Hear that thud? Another leg kicked out from under the old model. The National Weather Service Southern Region Headquarters is promoting an experimental mobile web page.
innovation.srh.noaa.gov/NWSwidget takes the user to a mobile ready webpage. Entering a zip code in the mobile browser yields a pretty good looking mobile site, and it has an hourly grid which is popular.
And it resolves very well on a computer.
It is an interesting choice to not go with a standalone app. The promotion does remind people they can bookmark to the mobile desktop, I wonder how many users know how to do this versus downloading an app. NWS does gain the advantage of not having to deal with an app and iOS versus Android.
Take note…no ads.
Wonder how many legs on this stool of ours.
