Brella - Personal Weather 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! NEW - Alexa Support There’s a new virtual assistant in town, and one with some weather-related Personality. Just say "Alexa, ask Brella Weather..." for your personalized forecast, what the weather will be like, or just what to wear. Brella even has custom Personality phrases for her new home! Visit Brella’s settings to connect your phone to Alexa and hear just how personable some of her lines are. 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?

  • One of my favorites

    By Markandrew771
    Allows you to really tweak the app for customizing your personal preferences concerning what you want to wear in every type of weather condition and temperature range. I have not seen any other weather app with these advanced features.
  • Great personal app

    Nice job! As a Cornell alum I’m a fan of the brilliance coming out of the school. :) I wonder if there’s a way to have a calendar trigger, like if an event starts with “meeting” then Brella tells me to wear a work outfit versus my work-from-home clothes. That’d make this 10 stars out of 5 especially if I didn’t have to look at my schedule AND the weather to determine the kind of outfit to wear. Would require more setup at first and customization but I’d be down!
  • Great App!

    I use it everyday and it’s clever, too. Better than competing weather apps because it has a personality. Looking forward to more updates (the new Alexa addition is great)!
  • Fun

    I love this weather app. My daughter and I check it to plan what to wear for the day. It is accurate and makes us smile.
  • Truly excellent concept

    By Thomas_Ella
    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.
  • I LOVE this !

    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 📱
  • Saves me from myself

    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!

    By AmayanEmpire
    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😎
