The brand new Climate Earth 3D is a Hi-Def visualization of global weather conditions with forecasts generated by supercomputers and data updated every three hours, presented in a way never seen before!
Climate Earth 3D is not just a weather forecast App, also it is able to visualize the local and global climate conditions worldwide by animating the data it downloads, giving you the chance to understand the climate on a large scale.
Thereby it does not just download an animation loop that it will show over and over again!
Instead it will present the current, past or future wind or ocean streams in a way you have never seen it before as it generates the animation out of the data in realtime without the need to loop it. This generates a revolutionary user experience on that kind of App!
Additionally to the animated wind and ocean streams the following overlays can be selected to visualize the data by coloring the globe:
- Wind Speed at specified height
- Temperature at specified height
- Mean See Pressure Level: Air pressure reduced to sea level
- Total Precipitable Water: Total amount of water in a column of air stretching from ground to space
- Total Cloud Water: Total amount of water in clouds in a column of air from ground to space
Also Climate Earth 3D is able to show number values for all of these data for any point on earth by just tapping on it or for your current position by using GPS.
All that is shown on a 3D globe you can zoom in and out by pinching and rotate by swiping, surrounded by a fully intuitive user interface, specially designed for iOS 7!
And of course Climate Earth 3D comes with social sharing built in!
It is able to share a picture of the part of the map you are currently seeing, as well as recording the animations shown into a movie and you can send it to your friends!
Climate Earth 3D uses data by the Global Forecast System/NCEP/National Weather Service/NOAA, OSCAR/Earth & Space Research and Natural Earth.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app but
I Like the presentation a lot except
0. Pls fix ability to select current date now - or tell us we need to pay premium to use per current date --- or something, pls ... And NOW !
1.Cant select date - first used it in 15jan15 , is now 7apr15 , is stuck on jan date , I can update 1 hour at a time from January - you got to be kidding !
2. How about some major city identifiers like where is SanFrancisco ? vs say LA? Where is Moscow or any place for that matter - you want me to guess - really ?
3. Could you squeeze a 2 week projection out of your computer model ?
4. Had to delete this app and reload it to show current date now correct but don't press the < (back and forth) > will reload from 3 months ago and you can't get out of it unless you reload the app - then wind direction was not current did not agree even closely with current weather data . Developer -this Needs serious attention !
5. Idea behind this app is good but has some serious human factors issues for proper use
6 . A useful how to use instruction page could help , thx.
I know your working on it , good!
Concept is good , Joeh.

This is a simple but very informative app. I use it to monitor El Niño / La Niña and the climatic conditions in general in my part of the world. This is the only app that I am aware of that provides this important information. In addition the developer responds quickly to any issues one might have and resolves them just as quickly! Very well done all around.
I have always used this app and absolutely love it. It now loads very quickly and switching between wind and ocean is a snap. The poor reviews are, in my opinion, the result of people not understanding how to use the app. This app quickly provides information on global wind ( various altitudes) and ocean currents that are both interesting and useful. I might add that this information is dirt cheap as well. Brian, the developer, works very hard to maintain this application and puts forth a great deal of effort to respond to customer input and inquiries.
Though this app is indeed beautiful and plain fun to look at, it is not a "toy". This is serious scientific information that is very useful in any number of professions as well as recreational activities.
Keep up the great work Brian (if you don't go broke first)!!
Perhaps you should charge a whole lot more for this information and then it would be appreciated.
Best regards to all,
I do not like this app, Sam I am.
I do not like this app because every time you adjust the virtual earth to see a different part, even just slightly, you suddenly lose all infographic data you just downloaded, and it takes a really long time to load even over wifi. Why can't the app just keep displaying what it has already loaded and load new infographic as needed?
This would frustrate me even if it reloaded almost instantly but it doesn't so it really doesn't make for an enjoyable user experience.
Great app but spoiled for me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
