Belo unleashes national and local weather app for iPad and iPhone

We invite you weather hounds to give this app a try, and let us know what you think.

Personally, we think the best way for anyone with an iPhone or iPad to get their weather is through (optimized for mobile) weather summary.

But there may be times when you want something different. And you're not in the mood for Tom Sherry.

In which case, Belo Corp. (the company that operates and owns Spokane's KREM) has just unleashed its new Weather App for iOS (iPhone and iPad).

They're calling it WeatherCaster and here's a video showing how it works:

It's available at no cost through the iTunes store.

It's designed, we're told, to work anywhere across the country and offers weather alerts, animated radars and interactive maps. 

In case you really like Tom Sherry, the app supposedly also sucks in local forecasts, news and video from Belo’s TV stations.
