials such as detailed weather conditions and a 7 day forecast, but it also allows users to pull up a temperature chart with hourly readings as well as see the temperature in all their saved locations simultaneously. All that, plus a split view that displays both the current forecast and weather map at the same time.

So not only is it a great visual fit with iOS 7, it’s also looking mighty useful!

• 7 day forecast
• Weather maps with radar and clouds
• Detailed current conditions
• Temperature chart with hourly forecast pop-up

Clear interface that’s easy to use:

• See temperatures in all locations at once
• Switch quickly between locations
• View and share severe weather alerts

Expert App Reviews

 

Week-in and week-out, the 148Apps reviewers search through the new apps out there, find the good ones, and write about them in depth. The ones we love become Editor’s Choice, standing out above the many good apps and games with something just a little bit more to offer. Want to see what we’ve been up to this week? Take a look below for a sampling of our latest reviews. And if you want more, be sure to hit our Reviews Archive.

SuperBetter

 
superbetter

A surprising amount of apps and games like to think that they can change one’s life. In reality, a select few can actually accomplish something that huge. Most of the remaining few might change small elements, such as providing encouragement for those trying to exercise more or give up a bad habit. SuperBetter is part of an even smaller group: it wants to change and improve everything about one’s life. A lofty ambition but one that I reckon it can accomplish, with the willingness of its users. One such glimpse into the importance of SuperBetter comes from this Ted video from game designer, Jane McGonigal, explaining just why the app can help so much. It’s fascinating stuff and ideal context. Essentially, SuperBetter is about turning life into a game. –Jennifer Allen

Layton Brothers Mystery Room

 
laytonbrothers10

Oh, look, Layton Brothers Mystery Room. Sounds interesting. The name Layton has pretty much become synonymous with puzzle-solving brilliance. The Professor had a knack for solving most of the world’s problems with a little logic, and that talent has apparently been passed on to his progeny. Alfendi Layton, however, is not his father. Mysteries are still a key feature for this particular Layton’s adventures, however Alfendi and his new assistant Lucy Baker (Detective Constable) are out to solve murder mysteries. Two of which are available for free right from the start and seven more that can be purchased for an additional $5. The each case involves mulling over suspects, inspecting a recreated crime scene (because Alfendi is something of a shut-in), questioning suspects/witnesses, and piecing it all together until a solid accusation can be made. In fact, aside from the world and characters Layton Brothers Mystery Room actually bears little resemblance to earlier games in the series. –Rob Rich

Limbo

 
Limbo-1

Limbo, the 2010 Xbox Live Arcade release that also made its way to other platforms, has finally come to mobile. For those who have not experienced this haunting puzzle-platformer, this is as good a time as any to jump in. Limbo is dark and mysterious, thanks in part to its silhouetted art style that renders most the world in black and white. There’s little guidance given, as players just kind of have to start running, and taking on the challenges that face them, from tricky jumps to finding ways to dispatch enemies, and avoiding traps. This is very much a horror game, as plenty of opportunities to scare the player are presented. Seriously, this game is nightmare-inducing. The deaths in the game aren’t particularly gory, but they are rather gruesome. That it’s a kid on the receiving end of most of the carnage is part of what makes it unsettling. That, and some of the things that are encountered in the world of Limbo. –Carter Dotson

Coolson’s Artisanal Chocolate Alphabet

 
coolsons

As some readers may have noticed, I do not personally review many word games. Very few word games gain my attention because I am terrible at these types of puzzles, finding them for the most part frustrating and demoralizing. Therefore, it is quite a compliment from me to have enjoyed reviewing Coolson’s Artisanal Chocolate Alphabet as it is a word game that has won me over with a charming narrative, wonderful sense of style and an abundance of whimsy that I have greatly enjoyed. –Amy Solomon

The Terrifying Building in Eyeville

 
eyeville

The Terrifying Building in Eyeville is a thoughtfully written and wonderfully illustrated children’s storybook app. This is a very personal storybook developed by Joel Grondrup as his daughter was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare cancer of the retina. The Terrifying Building in Eyeville is an allegory for this cancer as a small man named Kanser arrives in Eyetown after falling off the back of a truck during a rain storm. He knocks on the door of Mr. Nice and asks if he can start building onto Mr. Nice’s home as he is a traveling builder who looks for houses to build onto. –Amy Solomon

AndroidRundown

Space is Key

 
space

The best games, for me, are ones that are simple, easy to control and, more or less mildly infuriating. It’s why I pulled my hair, shedding years while playing Super Hexagon. It’s probably why I find Space is Key so intriguing. It mocks me. To my face. It’s evil. Space is Key is about as simple as they come. Looks-wise, it uses switching primary colors with opposing hues to highlight obstacles. The color changes do an interesting job of creating a psychedelic atmosphere reminiscent of Super Hexagon that doesn’t internet with the gameplay. –Tre Lawrence

Warmly

 
warmly

Warmly is an atypical productivity offering from The Chaos Collective that seemingly wants to make the descriptive term “alarm” a misnomer by changing the way we do alarms and wake patterns in the first place. The opening user interface is a clear cut celebration of simplicity, and hints at the design elements that govern the entire app. It gives a scroll-through window for setting the time (with an AM/PM toggle), and nine (9) big square buttons. After a scheduling check-off and an off and ok button, THAT’S IT. Laid against the soothing yellow backdrop, the relatively minimalist viewers are hard not to like. –Tre Lawrence

LandGrabbers

 
landgrabbers

Nevosoft’s LandGrabbers is a fun hybrid game that is surprisingly dependent on strategy and quick thinking. The land that makes up this game is ably represented by effective graphics the encompass several mythical environments. In the first stage, the 3D graphics do a good job of giving life to the structures, and further down the line, the scenery becomes even more intricate; rolling hills, stone bridges and shrubbery all add up to cushion the action in a reasonable looking shell. –Tre Lawrence
