While some smart alarm clocks are outfitted to also show you the temperature outside, this weather forecast app is designed to give you a wake up call. The Poncho app 'Wake Up Weather' gives personal weather forecasts alongside cute animations and fun jokes to put you in a good mood first thing, regardless of conditions outdoors.

The weather forecast app also includes bad hair day, pollen and public transit alerts to better prepare you for the day ahead, whether that's giving yourself extra time to get to work or bringing some allergy medication along for the ride.

Previously an email and text-based service that offered weather updates "in a way that makes sense to the user," Poncho realized how many people were waking up to their services anyway and pivoted accordingly.
