From a land where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime comes Ice and Fire, a weather app featuring the breathtaking scenery from HBO’s epic new series, Game of Thrones.
Choose a location in this weather-driven storytelling app (or use your built-in GPS locator) and view a scene from Westeros (and beyond) that matches the current weather of that location, whether snow, rain, sun or fog. Users also can select multiple locations and simply swipe between them to see a range of scenes, accompanied by onscreen temperature and time.
You're joking, right?
This app is a glorified weather app that allows you to flip between several animated gifs. Aside from being pretty on your desk, it doesn't really do anything.
Unless you're panting mad for every little bit of 'Game of Thrones' you can get your hands on, this will bore you silly in about five minutes.
A bit of substance, please? A character guide might be nice. Some interactive maps, maybe?
I know HBO is trying to fan interest to a fever pitch, but this ain't gonna do it.
Neat free app
Neat free app. It would be better if there were more options & it does seem weather is always Pentos. But i added some places across the US where relatives live & the world (my son visits China this May) & its neat to see the weather differences. I couldnt find his Chinese city (Taizhou in Zhejiang. I found a Taizhou in a different province (Jiangsu)) though so had to go with Shanghai. What really bugs me is it gives the GoT date of 4/17 as if thats the season premier date. Its been on 2 weeks here already (as of 4/11). I almost missed it as i checked the app for the date. If all you want is a quick check of the current temp, its a cute little non busy non complicated app. Didnt realize it was such a big size, need to work on that.
This is a (Great) Promo
I love this app, but since a number of people have given it low ratings, I think some (rather obvious) points need to be made:
This is an interactive weather app, which is readily apparent from the screen shots.
This is also a promotional app, which is also readily apparent from the screen shots.
That being said, I love this application, and would recommend it to fans of the show and series. I am looking forward to new locations being added as the series progresses (with fingers crossed for Harrenhal on a cloudy night with bats flying amongst the towers).
