Weather Puppy, a Weather App That's Actually Cute
Suraj Hemnani thinks weather apps are boring, so he started Weather Puppy, a brand new weather app that has cute pooches on it. With 72 puppies and 4 themes, Weather Puppy makes checking weather conditions fun. The puppy changes along with the weather and time, so if it's bright and sunny outside, for example, the featured pup may be wearing shades. Open the app on a rainy day and you'll see a soaked puppy wrapped in a towel. Check the weather before bed and puppy may already be sleeping soundly.
The Miami-based startup has also teamed up with dog shelters and non-profits across America, allowing them to fundraise by selling their own branded themes within the app. Weather Puppy's partner charities include Paws4You, Detroit Dog Rescue, the Pennsylvania SPCA, the Austin Humane Society, the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA, the Humane Society of Broward County, Animal Humane New Mexico, the San Antonio Humane Society, The Anti-Cruelty Society, the Humane Society of Utah, SPCA Tampa Bay, and Animal Haven.
