ATLANTA, April 25, 2014 (Korea Bizwire) – Available from  iTunes on April 24, a new weather app for iPhone set to excite true weather enthusiasts who want a full view of the weather with the expertise, technology and scale of The Weather Channel.

The Weather Channel® app’s new design and interface have been upgraded in terms of user interface functions. And a new social feature lets fans report your local conditions – you help improve the forecast.

“We’ve redesigned the app to create a more streamlined view with better  data, more context and a participatory experience for our users,” said  Kevin Doerr, senior vice president of digital products, The Weather  Channel. “Our mobile users want real-time weather, and our new crowd  sourcing will provide a deeper layer of data about what’s happening  around them right now.”

Become your own weather forecaster with The Weather Channel

The Weather Channel App for iPhone introduces Social Weather. Report and  share your weather conditions or see what other people in your area are  saying. The app finds and improves the forecast for hard-to-predict  spots.

More data points mean a more accurate forecast, and The Weather Channel  has the most data. Details come from proprietary models, official  government sources worldwide, Weather Underground’s network of 33,000  personal weather stations, and now crowd-sourced weather reports via  mobile app.
