**Featured as "New and Noteworthy" after our first 2 weeks.**
**Featured as "What's Hot" our second and third month.**
A true weather app for kids designed by a 6 year old boy (and his meteorologist dad). Power packed with real time weather conditions, forecasts, science and fun facts about the weather, plus it is interactive making it fun for the kids. This includes math and science with S.T.E.M in mind to make parents and teachers happy as well.
-An eye-catching display of the weather with a kid or animal avatar that is dressed for conditions and short term forecasts. Use your hometown or pick a new location to track.
-Change your avatar and make the animals either a boy or a girl.
*Wear? This interactive feature lets you change the weather on your own when it might be boring outside. Raise or lower the temperature, make it sunny, rainy, snowy, or anything in between. See how your avatar will dress in those conditions.
-Educational: Trivia, fun facts, safety tips, and extreme weather records. Learn something new every day of the year. Topics include: Animal Weather, Clouds, Expressions, Extreme Weather, Instruments, Lightning, Nursery Rhymes and Song Lyrics, Rainbows, Sky Color, Seasons, Top US Cities for snow, US State Records, Weather Folklore, Weather Map symbols.
-Math: Includes a Fahrenheit to Celsius calculator
-Graphing: Plot basic weather conditions and keep track by week and month. A great way to introduce kids to a key element of S.T.E.M graphing
Imagine parents and kids spending 5-10 minutes each evening discussing the weather of the day, plot it on the graph, learn something new, and then figure out how to dress for school the next day. Then double-check the weather again in the morning. Our hope is that Kid Weather will be used by kids and with their parents as a useful tool.
**Our goal is to add more kid and animal avatars and features. Your support will help that happen very soon. We look forward to your feedback.

I have children aged 3,5,7,8, and 10
I like this app because it grows with your child. I feel it is an awesome educational tool as well! It would be absolutely perfect if you could customize which buttons are shown/available for each individual child - being able to personalize individual profiles.
I paid 1.99 and feel it was a very reasonable price. I love the graphics and colors! I would happily pay more if individual profiles were able to be customized to show limited options per child.
We use this app every single day and love it!
Updated (Ditto to "Stuck on Splash Screen")
The app is back up and working...still love it! Glad it's fixed. Thanks!!
(Original review: I love this app, but have been unable to use it for days...won't go past the opening screen. My device software is up-to-date. I keep checking for updates to the app, but alas, no updates, and still not working. Miss this app, please fix!)
Updated now works (was: Stuck on splash-screen)
Updated to 5 stars, with original review below.
The app now works. My 7 and 11 y/o boys like the app. I kinda wish they was a simple mode to show what to wear for the hottest condition of the day. It's supposed to be 82 and sunny today but in the morning it shows to wear long sleeves shirts.
Otherwise good app.
Original review (1 star):
The app get stuck on the splash screen with an initial "loading wheel" showing. The loading wheel eventually goes away but it stays stuck on the splash screen.
Same result on the kids iPhone 5 and my iPhone 6, both with the latest OS installed.
Will update rating if it gets unstuck.
