People who live in places with sudden changes in weather conditions now have an app that lets them know if it is conducive enough for them to go outside. This app is known as It’s Cool. The app is a weather app designed to alert you when the weather is nice enough. Currently, this app is only available on iOS.
According to the developer, this weather app was born from the fact that we spend too many summer days and nights inside our homes. Most times, we have no idea how long we spend within our homes, sheltered from the weather outside. According to the developer, warm seasons are meant to be spent outdoors, and a weather app like It’s Cool could serve as a reminder that we should be outside, enjoying the great outdoors.
It’s Cool is actually quite cool to use. when you download it, you are greeted by a cute welcome design and the option to set the temperature to either Fahrenheit or Celsius. On the bottom of the screen, you see the current temperature, a description of the current weather, and how many hours until your preferred temperature is available outside. You can set your preferred temperature by sliding the dial at the bottom between the temperatures. Once you set the desired temperature, the app sets an alarm to notify you about it later.
Now, some people might say that it is better to simply go outside and check the weather for yourself. However, if you are really busy at work in the house, or otherwise occupied, it is possible that the last thing on your mind is stepping outside. That’s why the notification is so useful.
Now, the summer season will soon be at an end, so there’s technically not much time to make up for staying indoors for the past few months. At the very least, the weather app would help you save on the electricity bills accumulated by leaving the air-conditioning on all day.
