The Met Office iPhone and Android app have been shortlisted for the Best Consumer App in the Appster awards, to be presented on Oct 2nd in London.

This continues a successful year for both the iPhone and Android apps having been shortlisted for 3 different awards. The apps have also been voted No 1 in The Independent’s 10 Best Weather apps (28th June 2012) and were also listed in The Guardian’s top 50 apps (Mar 2012).

Derrick Ryall, Head of Public Weather Service at the Met Office said: “We are delighted that our iPhone and Android apps have been shortlisted for Best Consumer Apps in the Appster awards. It is fantastic to know that users across the UK have found the Met Office App so useful, both for keeping up to date with the latest weather forecast and allowing them to make informed weather dependent decisions. “

Mubaloo provided the Met Office with the designs, build and tracking for both the Android and updated iPhone weather applications.

Sarah Weller, Marketing Manager at Mubaloo said: “We are absolutely thrilled that the Met Office’s iPhone and Android app has been shortlisted for another award. The Met Office’s decision to develop mobile apps was a very significant move and highlighted their determination to provide weather information to the public in the fastest and most convenient way possible. It is fantastic to see the Met Office’s app receive such a high level of recognition across the industry.”

The iPhone and Android app have been downloaded over 3 million times and are the 14th most accessed app in the UK. Features of the app include 3 hourly forecasts out to 5 days ahead, UV forecast maps and information on the likelihood of rain. In addition to the apps, we also provide Smarter Weather for other smart phones and Mobile Weather, a graphics light version designed to be accessible on all web enabled mobile phones.
