Poncho: Wake Up Weather
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.

What's New in Version 2.1.0
We've lots of new things in this release I'm excited about. Aside from iOS 11 support, my team has made a lot of changes to the weather feed to include more weather information and new content. Keep an eye out for horoscopes, comics, iMessage stickers, and more.
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.
