Why Integrate Weather Features into Your Outdoor Recreation App

Now, deep into the ages of smartphone technology, there are likely many apps for “that”.

Technology evolves and improves, and policy imperatives shift over time. The climate crisis demands creativity to power the economy without emitting more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Earth is approaching a tipping point — one that requires new and reliable sources of clean energy. A Brief Overview of Energy in the United States In the United States, renewable sources of energy generation are accelerating, accounting for...

But a warmer, more volatile climate is putting Earth’s hydrological cycle on fast-forward. The wets are trending wetter, the dries are drier. We are faced with too much water – or not nearly enough. The western US is enduring a 1200-year “Megadrought”, made worse by climate change. Cities are running out of water; fires and thick palls of smoke have become a daily fixture on local weather maps; all while a 7-8% increase...

6 AerisWeather Features to Convert Mobile App Users to Paid Subscribers

In 2020 alone, mobile apps from the App Store and Google Play Store grossed more than $111 billion from in-app purchases according to SensorTower – a nearly three-fold increase from 2016. With so many great mobile apps launching every day in a hyper-competitive market, developers need to understand what options they have in providing value to app users to remain relevant in the marketplace. We’ve all thumbed through poorly-designed apps and been interrupted by ads that completely disrupt the user experience, it’s unpleasant and distracting when done incorrectly.
