Meet Brella, a beautiful and thoughtful weather app that takes the "um" out of the forecast and delivers your personalized weather forecast daily!
NEW - Siri & Alexa Support
Brella is compatible with the most advanced voice assistants in town, and bringing some Personality! You can record a custom phrase to get your personalized forecast from Siri, as well as suggested shortcuts throughout iOS. For Alexa, just say "Alexa, ask Brella Weather..." for your personalized forecast, what the weather will be like, or just what to wear. Brella has custom Personality phrases for Alexa and Siri too, part of the fun is hearing them out loud!
Beautiful, Thoughtful Design
Brella streamlines the crowded weather forecast down to its most essential elements. Bold, vibrant colors indicate the temperature at a glance, while temperature and conditions are presented with crisp, bold text. The hourly forecast provides a clean, yet detailed look at the day’s weather, while the daily forecast makes comparing temperature ranges nearly instantaneous.
While we were teaching Brella how to translate your wardrobe into a readable forecast, we might have let this super-powered AI spend a little too much time online. From pop culture and movie references to delightful messages and cheesy compliments, Brella adds that personal touch in a personalized daily forecast that will make you smile, cringe, or sminge. Look for seasonal updates!
Always checking the weather in the morning to see what to wear? Have the answer right on your lock screen when you wake up with Brella’s personalized forecast. You can choose exactly the type of information you want in your notification, from bare-bones essential weather to a detailed forecast summary. In addition, you can check out what wild wisdom Brella has to offer at any time through the Today Widget in Notification Center, or using your voice with Alexa. Note: In-app purchase required for some features.

Ratings and Reviews
Better than Apple’s
I love the customisation and accuracy! I can even set the notification’s description to either a simple or detailed one. The way the devs typed the description out is lovely, it’s casual yet informative.
I just hope more people would download and leave reviews already, to show how awesome this app is! :D Keep doing what you’re doing devs!
Very nice UI. Will there be a widget soon?
Having a widget would be helpful. Thanks!
