Aimsir is a weather app that gives detailed forecasts in the Irish language. It lets you know what the weather's going to be like where you are, and also shows you what the weather's like right now in any part of the world. While it's doing that, it also teaches you lots of Irish words and phrases.
Aimsir (pronounced 'am-sher', the Irish word for 'weather') uses data from OpenWeatherMap to give accurate and detailed current and seven day forecasts for your present location. Aimsir's forecasts also provide information on wind strength and direction, atmospheric pressure and humidity.
On the "Timpeall an Domhain" (Around the World) screen, you can click on any location on the planet and the current weather will be displayed - in Irish. You can also share this forecast on Social Media.
In addition to providing weather information, the aim of the app is to present the user with as wide range of much Irish language vocabulary as possible. While the app is attractively designed, with many beautiful images and informative icons, a large amount of the weather data is presented in text format, so the user is exposed to a large number of Irish words and phrases.
Aimsir includes a detailed glossary section where all of the Irish words and phrases used are translated into English. In addition to the translations, there are other useful tools that allow you select numbers and dates and see them written in Irish.
Aimsir is the perfect tool to brush up your Irish language skills or maybe just learn a few words.
Moonswing will add even more features to Aimsir in forthcoming releases, including audio clips for the Irish vocabulary. In the meantime 'Bain Triail As!' (Give it a try!).

Ratings and Reviews
Simple app, helps learning more Irish
I downloaded this because I'm a weather junkie and a language junkie. This is perfect both as a practical weather app and as an aid in increasing my vocabulary (related to weather).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
