Brella - Your Personalized Weather Forecast App Description

Meet Brella, a beautiful and thoughtful weather app that takes the "um" out of the forecast and delivers your personalized weather forecast daily! Featured by AppAdvice and Macworld! Beautiful, Thoughtful Design Brella streamlines the crowded weather forecast down to its most essential elements. Bold, vibrant colors indicate the temperature at a glance, while temperature and conditions are presented with crisp, bold text. The hourly forecast provides a clean, yet detailed look at the day’s weather, while the daily forecast makes comparing temperature ranges nearly instantaneous. Playful Personality While we were teaching Brella how to translate your wardrobe into a readable forecast, we might have let this super-powered AI spend a little too much time online. From pop culture and movie references to delightful messages and cheesy compliments, Brella adds that personal touch in a personalized daily forecast that will make you smile, cringe, or sminge. Look for seasonal updates! Daily Notifications Always checking the weather in the morning to see what to wear? Have the answer right on your lock screen when you wake up with Brella’s personalized forecast. You can choose exactly the type of information you want in your notification, from bare-bones essential weather to a detailed forecast summary. In addition, you can check out what wild wisdom Brella has to offer at any time through the Today Widget in Notification Center. Both Notifications and the Today Widget are free for a 10-day trial period, and together are the only in-app purchase. Powered by the Best We turned to the best available sources to find and deliver the weather anywhere, even Waldo’s hideout. Our backend server is powered by Vapor, a fantastic Swift web framework, and our database is run using the rock-solid Google Firebase. We also use data from Dark Sky, which uses its own custom hyperlocal forecasting system to calculate the most accurate weather forecast possible. Additionally, you can look up the weather in over 100 million locations with data from Google Places, the same database used by Google Maps. Our Work Is Never Over We’re hard at work bringing Brella everywhere, from Apple Watch support and an iMessage extension to Rich Notifications in iOS 10. We're also always working on algorithm improvements, as well as teaching Brella even more Personality all the time! Let us know if you have any suggestions or any other feature requests! We are Thrilled You’re Reading This! Not only does it mean you took the time to see what this app is all about, but it means we’re on the App Store for the first time! So much time and effort and love has been put into this app, from Austin teaching himself how to be a backend developer to Matt making the first version of the sentence algorithm during freshman finals. These achievements each have varying degrees of wisdom. Feel free to contact us at any time with questions, comments, concerns, or even just small talk about the weather :) .

  • Truly excellent concept

    When you check the weather in the morning, you’re probably translating all that information to answer one question: what should I wear today? Brella makes that effortless. My only problems with it are that 1) the morning notifications seem to only show up maybe 2/3 of the time, and 2) it’s not very iPhone SE-friendly. I went from a 7 Plus to an SE and now the today widget is useless and I have to expand all notifications to see what to wear. There’s an option for short notifications but then it doesn’t tell me what to wear, which is a bummer. Still, it’s well worth it.

    This is a very cool app. All you need to do is turn on your Location (settings)⚙️, select temperatures🔥🌤🌦❄️and set up a dress schedule! 👖👙👗👚👕👞👠 It gives me cool messages like "Rihanna has one bit you should get under an umbrella too , it's gonna be raining all day☔️." See ? That is really fun! Not boring at all. I even asked my grandma If they got the weather right and she said yes! This is not like the other apps and it saves me battery 📱

    I live in a town with variable weather so of course every morning I have to open a weather app if I want to avoid getting drenched or heat stroke. And sometimes I can't be bothered to open an app and figure out whether I need a coat or not. Brella's simple notifications save time and energy, I just see em on my morning scroll through the nights notifications, and I always know if it's gonna rain. The choose your own clothing and preferences feature is helpful too!
  • Notifications are a must! Great app!

    When I first got this app I didn't think much of it. It was clean and sleek. Very pleasing. Not too crowded. I thought it was interesting how it customs to my weather tolerance. What I think makes this app unique is it sends me weather notifications of what it was going to be like throughout the day with a recommendation on what to wear. The recommendations are based on what clothing items you input which i didn't really take the time to do. So I turned off the clothing suggestions and I just had it send me the weather for the day only. I must say this weather notification thing is weirdly addicting. Not like in the sense where it gets your adrenaline pumping but I found myself reading the daily weather every morning. Once my free trial was over it felt weird not receiving a notification. I had to get the notification feature. Overall great app. No ad bs on the user experience which is a great plus. The basic version without notifications is still nice. Would definitely recommend to those who base their day on the daily weather. Before this I didn't care what the weather would be and would almost always be blindsided when bipolar weather hit, freezing one day blazing hot the next. Nifty simple app

    So I'm a huge fan of weather and this app is hella convenient. It's unlike normal weather apps that are boring, Brella makes weather fun. I get notifications in the morning telling me what the weather will be like for the day and how to dress. 10/10 would recommend😎

    So many weather apps bombard you with useless data. This app gives you exactly what you need to know, and you can control exactly what it sends you. Plus the colors are so pretty! 😍
