Sky Motion Launches Free, High Accuracy Weather App, Powered by its Proprietary Technology and Platform
MONTREAL, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – After three years of R&D,
Software developer Sky Motion Research Inc. announces the official
launch of SkyMotion, a suite of mobile and desktop applications based
on its new weather forecasting platform, that will most accurately tell
you when precipitation will start and end. The app can be downloaded
for free for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. For other smartphones,
tablets and other computers users, an online version is also available
for free on its website.
Unlike traditional weather apps, SkyMotion takes the guesswork out of
the Probability of Precipitation (P.O.P.). Using geolocation, radar observation, motion tracking and
other technology borrowed from the computer graphic and video game
industry, the application provides highly-localized forecasts by
tracking every rain cloud’s movement over the U.S.A and Canada in
real-time, automatically creating a new personal forecast every five
minutes that is unique to the 1 km(2) user’s location. Additionally, the SkyMotion app can be used
year-round as it tracks all types of precipitation such as rain, snow
and freezing rain.
With over 40 years of combined experience in image processing, software
and video game development, Sky Motion Research’s Founder and CTO,
AndrÃ© LeBlanc, and CEO, Maxime Julien, are re-inventing short-term
weather forecasting. They are confident that SkyMotion offers people
the most accurate precipitation forecasts currently available on the
“This technology is beneficial for industries, businesses, and anyone
who checks weather forecasts on a daily basis”, says Julien. “Imagine
the difference it could make for people engaging in outdoor activities,
commuters, festival organizers, construction crews, even farmers.
Having advanced knowledge of precipitation saves time and money, and
helps people make the most out of their day by working around the
weather.” In fact, Julien notes that current users have quickly made a
habit of checking the application several times a day.
