Trying to track the weather is not always a predictable endeavor, but when you want mobile updates of current conditions and weather forecasts on the go, it’s nice to have a predictable app that’s easy to use and view. Global-Local is a new weather app by Best Search Infobrokerage Inc. that has some unique features. It isn’t the best weather app ever, but Global-Local does provide the weather basics along with options that provide a unique view of – you guessed it – global and local weather.
Global-Local uses the iPhone’s GPS function to locate a current position upon launch. The view provided is from the vantage point of space featuring most of the globe on screen. Users can navigate to all parts of the world, zoom in on a specific region or use the magnifying feature enabled by touching the screen for two seconds. A world-wide cloud formation view is also available that refreshes every three hours when enabled. The app stores and displays up to ten locations for at-a-glance current conditions. Locations are marked by information bubbles and can be added by simply tapping any desired location on the map. (more...)
