Personal Weather Consultant is a minimalist weather forecast app
There are lot of weather apps out there and two basic trends: the one that provides users with lots of Pro tools and the one that prefers minimalism. Personal Weather Consultant is on the latter approach. Average users don't need wind pressure and lot of technical data: they just want to know if it will rain or not, if there'll be wind and the temperature. If you empathize with that, then you should take a look at this app.
Let's make it clear first: Personal Weather Consultant wont' amaze you regarding design. It is set in a simple and sober layout. Actually, that's one of the points its developer must focus on: design and interface can make the app more usable. Besides, the app works perfectly. You can set the city you want the get the weather forecast of, the measurement unit for speed (wind), and temperature (degrees). Likewise, you ca enable notifications of the weather forecast for new events on the calendar (Google Calendar sync), as well as alarm clock notifications.
There's a basic 5-days weather forecast. You can see the forecast in details (by hours) by taping any of the days. Weather condition, temperature, humidity, wind speed and wind direction is all what you'll get. Fair enough, isn't it? Basic concepts to get an idea of what's happening out there. When you are in the detailed forecast (by hours) you can swipe left/right to see next/previous days forecast.
In brief, a simple and understandable weather forecast app that goes straight to the issue.
Personal Weather Consultant, check your calendar and check the weather conditions of the place and at the time of the appointment. He monitors constantly your calendar and controls the insertion of the new events to be able to provide timely weather interested information.
If that were not enough, the weather consultant 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.
The application also lets you set a favorite city for which you can check the weather regardless of the calendar appointments.

- Weather conditions (with intervals of three hours)
