Weathermob is a crowdsourced weather app with 100,000 monthly active users in 136 countries who create the Weathermob ‘army,’ collecting weather data all around the globe and improving the quality of everyone’s weather information.
Weathermob provides weather from the ‘ground up’ rather than forecasts which come from the "sky down". Weather and climate data is extremely important for business. Weathermob lets the social component of weather reporting come to the fore with real-time weather data and mapping in an app.
No longer a start up but this company has been in the news this year. Xobni is the smart way to manage your inbox. It includes updates from your contacts on LinkedIn Facebook and Twitter. Xobni was acquired by Yahoo for $48M in July 2013.
Yakit is an iOS app that makes it easy to make your own commercials or animated videos. It allows people to animate, just by speaking into their phone. Teachers from kindergarten to high school have adopted it for their iPad labs.
It meets educational core standards, and kids are rabidly using it because it feels like a toy. There is some great storytelling and creativity with the app that kids are expressing and the designers promise some fun stuff fresh on the horizon.
