Game of Thrones: Ice and Fire

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.
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.
Those of you who gave this app one star complaining that it's 'just a weather app' need to seriously read the description before downloading apps. It's a beautiful weather app, so much more interesting than the boring old ones most of us use. The little animation added to the photos is exquisite! I hope they will add more photos as the show continues on. I haven't seen yet if the pictures adjust and account for things like rain. If not, i hope they will consider upgrading and adding that! My favorite weather app!
You don't have to be a fan of the show to enjoy this beautiful app, but it does make you appreciate it more. I think it just needs more of a breakdown of the weather forecast for the day or week & maybe even clothing suggestions would make it more fun so that you could view some or the beautiful costumes from the show. And, yes, I would love to see the new places from season 2 added also. I recommend this app to everyone!
