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, Lifehacks, Horoscopes, Comics, and more!

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.

Has potential but feels too silly


I appreciate the approach of an informal app that gives you the weather through a silly character, but the execution comes off as tacky, unfocused, and difficult to use. The idea of weather updates as notifications that integrates to your routine is fantastic. However the actual current weather is hidden by a large block of text - usually a forced joke aimed at millennials. The focus of my morning notification should be the weather now, and any changes I might encounter throughout the day so I can prepare for them. When i actually launch the app I shouldn't have to find the weather among other unrelated blocks. Some of the other features are useful, but as a weather app - the focus should be the weather. Finally, the UI design is bold and interesting to look at, but HEAVILY distracting from the content. Additionally, not being able to skip the introduction video nor signing up WITHOUT a phone number is incredibly irritating.



It’s a pretty silly and fun weather app- I set my notifications for once in the morning, but you can set up notifications for later in the afternoon as well, along with options for pollen, wind, UV Index and wind speed. There’s usually a funny gif/joke when you open the app, along with an overview of the day. If you scroll just a bit, you have an hourly forecast, followed by the five day forecast. It’s a pretty fun way to check out the weather!

There’s also an option that allows you to see what your commute will be like- seems useful, but I haven’t used it.

I absolutely love it


To be honest, the Apple Weather App was so bland and not fun to look at, so I’d always forget I had it! I’d always end up googling the weather instead of using the app. Today I made the change to Poncho, and let me tell you, this app is AMAZING!! I love the stickers it comes with it and the easy to understand weather forecasting. It even tells you the pollen production and if your hair will stay great. I love it so much I’m writing a review on it!! Get it!! You won’t regret it!
