Never Let Weather Catch You Unprepared with Personal Weather Consultant

If you’re living with weather conditions as volatile as the American Northeast, you certainly know the value of checking the weather before leaving home. Unlike the few lucky enough to live in more temperate climates, those dealing with ever-changing weather patterns must make do by preparing ourselves before we step foot outside. However, despite the need, many of us (yours truly included) still forget to make this a part of the daily ritual. This is where an intelligent weather app comes in.

Thankfully, XDA Senior Member lupidapi has the solution with his newest app, Personal Weather Consultant. As one would expect from a weather app, PWC allows you to check the weather. However, the real beauty in this app is its ability to anticipate your needs so that you don’t have to manually check, and thus so you don’t forget. The features, as described by the developer:

Personal Weather Consultant features:
★ check your calendar and check the weather conditions of the place and at the time of the appointment.
★ monitors constantly your calendar and controls the insertion of the new events to be able to provide timely weather interested information.
★ wakes up with you: he synchronize with the alarm clock of your phone and makes sure that you give an eye to the weather before you leave home so you will not be surprised by sudden storms or in order to adopt the most suitable clothing.
★ set a favorite city for which you can check the weather regardless of the calendar appointments.
★ calculates the perceived temperature using the Wind Chill Index and the Heat Index (where possible to calculate them).
★ set the preferred units for speed and temperature

In other words, this app provides you with weather, temperature, humidity, wind, cloud cover and pressure before you ask for it. While apps such as Google Now can do that as well, this app takes it one step further by also checking your calendar to determine when you need to wake up given the current conditions.

Interested in giving this a shot on your own device? If so, head over to the original thread.
