Aimsir is a weather app that gives detailed spoken and written forecasts in the Irish language. It lets you know what the weather's going to be like where you are, and also shows you what the weather's like right now in any part of the world. With audio added, you can hear the current forecast for your location and all of the Glossary phrases in beautiful spoken Irish.
Aimsir (pronounced 'am-sher', the Irish word for 'weather') uses data from OpenWeatherMap to give accurate and detailed current and five day forecasts for your present location. Aimsir's forecasts also provide information on wind strength and direction, atmospheric pressure, cloud cover and humidity.
On the "Timpeall an Domhain" (Around the World) screen, you can click on any location on the planet and the current weather will be displayed - in Irish. You can also share this forecast on Social Media.
In addition to providing weather information, the aim of the app is to present the user with as wide range of much Irish language vocabulary as possible. Aimsir includes a detailed glossary section where all of the words and phrases used are spoken in Irish and also translated into English. There are also useful tools that allow you select numbers and dates and hear them spoken - as well as seeing them written - in Irish.
Aimsir is the perfect tool to brush up your Irish language skills or maybe just learn a few words.
Moonswing will add even more features to Aimsir in forthcoming releases, including audio clips for the Irish vocabulary. In the meantime 'Bain Triail As!' (Give it a try!).

Molaim 'Aimsir' dóibh siúd a bhfuil suim acu sa Ghaeilge agus spéis i réamhaisnéis na haimsire.
Good app for accurate local forecast and for those with an interest in the Irish language.

The screenshots give a very fair indication of the wide range of weather-related vocabulary that 'Aimsir' provides in both written and spoken Irish. It is not clear to us what level of detail is missing to merit a 1 star review.
