APP: Crowdsource Your Forecast With 'Sunshine'

September , APP- Crowdsource Your Forecast With 'Sunshine ' 1

Sunshine is a weather app that aims to take the guess work out of predicting the weather. Rather than basing its forecasts on satellites that focus on the big picture, Sunshine uses the sensors of your smartphone to create personal, street-level weather forecasts to help you plan your day.

It works by combining the barometer reading from your smartphone with crowd-sourced weather reports from the app's users at street level.  Currently in beta testing it's app has produced 36% more accurate forecasts.

With Auckland's 'Four Seasons In One Day' weather it would certainly have it work cut out for it here.

Sunshine is available from Apple's App Store
