What can you use the app for?

Cumul.us is a very well known and popular site to go to find out about the weather in your region. It’s a one stop weather reporting site where you can go to get accurate and up to the minute information regarding the weather.

This sit is accurate because it collects a number of different forecasts from different sources and then combines them all. This means that the reports are as accurate as possible. They take averages of each report using the idea that a crowd is smarter than just one person. Deciding what to do based on the majority is much better than just asking one person. The information can also be predicted by people on the site which gives the site a nice community feel.

The site will also take this high quality weather information and use it to work out what you should be wearing. As the information is normally very accurate this makes it easy to decide whether or not you need to wear something warm.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Cumul.us is a unique site with a huge following. It’s unlike any other weather website because you can make your own predictions. There is a thriving community on the site which predict things on a regular basis.

What are the differences to other apps?

Unlike other applications this weather forecast doesn’t just have one report which is decided by itself. Actually the site collects numerous reports from various different sources including the users on the site. These reports are then averaged out to get the most accurate report possible. The ability to interact with the site makes it very interesting and exciting to use. This makes it possible for everyone to predict the weather.

Another difference with this application is that it gives you useful advice. Not only does it tell you about the weather and temperatures but it also suggests what you should wear. Deciding whether you need to wear a jacket or not can be quite difficult, but this site makes this really easy. The information is all agitated from various sources which makes it something that you can rely on.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Cumul.us has a really nice look and feel. It has a modern design and is really easy to use. You shouldn’t have any problem doing pretty much anything on this website. As soon as you visit the website you are presented with the forecast in a certain city. Alongside this there is also a display of what people are wearing.

It’s possible to customize the site to view certain regions of the country and the world. As the site is international and has quite a big following it can be used all over the world.

How does the registration process work?

If you want to customize the site to give you information about certain regions then you will need to registry. It is possible to use the site without registering however you will get a much more personalized experience by registering. Registering for an account is very easy and takes a matter of minutes. By registering you will also be able to create your own predictions. As soon as you have registered you then just have to log in. You won’t be sent an activation email which will make things really easy.

What does it cost to use the application?

The website is free for everyone to use and makes money from adverts which are displayed on every page of the site. These are small adsense adverts and aren’t a major problem for anyone. The clothing pictures are also adverts and it’s pretty fair to assume that the site makes commission from these links. By suggesting what you are going to wear you can help other people decide what they should wear.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Cumul.us is aimed at anyone who likes to find out valuable information about the weather rather than just the temperature.
