“The clever interface and remarkably simple user experience provided by Weddar, along with the usefulness of its feature set guarantee we’ll see uptake expand steadily across the world as more people discover this App Store gem”
“Weddar Report: iPhone App Is Twitter for Weather”; “Think of Weddar, which launches today, as something like FourSquare or Instagram, only for weather”; “a simple, easy interface.”
“Weddar’s greatest quality is that it’s hyper-local”; “...the app’s crowdsourced and mobile nature could give it an edge if the idea takes off with enough iPhone users”;
Gizmodo (App of the Day)
“The app's is nicely designed and the UI for reporting the weather is simple and attractive.So that's good!”

“If you find weather reports with their temperature and humidity readings confusing, you might prefer Weddar.”
“Crowdsourced weather information from a free app—sign me up.”
Weddar is the first weather service powered by people.
In Weddar you have real people reporting on how the weather feels, not machines, bringing a personal touch to weather services.
Instead of the usual and generic “New York, 93º f, 73% humidity, NE light wind.” reports, in Weddar, someone, somewhere in Central Park will tell you that the weather “Feels Perfect”, while another one near the river will tell you that it “Feels Good but windy”, because weather conditions really are different within the same city.
If you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or an iPad, you can now contribute location-based weather reports from where you are.
You can also make “Weddar Requests” for specific places anywhere you’d like to go or when planning your vacations anywhere in the world. A “Weddar Reporter” will answer it.
With almost 1.000.000 Reports in more than 13.500 locations of 147 countries around the world, the Weddar community is growing stronger each day.
With the new update, Weddar is now available in Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Thai, Malay, English, Portuguese (from Portugal and Brazil), Japanese, French, Spanish, Korean, Italian, German and Hungarian.
So... How does it feel? :)
- That long lasting "?" location bug is finally fixed;
- Better timing for permission popups on install;
- Life is better;
Ratings and Reviews
FINALLY I CAN ONLY BLAME THE WEATHER ON MYSELF! I LOVE THIS APP!
users of this app can quickly report on what the weather is like at their location. A total of nine options are available to choose from, ranging from “Hell” to “Freezing.” Users can also set levels for “Cloudy,” “Rainy,” “Windy,” and “Snowy” via a tab bar, at the bottom of the Report screen. Once you’ve reported on the weather in your area, your report will appear on a map in the Check screen. Other reports will presumably appear here, too. Furthermore, users can check other locations (and make requests for weather reports for other locations), along with viewing statistics and searching for reports. A profile screen outlines everything about you: The reports you’ve made, locations you’ve tagged, points you’ve earned (via making reports), requests you’ve made, and more, can be viewed on this screen. A leaderboard shows off the service’s top contributors, and settings can also be toggled within the app. All in all, Weddar looks like a great app – and something iOS fans will undoubtedly enjoy.
You now have some privacy
You can log in with email rather than Facebook or Twitter. You can also enable anonymous reporting.
But connectivity has problems. Always has problems "connecting to the interwebz". Maybe they'd have more success if they tried to connect to the Internet. Some of the jokes are funny, until the app stops working right.
Also, the reporting system could be improved. I think the levels for wind, rain, etc. are effective. But the differences between "ok", "good" and "great" are too subjective and could mean anything. My "ok" could be the same as someone else's "hell", so even if I look at the reports around my destination, they are actually not helpful at all because I have no idea how I should interpret the feelings of strangers. Basically, the system itself renders the app useless.
I want to believe
I absolutely love the concept and design of Weddar. I like saying how the weather is, as opposed to being told. However it is frustrating when I do want to check the weather and there are only four or five reporters in MANHATTAN online in a given day. Some more advertising of the app needs to be done to actually provide the service this app is supposed to be doing, because if no one is saying how they feel, the app is not useful when I want a report. Building a huge following is the most important thing this app needs to improve on, because all the groundwork is laid. The app is beautiful and fun, so it should only be matter of time.
