What users say about winning the WMO Mobile Apps Awards. Do we deserve it?


In December 2020, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has recognized as the best weather app for outdoors, leisure, and sports. 15 international experts chose it among 120 mobile applications. More: we've got a special mention for our work with the community!

In the Community section of the app, we asked our users, what helped us to win the Awards, and if we deserved it.

As a result, in the comments of the poll, we received more than 342 messages and detailed reviews from users about what they really liked about the app, why they use it, and whether they recommend it to their friends.

Enjoy the most intersting of these inspirational reviews in this post. We have divided it into a few categories by sport and not only.

This is what users like the most in the app. Screenshot of the results of the poll in the Community section
