Today The Sunday Times publishes the second part of their definitive App List. Today their selection includes both Science and Weather and the Met Office is delighted that our iPhone App is included in the list of the top 500 apps out there.
Increasingly, with rapid technological change, consumers demand instant access to weather information, and for it to be continuously updated. We take seriously our responsibility to provide the best possible service to the public, and this requires us to continually develop our scientific excellence to ensure we continue to provide the best advice possible in ways that meet the increasing demands of our customers. We are responding to this challenge: for example, our weather forecasting models now allow us to provide accurate forecasts for nearly 5000 individual locations across the country, helping to make our iPhone app one of the top five most popular in the UK, with over one million downloads.
As the UK’s national meteorological service, the Met Office provides accurate and reliable weather forecasts on TV and radio, in print, and online. Now, you can get our forecasts wherever you go with the free Met Office iPhone application. The app gives you access to:
- Five-day forecasts
- National severe weather alerts
- Daily national and regional weather maps
- UK rainfall radar and satellite imagery
The iPhone application is free and available from the Apple App Store .
