Reviews

Introduction

Making a slightly unique addition to the Weather category of the App Store is Climate Wise - Winter Edition, which provides weather information for the continental United States based on averages taken over the past 30 years to ensure the utmost in accuracy and predictability.

The best iPad apps for weather

I’ve never lived in the United States but after spending around 18 months in Quebec I can definitely attest to just how merciless and unforgiving the winters can be in the northern parts of the continent, so I think this app will be truly invaluable for those of you who live in areas prone to severe conditions.
