Application development is probably one of the fastest paced industries of all, even within the world of IT where technology is constantly advancing.So here we take an in-depth look at app development within the world of weather which, as we’ll go onto explain, may provide for an ever more exciting future.
What’s this about?
Application development is probably one of the fastest paced industries of all,
even within the world of IT where technology is constantly advancing. What’s
more, with hit applications such as Flight Track (with an estimated $5 million
worth of sales), and RealMac Software’s Clear (with an estimated revenue of $1.5
million) it’s pretty clear that app development can equally be a pretty lucrative
So here we take an in-depth look at app development within the world of weather
which, as we’ll go onto explain, may provide for an ever more exciting future.
WHAT’S THIS ABOUT?
For the right coder with the right application, there is certainly a world of Smartphone users
with an appetite for weather apps. Take Yahoo! Weather (which boasts almost one million
downloads), AccuWeather (with over 130,000 downloads) or The Weather Channel (with has
been subject to in excess of half a million downloads).
What’s more, this appetite extends far beyond the usual weather prediction for the upcoming
week; take Radarscope, for example, which is specifically aimed toward meteorologists and
weather enthusiasts, providing extensive radar mapping for weather around the world. This app
is just one of many that enter the corporate realm.
GOING BEYOND POUND
“Weather based apps” is an application collective that is seriously varied: from the
popular precipitation app of Dark Sky that ensures app owners never need face a
frizzy hair day again, through to the apps that deal with emergency scenarios, such
as Storm Shield (for comprehensive storm coverage) and Simple Weather Alert
(which pings the user when alerts from the National Weather Service emerge).
Weather applications are then clearly not only for the mundane and ordinary uses,
but can open up to a domain of development that can quite literally create
Weather based apps can clearly be both lucrative and relied upon for safety, and as
such, weather app developers clearly need APIs upon which they can rely. There are
a range of weather APIs from which developers may choose, including: BloomSky,
CliMate, Metwit, Wezzo, Weathermob and last but certainly not least, our very own
weather API: APIXU, which is promising much for the future of developers seeking
out financially lucrative hot spots (and wet, cold or snowy hotspots!).
The realm of app development is certainly profitable for the right, robust coding
talents with the most useful or addictive of app ideas. And behind every good app
developer is a set of solid data that is served up efficiently and reliably. So for your
next big money weather app, choose APIXU as your first, last and only weather API
