See what's going around in your area today with Sickweather, the world's first "Doppler radar for sickness." Receive real-time alerts whenever you enter a known sick zone where others have recently reported being sick. Choose from several illnesses, including Flu, Norovirus, Pink Eye and Whooping Cough.
Sickweather uses a patent-pending process to track and map reports of illness from social media. Reports are represented by blue "SICK" map markers -- tap them for more information of exactly when they were reported. Some viruses can survive on surfaces for up to 48 hours and can have a viral life cycle of 2 weeks, so we color-code more recent reports as RED within 1 day, ORANGE within 2 days, YELLOW within 1 week, and we include reports as old as 2 weeks in BLUE.
As featured on the Today Show in the US and on Channel 4 in the UK, Sickweather has been honored among "100 Brilliant Companies" by Entrepreneur Magazine, "Top 5 Sites Crowdsourcing for Your Health" by George Washington University School of Public Health & Health Services, and has been recognized for identifying the early start of the 2012 flu season, 6 weeks before the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).

What's New in Version 1.1
Minor bug and stability fixes.
Great, lightweight app! I've been using it for a little while now, and I've really grown to appreciate the color coding of the sickness reports. That, combined with the alerts, makes this a really useful app for me and my family!
I want to stay healthy, so its great that i can use this app. However, I'm sure there are many like me who do not have social media, and would like to report whether THEY are sick. It would be a great feature. Other than that, well done!
Great first update!
Nice lightweight update -- good improvements to stability. Even more solid than before!
