  1. 1. By Tony Smith, Aimee Moffat
  2. 2. Who: Anyone What: A comparison of different weather forecasts When: Anytime Where: Anywhere Why: It can be difficult to determine which one of the many conflicting weather reports are the most accurate.
  3. 3. Different weather websites often have different forecasts. It is far too time-consuming to check them all and it is often difficult to know which one to believe. In certain hobbies e.g. fishing, gardening it can be very helpful, or even crucial, to know what the weather will be beforehand.
  4. 4. How do all the different weather forecasts compare with each other? Which weather forecast is the most accurate? What is the best day in the coming week to do a certain outdoor weather-dependant activity?
  5. 5. People who have this problem might try to check multiple weather apps to see how they compare, but this is time consuming and these weather reports often conflict.
  6. 6. Gives weather forecasts from all the major websites so that the user can compare them. Each day the user can rate each forecast on their accuracy and over time the app calculates an average accuracy rating for each so the user can determine which site tends to be the most accurate.
  7. 7. Students don’t seem to be very interested in out app. Instead we hope to target those who regularly take part in outdoor activities e.g. fishing, gardening, motorcycling etc that could depend on an accurate weather forecast.
  8. 8. We have found many weather apps but none that compare forecasts from various sources. We hope that our app will provide a more accurate forecast than any other app on the market, as well as offering other features such as the activity checker.
  9. 9. • The ability to view the average forecast by day (the average is taken from the different weather sources). • The ability to see the weeks forecast from each weather source. • The ability the rate the accuracy of each source each day. The accuracy ratings from all users is used to calculate how accurate a source is overall. • The ability to check which days over the coming week are best for doing activities such as gardening, sailing, skiing, motorcycling, picnics and fishing.
  10. 10. There will be a main page that link to pages that allow the user to view different forecasts by day or by source, as well as to the activities page and the options page. All of these pages will link back to the home page. The ‘by website’ page will link to pages with a more comprehensive overview of each source, each of which will link back to the ‘by website’ page.
  11. 11. Our app does not need to use a lot of spate and the technology needed is fairly simple to it should be compatible for most smartphones. An internet connection will be required to synchronise the forecasts and we may need permission to use information from the sources.
  12. 12. We plan to have a ‘lite’ free version with ads and a ‘premium’ adless version costing around £1.69.
  13. 13. We made a survey about the app and its features and sent it to other students. We found that many students don’t actually regularly check weather forecasts and those that do tend to use the default weather app on their phone or tablet, but that accuracy of weather reports and conflicting information from different sources was a problem for some.
