Meet Brella, a beautiful and thoughtful weather app that takes the "um" out of the forecast and delivers your personalized weather forecast daily! NEW - Alexa Support There’s a new virtual assistant in town, and one with some weather-related Personality. Just say "Alexa, ask Brella Weather..." for your personalized forecast, what the weather will be like, or just what to wear. Brella even has custom Personality phrases for her new home! Visit Brella’s settings to connect your phone to Alexa and hear just how personable some of her lines are. Beautiful, Thoughtful Design Brella streamlines the crowded weather forecast down to its most essential elements. Bold, vibrant colors indicate the temperature at a glance, while temperature and conditions are presented with crisp, bold text. The hourly forecast provides a clean, yet detailed look at the day’s weather, while the daily forecast makes comparing temperature ranges nearly instantaneous. Playful Personality While we were teaching Brella how to translate your wardrobe into a readable forecast, we might have let this super-powered AI spend a little too much time online. From pop culture and movie references to delightful messages and cheesy compliments, Brella adds that personal touch in a personalized daily forecast that will make you smile, cringe, or sminge. Look for seasonal updates! Daily Notifications Always checking the weather in the morning to see what to wear?

  • Great app, but not connecting to Alexa

    By weirdev
    I keep getting a connection failure message (we couldn’t connect to our servers) when trying to connect to Alexa, and as it suggests, I tried again later, and no cigar. I love the idea of the app but the real functionality for me comes in connecting it to Alexa. Can this get fixed? Or is there a step I missed?
  • Notifications don’t work

    By whatisthis nickname shi
    The UI/UX is well conceived and executed for the most part, but I’ve never actually received a notification in the morning. First thing I did was check the notification settings- still no fix
  • Can’t tolerate pink

    By TexPhan
    And yes, I’m a girl. The pink is hard on three eyes making it difficult to look over the weather
  • aye!!

    By linlinlindwa
    loving this app!! one question though, does the app also tell you the air quality and stuff? If not, that would be greatly appreciated :-)
  • Great design, what about forecast?

    By ramm93
    Today (August 06th) Madrid’s forecast was (and still is!) Clear. Well, there’s a thunderstorm right now and I am all wet because I did not bring an umbrella with me, because there was 0% chance of rain... thanks, Brella.
  • Best daily weather app yet!

    By DQ Racing
    VERY well thought out and designed daily weather forecast! Giving the designers two thumbs up for this one👍👍 ...users, don’t forget to head over to the settings and adjust your personal settings for wind, rain, etc. so you get a notification tailored exactly for you. Love this one guys!
  • Brella review

    By Sureno Witch
    This is a really good app. Need to do better weather forecasts, so you know what to wear each day. Also it should show me what to bring in my shrine kit and what to pack in my bag for the day. Did you tell me what shoes to wear wear. Issues show me places around the city to shrine and make witches ladders. Preferably secluded natural areas that are easily accessible on foot.
  • GREAT APP! One Request!!

    By Zachlmiller
    I love this app...bold colors and print make this sleek and eye catching. Also, the funny comments work perfectly with the daily weather. One request, please put on Apple Watch! Get this app it is amazing!
  • Creepy

    By madison284
    I really liked the app at first but then it started to send notifications that were a little creepy at the beginning. One of them was, “I could break that passcode it 0.2 seconds, you call that a lock screen?” Then it proceeded to say the weather as normal.
  • Like it

    By Samanthax18
    I really like the design and sleekness. But I am disappointed it doesn’t have any function or notification for humidity and I couldn’t find the dew point. If that was included I would continue to use.
