New app combines NOAA charts and weather data

Weather Services International launched a new iOS app that integrates NOAA navigational charts with an interactive map with customizable weather data.

The Intellicast Boating app provides complete coverage of the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii and the Caribbean, according to Weather Services International, one of The Weather Channel companies.

The app gives point-specific, localized short- and long-term weather updates. In addition, National Weather Service watches and warnings can be viewed either as text bulletins or overlaid within the interactive map.

“Blending state-of-the-art forecasting and leading-edge radar tools with the latest NOAA navigational charts, Intellicast Boating is an easy-to-use, always-available mobile app that enables all boaters … to gain access to expert-level tools and stay a step ahead of changing or threatening weather,” Weather Services International vice president of digital initiatives Jim Menard said in a statement.

Intellicast Boating is available from iTunes at introductory prices of $6.99 for the iPad and $4.99 for the iPhone. On Aug. 10, prices will increase to $14.99 and $9.99, respectively.
