LONDON, August 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Climate data and storm trackers are amongst the new features launched on MeteoEarth for iPad 1.2. The new features, designed for planning travel and watching out for summer thunderstorms, are released in time for the last few weeks of summer.
The latest version of MeteoEarth for iPad, the stunning app from MeteoGroup that brings the weather to life on a 3D globe, has been released. In Version 1.2, users can switch from the normal forecast mode to the climate data mode. This feature includes a global overview of climatic conditions and users can check the climate for any location around the world including temperature, water temperature and rainfall throughout the year, making this the perfect tool when planning to travel.
MeteoEarth for iPad 1.2 also introduces new weather elements. Previously on MeteoEarth users could see the forecast precipitation but couldn't differentiate between the type of precipitation, now MeteoEarth shows the difference between rain and snow. The cloud cover layer has been enhanced with a new lightning feature so that users can track thunderstorms and a new storm feature enables users to track tropical storms taking place around the world with information including category, type and wind speed.
A new function on the app now shows precise information for pinpointed locations on the map, including forecast rainfall, percentage of cloud cover, temperature etc.
