RepkaSoft announces a breakthrough update to YoWindow, a weather application that has been Google Play Editor's Choice for a couple of years now. The app displays any weather over real photographs giving that exceptionally realistic "view from the window" sensation. Plus, it allows fast-forwarding with a swipe for instant weather forecast also represented visually.
A typical weather app is a widget staying on the screen of a smartphone displaying temperature, some icons and may be animations here and there. Booooring.
Meet YoWindow - an innovating approach to weather apps and the entirely new way to display weather overall. Where other apps maidenly show temperature and glyphs of elements, YoWindow images realistic scenery with drops of rain pouring down and meting in puddles of water, bright sun beams penetrating the cloudy sky or blizzard freezing away occasional strangers from streets.
Yes, YoWindow is the first weather application that depicts photorealistic animated landscapes that accurately reflect the real weather outside the window. The weather on the smartphone screen is synchronized with multiple precise weather data providers, so the sun goes down in the actual time of the sunset, the moon phase is accurate too, the animated wind blows with exact strength its real cousin blows outside and so on.
Needless to say, a user can configure geography to display local weather or set it to a distant place to see the weather there. Swiping a finger across the screen allows quickly fast-forwarding time to learn weather two hours later or the next day. Among other useful options are an alarm-clock with nice rural sounds, a screensaver, and a cloud radar to see where thunderclouds go in real-time.
What makes YoWindow truly shine is animations. Absolutely realistic, they can be applied to a number of built-in sceneries and to any photograph of some real place. Even a view from the window will do. Importantly, battery consumption remains very modest even on budget devices.
"YoWindow is so straightforward and intuitive that checking the weather with it is literally as simple as just taking a look at your window", says Pavel Repkin, chief developer of YoWindow. "We believe, YoWindow revolutionized the way people use weather apps. Probably that is why the app received Editor's Pick on Google Play and millions of users all over the world."

YoWindow is available for Android 4.0 or higher. YoWindow is free with in-app advertising.
