About this app

Fotocast is revolutionary and powerful real-time hyperlocal weather forecast app tailored for professional photographers. Fotocast has weather info like any other high-rated weather forecast app, but is custom made for photography with many additional photography weather tools you won't find in any other app. And best of all, it's ad-free and has Android Wear (watch) support!

Introducing Fotoscore™
See a simple score from 0 to 10 telling you if conditions outside are optimal for photography, based on your photographer type!

Real-time Minutely Hyperlocal Forecasts
Never get your camera wet again! See precipitation information minute by minute, configure alerts when rain is starting, and more! Note: Minutely forecasts are only supported in USA, United Kingdom, and some of Canada.

Photography suggestions based on weather conditions and the gear you own!
See helpful photography tips and suggestions that automatically change based on weather conditions and the type of photographer that you are, as well as tips for future weather conditions. Save your photography gear into the intuitive database and configure which weather conditions you need them for!

Photography session manager

Alerts, notifications & customizations
Fotocast lets you configure more types of weather alerts for any location than any other app. Want to know if the wind speed is going to be low at your favorite pond or lake so you can get some nice reflection shots on the water? Fotocast has you covered. Want to know if it's going to be foggy so you can take some creatively killer shots? Fotocast does that too! The interface of Fotocast is fully customizable, as well. Pick any color you want to use as a theme, hide weather conditions that aren't important to you, change font style and more!

Animated Radar & Maps
Track the path of precipitation around you with animated radar. Fotocast also includes many other weather maps for any type of weather condition... even a light pollution map for night time photographers!

Almanac (historic weather)
It's theorized that weather patterns often repeat themselves on the same day each year. With Fotocast's built in Almanac, you can research what the weather conditions were on any day for many years in the past. Take it a step further than any other weather almanac by automatically analyzing weather conditions on that day for the past 50 years, and produce an average weather condition!

Sunny 16 Rule Indicator
Automatically changing Sunny 16 rule indicator based on current weather condition.

Photography Calculators
We've packed 11 handy photography calculators into Fotocast!

Sun/Moon Direction Tool

It's fantastic to have 1 app that does it all instead of multiple apps. Pair this with Photopills, and everything a photographer needs is there. The upgrade is well worth the price. Also, any and questions and concerns have been promptly answered by the developer. As with most apps, it takes consistent use to become familiar with it, but it has been totally worth the time.

This app has been really accurate for predicting the weather and where the sun will set/rise in respect to my usual photography haunts. I love that I can also add photos from any of my previous photoshoots to the map section, and remember what the area looks like ahead of a trip. That feature alone is one that I haven't found in any other apps. There are a lot of really cool features, that are both fun to use, and extremely useful. I honestly can't recommend it enough!

I was mostly interested in getting notifications about fog predictions, though it doesn't seem to exist in app. I started the premium trial to dig in more and in the 14 day forecast every day is labeled as a zero for the "fotoscore", but on the "now" tab, at 9pm, it's labeled as a "6" for a wildlife photographer, when it's pitch black out? There's a lot of cool features but ultimately they don't seem to all work well. Also what do the colored "F"s mean on the forecast tab? Who knows?
