Minutely (iPhone/iPad) - Excellent crowd-sourced weather app


Developer Quote: "Minutely is the completely new app from the team at Ourcast."

No matter how good weather forecasters may be at their profession, they can't be everywhere. And they aren't where you are or you'd see them standing there. So why not get your weather made even more accurate by using crowdsourcing? That's what this app does. You and your millions of fellow Minutely users (I don't really know how many there are) can make corrections and add minutely (get it?) updates.


Features:

CORRECT THE WEATHER
Minutely is the first App to combine the power of crowdsourced data (allowing anyone to contribute to our unique weather forecasting model right from their phone) with traditional weather forecasting data. The result is an incredibly accurate short-term, hyper-local weather forecast - down to the minute. And it lets you get some of that frustration out when the weather man gets it wrong!

3D REAL-TIME RADAR
Minutely also provides the worlds first real time 3D Radar right on your phone. Understand the true size of whats coming towards you with never before seen volumetric data. You wont find us massaging the data with our pretty animations.
