In recognition of Lightning Safety Awareness Week, Weather Decision Technologies announces Weather Radio alerting application for iOS with expanded features at reduced price
NORMAN, Okla., June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Weather industry leader Weather Decision Technologies (WDT) has released a completely redesigned version of its popular Weather Radio mobile application for iOS and reduced the price by half to $4.99 on both iOS and Android platforms. Weather Radio is a life-safety app, providing patented spoken alerts when you or your pre-set locations are in a hazardous weather area polygon, as defined by the National Weather Service. Weather Radio is the only weather app you need, allowing access to hourly, daily and extended forecast information, current radar, plus watches and warnings for up to 5 locations.
A $4.99 in-app yearly subscription expands the alert capability to include lightning notifications, informing users immediately when strikes enter and exit a radius of 6 miles around their current location, as well as predefined locations. Protect yourself and others at the beach, ballpark and golf course – or any outdoor activity.
Weather Radio is available today for download in the App Store and will be offered on Android devices in July.
"WDT is pleased to provide our customers an extensive list of new features at a reduced cost and also offer the ability for users to upgrade and receive potentially life-saving lightning notifications," says Mike Eilts, WDT's President & CEO. "WDT has heavily invested in its push alert infrastructure over the past several years. As a result, users know they can count on us to rapidly deliver critical weather alerts in times of need."
