Keeping you updated on what you need to know about the weather, the Poncho platform sends you cute and smart weather report text messages. After asking for your information and aggregating your data, Poncho is able to tell what kind of weather notices you will need.

The web app analyzes information such as your zip code, when you wake up, what time you leave your house and whether or not you drive. It can then send you a text message or email before you start your day so that you know what to expect. As a result, you can easily be prepared for whatever weather-based challenges lie ahead.

Poncho is currently only available for New York City. If you're not in the city, you can sign up to get an email when the service expands to your location. Stats for Personalized Weather-Predicting Apps Trending: Older & Mild
