Who's it for?
ColdSnap! Frost Alarm is a must have application for gardeners, allotment holders and anyone else that wants a low maintenance, light weight frost warning system.
I produced the application specifically to warn myself of impending low temperatures having had our permaculture project in 2010 suffer frost damage as a result of a late frost. ColdSnap! is not intended to be a full blown weather application and does not replace your existing weather application or widgets. It is a lightweight application that, once installed and configured, you never need look at again.
Rely on ColdSnap! to check the forecast even when you forget. I use it myself, so you can be sure it’ll continue to be maintained.
ColdSnap! is perfect for all outdoor pursuits, ideal for fair-weather sailors planning a sailing weekend, fair-weather campers planning a camping trip, those with animals, livestock and poultry that need protection from low temperatures.
Protect those precious grape vines! If you're an amateur viticulturist like me, this is a must have app if you need reminding to cover up to save those first shoots of the year!
Farmers, drivers, rail companies can all benefit! Having commuted into London for many years, how I wished my rail operator had been forewarned of ice on the track
What's it for?
ColdSnap! Frost Alarm is a simple but effective way to ensure you are notified of low temperatures forecast in your area.
What's it do?
Nothing...until you need it to!
ColdSnap! Frost Alarm will periodically check the weather forecast and produce notifications whenever a low temperature is forecast.
Once the app has been run once, you never need look at it again. You can rely on ColdSnap! to do the checking.
ColdSnap! will even restart automatically if you restart your mobile, so months down the line when you've forgotten to keep an eye on the forecast, rest assured that ColdSnap! hasn't.
ColdSnap! Helping you work towards a sustainable future.
ColdSnap! is Weather Provider agnostic. The underlying app doesn't refer to or depend on any particular data provider. ColdSnap! is not distributed with any underlying forecast data, and does not redistribute forecast data that the user retrieves. For the sake of clarity ColdSnap! is similar to a web browser in that the user chooses what URL to browse for their weather. The format supplied by the chosen website is translated to ColdSnap! format in a generic way using definition files that can be imported without the need to update the ColdSnap! application itself. An NOAA definition has been included in this release to demonstrate the level of complexity that can be supported. This approach opens up the possibility for developers and other users to use ColdSnap! to browse and test their own weather services, or services they subscribe to. The ability to import will be enabled in a future release.
