Reason to rejoice on Friday, April 13th: Weather Alarm recorded its 1 millionth download! We are very happy with the Weather Alarm team!
It has been about seven years since the first release of the app saw the light of day. Since then, Weather Alarm has continuously expanded the app with new, attractive features.
The app offered the core function of weather warnings right from the start: users are warned of various types of storms by means of push messages. The granularity of the regions and the number of storm types, now seven, have been continuously expanded. And today the weather situation in the whole country can be observed with zoomable storm and flood maps.
The weather forecasts have also been continuously expanded with new features: the app today offers detailed weather forecasts for more than 30,000 Swiss towns, including Swiss-wide forecast maps as well as precipitation and lightning radar. Since 2017, users have been able to enjoy high-resolution live cam panorama images from over 160 locations in Switzerland. In addition, the most important weather information is easily accessible via widget.
However, the continuous optimization of the User Experience was and still is a major focus. Using prototyping and agile development, new functions are designed, implemented and extensively tested with the involvement of end users before they become accessible to a wide audience. The app was awarded Gold in the category User Experience at the Best of Swiss App Award 2017.
