It’s a free, entertaining, and easy way to share your weather--whether you’re basking in sunshine or running from the hail--on your iPhone. With a few taps of the finger, Weathermob lets you report on the weather, your mood, and what you’re up to. They’re a friendly global community of weather reporters; they log on to express themselves, be inspired, plan vacations, and live vicariously

Problem

Fix the scalability issues. Develop an ability to create channels for locations or tags that a user wanted to follow.

Solution

The foremost goal of this project was to solve the scalability issues of the first version of Weathermob. We had to create a system that was able to grow reliably along side its community. While upgrading and improving the existing system, it was important that Weathermob maintained its current user base. Through the delicate process of data migration CognitiveClouds was able to move all user data over to the new system with little to no issue and without losing any data. Version 2 also included a number of new design considerations.

Results

All of this culminated in the rapid deployment of a stable and solid Weathermob that was more enjoyable and easier than ever to use.

Since the launch of Version 2, Weathermob has been able to hang several major accomplishments to their walls. They have been featured in the Apple App Store, enjoyed a number 17 ranking in the Apple App Store in Japan, and raised an additional $650K.
