Californian Sunshine app Sunshine almost fully ready for uber model weather sharing data

There are many years that I think of a collaborative weather application for smartphones and this time, I think the service is available and suffisant enouph.

Hence, the californian Sunshine app called Sunshine is now available in beta on the Android operating systems via the Store. For memory the application already exists since late 2015 on the Apple Appstore and the latest version (0.9.4) has been updated on August 1, 2016.
The principle is quite simple since it is the users that feed the database by providing with a large number of subscribers of course, all specific weather information.

In some words, is looks like uber model weather application !

A bit like the famous guide app Waze, the user is invited, after registering, to describe the weather with drawings, pictograms, and even emoji and can earn points also there as the Waze Service .

Sunshine app is available on iOS for US and Canadian users and with a beta version for Android.
