View weather in real time
bit.ly/balloon433 After rapidly cycling through a number of cities, Balloon. Earth selects a location and lets you see a visual interpretation of the weather as it is right now. It works by blending real-time weather data with 3D map renderings – so if it is raining, you get to see the intensity of the drops overlaid on a map of the city; and if it’s sunny, buildings are drenched in warm light. Clicking the globe icon in the bottomright corner takes you elsewhere, while selecting the paper aeroplane icon lets you share on social media. You can switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit, and make use of the Balloon. Earth Chrome extension, too.
