    Info Wezzoo "Crowd" weather app

    I've searched for Wezzoo and can find nothing, so I hope that this isn't a repost of something. Apologies if I've missed something.

    If, like me, you like to know the actual real-time weather somewhere, rather then a forecast or out of date report, then I commend Wezzoo to you.

    The free to download and free to use app is available for most, if not all, mobile platforms and the whole concept is described on their website: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. There is also a BBC Click page and video here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] where Wezzoo is covered in the first 50 seconds or so.

    Essentially, you can post a report of the conditions, from a pre-determined list, and then add any or all of temperature, a photograph, a short comment and link to FaceBook and/or Twitter - I don't use either of those so don't know just how that part works.

    Your post then appears on the world map, which can be zoomed down to street level, and remains there for one hour after which it auto-deletes. if you took and posted a picture then that stays in a sidebar for much longer.

    The more who sign up and post to this service, the more useful it will become.

    But be warned, to a saddo like me it can become strangely addictive!

    Thanks to iBozz

    Looks good. Would need more action for me though - approx fifty reports for the whole of the UK isn't going to cut it. It is early doors, granted.

    Early days indeed, and the more who sign up the better it will become!

    Sprog The Elder works outdoors and travels a lot and, after a trial, they have abandoned BBC Weather and switched to the Norwegian Weather Service which has proved more accurate than any other.

    Give it a try - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - it covers the UK to a very local level.

    But the more who sign up to Wezzoo the better.

    Thanks to iBozz

    That site is proving more accurate atm for where I am. BBC weather says cold and pissing it down. Sun's cracking the flags ffs.

    The Met Office? Not in my experience!
