Introducing accuracy and reliability to weather forecast reporting, Sky Motion Research Inc. has released its SkyMotion app for Android devices, as well as an improved version for iPhones. The application, which launched in mid-August, predicts with high efficiency when precipitation will start, its intensity, and precisely when it will end.
Using self-developed technology rather than traditional meteorological models to properly track precipitation, it achieves maximum accuracy by focusing on a short time span and the user’s precise location. Reading the intensity of rain or snow in the next two hours, it generates an easy-to-read, minute by minute forecast.
Unique in its field, SkyMotion is free and provides full coverage throughout North America. The app can now be used year-round as it tracks all types of precipitation such as rain, snow, freezing rain, ice pellets, and hail during all four seasons.
With more than four decades of experience in software development, Sky Motion Research Inc. CEO Maxime Julien, and Founder and CTO, André Leblanc, sought to re-invent weather forecasting.
“We’ve broken new ground today by becoming accessible to everyone in North America”, When it comes to weather, everyone settles for probability. Sky Motion Research has worked relentlessly to deliver something truly accurate and trustworthy. Our app helps people with their day-to-day activities and enhances their lives in ways that weren’t possible before.” - Maxime Julien
