It’s Monday morning in New York City and in the course of 3 hours, the weather has gone from rain to sleet to snow to cloudy. Such is the season it seems, one minute you’re walking around in a light jacket in awe of the warm weather you’re having in February; and the next you’re huddled on the couch with Netflix and wine as a blizzard rages outside your window.
Each morning I wake up, I have my preferred mobile apps that I check–starting with mail, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Facbeook. It’s amazing how mobile apps have become an integral part of everyday life; when I travel I have my go-to apps that do everything from assist in the early planning phases of my trip to helping me get from one city to the next while abroad. I am always on the lookout for the latest mobile app to add to my repertoire and I just might have found it with Poncho.
What is Poncho?
Poncho is a customizable weather app that delivers forecasts daily to your phone. What sets Poncho apart from other standard weather apps is the cheeky style in which weather is given. Sassy quotes, silly memes, hilarious gifs are used to put a smile on your face when checking the weather (when was the last time a weather app did that?)
What Makes Poncho Such a Great App?
Whether you’re a full time traveler, looking at weather for the upcoming weekend at home or just into the latest apps–Poncho does more than just show you the weather. In addition to showing you today’s forecast and the weather for the coming week, Poncho also shares wind speed, will advise on parking (available to NYC only), pollen levels and transit routes! Ladies, Poncho also has an option of “hair forecasts,” so you know whether today will be one to cause frizz or one worth getting up early to style your hair for.
Why Download Poncho?
Let’s be honest, you can get the weather delivered to you by any number of ways. You can look at designated weather apps, the news, the Weather Channel or just look out your window and take an educated guess at how the day will unfold. So, why download Poncho? Poncho takes a relatively boring task of looking up weather and makes it fun and entertaining with endearing quotes and hilarious style; it kicks off your day with a style and delivers weather with a bit of attitude and sass that isn’t done elsewhere.
