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

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.

To tweet more thand 140 characters, use Stormit app !

For those like me who are regularly using the social network Twitter, so you know that you are limited to 140 characters, which sometimes can be frustrating but a great exercise to learn to be synthetic.

However, indian society ThreeSea Technologies Private Limited since August 2016 offers users a very simple Twitter dedicated application called Stormit (free on iOS / Android), which lets you write tweets over 140 characters, by applying cuts.

The record is rather successful with several tweets posted burst, thus appearing in the timeline of your followers (followers) with a type indicator 1 / N and 2 / N … N is the total number of tweets.

A feature also allows for viewing your short messages to make sure they are readable and the application will automatically connect to your Twitter account if you already have a classic application for tweeter.

See you on Twitter!
