Sunny skies — Bermuda Radar 2.0 iPhone app released

Bermudian app designer David Zuill has just released version 2.0 of his Bermuda Radar app for iPhone.

The first five were given away by its creator as a charitable donation to the Bermuda Underwater Education Institute for their education programme fundraiser, and now they are available to the general public.

One of the very few apps designed specifically for the Bermuda market, Mr Zuill explained the app uses weather data from the Bermuda Weather Service (BWS) to provide a quick and easy reference for weather information on the iPhone.

The updated app has been completely redesigned for iOS 7 with a simplified interface and a fresh, clean design.

It also includes new features like an enlarged radar view, weather trend graphs, and the much-requested marine forecast.

“There was a lot of great feedback from the users (after I launched the first version of the app) and I heard what they had to say. The result is that the app is both more informative and easier to use.” Mr Zuill said.

The Bermuda Radar app uses data from BWS, including imagery from the Department of Airport Operations' Doppler radar installation. “The BWS have been supportive from the beginning. I am very grateful to them,” said the app designer.

The new app is designed for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch, and will also run on the iPad.

It costs $1.99, and those who bought the first version will receive the update for free.

Bermuda Radar 2.0 is available on the Apple AppStore https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bermuda-radar/id650561613
