MONTREAL, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - After three years of R&D, Software developer Sky Motion Research Inc. announces the official launch of SkyMotion, a suite of mobile and desktop applications based on its new weather forecasting platform, that will most accurately tell you when precipitation will start and end. The app can be downloaded for free for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. For other smartphones, tablets and other computers users, an online version is also available for free on its website.
Unlike traditional weather apps, SkyMotion takes the guesswork out of the Probability of Precipitation (P.O.P.). Using geolocation, radar observation, motion tracking and other technology borrowed from the computer graphic and video game industry, the application provides highly-localized forecasts by tracking every rain cloud's movement over the U.S.A and Canada in real-time, automatically creating a new personal forecast every five minutes that is unique to the 1 km2 user's location. Additionally, the SkyMotion app can be used year-round as it tracks all types of precipitation such as rain, snow and freezing rain.
With over 40 years of combined experience in image processing, software and video game development, Sky Motion Research's Founder and CTO, André LeBlanc, and CEO, Maxime Julien, are re-inventing short-term weather forecasting. They are confident that SkyMotion offers people the most accurate precipitation forecasts currently available on the market.
"This technology is beneficial for industries, businesses, and anyone who checks weather forecasts on a daily basis", says Julien. "Imagine the difference it could make for people engaging in outdoor activities, commuters, festival organizers, construction crews, even farmers. Having advanced knowledge of precipitation saves time and money, and helps people make the most out of their day by working around the weather." In fact, Julien notes that current users have quickly made a habit of checking the application several times a day.
