Meet Brella, a beautiful and thoughtful weather app that takes the "um" out of the forecast and delivers your personalized weather forecast daily!
NEW - Siri & Alexa Support
Brella is compatible with the most advanced voice assistants in town, and bringing some Personality! You can record a custom phrase to get your personalized forecast from Siri, as well as suggested shortcuts throughout iOS. For Alexa, just say "Alexa, ask Brella Weather..." for your personalized forecast, what the weather will be like, or just what to wear. Brella has custom Personality phrases for Alexa and Siri too, part of the fun is hearing them out loud!
Beautiful, Thoughtful Design
Brella streamlines the crowded weather forecast down to its most essential elements. Bold, vibrant colors indicate the temperature at a glance, while temperature and conditions are presented with crisp, bold text. The hourly forecast provides a clean, yet detailed look at the day’s weather, while the daily forecast makes comparing temperature ranges nearly instantaneous.
While we were teaching Brella how to translate your wardrobe into a readable forecast, we might have let this super-powered AI spend a little too much time online. From pop culture and movie references to delightful messages and cheesy compliments, Brella adds that personal touch in a personalized daily forecast that will make you smile, cringe, or sminge. Look for seasonal updates!
Always checking the weather in the morning to see what to wear? Have the answer right on your lock screen when you wake up with Brella’s personalized forecast. You can choose exactly the type of information you want in your notification, from bare-bones essential weather to a detailed forecast summary. In addition, you can check out what wild wisdom Brella has to offer at any time through the Today Widget in Notification Center, or using your voice with Alexa. Note: In-app purchase required for some features.

Ratings and Reviews
Amazing Design and Color!
As soon as I opened this app, I knew that I would love it. It’s so simple, but the colors are so bright and eye catching. The design is simplistic and it makes the weather easy to follow. The interface is colorful and sleek, making this my go to weather app. The notifications that this app sends makes choosing what to wear in the morning so much easier. You can select your desired range of temperature for each article of clothing, and when you wake up in the morning, the app tells you what you can wear! Amazing and simple, my favorite weather app I’ve seen so far.

Thank you! We really appreciate hearing from users what they like about the app :)
Love the feel and layout of this app. Haven’t received any notifications yet because I literally just got it. I bought the in app purchase to help support you. So time will tell if this is my daily driver. My only HUGE issue is that I’m a mans man. Muscles beard you know what I’m sayin and the pink icon color doesn’t really work for me. You should make several icon options for us to choose. Like a manly black or blue or orange or green. Lol anything but pink. If my buds see that I have this on my homepage I’m toast, finished and will forever be an outcast. So for now it will sit on page 3 in a deep folder and in page 3 of that folder to keep me safe. 💪👍😎

Thank you, man, great feedback! We can definitely look into some alternate app icons, but it sounds like your buds could use some Personality in their life ☔️
Great personal app
Nice job! As a Cornell alum I’m a fan of the brilliance coming out of the school. :) I wonder if there’s a way to have a calendar trigger, like if an event starts with “meeting” then Brella tells me to wear a work outfit versus my work-from-home clothes. That’d make this 10 stars out of 5 especially if I didn’t have to look at my schedule AND the weather to determine the kind of outfit to wear. Would require more setup at first and customization but I’d be down!
