To increase independence or just for fun, iDress for Weather provides children and adults, with or without disabilities, the opportunity to make connections between weather conditions and clothing through bold, brightly colored images, a simple swipe, and without the need for reading or math skills.
By setting individualized temperature ranges (cold to one person is not the same as cold to someone else!) and putting individual clothes in the closets (What's in your closet? You decide!), iDress for Weather is customizable for anyone living in any climate with any personal preferences or needs. As reported by parents and teachers alike, iDress for Weather is a great tool in increasing a child's independence and reducing conflicts in morning routines.
Other optional settings include summer or winter trees, fahrenheit or celsius. Displaying the wind speed and humidity are also optional settings.
How it Works:
Everyone experiences temperatures differently based on geography and body functioning. iDress for Weather takes this into account by allowing you to define what is hot, warm, cool, cold, and really cold.
Until late afternoon, a single swipe to the left will display a closet with clothing to match the forecasted high. In the evening, the closet will display clothing for the overnight low. You decide what goes in each closet.
How to Customize the Weather Screen:
*To select fahrenheit or celsius, tap the “i” on bottom left corner of the weather screen and then tap "Units".
*To select a location, tap the “i” on bottom left corner of the weather screen and then tap “Location”.
*To set temperature levels (strongly recommended), tap the “i” on bottom left corner of the weather screen and then tap "Temperature Levels".

Great to show developmentally disabled adults how to dress. But when you change from winter trees to summer, you have to keep tapping it numerous times to get it to switch back. The winter trees are scary for kids. Reminds me of the haunted forest in the Wizard of Oz. Would suggest more friendly theme like a snowman in foreground.
Need to bring it back to the old days
You all might not listen to this but I do love the app and the way it shows what type of clothes we wear but it doesn't update like it use to also it doesn't take the wind chill and heat index into account for picking what type of clothing we should wear I think it's time for me to move on with this app and not worry about this app anymore sorry
Developer Response ,
Thank you for giving us this feedback. We will take your idea about heat index and wind chill into our discussions for future updates. We understand how those factors can certainly effect clothing choices. Thanks for your suggestion.
Bases Clothing Only on Daily High
The app shows the current temperature as 56 degrees with a high of 76. Its suggesting clothes for the “warm” category (sandals, t-shirt, shorts).
Also, I tried to customize the temperature levels. Initially, it worked, but as soon as I closed and we-opened the app, the levels were wonky (not what I put in and not the default).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
