WeatherRules is a weather app at heart but it combines that with the ability to create rules based on various weather measurements. WeatherRules isn’t just for clothing, it can be used for any weather-based decision.
- Measurement: a measurement taken of weather, e.g. Temperature
- Symbol: greater than, greater than or equal to, equal to, less than or equal to, less than + more
- Condition: a measurement + a symbol + a value, e.g. When Temperature is greater than 15°C
- Rule: One or more conditions and a name for your rule, e.g. “Put on Sunscreen” when Temperature is greater than 15°C
- Create rules based on various weather measurements (15+ different measurements).
- Rules can include as many conditions as you can think of.
- View forecasts for today, 13 days into the past (swipe right!) and 7 days into the future (swipe left!).
- Forecasts include ‘Feels-like’ temperature, cloud cover (%), wind gust, wind direction, chance of precipitation (%), humidity, current time, sun altitude and more. They are displayed in a graph (as shown in the above screenshots). A legend is also available which describes each chart component with an example.
- Two Today Extensions are included, one for today’s forecast displayed in a graph and another for the met rules for today. Both extensions are identical to what is displayed in the app itself.
- Time Settings allow you to define a time range for when your rules should be evaluated and how they should be reported (in hourly intervals or once for the entire time range).
- Rule groups allow you to define how mutually exclusive rules are reported. When multiple mutually exclusive rules are met by a forecast only the rule with the higher priority (lower number) is reported.
- Two measurement systems (metric or imperial), located in the settings screen which can be accessed by tapping the white cog in the toolbar below the forecasts.
- Multiple App Background's are included which change the look of the app and the included Today Extensions.
- A Raw Data screen is included to show all the raw data for a given Forecast.
- Added a new '⋯' button below every forecast which when pressed, opens a new menu which lets you view the raw data for the forecast
- Added special handling for Polar Day and Polar Night to the Solar Noon chart component
- Fixed an issue where the two charts ended up being different sizes
- Increased the size of the precipitation accumulation values on iPad
- Increased the left and right padding on the charts because they were too tight
- Increased the top padding on the bottom chart so precipitation accumulation values are always visible
- Fixed an issue with long location names
