    Default New iPhone App a Holiday Traveler's "Outside" Assistant


    A lot of people (myself included) will take to the road this weekend or within the next few days to be with family and friends for the holidays. As snow storms blast the east coast of the US and inclement weather rocks myriad locations elsewhere, a new application (and by new, I mean released today) could be a fun, helpful addition to the iPhone just in time for travelers embarking on a holiday excursion.

    Apart from using our handsets for phone calls and mobile gaming, some of the most popular and widely used iPhone apps are weather-related applications and mechanisms that allow users to monitor the weather. Although weather apps usually don't warrant much discussion in this forum, the AppStore is now home to "Outside," a visual weather forecast with push notifications "like you’ve never seen before."

    As the iPhone continues to be modified by developers into a pocket meteorologist, its no wonder that many of the new apps headed for the App Store in 2010 are expected to be pertinent to the weather.

    Outside marries current weather and local forecasts with custom push notifications. Look out the window and see what the weather is like through stunning visuals. Swipe the days to see the forecasts, or setup and receive alerts when the weather is just right.


    Other features include:

    • Current, detailed weather reports with visual representations.
    • Local Weather Forecasts from around the world.
    • Supports both US (Fahrenheit) and Metric (Celsius) systems.
    • Use your GPS or easily search to change your location.


    One of the coolest weather applications available for the iPhone, "Outside" is available for download now for $2.99. It comes with a free 30 days notification subscription, but additional months of service come at a fee.

    lol!!! You & me both. If I walk out the door and feel cold, I'll just walk back in again and get a jacket. Maybe a hat, gloves & scarf too if I feel really cold! Doh!

    I installed it today and while the amount of info it gives is limited, I like how it uses your location to give you a quick summary of current conditions and the forecast for wherever you are.

    Another useless App store app. Of course, I think all weather apps are useless. They're never right! Right now it's a bright sunny day about 30 degrees C. My weather icon says it's raining and 26 C. I can't understand what all the hoopla over a weather widget on the lockscreen is about, yet you can hardly find a lockscreen widget without the weather. $2.99 and then a monthly fee? You've got to be kidding me!
    The Buuf icon pack though page 350 can be found here http://www.megaupload.com/?d=AMHNDKA7 or for those of you who asked for Rapidshare, here, http://rapidshare.com/files/34719307...Icons.zip.html

    If my post helped you, don't forget to click Thanks!

    Just installed it and love the interface! Very nice! But the devs will have to improve it so that it has more of what people want in a weather app. But they are off to a good start! Wish you could have more than one area under locations.

    Quit ******** about the price..

    It is very appropriate to complain about the price. It is a BS price tag on a fairly simple app...

    ^ It is a simple app but the animations are great and interface is worth the price! Don't knock it until you try it!

    A one off charge, maybe. But a monthly fee on top? It could work out to be very expensive!
    Personally I already have a paid for weather app and wouldn't pay for this.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
