Poncho: Wake Up Weather

By Poncho

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The coolest weather app out there is now even better! Poncho’s fun, free weather forecasts will wake you up with a smile, no matter the weather. Each forecast tells you what to expect for the day ahead, along with something to jumpstart your morning like an Astrological Outlook, Morning Mantra, or Lifehack.

Poncho’s a cool cat who writes personalized weather forecasts just for you! You’ll be warned about everything from frizz to pollen and transit delays, always with a fun joke or GIF. And when things get serious, he’s got severe weather alerts too.

No need to open a weather app ever again! You can set your location and automatically get the weather forecast for wherever you are. Expand Poncho's notification on your lock screen to see what he wrote for you that day. Share with your friends, or just have a laugh before getting up on the right side of the bed.

You can message with Poncho too — his iMessage app has awesome new stickers. It’s the best way to convey what you mean without saying anything. Use Poncho to drop in on a friend or to bail on your plans. He’s your ultimate wingman.

Weather doesn’t need to be boring. The whole world is in love with this cat — find out why.

Saved my marriage

Love this app. My wife and I often go to bed angry with each other. When we wake in the morning to one of Poncho's funny weather forecasts, we find it hard to stay mad. Now I don't know how much longer we'll be together, the wife and I, but I DO know that as long as Poncho's around, we have a fighting chance. Thanks, ya little kitty kat! Meow meow.

2nd best thing to wake up to

Every morning, afternoon, and night I'm given a notification of the weather from Poncho. It is wonderful since he always has such quick joke or helpful tip along with his weather reading.
Basically, get this app if you want to add a little more fun to your weather.

This app is a joke

Saw this on Planet of the Apps and the founders clearly have no clue what they're doing. They're just throwing money and engineers into a bottomless pit of a concept that is half-baked at best. Too many hoops to jump through just to get the alarm to work. This indicates that they are hiring inexperienced coders and engineers and are providing zero guidance and management to the app's development. They're going to continue to burn through VC money with not a lot of growth to show for it. I can't believe they got another $2M of seed money.
