Shine - Hyper-local Weather, Alerts, Home Safety
By Understory Weather
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Shine Weather gives you hyper-local weather forecasts and alerts. We harvest real-time weather data from revolutionary sensor technology that’s not available in any other weather app. You’ll get weather data that’s more reliable than current technology because Shine Weather is powered by patent-pending weather stations. When severe weather strikes, homeowners will have access to the most accurate storm information available. We collect unsurpassed ground-truth data on wind and hail so you can see the true story under the clouds.
With its unique, in-app Roof Lifetime Estimator, you can enter specific details of your roof and home location. Shine’s unique algorithm keeps you updated on the condition of your roof, projecting how much life remains and allowing you to plan in advance for one of a homeowner’s most expensive home maintenance tasks.

WHY SHOULD YOU DOWNLOAD THE SHINE WEATHER APP?
While traditional, radar-enabled weather centers build apps by collecting data that analyzes conditions observed in the atmosphere, Understory’s ground-truth-based detection is a marked enhancement in both resolution and precision, providing real time datasets and graphical views of the movement and intensity of weather events, which leads to better insight and early detection of risks.
